Hi Dana. Congratulations to you all on the audio release. How fun. :)

Meg Gardiner's vocal performer for China Lake was awesome. Khaled Hosseini also read his own novel, The Kite Runner, which was superb. And I like to hear Jaquelyn Mitchard read her own books, too. Such a friendly voice.

Other times, a narrator can taint a story for me if I don't feel like we "hit it off." Weird.

Glad you got a good one!

Oh, it would be such fun to hear those stories on audio! perfect. I'm running right out to get it...What wonderful collections those are. Treasures.

And I remember saying to you--Dana, your hair looks--purple! And like, yeah. It WAS purple. And quite attractive.

ANd yes, Charlaine. She was--stellar. Spectacular. Everyone was buzzing!


Thanks, Rachel! Lovely to see you at CB! Yes, a good narrator makes or breaks it.

It was a fun weekend, Hank! And my hair was purple. Once, I wore a red wig, bobbed, and no one noticed. So I go big or stay home, these days!


Some of my books have been put out in audio editions, and I love the reader they chose. I think I read my own work well, but she's better than I am. While I'm thrilled to have these editions available to readers, it's not a form I've ever taken to. I tried it again the last time I drove to CA for signings -- I played a Daniel Silva thriller, thinking that would keep me engaged. But my mind wanders too much when I drive, especially on road trips, and I lose track of the story. It's great that we're all able to find the format that best serves us, though.

Love the purple hair, Dana! Quite a look. ;)


Kris, I'm with you; I like radio-dramas and audio books, but find them too engaging when I'm driving. Definitely a treat for a quiet night in, with a suitable beverage!
