Audio and e-books

My interview with In the Know magazine went really well. It turned out the interviewer and I went to the same University, so we had quite a bit in common! The feature won’t be out until January, but I’m really looking forward to seeing it.

In other news, I've now had a couple of queries about getting books on CD, so following the latest message on my guest book I thought I'd post here on the subject as well as responding individually. So far I don't have anything on CD, but my fantasy publisher, Juno Books, is putting some (if not all) of the line out as audio books. The first book, Jenn Reese's Jade Tiger, is already in that format. It may happen with a couple of my books next year and, if so, I'll include that information on my newsletter and website. Fingers crossed! I have a couple of partially sighted readers who enjoyed my ebooks, which are easier for them, and one of my closest friends is hoping for audio format for the same reason too.

I must admit I’m getting into audio books myself. Partly because of vision problems, partly because I can do other stuff while I listen. :) I've been listening to some of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series this way, catching up on the ones I've missed. And speaking of ebooks, I should probably mention my ebook, ALONG FOR THE RIDE will still be available for the next few months. Click here for an excerpt and to find out more.

I have an auditory problem, so can't get into the audio books, but they're pretty popular.
