What a year 2017 has been!
My stand-alone paranormal shapeshifter romance, Moondance, was released in April, and I was thrilled when the book was awarded the IndieBRAG Medallion in October. Here are some thoughts from the narrator about producing the book:
I loved narrating Moondance for Linda Hopkins! This is such a well-written book, with natural and believable dialogue, that it was easy for me to give voice to Linda’s words.
Narrating a book is just like acting in a play – you have to BE the story and tell it from the heart. My narrating process first involves reading the manuscript and creating all the characters’ voices, so that each character’s voice is distinctive and recognizable when you listen to the audiobook. With Moondance, I had the great pleasure of doing something I don’t usually get to do: speak in my own native Canadian accent! Each character gets his or her own special voice, and I loved talking in Lee’s voice the most, he is such a sexy character with his emotions just under the surface.
It was especially fun to narrate a book where I know the exact locale. In fact, the setting for Moondance is literally right next door to where I live, about an hour west of Calgary, Alberta. Readers, and listeners, will be delighted to know that Linda got every detail about Calgary, the forests and rivers of Kananaskis Country and the Rocky Mountains absolutely spot-on! Even as I recorded in my studio, I could envision the environment and setting with such clarity that it made the story of Moondance completely real for me.
I hope you enjoy listening to Moondance as much as I enjoyed narrating it! – Georgia Bragg
And also in December, the Moondance audiobook was also released. You can find Moondance in audio format on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. (If you are new to Audible, you can open a 30-day trial account and download the book free.) And Loved by a Dragon is scheduled to be released as an audiobook in February.
Work on Book 5 of The Dragon Archives is coming along well – I was very pleased to meet my target of completing the first draft before Christmas! The next step is editing and polishing before sending to my editor. The release for this book, tentatively titled Redeemed, is set for June. I’m looking forward to sharing more about this story with you in the coming months.
