Free Audio Book

The moment has arrived when I can finally say “it’s here!”

The Inner Secrets Audio Book is here.  And it’s FREE!

audio bookAh… after eight months of hard work, I’m done with recording and editing the Inner Secrets Audio Book.

As a special gift of gratitude for all the support I received in the reading and writing community, I’ve decided to give this audio book away as a gift to you all. It was such a pleasure recording it, and I want as many people as possible to enjoy it!

The Pleasure of Making an Audio Book

During the process of recording this audio book, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the talented musician, E. Joseph. He wrote and produced the theme music for the book trailer and chapter breaks, Follow Your Heart. He has also generously offered to allow free downloads of this song too!

Recording this has been an adventure, for sure!

I’ve learned a ton, of course through trial and error, and am excited to continue recording many more books in the future.

This Audio Book is Special to Me

Inner Secrets will always be near and dear to me because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced my books on such an intimate level. While narrating, my characters took me on a whole new emotional trip. Narrating gave me new perspective into their struggles and triumphs and allowed me to feel their emotions on a level so far beyond what I did when I actually wrote the book. Every morning, as I sat in my recording room and dove into Hope and Lucy’s life, I embraced an incredible feeling of intimacy, honesty, and rawness.

I invite you to come listen to Hope and Lucy’s story. You’ll also be able to download Follow Your Heart.

Wishing you all the best,

Suzie Carr

P.S. Do you enjoy listening to an audio book?

Recording an Audio Book – wow!

UPDATE: Inner Secrets Audio Book is live and FREE!

I’ve been working hard at getting my audio book  files for Inner Secrets perfected according to’s standards. I’ve learned quite a bit. I was using the wrong kind of microphone, wrong settings on my audio editing software, and recording in a room where the airplanes could be heard! argh! That hasn’t stopped me. I learned form the great technicians at Audible and Sweetwater and have since set up a brand new recording environment and purchased all the equipment I need.


Audible’s standards are high because they have an encoding system that requires the files be mastered at a certain range. So, even though this inaugural version of my audio book has not passed those QC standards, doesn’t mean the MP3 files I have ready to go aren’t okay for streaming online. So, l’ve decided to upload them to SoundCloud. I am super happy with how it sounds! I hope you will be, too!

Learning to Record an Audio Book – double wow!

Recording and editing Inner Secrets as an audio book has been quite the learning experience.

Needless to say, the skill sets required are far different than writing the actual book! I recently tapped into experts for their guidance on setting up a home recording studio, narrating, and editing the audio book files. The funnest part of this process for me was getting into my characters’ heads and acting out their parts. I felt connected to them in the most intimate of ways (I’m allowed to blush, right?!)

My First Consideration with my Audio Book…

When I first started to consider turning my novels into audio books, I auditioned many narrators. None of them seemed to get the personalities just right. So, I decided to narrate my books myself. It’s taken me eight months to learn the process and produce, what I hope you’ll find, an enjoyable listen.
