Listen and Enjoy Audio Books

Hi Friends, 

When my novel, The Governess of Highland Hall, came out as an audio book in 2013, I decided to try a free trial membership at Audible so I could listen and see how the narrator had interpreted the characters and story. Once I started listening, I discovered I loved the audio book experience! Even though I knew my own stories so well, it was really enjoyable to hear someone else reading it aloud.

Since then I’ve listened to a new book each month, including old classics like Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice; and new novels by some of my favorite authors like Cathy Gohlke, with Secrets She Kept, and Laura Frantz with The Colonel’s Lady and Moonbow Night.

 

All three books in the Edwardian Brides Series are available on audio and Shine Like the Dawn is also releasing in audio, eBook, and paperback on February 21st. Anne Flosnik is the narrator of the audio version, and I’m so pleased that she was chosen to read Shine Like the Dawn!

 

Anne is an accomplished British actress with lead credits for stage, TV, commercials, voiceovers, and audio books. She has over 450 audio book titles, in all genres, to her credit, along with several awards and distinctions. These include an American Library Associate Special Service for Children Award, three AudioFile Earphone Awards, USA Today Recommended Listening, and four Audie Nominations, including “Anna And the King of Siam,” the book on which “The King and I” is based.

Do you enjoy listening to audio books? What are some of your favorites?

Until next time – Happy Reading and Listening!

New Audio Book and Giveaway

Daughter of Highland Hall AudioHi Friends,

Have you ever listened to an audio book? When The Governess of Highland Hall released in audio a few months ago, I decided to download it and listen. And I was surprised to discover I loved hearing the story read aloud, not just because I’d written it, but because the narrator’s style and pace allowed me to picture the story in my mind and enjoy it in a new way.

Since then I’ve listened to Jan Karon’s new book, Somewhere Safe and Somebody Good, and I loved it! I listened to Edenbrooke and Blackmoore, both by Julianne Donaldson. They are beautiful Regency romances, very clean and proper. And I also enjoyed Sarah Ladd’s newest book, A Lady at Willowgrove Hall. I recommend all these books to you!
