The 2012 Favorite Romance Audiobooks Poll is up and running. It’s your chance to tell the audio industry what you like best about romance audio. It’s a different type of poll this year and you will find few of the same categories as our 2011 Poll. The poll ends Monday, July 2nd at midnight. So go cast your ballot!
We’re continuing to celebrate June Is Audiobook Month with our fourth special event – an interview with Tavia Gilbert. Tavia was a finalist for an Audie Award this year and attended the ceremony earlier this month. She’s giving us an inside look at the Audies and the Audio Publishers Association and sharing a little about her career. There’s another event that has Tavia’s name on it this month and that is the release of Jeaniene Frost’s Once Burned. Tavia is once again in the narrator’s seat with Vlad’s book – something that Night Huntress fans have been waiting for.
We also have our New Releases for July and a number of reviews. Up for review today are Kristan Higgins’ Catch of the Day, J.R. Ward’s The Player, Shiloh Walker’s Ash trilogy, and Nora Roberts’ The Last Boyfriend.
Talking with Tavia Gilbert
Welcome to Speaking of Audiobooks Tavia and thanks for joining us today in this last of our special events celebrating June Is Audiobook Month (JIAM). It’s been exciting to watch all that is going on in the audio industry this month as well as looking from the outside in at the 2012 Audio Publishers Association (APA) Conference and the Audie Awards. I see that you have been an Audie finalist three times including the 2012 Audies for your narration of The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball. Can you tell us about the Audie Awards and what being a finalist means to a narrator?
