I have to confess, I was unaware of the Armchair Audies until Khristine Hvam Kies,
the narrator for The Graveyard Queen series, posted on my Faceback wall
that we had been nominated. Now that I've done a little research, I
realize what a very cool thing this is! And I also recognize that much
of the credit belongs to Khristine for her amazing interpretation of
my story. Yay, us!
You can see a complete list of the nominations at AudioFile Magazine.
Another confession, the first time I listened to one of my books on audio--hearing my words spoken by someone besides the voices in my head--kind of freaked me out and made me super critical of what I'd written. It was also strange to hear the differences in cadence, pauses, emphasis and so forth from what I had originally intended. Not better or worse, just different.
Anyone else listen to their own audiobooks? I can't do it. Like reviews and mirrors, I tend to shy away from them.
