When I write a book I ALWAYS have a playlist. I can’t write without music pumping in my ears. I have special earbuds that fit just right and I close myself away in my office then I write. For hours… and hours…

Although my brain doesn’t focus on the music, because it gets lost in the story that is pouring out of me, it does begin to associate those songs and those words and the meaning and feel of each song to the book.

I asked for reader help building my playlist for Never Too Far. I keep going back to the same artist for all my music and I wanted to broaden my horizons. I believe I have with this playlist. I found some excellent music that I would have never come across without the help of YOU. So thank you.
