Have others of you had success in mixing songs and poetry into mystery and romance?
Sure! Snippets of songs or bits of poetry can be used as epigrams at the beginning of a story (or chapter).
Songs or poems can be part of the story environment: A song might be playing on a radio, or a character might recite (or remember, or create) a piece of poetry.
Songs and poetry in a story might be anywhere you'd find them in real life. Use your imagination, and have fun!
Try this one, Gravity's Rainbow - Thomas Pynchon.
I would like to read a sample chapter. Do you have one online somewhere? If so please send me a link.
