Hope Franke Strauss: The Artists

The Artists

The Minstrel Series is a collection of books set in the singer-songwriter world. As such, I'm able to invite in real life Indie artists to collaborate with me in this project. They provide the lyrics and music for the characters. Each book features two to four original songs remade by one of the artists for the purpose of this series. I include artist links and links to their original versions of the songs (where applicable) in the back matter of the books.

Let me introduce you!
