merry & bright: the soundtrack

Now that it's the day after Thanksgiving, it's officially OK to turn your radio stations and playlists over to holiday music. And here's a little something to help you get into the spirit musically.

Today, I'm pleased to welcome a few of my fellow Merry & Bright authors to Change the Word. Each of us picked five songs to accompany our holiday shorts to create a soundtrack for the anthology.

Soundtrack for A Very Dixie Christmas by Lauren Clark

Soundtrack for Twelve Drummers Drumming by Laura Chapman

Soundtrack for Ice Dating by Nancy Scrofano

Soundtrack for Meet Me Under the Mistletoe by Isabella Louise Anderson

You can listen to the full Merry & Bright soundtrack on Spotify:

From sunny Los Angeles to the Rocky Mountains to the Deep South, Merry & Bright will take you on a heartwarming adventure you'll love to visit again and again. Wrap yourself in holiday mirth and prepare to be swept off your feet.
