One of the songs that inspired Everything She Ever Wanted, was New Mexico by Dorian Spencer. I must have heard it around 2007 or so and I bought it and saved it into my iPod. Whenever I’d feel down, I’d listen to it and it always made me smile. Some songs are just like that – they make your heart and soul happy, and Dorian Spencer’s New Mexico surely did.
Last week, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to see if I could find a video of the song on Youtube so I could link it from the Inspiration page I’d created for Everything She Ever Wanted. Alas, I couldn’t find anything online except for a sample from Dorian’s website. Then I figured that I’d drop him a note to tell him how his song helped inspire my book’s setting. If anything, I wanted him to know just how much I appreciated him and his song.
Well, tonight he sent me this and gave me permission to share it:
Hope you guys like it!
