My history with audiobooks
I have to admit, I'm not big on audiobooks, but there was one time that they were a large part of my life: family road trips. My siblings and I would beg for "The Storm Testament" (abridged to be appropriate for families). I first experienced "The Life of Pi" in audio, joining in the adventures of a boy and his tiger. I traveled through the past in "Tennis Shoes among the Nephites". My mother and I listened to a delightful scandinavian narrator read "Fire of the Covenant" as we drove through Salt Lake City. (Yes, most of these are religious fiction from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).
Now one of my books is out in audio!
I've had a great experience working with my narrator, Talon David. She does some amazing accents for the fantasy characters. We've been working on this project for about three months, and I'm delighted to present the results to you now. For those too busy to read, or who prefer to listen while doing some other task, or those trying to find a measure of peace while crammed into a car with many other listeners, I hope you enjoy Mira's Griffin in audio.
