In a word – Squeeeeee!
Here it is – finally – the audiobook of Take a Chance on Me! Originally self-published as ‘Hawaiian Affair’ (and followed by Hawaiian Escape and Hawaiian Retreat as they are called at the moment on Amazon) this is my first finished novel, and for three years people have been asking when the Audiobook would be out. Well here it is!
I devour audiobooks, if you didn’t know already. Every week I’m listening to hours and hours of stories and non-fiction in the car, and whilst cooking and gardening and sometimes even whilst walking the dogs. I’ve listened to/read more books in the past three years than I have in the past decade, thanks to multi-tasking. So it is with great pleasure that I announce that TACOM is now on audible.
I was delighted when Lyn my publisher told me that Howes Audio had bought the rights to make the audiobook and even more delighted to chat to talented narrator Antonia Beamish who told me she loved my (ahem) steamy scenes – ‘you’re very good at writing the sex scenes, Miss Flint’ she said. Lol. That’s one of the reasons I was happier for someone else to read my books, I have to say.
This week, a full look at one of my best TiFFT’s ever – my first novel finally out on my first audiobook. If you wondered what the narrators look like, here’s a pic of lovely Antonia Beamish who was chosen to be my narrator, and to get a link to listen to a free sample! Go here.
So do enjoy it and let me know what you think!
Get it here on amazon – with 123 five star reviews. If you read Hawaiian Affair, this version is a little different so you might enjoy this too. Let me know what you think – just email me [email protected]
