I started the process of putting my books on audio back in May. I've received a lot more auditions than I really ever expected to get for both series. It's a huge honor to have someone want to read for me. I would really like to have all six books available on audio by the end of this year or early in 2022. I've been able to narrow down the auditions received and am really close to making a final selection so that production can begin. It's a bit surreal for me to even think of my books on audio, but also really cool at the same time. Stay tuned for more updates on this front as I'll be dropping information as I receive it.
Following up from my post last week, I have done more research on how much it would cost me to publish my books in hardback. I've found that my partnership with Barnes and Noble allows me to do it through them and that it isn't as expensive as I originally thought it would be. Right now, I'm working through the particulars of resizing the cover for a hardback edition, but once I get that, I intend to post a sign up form for interested readers on all my social media platforms. I intend on only doing them once a year and by sign up only, but I could change my mind as well. This is another topic to stay tuned on as more updates will be coming down the pipeline soon.
As stated in previous blog posts, for the month of June, Fighting for Someday and Conflicted are FREE! Waiting for Someday, Complicated, and Concealed are on sale for $0.99. Finding Our Someday has been reduced to $2.99. After this month, all six books will go back to their original prices for the foreseeable future, so I encourage everyone to take advantage of this major sale, especially the free books. I'm always playing with the prices, but I can promise you I don't foresee putting any of them back out there for free for the reminder of this year.
It was quite the week with baseball for my godson. His team won their first game of state in a thrilling 10 inning victory. Unfortunately, they lost the game to advance them to the championship, but they did end up taking home third, which is an amazing accomplishment. I can't wait to see what this group of kids does next year as they played so incredibly well this year!
That's it for this week! I'm off to price out those kiddie pools for the dogs and hopefully enjoy some R&R this weekend after a very hectic week.
