#Audiobook / #audiobooks update:
I've justed started "Wilmington's Lie" by David Zucchino, read by Victor Bevine. #history
"Secrets of the Occult" is currently available on Audible Plus, so I listened to the first two lectures last night. I wasn't in the mood for the other stuff. 🤷🏻♀️
#mysterybooks I've been listening to Dan Simmons's book "The Fifth Heart", but, eh. I don't know much about Henry James.
Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: The Memory House by Jenetta James https://twimom227.com/2023/06/listen-up-audiobook-review-the-memory-house-by-jenetta-james.html #Audiobooks, #HarryFrost, #JenettaJames, #Quills&QuartosPublishing, #SophiaReview, #Standalone @Twimom227 @sophiarose1816
I rarely post a review, but I couldn’t not rate and review the wonderful @Carrieinglasgow title, “Carrie kills a man”
If you’re looking for an inspiring and emotional memoir, that’s read by the author, then Carrie’s should be your next listen.
I’ve added Carrie’s blurb about the book below rather than try to write my own! And alongside you’ll find my review.

Good news! 📣 All my audiobooks are currently on sale at Audible!
If you've been hoping to grab MAKE ME NO GRAVE, or any books in my Last Resistance series, now's your chance! 🏃
I'm a #radio person. I like the banter and the ads[*], the callers and the competitions (I've even been on air and won a few, in my time), but I can't do talk radio for the same reason I can't do podcasts and I REALLY struggle to do audiobooks: I just can't focus. Either that, or I find myself focussing too much on the conversation and not getting any work done. ;)
I also work from home. So my radio goes on at 05:00 when I wake up, and stays on until around 15:00 when I finish work for the day... Although I'd be lying if I said it stayed on the same station for all that time. I have 2-3 favourites that I switch between during the day (TuneIn makes that super easy), and I'm not averse to trying something completely different every once in a while, just to mix it up. I'm not loyal to stations. Although I DO tend to be loyal to presenters, so I often tune in to a brand new radio station because I heard one of my favourite personalities is doing a show there.
What do you like to listen to during the day? Podcasts? Audiobooks? Just music? Or are you also a radio person, like me?
[*] I know, I know. I actually LIKE ads. Within reason, of course, but it's good to know what services and products people are offering, and sometimes the special offers are useful. I've had conversations about that on here before; I really can't understand why some people hate them so much.
A brief reminder, prompted by an email and an Instagram DM I received over the weekend - if you're more of an audiophile than a book-reader, are keen to explore a lot of fascinating science, and are a fan of an Irish accent, my book Sticky is available in audiobook format (with me narrating it) 🦎https://www.audible.com/pd/Sticky-Audiobook/B09KNSTZKR?action_code=ASSGB149080119000H&share_location=pdp #science #books #audiobooks
Finished all 5 books in the Credence Horse Rescue series by #JennieMarts. It made me want to hang out with farm animals.
First time listening to Jennie's books. Good flirty banter, which I appreciate.
Tbh, they're basically the same with slightly different characters/plots but they're super sweet. 🤣 If I had one complaint it would be that they could have been steamier for my taste. #audiobooks #romance #OnToTheNextOne
Finished listening to Barbarian Days by William Finnegan. I savored it over my evening meals so I didn't have to focus on eating every meal alone.
I thought it was wonderful, as good an audiobook as I've listened to. In part that's because it was read by the author. In part because it describes the surfing life from inside it in such a way non-surfers and surfers both hang on every word.

#Canada: National Network for Equitable Library Service (#NNELS) Launches Its First-Ever Artificial Intelligence Narrated Audiobook https://www.infodocket.com/2023/06/05/canada-national-network-for-equitable-library-service-nnels-launches-its-first-ever-artificial-intelligence-narrated-audiobook%EF%BF%BC/ #audiobooks #AI #libraries
The biggest fear I have around #ai and #voiceover is that I already get less work than the average bear because most brands are reluctant to hire trans talent (see #Budweiser and the current backlash against #Target over #Pride) when they can just hire The Usual Suspects & nobody's unhappy.
I'm only going to get even less work if I'm competing for #audiobooks against Stephen Fry's licensed voice. Or Claire Danes. Or Reese Witherspoon. They get a cut, the author gets a celeb, I get nothing. 1/2
"Black Buck" by Mateo Askaripour is a sly, funny satire about being a non-white in the high pressure world of sales.
Darren was the valedictorian of the prestigious NYC high school, but was only a shift manager at Starbucks until he impressed the CEO of a sales company. Offered a job, he initially thrives, but ultimately realizes he is losing what was dear to him. Can he get it back or will jealous competitors derail him? 👍

I need to make audio books of my stories.
I used to do radio and stage, I still do public speaking regularly I have a very strong voice, but it is also a very deep, and manly voice with (according to my wife) "Dom" energy.
But I am also just beginning work on vocal feminization cause I'll be joining a podcast as Katie in July.
Do listeners want to hear erotic stories of magical male to female gender transformation in a deep Dom voice?
Should I wait to get this voice training done and Fem-voice my own books?
Finished Sharpe's Enemy: The Defence of Portugal, Christmas 1812 by Bernard Cornwell on #Audible while working another Sunday, was really hoping I would have been done with the Sundays by now but at least I had one of the best Sharpe novels to listen to this morning.
15th book in the series but still going strong. Brilliant characters, battle scenes second to none and a very emotional ending.

Oof, it's been a while. Not doing great lately. But I'm gonna update on my #history #audiobooks.
Most recently finished: The Pope Who Would Be King: The Exile of Pius IX and the Emergence of Modern Europe, by David Kertzer, borrowed through #Libby
Also borrowed, but not yet started: The American Plague, by Molly Caldwell Crosby
And an #Audible credit partly went toward Wilmington's Lie, by David Zucchino
About a decade ago, I had a long commute to work, and I fiercely enjoyed listening to #audiobooks on my way to work. This was way before I even knew about service like Audible, and so author podcasts were they way to go. After all, what's more delicious that having a story read to you by the author? Back then, I was listening to the likes of @ScottSigler, @email@example.com and @darusha and thoroughly enjoying it. Since then, I've signed up for services like Audible but from time to time I love revisiting the old podcasts. I've gone through @nlowell 's epic space/coffee saga, The Golden Age of the Solar Clipper numerous times and have just started on @darusha 's "Self Made". My deepest thanks to all of you, who shared your work back in those days! ♥️🙂

We received eight auditions from producers interested in narrating the audiobook version of Tula, my novel set in the Golden Age of Hollywood, specifically in the 1920s. All the auditions were of excellent quality, but we think we’ve identified the voice of Tula. Time difference between Britain and America is a factor, but I hope we’ll be in a position to confirm our narrator tomorrow.
Flying Lessons – Part Three
This week's reading is part three of Flying Lessons by Kelly Link. It is part of a short story collection called Stranger Things Happen. It's about eighteen minutes long. Like other Okanagan Reader stories it is licensed Creative

In the posthumously-published 1657CE sci-fi book 'The Other World: The Comical History of the States and Empires of the World of the Moon', French author Cyrano de Bergerac seemingly predicted the #phonograph (& #audiobooks) with a description of a sounding book used by inhabitants of the Moon.
We started the day with four potential audiobook narrators for Tula, my novel set in the Golden Age of Hollywood, with the idea of selecting one but, somehow, we’ve ended the day with seven 🤷♀️ Will try again tomorrow. The ‘problem’ is they are all so good.
"The Cauldron" is a campy high-heat audiobook about a sexy witch who stays forever young by seducing men, shrinking them, & swallowing them whole. If you like a story about mind control, magic, soft vore and group activities, you should love it. Plus the witch has one of my favorite voices! 💋

Today, we begin the process of selecting a narrator for the audiobook version of Tula, my novel set in the Golden Age of Hollywood. It’s exciting to hear your words spoken by a quality narrator, but also daunting to chose one over another. Thankfully, other people are involved in the selection process because I’m tempted to say “yes” to all the voice actors who’ve auditioned 🙂

Another entry in my intermittent Audiobooks and Embroidery series....
Currently listening to The Harp of Kings: a fun, if predictable, historical fantasy. Seriously, I had the whole plot sussed out by about 20% into the book. But I liked the writing and the characters and I'm sticking with it, if nothing else to see how one odious fellow gets his comeuppance. Journey before Destination, as they say.
Just finished this kit from Jessica Long Embroidery on Etsy. Learned some new stitches here, including split stitch, fern stitch, and whipped back stitch on the text. Not ENTIRELY happy with how the text came out, but it's good learning.
If you like abuse of authority in your steamy stories, check out "Dirty Cop" from the Hedon Press Dubious Consent series.
It's the classic premise: a driver willing to do anything to avoid a ticket + a cop prepared to test the limits of "anything." It goes some unexpected places & it's super spicy.''

Gotta say, Agatha Christie's later writing gets a bit strange – especially when she tries writing spy stuff (some friend should've tried to stop her doing that, it's usually dreadful).
I'm listening to the audiobook of Postern of Fate, and we're something like two hours in and hardly anything has happened.
Luckily Hugh Fraser is the reader, and I'll listen to anything he has to read to me, but I hope it gets more interesting soon.

I wish my brain could properly process audio. Unfortunately, I need text. My ears turn audiobooks into garbled bla bla noise, unless I see the text.
I need subtitles. I can cope in cinemas as my over-active brain is grounded by being immersed in sound and visuals, but I have to focus and it’s tiring. In Switzerland most films are shown with subtitles so it was an adjustment after my move to England.
I’d have so much time for #audiobooks and I keep trying in the hopes it would improve. Alas…
Backstage is my longest & largest cast audiobook at 6+ hours with 20+ distinct character voices.

Finished: "Goddess of Anarchy: The Life and Time of Lucy Parsons" by Jacqueline Jones
4/5: Fascinating portrait of Chicago's radical labor politics circa 1880 - 1930. A bit judgmental towards Lucy herself and a bit hostile towards anarchism. For the audiobook: the narration was lackluster and suffered from odd emphases and mispronunciations. Still: definitely worth the read, no question.
Now started: "The History of White People" by Nell Irvin Painter. Been meaning to read this for years, I'm very excited. More updates to follow.

Since January, I've really been enjoying the new audio versions of the #DeathGateCycle by Margaret Wies and Tracy Hickman.
I've been a big fan of their work since Dragonlance, but this series really hit the sweet spot for me back in the early 90s.
The narrator, Fajer Al-Kaisi has done a great job and has created the perfect Alfred voice.
I'm eagerly awaiting for the last book in the series to come out next week.
I can no longer comfortably read dead tree books. I do listen to #audiobooks. I use Libro.fm to support my local bookstore, Katy Budget Books (https://www.katybooks.com/).
My most recent purchase, was actually a #KickStarter for Cory Doctorow. #RedTeamBlues is narrated by @wilw
The good news is, I basically finished it in a day. The bad news, #same
Martin Hench is a #DigitalNomad and #Accountant with a background in #tech (his RV is named Unsalted Hash). If you think accountancy is boring, your search term is Enron (which has zero to do with the plot but does demonstrate that #accounting can be as exciting as one chooses to make it).
As there are already two #sequels in the works, it's not a #spoiler to tell you he doesn't die, though other people do, sometimes in unpretty ways. Marty is a good guy, and so are some of the other people you meet. There are some really bad guys, but we don't more than glimpse some of them through Marty's eyes.
Highly recommend, and I generally don't review books.
One good book leads to another. When I praised Sarah Vaughan's Reputation in here, @Camlarsch recommended (tak) Anatomy of a Scandal. Gripping. Absorbing. The storyline is making me mutter crossly about the patriarchy as I walk down the street. But I do that most days anyway.

Hey just a little reminder for audiobook fans - you can change the speed. I know this and yet I often forget and find myself listening to a non-fiction book and wishing this person lecturing would just, you know, speed it up a bit. Today I turned this author up to 1.45 and it was wonderful. My brain grabbed right back on to the topic once we got motoring.
(Fiction I almost always listen to at normal speed. I like soaking it up.)
I am a broken record on this but abridged audiobooks are terrible. #overdrive #audiobooks
This is an #introduction for the new @AudioFiction #group
Hi! 👋 I'm Evo, and I cut my teeth on #podcasting about #fiction way back in 2004.
I ran a website called Podiobooks•com from 2005–2015 that provided mostly author-narrated #Audiobooks delivered as #podcast feeds.
Today I curate @theendupdates, the weekly newsletter that shines a light back on #AudioFiction shows when they've reached the finale of a season or the conclusion of the series.
How I select #audiobooks to listen to:
1. Discover that Audible has some kind of sale on their subscription and sign up.
2. Grab a couple titles I'm interested in and listen to the first three chapters of one of them.
3. Immediately fall behind and start stacking up credits.
4. Realize my credits are about to start expiring and I need to cancel the subscription.
5. Scramble to find something, anything to spend credits on so I can cancel the subscription without losing credits.
Okay. It’s been too long.
What are y’all reading? My reading slump is TERRIBLE.
I am however listening to this book, which is Living Resistance by Kaitlin B. Curtice.

You can find links to all my books, as well as to my newsletter, tip jar, and wish list, on this links page, which is also always listed in my bio. 🙏 ❤️

I'm listening to the #audiobooks of the #Spellslinger series by #SebastienDeCastell and I'm really liking it so far. Currently on #Charmcaster. Is there a #fandom for this?
I'm also now a Joe Jameson fan. That guy can really read a book!
