After getting valuable feedback from several brilliant beta readers, I recently finished making another round of revisions to my contemporary fantasy Enthralled. Longtime readers of this blog will remember the story as ZF-360; that was my working title for my retelling of Mozart's The Magic Flute set in modern-day Manhattan and the Hudson Highlands among the elusive Irish Travellers.
Well, I've entirely rewritten since I first came up with the story, and I'm very happy with it now. Irish folk music figures heavily in the story. My male protagonist plays in a Celtic fusion band and receives an Abell ZF-360 pennywhistle as a gift.
As I went through the printed manuscript, catching tiny errors on virtually every page, I also made a list of all the (real) songs I mention in the story. Most are Irish folk songs, but some are not. Here's the playlist, with links where available:
"Katie Campbell's Rambles"
"Summer is Coming"
