A few weeks ago, Patrick Stemp, co-host of the TBR Podcast, invited me to participate in an interview on his blog called “Reading with Writers” — a different sort of interview format focused primarily on other people’s books, and not my own.
I was more than happy to participate.

Welcome to the Mountain Women Series
I’ve just pushed the “Approve” button, completing my part of The Girl on theMountain audiobook! This project was made possible by ACX, the Audiobook Creation Exchange. On the ACX website, authors and publishers can audition prospective narrator/producers for their books. I listened to a lot of great voices and was able to have those who auditioned read different passages.
The narrator I chose made the story come alive for me again, and she was a pleasure to work with. After we agreed on a deadline, she posted several recorded chapters nearly every day. I chose to download and listen to the chapters using iTunes, then I emailed notes and corrections, if any, and she resubmitted the chapters.
In a week or two, the audiobook version of The Girl on the Mountain will be available for purchase through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. It will not be available on compact disk–I’m told those are less used these days. Listeners download…

An interview with one of the inspirations for a book I wrote (still unpublished). Highly recommended.

I’ve read it, it’s got the John L. Monk squeal of approval 🙂
I was on another trip down memory lane today when I came across a delight from my childhood: The Borribles. It’s a great tale about runaway children in England and what happens to them: they turn into “Borribles,” a quasi-magical child with pointy ears. A recommended read for children, and queued for a re-read on my Kindle.
If you haven’t read “Girl on the Mountain”, you’re missing out. I totally just got the follow-up (which stands on its own), and that makes me a little bit happier than most people. This will cause people to like me more when they see me walking down the hall at work, which will lead to favorable attitudes towards me and eventually pay raises, bonuses, comp days and other great things.
