I’m a huge fan of music. I love listening to it for every occasion and moment possible. Of course, I have music designated for when I was writing Soulmates. I even made specific music for each relationship and character on my iTunes!
When writing the relationship between Marciella and Damon, there is a variety of music. There had to be music for the beginning, when they were unfamiliar with each other, and how it blossomed into what it did. In fact, these are all the songs from my playlist for Marciella and Damon:
- Come a Little Closer — Cage the Elephant
- Between the Raindrops — Lifehouse
- Relax My Beloved — Alex Clare
- Crazy In Love (2014 Remix) — Beyoncé
- Say Something — A Great Big World
- A Thousand Years — Matt McAndrew
- Warriors — Imagine Dragons
- Les Champs-Elysées– Joe Dassin
The relationship between two Soulmates is a sacred and treasured thing. It is pure love and being with one another completely. There are fights and disagreements, of course, but overall your relationship with your Soulmate is usually one of the most important things in your life.
In Soulmates, the main couple is Marciella Hart and Damon Axel. They are complete opposites in almost every way, which was fun to pair together. Despite their differences, they compliment each other. I love their relationship so much because it truly grows throughout Soulmates. It gets stronger and more passionate with each page.
The relationship between Arthur and Melanie is a bit more loving instead of passionate. Arthur and Melanie find peace within each other and use the other to stay grounded. Instead of being driven mad by passion and anger and fighting, they are warm and soft to each other, accepting and understanding.
Every relationship between Soulmates is different, as is every couple. There are no two that are the same. Writing the different couples and how they interacted was a bit different for me because they are so complex. I hope you like them!
Damon was probably one of the harder characters to write. He is the Soulmate to Marciella Hart and one of the rebel leaders for the Combatants.
The hardest thing was the transition from soldier to Soulmate because Damon was raised to be the perfect weapon by his father, Blake. And now, Marciella is a part of his life and he doesn’t know how to act. It was super funny to write because of how strange it was for the characters.
It definitely leads to an interesting dynamic between the two characters through the book. It was a bit strange to write about their relationship because it is so different from anything I’ve ever read. Their relationship was always changing, always shifting into something different or more complex.
I hope to write a novella from Damon’s perspective when I’m done with the trilogy. Would you be interested in that? Leave a comment below!
