I have to admit, my audio book listening has slowed down over the years. I do still occasionally enjoy one, but now, when I am in the car, my daughters get to pick. And for whatever reason, they NEVER want to listen to books that I enjoy! No, instead it's the Elmo CD we all have memorized or the latest...the Dora the Explorer Big Sister DVD. This is highly confusing because my youngest goes around signing "I'm going to be a big sister," though I assure her that is really NEVER going to be the case. :)
Anyway, back to the topic... because of my love of books in general and because of my background in radio, I have always wanted to record audio books myself. How cool would it be to sit in a studio, read a book out loud and get paid for it as if it was a job?! Someday, when my girls are in school, I hope to dabble in such a career when I am not writing. But for now, I only have an hour a day and no quiet studio.
So, has my excitement caught on? Are you asking yourself how you can get it to enjoy as well??? Keep reading and soon, you too will be listening away! :)
The "Accept this Dandelion" audiobook is available on Audible.com. You can search for it or just click HERE and it should come up for you. In case you haven't heard of Audible, let me tell you a little bit about it. It's for audio book lovers, a website where you can get all the audio books you can imagine. Now, when you go to the website, you can sign up for a FREE month's trial. You can use your already existing Amazon account or you can create a new account, either way works. You get a FREE book along with that 30 day trial. I would be MORE than honored if you would download "Accept this Dandelion" as your free trial book.
After your 30 days trial is up, you will be charged for your membership each month. If you're an avid audiobook listener, you might appreciate the options you have with Audible. If you just want to hear this one book, you can cancel the membership at any time, even during the free 30 day trial period so you NEVER get charged for ANYTHING and you still get a free audio book out of the deal.
I haven't had a chance to listen to the whole book yet myself, but I took a sneak listen and the reader's voice is very pleasant and appropriate. If you listen to all of it before me, please let me know what you think! In the meantime, I'm walking around with a smile on my face knowing people can LISTEN to my words as well as READ them. How cool is that!?
P.S. In case you're looking for bargains, my books Someone Always Loved You and Beyond the Bars are both on sale via kindle for .99 through July 4th. Happy Independence Day to you! Download them through the links on my website in the books section!
