Carina Press that the very cool Audible.com will produce an audiobook for CAPTIVE SPIRIT. Naturally, being the mature adult that I am, I was calm, cool, and collected when I got the news. NOT!
I danced around the house like an idiot, smiling till my cheeks hurt. Then I wolfed down half a bag of chocolate-covered espresso beans. (Fortunately I had just gotten back from a long run at my local gym.) And my original plans for plowing through at least sixty pages of edits? Totally got kicked to the sidelines. I couldn't concentrate for three hours, waiting for my heartbeat to slow from all of the excitement. Of course, I had to call my husband, my sister, my parents, the mailman, strangers walking down my street. Anyone who'd listen.
I've been asked by a couple of people who the reader will be for my book. I don't know the answer to that question yet, but in my head I can almost hear the voice. I'm sure Audible will get it right. They produce quality work. And as soon as I can share, I will let you know.
If you're not familiar with Audible, it's a cool way to download books to your iPod, MP3, cell phone, and a whole host of other devices. If you travel a lot or if you travel a lot in your car, it's a cool way to "read" books. Check them out!
In the meantime, excuse me while I continue my snoopy happy dance. And my edits for my current WIP.
Back to reality.
