[Novella] Geoff and Katie’s Playlist

At first glance of this post’s title, you may have thought we’ve lost our minds. However, we assure you that this post is completely intended! We haven’t lost our minds. That we know of.

We think you’ll agree that music and writing go together– if those things weren’t linked, you would be rifling through some list of MP3’s on the net for new tracks and Music Ninja wouldn’t be the success it is today. We feel that you appreciate our insight which is why we love to blend these two things together. With that being said, one of our contributors has done just that, only in the form of an entertaining piece of fiction.

You may have read pieces from A Servant here on TMN. Well, aside from writing for us and writing a personal blog, he also is a novelist. Today we’re bringing you a sample of his work
from his novella, Geoff and Katie’s Playlist. We feel like this was a good fit for TMN based on the nature of the book. This dual narrative story has a unique set up in that the chapters are titled with recognizable song titles. A Servant did this for a specific reason; he wanted to set the soundtrack for this story. So think of each song title as the mood for that particular chapter.

Geoff and Katie’s Playlist is an easy read, entertaining, and heavily entwined with the music world we all live in. We’re happy to feature the first two chapters here on the site, but if you’re really interested, A Servant has made this available for free download for the next five days. Happy reading!

I’ve never entirely understood, but then again, they don’t live on for thousands of years like I do, do they? They can’t change forms to any living being they see, can they? I suppose it’s only natural that they be attached to their names, as their names differentiate their forms from others like them.
