Music is a strong theme in Random Magic by Sasha Soren -- so strong, in fact, that one of the celestial characters Winnie and Henry meet is Efterpe, the Muse of music.
In celebration of music, Halloween and all things spooky, here’s a fun blog hop to check out. You’ll find tidbits about creepy characters from the book -- and some great music picks.
Come enjoy a musical Halloween blog hop with us, we’ve got tunes for ghouls…

Heads Will Roll – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Random Magic excerpt: “The door creaked open. A something stood there…His head floated above his neck, bobbing slightly in the breeze. The only problem -- apart from the obvious, it seemed to Henry -- was that the head was on wrong side up.” (For more go here)

What's Random Magic About?
Summary: When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes. Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is. Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Struths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.
