It’s official! I’ve got several audiobooks in the making, and I am unbelievably excited! I wanted to make them since I first started publishing, but I thought it was out of my price range. It kind of is, but I’m told that they also help you sell books, so I’m hoping it’ll all even out. *Gnaws on nails.*
Right now, I’ve got Benjamin Fife narrating The Puppeteer, the very first novel I published. Lauren Rodriguez is working on book 2 in The Madison Meyer Mystery series and doing an amazing job so far too. Susie Kinlock is working on Ill-Omened and also rocking it. And just today, production began on Friends and Foes (The Druid Heirs). Those are my favorites of my books, but please don’t tell the others. I don’t want them to have hurt feelings. 🙂
I spend so much time listening to audiobooks, as well as using the text-to-speech function on my Kindle. I do love that feature, but the audiobooks are SO much better! The odd mispronunciations the Kindle makes are not made by the narrators, or at least they haven’t done it so far! There have been a couple of words here and there that make me scratch my head, wondering exactly where my narrators are from, but I’m cool with them all. They have done such an amazing job.
As of now, The Girl in White is my only published audiobook. I think by the end of the summer, I should have several others. I’ve only had one person so far contact me to tell me how much he liked the audiobook. I’m hoping there will be more, not just for my sake, but for the sake of my narrators. They deserve SO much credit!
Personally, I’m listening to The God in the Shed by J-F Dubeau. It’s kind of gruesome, but also intriguing. It’s what I’ve been listening to while I’m on my treadmill. And yeah, it does feel good to run while listening to it. Maybe I won’t be killed by the creature/god if I can keep running!
Anyway, I really hope you go and buy The Girl in White. I’m told it’s entertaining and Maddie is a fabulous character. Come on. You know you want to hear it. 😉
