Let My Book Speak to You…
Can you hear me now? I mean literally. Have you ever thought about listening to an audiobook? Several of my books are available for listening and more are coming. Audiobooks are awesome because you can get lost in a story while you’re cooking, cleaning, crafting, or whatever. I love them for long road trips. They make the time fly.
But there is a lot of work that goes into creating and producing an audiobook. One of the things that I have to do is listen to auditions of narrators who would like to read a book to you, gentle reader. So, just for the fun of it, please give a listen to this snippet from Talmadge Ragan’s audition to narrate Love, Lies, & Typewriters! She’s quite the professional.
And just for fun, here is me trying to be a professional narrator! I am reading from Locket Full of Love!
I hope you’ll check out my books over at Audible and give a listen. Listening really frees you up to do more!

You did a great job. You are a good actor too! I tried this same thing and was horrified at my voice. Your voice takes on both character’s well and you give more emotions than the other lady.
Thank you, Connie!
Excellent job .
Thank you, Mary! LOL
You did great! As someone who just started reading for audiobooks, it’s hard. A few minutes takes three times as long with all of the audio cleanup needed behind the scenes. 🙂
I would not want to do this for a living. It IS hard!
Excellent job! As someone who just started reading for audiobooks, I know how much time goes into them. Just a few minutes of recording takes so much more time after all of the behind-the-scenes audio cleanup is done.
