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

They passed a cemetery on the left, and she was struck with the sheer amount of visitors she saw. She squinted against the lights of oncoming traffic and realized that they weren’t visiting graves after all; they were just milling about, walking this way and that, some staring over the fence toward the road, the others seemingly oblivious to the world around them.
