June is Audio Book month and we’re celebrating. Just back from APAC (Audiobook Publisher’s Association Conference) in New York and definitely feeling the love for our tight knit and talented community! Audiobook peeps are some of the nicest and most interesting people in the world. I sat down last night with my good friend and awesome narrator Gary Dikeos for a short chat about audiobooks.
Gary and I are part of a project going all month long entitled “Going Public…In Shorts“. In honor of #JIAM2013, one or two stories every day of the month are being released. The selections are all short stories in the public domain and they’re being read by an impressive list of today’s top audiobook narrators. The stories will be available for streaming, but better yet, if you purchase the story, it is a donation benefitting Reach Out and Read, so please do consider making the purchase. At $1.95, it’s a steal and it’s benefitting a great cause!
This project was conceived and produced by the one and only Xe Sands. If you haven’t checked out Xe, you must. She is quite amazing. A lover of all things audiobooks and an absolute maverick at social media, she is an innovator and a doer – and that just feels inspiring to be around. Check out her sweet project for The Velveteen Rabbit here.
