Hello JassOdyssey fans, this is J. A. Rollins. Over the years, I’ve been writing the JassOdyssey book series, as well as composing music that will serve as the soundtracks for the audiobooks (music is available for listening at www.jassodyssey.com). I don’t know which one I like best–lucky for me I can do both.
It’s Time For A Contest!!!
I like writing the music–it seems to flow directly from the books. That’s the easy part. Most of the time I can come up with a title for the song, but sometimes it’s a little difficult. That’s where I need your help. I will send the songs out like I’ve done before. Take a listen, let me know what you think, and then come up with a song title. If it sounds good, we’ll use your suggestion as the name of the song. For winning, you get to choose a book from the series–either Book One, Book Two, Book Three, Book Five, or the soon to be release Book Four, which will be available later on this year. I will even put your name on the Acknowledgement page in a future book. The only catch, is the title of the song must be related to something in the book. The subject matter can be about Miles, Roland, Park, Marie, or any other character mentioned in the book series. For those who choose to participate, they can only submit one suggestion per song, and can only win one book as part of this ‘Name the song and win a book’ contest (but don’t worry, there will be other contests in the future).
I’ve even made it super easy for those who have not yet read the book. If you visit my website (www.jassodyssey.com
), and click on ‘Books’ at the top of the page, you can hear the Introduction, as well as the first seven chapters of the book. They were narrated by Mykel Hunter. Take a listen. The introduction as well as the first seven chapters are Part 1 of Book One. Other audiobooks will follow. So put on your thinking caps and take a listen. (One bit of warning: sometimes it takes a while before the songs load).
And as I always say, Take the Test, Take the Journey!!!
