Do You Love Audiobooks and Audible?

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

I sure do! I’m deep into Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series.  Love the narrator, Lorelei King.

This month, I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks.  I love them when driving and also when I’m exercising, with the exception of swimming! I’m on book #2 of Patricia Briggs’, Mercy Thompson series (Blood Bound #2) and also just started Sky Woman Falling by Kirk Mitchell.  This was surprised to learn it opens in my corner of Upstate New York!  I also have Sleeping Beauties: A Novel by Stephen Kin and Owen King.  That one is appropriate for Halloween, I’m certain!

Part of my current obsession with Audio is the convenience.  I used to have those cassette apes rattling around in my car wheel wells or have to change the CD while driving on the highway. No more!  I can listen uninterrupted for hours, as I did with the first Mercy Thompson book that took me from PA to GA while I drove on I-81.  Sweet!

Another function I love about listening to Audible books on my iTouch is that I can set the sleep timer to say 15 minutes (how embarrassing) or ‘end of chapter’.  This prevents me from waking up at 3 AM and discovering that I am now on Chapter 9 when I last thing I remember was Chapter 2.

Perhaps you are not yet an Audible member.  Well, good news!

 Audible cover for Western Christmas Weddings


I have some big news!

I’ve just finished production of the Audible version of my Christmas release: Western Christmas Weddings.  These three Western winter weddings are sure to warm your heart and wait until you hear my narrator!  He has a wonderful, rich melodic voice just perfect for my stories.  I will be putting an audio excerpt up on my website soon but I could not wait to share the news!

These three Christmas novellas are FINALLY all together in one collection and I am so pleased to bring them to my readers.  The audio version is just over 9 hours and includes: His Brother’s Bride, The Sheriff’s Housekeeper Bride and my RITA nominated novella, Fallen Angel.

I’ve got an excerpt up on my books page.  Here’s the order link for Amazon.

Can You Believe This?

You won’t believe what happened!

First my big news…my Western Christmas novellas are finally all in one collection! I’m so thrilled to bring my readers these three favorite historical romances that were originally published in three different anthology collections, published by Harlequin Historicals.


September 2017 – Pre-Order Now

Available in Kindle, Audible and paperback

For my 2017 Christmas collection…I have kept the titles of each story identical to avoid confusion.   The three novellas titles are:

  • His Brother’s Bride
  • The Sheriff’s Housekeeper Bride
  • Fallen Angel   ** This one was a RITA nominee!**

My original title was WESTERN CHRISTMAS BRIDES, but the minute I finished having the artwork done, Harlequin Historicals posted the title for this year’s Western Christmas anthology.  Can you guess?

It was Western Christmas Brides!!

Can you believe it?

I couldn’t.  Neither could my cover designer.  What a terrible coincidence. After some hand-wringing, I decided to make a change. Two Western historical Christmas anthology collections out the very same month with the very same title would be too confusing and who would believe I had not just come up with the same title, besides you? Add to this that Harlequin is my publisher and you see my problem. Titles cannot be copyrighted which is why you see many books with the same title–but generally not in the same month!  I hope I made the right decision.

I’m very proud of these Christmas stories and know you will enjoy reading them again or for the first time, so I hope you’ll pre-ordering this Christmas collection

Beauty’s Beast on Audible

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Spent the afternoon on the patio listening to an audiobook–Beauty’s Beast!

I finally joined Audible.  I’ve been thinking about if for a long time and then at my last reading I met a young woman who told me that she had been the reader for my latest release.  I hadn’t even known that my April Nocturne, BEAUTY’S BEAST, had come out in audio.  It was the push I needed to become a member.  So today I listened to the first six chapters of my latest paranormal romance as read by Kelly LaGault.  I don’t think listening to my words come to life is quite the thrill as holding my first release, but it is a damn close second!

Here is the link to Audibles.  You can go and listen to a sample for free.  I hope you’ll give this audiobook a try and I hope it is the first of many more!
