Author Guest Post: The Legacy Trilogy by Melissa Delport – Music Playlist + More

Good Morning BookNerds!

I’m super grateful to be a part of the The Legacy Blog Tour and to introduce to you all, Melissa Delport. Melissa was kind enough to stop by and share her music playlist for The Legacy! I hope you enjoy reading (and listening!) to all the songs she listed! Here’s a quick intro to what The Legacy is all about first:


Now I’ll turn it over to Melissa!

By Melissa Delport, author of The Legacy

I am a big lover of music – I always have been, and remember the very first tapes my mom bought me when I turned 11 – The Legacy by Melissa DelportBest of Dolly Parton & Kenny G! Personally, I think she underestimated my desire to own my own music and thought it was simply a childish whim, so she bought music she could listen to when I moved on to my next obsession. That didn’t happen – in fact, in the absence of anything better, I stretched those tapes from playing them so much that they were no use to anyone within a few short months.

Everybody knows that music inspires emotion, and a movie’s soundtrack is almost as important as its casting. I have my own ideas as to what music would go well with certain scenes in The Legacy, but as I do not want to disclose any “spoilers” I will simply list my Movie Soundtrack, in no particular order.


See if you can guess what song matches which scene:

Imagine Dragons        –        Radioactive

Florence & The Machine  –   Never Let Me Go

Depeche Mode          –           Precious

Madonna:                 –             Die Another Day

Jason Walker             –           Down

Plumb                    –                Cut

Taylor Swift
Ft. Gary Lightbody       –           The Last Time

Linkin Park                 –              Burn it Down

Damien Rice              –              9 crimes

Creed                         –               My Sacrifice

Ben Howard                –              Oats in the Water

Sam Smith                 –               Stay With Me

About Melissa

Wife and mother of 3, Melissa Delport is the author of The Legacy Trilogy and the stand-alone self-published e.books Rainfall and The Traveler.

She graduated from the University of South Africa with a Bachelor’s Degree in English in 2000.Melissa Delport

At the age of twenty-four Melissa started a logistics company (Transmax) from the spare room of her flat and built it up to two fully operational depots in Durban and Johannesburg. Now, 10 years later, she has sold her business in order to write full time.

Melissa lives with her husband and three children in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) and The Legion (book 2) are available now and the final book, The Legend, will be released early 2015.

An avid reader herself, Melissa finally decided to stop ‘watching from the sidelines’ and to do what is her passion.

“I was driving home from work when inspiration struck, and a storyline started unravelling in my head. For a few days it was all I could think about and eventually I realised that the only way to get it out of my head, was to put it all down on paper. I started writing, and that was that.”
