Listening to your favorite book

If you are like me, then you never have enough time to sit and read all the books that you want to read. Or, it’s hard to read because you are getting older and your eyes are not what they once were. I fall into both those categories.

That’s why I started working on publishing all of my books into audio. It’s a long process since I have over sixty books published, but I am slowly getting more and more on audio. I have about half of them in audio now, and I love it. One of my favorite things is listening to my narrator after they are done to make sure there are no major mistakes. I find myself sucked back into my book, and sometimes even forget that I’m the one that wrote it as I laugh and cry with my characters. I did that recently as I listened to the final audio of Second Shield II: The Return which will be available for sale soon.

I can’t remember the last time that I physically read a book that wasn’t mine, but I have a nice collection of audiobooks that I can listen to while I’m cleaning or cooking. Sometimes I even listen in my car. It’s a great way to be entertained, without the wear and tear to my eyes, and while I get other things done.

  1. I LOVE audiobooks! I gobble up at least one a week. My favorite place to listen…while shopping at Walmart. I know what I’m buying; I’ve been buying the same things for my husband for 31 years. So instead of listening to all the screaming people and PA announcements, I get to listen to a wonderful narrator sweep me away into another world.

    And I absolutely agree about the editing. I follow along with the narrator while reading the final copy. I consider it my final proofread.

    • I never thought of wearing mine while shopping. I think my cop instincts would take over on that now and not allow me to do that – I wish I could!!! I can’t even walk outside with earbuds in because then I’m not aware of my surroundings. lol… But I sure love audiobooks!

      • I TOTALLY get that. I know I mentioned it years ago…way back when I was in another group with you, but I doubt you remember… My husband is a retired police detective, so he’s the same way. He’s been in the thick of things in South Florida and then Charlotte, so he sees and hears threats long before they happen.

        And yep, he hated wearing earphone even to the gym until we found AfterShoks Bone Conduction headphones. I sound like a commercial. LOL!

        But really, now we both love them. The don’t stick in your ears; they rest on the outside, so while you hear everything with amazing sound, you can still hear everything around you.

        We bought ours at Brookstone while we were in an airport, but I looked them up for you and, yep, they are available on Amazon. They are 100% worth it!!! Here’s the short link: https://amzn.to/3eNdDQR

        You will be able to listen to books and music outside again. <3
