My Promise, Bolinder’s most recent project, was officially released on Sept. 22 and he has another book set to be released next year.
“A great movie usually has a great soundtrack,” Bolinder said in the trailer explaining My Promise. “So when I started writing My Promise, I asked the question: What would it look like for a novel to have a soundtrack?”
The young author wrote each chapter to a piece of music. Bolinder explained this provides a unique experience for the reader.
The book is a story of a young woman who moves to an island on the West Coast of Canada to study. She is then selected to participate in a class that is held inside a castle and taught by a nameless professor.
“The story revolves around her trying to unravel the purpose of the course,” Bolinder said. “While I wrote My Promise to be entertaining, I hope that it will also encourage you and inspire you to ask some deep questions about life.”
In the author’s note, Bolinder explained he reviewed numerous songs, hundreds to be exact.
“I feel that a healthy balance was struck in selecting tracks that summarized the emotion of each chapter while providing an accurate title.”
