Morning Everyone, Toni Griffin here with another episode of Stuff We Like. This week I'm here to talk about Audio Books.
Personally, I love them. I listen to them in the car, whenever my child isn't present, at my EDJ, they allow me to still have my book fix while I'm doing my work. At home while I'm cleaning or playing games, even in the kitchen while I'm cooking.
I can read all the latest releases while still catching up with all my favourite couples.
These are just a couple of my favourite authors & series. I can't tell you the number of times I've listened to these.
Some people have problems with the narrators and the accents they use, the way they talk or the way they pronounce words. Honestly, for me, there's only ever been one audio book that I started and haven't finished. I couldn't tell you if that was because of the narrator or the actual story as it was a new one that I hadn't read previously.
Some narrators go above and beyond, while others stick strictly to the story. Either way, my hat goes off to each and every one of them. I couldn't read my stories aloud, and the amount of effort and work that goes into one of these productions is incredible.
Mischief Corner Books is looking at expanding to Audio and I wanted to put the question to my readers:
Would you like to see some of my books published in Audio?
If so which ones?

We can only pick one series or book?!? Are you trying to test your readers and their loyalties? LOL! As authors are able to control who reads their books, I think they have gotten better, I don't know if as much care went into it in "the early years"! Besides which, TV has not caught up with the times - I still laugh over TV shows that apparently at any time in history, everyone spoke with a British accent, no matter what time period or part of the world they are in!!! So, imagine, almost any of your books that are set in Australia, where one might expect to have someone from Australia reading the books to get pronunciations and slang just right, only to have someone from a southern US or, even better, Newfoundland, reading it - it kind of takes away from the story!!!
