What’s the Benefit to Readers?
Here’s the deal … You’ll Get:
· A short, vetted list of indie audiobooks I recommend every week. I’ll try to give you a clear rating system in terms of curses, adult content, and the like. (I’m thinking Sundays.)
· Free audiobooks. (The author emails of those willing to share audible gift codes or directly gift you the book you’ve select.)
· News of any audiobook price drops, giveaways, and cool contests put on by the lovely authors on the list.
(You’ll also get the ebook links if you want to look at the full descriptions before committing to anything.)
What’s the “catch”?
Nothing really, but I run by the principle: “If you like it, then you shoulda put a review on it.” (And if you don’t like it, let the author know privately.) As such, I will be asking that if you enjoy a particular audiobook you let the world know it by posting reviews to Audible and Amazon.
Think of it this way, these authors and their narrators have poured hours upon hours into creating an entertaining or informative show for you. Listening and enjoying their hard work is one step, but it costs you about five minutes of your time to thank them with a review. It also helps other readers find and enjoy things you love.
Nitty Gritty Details:
By “vetted” I mean I’ve either read the book or know the author and the quality of their work personally. (I will be gathering a small team of audiobook readers I trust to make such decisions, but right now, it’s just me.) My reading tastes tend very strongly toward mystery, thriller, and science fiction with a smidgen of fantasy and a few other genres. Therefore, you can expect the list to lean heavily toward these genres. Also, I write (and therefore tend to read) squeaky clean stuff. I’m not saying there won’t be curse words here and there as it fits the story, but these will be the works you wouldn’t mind if your grandmother caught you reading it.
I’m just the middleman here as it were. I’ll show you thing I’ve enjoyed or am excited to try out. It’s up to you to contact the authors who are kind enough to offer some free codes.
Eventually, I’ll be posting the lists to my wordpress blog. After they’re up and running, I’ll send you a link to the recent post(s) at the bottom of the weekly newsletter.
If that sounds like a good deal to you, please sign up below. As a bonus, I’ll enter you into a drawing to win one of 5 ebook, audiobook, and paperback bundles of any of my applicable works. (Clarification: It has to be a title that has an audiobook, ebook, and paperback version.)
