Not long ago someone asked in a comment about audio versions of any of my romances, and I replied that nothing like that was on the horizon. That was true at the time and may still be true, but coincidentally there is now a thread in the Writers’ Cafe section of Kindle Boards discussing audio books. It seems just as Create Space is an Amazon company that makes it possible for indie authors like me to put out trade paperbacks for those who still love paper, there is an Amazon company that does the same for audio books. The discussion makes it sound very doable and worth doing, so I’m going to investigate further.
The fact is, however, I’ve never “listened” to a book in my life. (Something I’ll remedy as part of my investigation.) So I’m curious for those of you who do listen to books, what do you want in a romance? For instance, Dancing on Coals, is told primarily from Katherine’s point of view. I’d guess Eyes, Sing and Bad Man might split closer to 50-50, although I’ve never calculated. If I were to listen to a romance, I think I’d prefer a male voice, but wouldn’t that get creepy in a sex scene from a female POV? And vice versa? If anyone has any thoughts on the whole thing, I’d love to hear them. (Hmm. And right there is a “hear” meaning “read.” It’s a tangle.)
News: The Maldivian Book Reviewer has just posted a very nice review of Beautiful Bad Man on her website. I know she also posts to Goodreads but don’t know if it’s there yet.
