I have a confession to make. Despite having all four of my books on audio, I’d never listened to an entire audio book (other than vetting my own for approval) until last weekend.

Last Thursday, during a 10+ hour drive to Chicago, my  son and I listened to pro-wrestler Daniel Bryan’s autobiography Yes!: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleManiaIt was an amazing story, and made me realize just what I’d been missing by avoiding audio books.

While audio books will never take the place of the written word for me, they are a great alternative—especially when driving, exercising, cleaning, or any other situation where you moag-audiblecan’t sit down and read. An added bonus is that the right narrator can really help bring the book to life!

I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing narrators for my own books. Going on a drive? Make sure to check them out!

From Joe's writing

Katy felt like she was going to cry again. Ben had left to find a first aid kit, and she was terrified to be in the strange hotel room all alone. She carefully washed out her wound with soap and water, but it still looked awful and felt worse. She could barely comprehend the fact that she had almost been killed tonight. She’d always assumed the dreams were a product of some disturbed part of her mind, her imagination running rampant, but all of that had changed. Thank God Ben had been there to wake her.
