Need A Little Audio In Your Life?

the orchard experience

Hello, there! Happy almost-summer to you.
I'm officially out of school, and the living is easy. Except for all the writing. And the new home buying. And the packing. And the moving. And the writing. And the House 1 Fixing Up. And the House 2 Fixing Up. And the old house selling. ASIDE FROM THAT, the living is EASY!

We are working furiously on getting all of the Katie Parker series in audio by late fall. I'm so excited for this project because I think it turned out really well. (I can say that, as I had nothing to do with it.) I'm an audio snob, and so I was super picky about the narrator I chose. Not anyone can give voice to my Katie Parker or (and especially) Mad Maxine. But I think you're going to love the final result. Because I did find a gal who could pull it off, and she did a FABULOUS job. There's so much more to this audio stuff than I ever knew. It takes a lot of time and patience, and those are two things I really don't have. But I do have an old drama teacher's eye for talent, and I'm thrilled with the narrators I'm working with this year.

Did you know your first book on Audible is free? You can totally try them out for free at Audible.com and not have to return that first book ever. If you don't like Audible, you just cancel! Not  anything like those cassette buying clubs some of us got into in the 80s. Not that I would ever be dumb enough to fall for one of those. But I was dumb enough to fall for one of those. But I was 13. And I needed some Richard Marx. (I regret everything about that transaction.) ALSO this audio is all WhisperSync ready, so it totally syncs with your Kindle.

How about we give away an audible copy of IN BETWEEN? Or how about we give away FIVE copies?
To get in the running for the drawing, you can: comment on this blog post and/or tell folks about In Between audio on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
a Rafflecopter giveaway

I hope you have a great summer. Stay tuned for a new book cover share. (Headed to newsletter folks first! Are you subscribed?) And… news about a brand new series coming soonish.
Stay cool, friends!

In Between Audio on Audible.

I’m going camping this summer and having an audio book for the drive and for when I go out on the lake would be a perfect way to relax.

I really don’t have big summer plans. My big summer plans are to figure out my future with God’s help!!! Why I would like the audio book was because if I won it I would like to send it to a friend of mine who has never read this series. I own the Katie Parker series and love them. You are one of my favorite authors and I would just like her to try out your books.

Well, we hope to make it out to the lake for swimming and bbq’ing, a little camping as a family. I intend to read some good books and crochet a lot. I love to listen to audio books while I crochet or relax. 😀

Ahhh! I love your work and have never seen this series in stores, so getting the audio version of this would be so lovely! Now that I have summer school reading for English, some un-graded free reading… er, listening, would really be a nice change of speed! 🙂

Love the Katie Parker series! While I’m hoping to see it as a television show/movie one day, the audio version is a step in the right direction! ????

I love the Katie Parker series, along with all your other works – never have I laughed out loud more while reading (earning me sidelong glances from those across the room). I’m going to be working at a theatre this summer, and the audiobook would provide a welcome reprieve from the craziness. Laughter is the best medicine, they say!

I loved your Charmed Life series! Laugh out loud, would read again, and loving your style of writing! I love audio books and I can’t wait to listen/read In Between as well as your other works!

Carolyn - June 7, 2016

I’ve never read this series, but if it’s got the same witty writing as the other books then I’m looking forward to it. Since I literally have no life ( other then being a doggie mama) then I plan on taking my pasty self to the pool with the Charmed Life book and SPF 75 to get me so good reading time in.

Audiobooks are great to fall asleep to during long summer nights and I would absolutely love to experience Katie Parker in a new way!

Oh wow, I remember those Columbia music clubs. That is too funny. My use for audio books is in sync with whistling while I work (I wear headphones when I’m proofing). Thanks for the opportunity.

Thanks so much!! I’m taking summer classes so this audio book would be a welcome relief from all the stress of school. =)

I LOVE the Katie Parker series and being able to listen and garden would be AWESOME!

Lori - June 8, 2016

Love your writing! This is an excellent series. Would be fun to listen to while driving or while doing chores around the house (trying to turn pages on iPad while working not exactly efficient- and no, putting away books until work is done not always an option #toogoodtoputdown)
And….it IS my birthday on June 12. So what a great present! ????

I LOVE audio books! I listen to them all the time, especially during car trips or working on office work. No fun plans this summer 🙁 but it’s the busy season at work, so there will be lots of audio book listening time while putting together mailings and info packets.

I’m excited that this series will be available in audio! Looking forward to listening to them!

I absolutely adore the character of Katie. I read the series a while back and really enjoyed it! The first one and the novella are my favorites of the series! I’ve never really done the whole audio book thing before, but I’m always looking for something other than Netflix to distract me from my summer classes. Haha.

With three girls and lots of summer road trips audiobooks are a must! I have been looking forward to introducing them to the characters in these books!

We currently serve in China and will be moving to a new city this summer before heading back to America for 5 months! An audible book would definitely be a welcome addition to the crazy that is about to ensue. 🙂

Yay! I love audiobooks, especially now that I have a baby and don’t have too much time to sit and read.

I’m taking my 14 year old daughter and her friend to Ohio to go to church camp with some friends. It’s a 12 hour drive . The three of us would love to listen to this story.

I have read and re-read the Katie Parker series a few times and it’s definitely a favorite! I’m just starting to try out audiobooks because they are great for those days when the eyes are on the fritz! Haha. I would love to have a copy of In Between on audiobook so I can hear Mad Maxine! 🙂

I really liked reading the Katie Parker series! I’m from Germany and I practically “discovered” you through that book a year ago. Now I’m a huge fan and I hope I’m still on time to win the audiobook!

I just discovered your books a short while ago, and since then have bought and listened to every audiobook. I have also read two that aren’t in audio yet (and it won’t hurt my feeling if you decide to make those audiobooks as well:). I have bought a few books for friends and my mom, and I constantly look to see if somehow one was published while I was reading one. I just want you to know, you have quickly become a favorite! I LOVE your humor and your spunk! I love that they have good messages; and I don’t have to stop reading or listening half way through because of inappropriate material. I enjoy getting to know the characters so well and fall in love right along with them! Thank you for putting out books that make me laugh and leave me better for having read them.
