On the podcast today, I dicuss going wide with my audiobooks: changing their ACX exclusive status to non-exclusive and bringing them to more e-retailers and libraries via Findaway Voices.

On ACX you can now do so after 90 days. And Findaway Voices has a template which you can just copy and paste. In addition, I talk about some market data I found in the US and in France about the audiobook market. I also refer and quote from an interview on audiobooks with Nana Malone. She also talks about her writing process and being herself a book cover model (including her own at some point) because there was no/not enough pictures of dark-skinned Black women to represent her characters on covers. And then I go a bit deeper into bringing my French audiobooks to the French-speaking audiobook market.

When it comes to struggles and smiles in my writing and self-publishing week: it includes the roller coaster of emotions that is sending the first 1/3 of #TheLeftoverBride to my critique partners. I’ve been hard at work and am currently polishing the rest of the novel but it is a lot of feelings. 🙂 And more!

A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER retail sample…

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s the biggest player of them all.
They shouldn’t be together. But this summer’s just too tempting.


Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti’s goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother’s best friend—Nick Grawsky—ever existed. It should be easy: He’s spending his summer in the Hamptons, adding girls in tiny bikinis to his list of broken hearts. This summer, Emilia won’t stay awake at night thinking about him. She’ll need flawless ballet movements to have a shot at next year’s showcase, and she’s finally ready to search for her birth parents. But when Nick decides to stay in the city, Emilia’s resolve disappears in a pirouette. Maybe it’s the spin they needed to be together. As long as she doesn’t get stuck believing in happily ever after…

Nick is tired of pretending to be the happy, let’s-have-fun guy. His father wants him to change his career from professional dancer to…lawyer. He needs to put all of his focus on dancing to prove to Daddy Dearest he’s good enough to make it big. And he may have a case of the bluest balls in history courtesy of Emilia. She’s off-limits: The bro code with Roberto even forbids the dirty thoughts he has about her. Besides, he’s not boyfriend material. He only has time for flings, for girls who don’t expect much, for girls he doesn’t want to kiss goodnight. He knows he should resist her, but he’s not sure he wants to…

At least for this summer.
It’s going to be a summer like no other.

It is available on Google Play, Chirp, iTunes, Audible, Amazon, BingeBooks, Kobo, Walmart.

The One With The First Review for the SEE ME, SEE ME NOT audiobook: “Tragic and glorious story…Wonderful narration.”

The first review of the SEE ME, SEE ME NOT audiobook (Available now on Audible –Amazon iTunes) calls the story “both tragic and glorious”. And notes that Megan does “a wonderful job as the narrator.” (side note from me: she does, she really really does.)

Her sister was kidnapped years ago. He just escaped a doomsday cult. Their terrifying pasts won’t let them go. Will they be able to save the people they love before it’s too late?
Available now on Audible – Amazon iTunes.

This is also the moment I discovered I can record my screen directly from my Samsung Phone…so here is the video of me sharing the review on my Instagram stories earlier today…Keep scrolling for the full review and for all the excerpts I shared from the audiobook as well as its trailer!

And here is the full review:

The first thing that drew me to this book was the title. I found it intriguing. As the tale unfolded, I thought that the story was going to be about two teenagers finding love even though they were carrying baggage from their pasts. Then the author added a layer of complexity to the story by weaving in the life of the sister, who had gone missing. I found the characters to be believable and the story to be both tragic and glorious. Megan Carter does a wonderful job as the narrator. I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

Her sister was kidnapped years ago. He just escaped a doomsday cult. Their terrifying pasts won’t let them go. Will they be able to save the people they love before it’s too late?

While still struggling with the crushing horror and guilt over her sister’s unsolved kidnapping years ago, seventeen-year-old Tessa strives to achieve some balance in her life: she cares for her mom, goes to school, works two jobs, and dreams of getting into a college music program. And she’s even reconnecting with her old crush Luke, who stumbled back into town with a sad smile and plenty of secrets. As another fake psychic tricks her mom into giving her lots of money for very little info, part of her still hopes they’ll find Mellie.

Seventeen-year-old Luke didn’t plan on setting foot in Gavert City ever again–even if thinking about Tessa helped him during the years he spent in his stepfather’s doomsday cult. His stepfather could track him here. He could find his little sister who escaped with him. He could make his life hell again. But it’s not like he had a choice. Now, he only has to keep his mouth shut and work his ass off to make his older sister proud. She’s still stuck in the cult with their mother. Maybe he can even find a way to get her out of there too.

Mellie doesn’t remember what it’s like to be with her family. They forgot her anyway. They don’t care. Jeremiah said so. And he knows. He knows everything.

As Luke and Tessa’s terrifying pasts are more linked than they ever realized, will they be able to save the people they love before it’s too late?

The One With A Day Behind The Scenes

Okay, granted, it’s not a full-full day behind the scenes…:-) I do quite a few things before I start my work day and there are certain moments during the day that don’t make it to social media. But, a few days agaon on Instagram, I thought I’d share some of what a day in the life of this author (me) entails.

Writing, of course, but not only writing as you’ll see in the video. If I were to record my work day again next week, it would look slightly different as I am also now recording an audiobook (stories in French to learn French) that I was hired for…

So…why did I decide to share my day in video?

  1. I don’t post regularly and it has been a while since I posted on social media.
  2. I think that this could be interesting/fun (maybe :-)) for: (a) readers, (b) writers, (c) people who know me in real life,

In the video, you’ll see/hear me mention that SEE ME, SEE ME NOT is now available as audiobook (AudibleAmazoniTunes). I am currently working on a promo video for it (stay tuned :-)). I will be sharing bloopers and more with my newsletter subscribers. So, if you haven’t yet, don’t hesitate to sign up here.

SEE ME, SEE ME NOT is the second standalone novel in the Gavert City series. You don’t need to read or listen to the first one to listen/read this one.

For fans of Criminal Minds comes an audiobook full of heartache, mystery, and romance.

After suffering through the horror of her sister’s unsolved kidnapping years ago, seventeen-year-old Tessa strives to achieve some balance in her life. While still struggling with crushing guilt over Mellie’s disappearance, she cares for her mom, goes to school, works two jobs, and dreams of getting into a college music program. And she’s even reconnecting with her old crush Luke, who stumbled back into town with a sad smile and plenty of secrets. As another fake psychic tricks her mom into giving her lots of money for very little info, part of her still hopes they’ll find Mellie.

Seventeen-year-old Luke didn’t plan on setting foot in Gavert City ever again–even if thinking about Tessa helped him during the years he spent in his stepfather’s doomsday cult. His stepfather could track him here. He could find his little sister who escaped with him. He could make his life hell again. But it’s not like he had a choice. Now, he only has to keep his mouth shut and work his ass off to make his older sister proud. She’s still stuck in the cult with their mother. Maybe he can even find a way to get her out of there too.

Mellie doesn’t remember what it’s like to be with her family. They forgot her anyway. They don’t care. Jeremiah said so. And he knows. He knows everything.

As their terrifying pasts are more linked than they ever realized, will Luke and Tessa be able to save the people they love before it’s too late? 

Here’s the full retail sample…

The One With An Interview With Audiobook Narrator Megan Carter…

If you’ve been on my website before, especially on this little blog on mine, you know that Megan Carter is the audiobook narrator I have been very lucky to work with. Megan has narrated FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT (AudibleAmazon iTunes) and SEE ME, SEE ME NOT (AudibleAmazon iTunes) and is currently recording A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER as it has gone through some editing changes and I need to update the audiobook. We are also planning the recording of TRUST ME, TRUST ME NOT and ALWAYS SECOND BEST. 🙂 And today I am very much looking forward to sharing a short interview with Megan.

In this interview, she explains how she got into narration and how she decides on voices/tones. She also talks about narrating FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT and even shares who her favorite voice to narrate in FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT is.

Megan’s narration set-up

Megan is a London-based actor from Kansas City, USA. She received her MA in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. She also holds a BA in Theatre from Loyola University Chicago, with minors in in Musical Theatre, Dance, and Shakespeare Studies.

With her strong musical theatre and dance background, Megan especially loves theatre that is highly physical and that involves lots of movement and stage combat. She is passionate about bringing classical works to contemporary audiences in a way that allows people to feel like they have a place in the story and a way to connect to it.

When not working, Megan enjoys reading, running, and practicing yoga. She loves a good road trip, and has been on one hundred and one roller coasters. (More info about Megan on her website: https://megancarter.net/)

If you haven’t heard Megan’s work before, here are a few samples from FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT and SEE ME, SEE ME NOT (I will be linking to more of those samples after the interview transcript).

And now…the interview!

Interview on YouTube
The audio file of the interview with Megan.

Hey, guys. It’s Megan here, the narrator of Fear Me, Fear Me Not, and today, I’m answering some questions about me.

How did you get started in narration?

I have a stage background, specifically Shakespeare, and I found myself, like a lot of people, unemployed during the pandemic. I had been thinking of trying to get into narration for a while because I have other actor friends who do it as a side job, and having so much time on my hands convinced me to finally take the plunge.

Why did you decide to take on Fear Me, Fear Me Not?

I think this book is such a perfect melding of genres, so it has something for everyone. I’m a huge fan of true crime, and without giving any spoilers, there are some specific cases this story reminds me of, and I love the way the suspense builds in the story. But it’s also a romance, a small-town drama, and it’s so packed with all these interesting characters and relationships. I’m just so excited to be bringing this audiobook to life.

How do you decide on the specific voice and tone to do for each character?

I first look for clues in the text, so if it says someone speaks gruffly or if they’re a smoker, and of course, age and gender play a part, as well. Or it might be less explicit than that. A character who’s really aggressive probably wouldn’t have a soft, timid sort of voice. If there are no clues, it’s kind of up to me. I just make sure to make a few notes and bookmark a sound clip so that if it’s a minor character, I can easily revisit and make sure that the voice is consistent across chapters.

No spoilers, but what was the most challenging part of narrating three points of view?

The most challenging part was physical. I try to create voices that are sustainable and healthy for me to produce, but I haven’t done a book with so much narration from a male point of view before. So sometimes, if I had a Dimitri chapter to record early in the morning, I would get voice cracks like a real teenage boy.

And finally, what character was the most fun to narrate?

I love narrating the killer. On stage, I tend to play a lot of villains, and I think it can be really fun to be bad.

Thanks for listening, and I’ll talk to you soon.

The One With FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT First Sentences Friday…

Today is FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT First Sentences on a Friday, and I’m sharing the first sentence of the first ten chapters, narrated by Megan Carter. And yes, I may be enjoying the alliteration quite a bit.

FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT is a suspenseful romance for fans of Criminal Minds. In 17-year-old Erin’s small Texas town, a killer is on the loose. And when her best friend, Nadia, disappears, Erin and Nadia’s brother, Dimitri, race to rescue her — but can they unravel the mystery before it’s too late? And as mentioned, you can grab your copy now: AmazonAudible.comAudible.uk Audible.de Audible.fr iTunes.

Excerpt 1: The One Where The Killer Speaks Once Again.

Audio: The One Where The Killer Speaks Once Again.
Excerpt on YouTube.

That football game was stupid. And the way she looked like she owns the world? Like she owns him? Ridiculous.“Honey, I’m back,” I singsong, and Rachel—hot, malleable, but idiotic Rachel—whimpers on the dirty floor.

Excerpt 2: The One Where Dimitri Gets A Prank Call (or a Call From The Killer?)

Audio: The One Where Dimitri Gets A Prank Call (or a Call From The Killer?)
Excerpt on YouTube.

My voice rises, and Erin gently touches my hand with hers, calming me, soothing me.

And then I hear her…

Rachel screaming for her life.

Blood drains from my face, and my hands shake.

The screaming stops, and a metallic voice whispers, “Mine, mine, mine.”
