Audiobook of Uncommon Stock: Version 1.0 is now available

Audiobooks hold a special place in my heart. Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved listening to stories. My parents entranced me with bedtime tales and one baby sitter read me The Hobbit over the course of a number of extended sessions. As I got older, we started to listen to books-on-tape on family road trips. If I came home from school early, my ritual was to munch on chips and salsa while listening to an audiobook borrowed from the Oakland Public Library.

That’s why I’m so delighted to share that the audiobook of my first novel, Uncommon Stock: Version 1.0, is now available. You can find it right here:

Audio is becoming a richer format than ever before. Podcasts have exploded in popularity, especially since Serial captured the attention of the nation. Audiobooks have been on the rise and are a big growth factor in the book business as more and more people plug in earbuds to explore new worlds during their commute.

But producing an audiobook takes some doing. Drea and I reviewed over forty auditions from different voice actors and production companies before selecting the narrator who we thought best captured Mara and the spirit of The Uncommon Series. Jennifer O’Donnell did a fabulous job and The Brick Shop in Brooklyn was masterful in post production. Fun fact, it’s less entertaining than you might imagine to listen to your own audiobook. I reviewed all the final files myself but I already knew all the spoilers!

Give it a listen and let me know what you think. I’m excited with the results and look forward to reading your reviews. Production on the audiobook for Uncommon Stock: Power Play will start soon…
