Dont think I agree with you, Robert that a book has to be read in a certain way to enjoy it, but I did very much like the links that Calaf68 posted, and it got me to wondering. As I bought this book on Kindle, would it not be possible to provide links within the text? Or are there copyright problems? I think that would make a big difference to the reception of the book

Heledd:

An Ebook version with downloadable clips would be fantastic, but would require major work regarding copyright issues. I also think a CD inside the print book called the Music of Tempesta's Dream would also be beneficial. But again, copyright would be an issue. I think if it sells a million copies, I will gladly begin the leg work of revising the work to add these two tools, and seek permission for the copyright use, which I would imagine will cost a pretty penny.

Yes. But it is probably different if I am using it relative to sales. Not sure about all of that though.

I was chatting with my wife about this book, who was surprised that I liked it, since the love story looks like a potboiler penny dreadful cliche in her opinion. I suppose there is some connection between the popular bodice ripper romance genre and the sort of operatic tragic love story from The Force of Destiny. But just because this romantic motif has a universal appeal and resonance does not mean its use in cheap formulas exhausts its content. Mills and Boon is not my thing, but romance within the context of showing how and why opera is a great art form is something different.

I think it is a simple love story because of where these two individuals are in their life. Isabella is in high school/ just starting college. Giovanni is 25, but he is inexperienced and really has not grown up. So, their love story, of course, would be simple. For me anyway, life was a lot less complicated before you grow up, own a house, have bills, etc, etc. I guess my comment would be if Giovanni was a full blown tenor with a music career in full blossom, and Isabella working in her career job, sure that changes the whole dynamic of the story. But that is not the case here. Love blossomed early for them, before the weight of all the "adult" worldly things take hold. I hope that makes sense. But I believe that is why it is a simple love story.Yet, it is a love story with a basis in the operatic world of passion and romance.
