My audiobook work has continued steadily all year, and I’m blessed and grateful to report that more are coming!
In addition to the narration, I did the complete production of each of these books in my stunning soundproof studio. I am so fortunate that Drew directs me on my audiobooks. He is exceedingly good at catching mis-reads, and he also offers guidance about saying lines with different emotion or inflection.
Drop Dead Divas by Virginia Brown (Book 2 in the Dixie Divas mystery series)
No sooner has Bitty Hollandale been cleared of the murder of her ex-husband than townspeople suspect she may have killed his lover, town bad girl Naomi Spencer. In addition, Naomi’s fiancÃ© Race Champion is also found dead. Talk about a fly in the martini!
Dixie Diva Blues by Virginia Brown (Book 3 in the Dixie Divas mystery series)
Trinket Truevine and her cousin Bitty Hollandale are once again up to their eyebrows in murder and mayhem. This time, the husband of one of the Divas has been arrested for murder. The Divas will stop at nothing to clear him…but what happens at a Divas meeting stays at a Divas meeting!
Irreparable Harm by Melissa F. Miller (Book 1 in the Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller series)
A smartphone app is capable of crashing a commercial jet. And it’s for sale to the highest bidder. A plane slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard. But, as attorney Sasha McCandless digs into the case, she learns the crash was no accident. She joins forces with federal air marshal Leo Connelly, and they race to prevent another crash.
Hound Dog Blues by Virginia Brown (Book 1 in the Blue Suede Memphis series)
With a heroine named Harley Davidson, you know this cozy mystery will be fun! Harley sets out to find out who dognapped family dog King (named after Elvis, of course) and quickly finds herself in the midst of a band of jewel thieves!
I’m also excited about it because my co-narrator who did all of the male parts is also the hero of my life story — Drew Commins! It was quite a challenge to record both of our parts and then edit it to make it sound seamless. We also gained greater appreciation for each others’ usual roles.
Inadvertent Disclosure by Melissa F. Miller (Book 2 in the Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller series)
In this book, tiny but fierce lawyer Sasha McCandless finds a town divided by the practice of hydrofracking. The town’s only judge is killed just as he is about to decide a major issue about the mineral leases. Sasha races to find the murderer and save the town before it’s too late.
Subsequent books in each of these 3 series are on tap for the coming months. I’m currently finishing Lowcountry Bribe by C. Hope Clark. This mystery thriller is set in South Carolina, and the protagonist works for the US Department of Agriculture. It should be released in early November.
