The Blind Side playlist

Next up on the writing schedule is Blind Side, Book six in the Dangerous Ground series. It's been a while since I've written  anything about former DSS agents William Brandt and Taylor MacAllister, but I'm currently listening to Point Blank, which is the entire series collected in audio and narrated by Derrick McClain, and it's proving a very helpful refresher.

Since the series was already in audio (narrated by the wonderfully talented Adrian Bisson), you might be wondering why I decided to re-record it, and I suppose it's like remaking a favorite movie. Just because you have a great version, doesn't mean that you wouldn't enjoy another director's take or seeing another actor play the part of some beloved character. I like Derrick's work a lot and I thought it would be interesting to see what he brought to the series. I'm really enjoying listening, and I think you will too.

Meanwhile, here's the blurb for Blind Side.

With resources already overstretched, the last thing Will and Taylor need is another client.

And the last thing Will needs is for that client to turn out to be an old boyfriend of Taylor's.

But Ashe Dekker believes someone is trying to kill him, and Taylor is determined to help--whatever the cost.



Safe to say there will be some heartbreak this time around, but Will kind of brought it on himself. ;-)


And here's the playlist...

  2. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about the new audio, as well as the new book. I'm prepared for some heartbreak, no really I am. Sigh. I am all breathless waiting for this book. Or maybe that's the humidity!

  4. I suppose it's payback karma for all the David Bradley incidents he put Taylor through... haha.

    Looking forward to it. I should try the new audiobook too to refresh :-)

    1. It's really fascinating listening to different narrators tackle the same material.

  6. Yeah, love Will, but he has it coming after everything he's put Taylor through. BTW, came across an "interview" with a certain David Bradley that made me want to drop-kick him across the room, grrrr. I think I might be a wee bit too invested in your MCs :)

  7. If I say that I'm looking forward to seeing Will suffer, does that make me an evil person?

  11. Great play list -- as always! I love that you share the feel of the upcoming book with us in the form of music. I'm all for combining different art forms, so I always hugely enjoy your book play lists. And I'm definitely looking forward to Blind Side itself! Have fun writing, Josh!

  12. Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.

    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix
    this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

  13. No Emmylou Harris!? Will would not approve. Looking forward to reading it. I am currently reading - and loving - Come Unto These Yellow Sands.
