I have enjoyed a great week, and wanted to share some of the more exciting parts with you! I don’t know which one to tell first. Dogs, Bees, which one? They’re both equally as cool! So let’s just start off with the mutual topic at hand – books! I’ve got an audiobook about dogs coming out and a new novel about bees as well! woot! woot! Two lovables I absolutely adore with every ounce of my being.
Okay let’s start with the audiobook news. A New Leash on Life is going to be made into an audiobook! It will be released in April. The talented Clara Nipper of Sounds Good Studios will be narrating and producing the audiobook version for me. When I heard her audition, I got all warm and fuzzy inside. She just ‘got’ Chloe and Olivia. My inner voice cheered, and I messaged her right away to get the ball rolling. I am so excited about this new partnering venture!
I decided to contract a narrator and producer this time around instead of tackling the project myself. In March 2015, I released The Muse on Audible. I worked hard on learning the secrets to narration and production for over two years, and figured out the Audible system requirements enough to pull it off. Overall I was pleased with the results, but I realized it took a lot of time away from my writing. So, in refocusing on my priorities, I decided my best use of time and energy is in writing books. I’ll leave the narration and production up to the pros! Just wait until you hear Clara’s soothing voice!
Next bit of my excitement I want to share is that The Dance is available for pre-order now via Amazon. It is being released on February 16, 2016, and the pre-order price is at a discount until then. So, I’d love for you to go grab a pre-order spot and enjoy the savings.
So, now that all the excitement has left me breathless, a lot of people have been asking me what I am doing in my downtime. Well, as I wait for my final edits from my editing team, I am taking a small writing hiatus. Not a break from the writing business end though! There’s lots of work to be done for the book launch. I will be working hard on getting this story the publicity it needs to be discovered by readers. It is a lot of work to get a book launched, and I plan to fully devote my time to that task. I welcome interviews and reviews, so if you are someone who loves to do just that, please get in touch with me. I’d love to have a chat!
Thank you for your support, always. It means the world to me!
