Can You Hear Me (or My Adventure in the World of Audiobooks)

Can You Hear Me (or My Adventure in the World of Audiobooks)

I have been asked whether my novel, Relations, was available as an audiobook. Crestfallen, I had to admit that it was not.

Well, it will not be that way for much longer for I am delving into that dark and scary but envy-inducing world of audiobooks! Envy-inducing because I have considered the audiobook option for quite a while now and envied those authors who were brave enough to take the plunge. Scary because quite frankly, most things that are unknown to us are scary-at least to me, especially when it comes to contracts and other legal documents. Will it be worth the hard work and sacrifice?

Sacrifice, you say?

Yeah, sure. I mean, look at what day it is! I should be kicking back, savoring Christmas Eve or at least running around the town for last minute bargains. Not!

I’ll keep you appraised of my progress. I have already listened to two auditions! Can you guess what I’m wishing for Christmas?



Review of Diamond in the Rough by Sylvia Hubbard

I would classify this as a short story or maybe a novella. I just happened to come across it when I was reading the Romance Novels of Color newsletter section, Free Reads.

I don’t know if that had anything to do with the formatting issues and there were grammatical issues as well but I really enjoyed it and read the story in one sitting. The family tree was extensive and at times, a little confusing, at least to me. The story had elements of suspense, romance and even comedy when it came to the dialogue toward the end. I would read more from this author.
