I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Andrea Emmes. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

RATING: 3.5/5 stars

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy and young adult! It has your classic tropes: the love triangle, the dark and handsome love interest, the conflicted girl, etc. It is a feel-good, kind of book that I’m sure many people would enjoy.

I liked listening to this book rather than reading it ( and not just because the narrator, Andrea Emmes, did a terrific job) because it was a lot easier to imagine the details of setting while listening to the book.

The book did a great job in sticking to the historical accuracies of the other time era it was describing other than present day, though I was left wishing that more of the book was spent in the “past” because that era is truly one of my favorites to study and know more about.

Lizzie, the protagonist, navigates through the classic high school issues: whether she really likes her current boyfriend (he’s a class-A jerk, which was nicely done), whether she should be taking AP classes when she is struggling in the subject, and whether she should be loyal to her best friend or loyal to her love interest. These struggles took up most of the book and that is why I would recommend this book to readers who like young adult. Many of Lizzie’s issues are valid ones that many a teenager deals with, and her immaturity in dealing with some of these issues only goes to show that she is the age she is supposed to be in this book. I believe anyone who remembers being a confused teenager will have no issue in relating to the protagonist.

There are also many, many references to Pride and Prejudice, which I enjoyed because it is truly one of my favorite books. If these elements sound appealing to you, then I would definitely recommend this series to you!

Q&A with Narrator Andrea Emmes
  • When did you know you wanted to be an audiobook narrator?
    • Well, I kind of fell into audiobooks in 2014 and haven’t looked back since. I’ve been a professional performer (actor/singer/dancer/VO) for over 20 years but in 2006 I got hurt in a stunt show and had to retire due to a disabling pain disorder called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy aka CRPS. I’ve always been an avid reader and during my recovery I read about 8-12 books a week. I went back to college and got a degree in Game Art and Design and was a game designer for Disney Interactive for a couple of years After the layoffs, I had to figure out what I should do next as I can no longer dance, etc. anymore and my husband suggested I look into audiobooks. He’s brilliant and I researched it, set up my equipment, studied with coaches and have enjoyed every minute of it!!
  • Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?
    • That’s a great question. Yes and No. When looking into how to get into audiobooks, I found ACX. Audiobook Exchange which is owned by Amazon/Audible. It’s a really great marketplace for self-published indie authors/small publishers to put their books up for auditions and for narrators to find work. This is where I got my start. It was great cutting my teeth on the amazing books that were listed but since this is a full time thing for me, I’m always looking how to grow my business and extend my reach as a narrator. So, I started looking into how I could work with the big publishers. This takes some time as there are a ton of amazing talent out there that are vying to be noticed and cast. So, I immediately starting coaching with Sean Allen Pratt, who is an incredible coach and began learning techniques for Non Fiction and narration in general which really gave me a solid foundation moving forward. I still hear Sean’s advice in my head while in the booth 3 years later!! I’ve also studied with Paul Alan Ruben, Patrick Fraley, PJ Ochlan, Joel Froomkin, Andi Arndt. Each one offered such nuggets of wisdom that has made me a better narrator and I look forward to learning from other coaches as you should always be honing your craft. Each book I do, I learn so much and finally this year, after networking, working on my technique and studio sound, I’ve started working with some publishers and am so excited to see what lies ahead!
  • A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?
    • I, too, have a background in theatre and though I think that it was 100% helpful for me in bringing those acting techniques to my narration, it’s not a MUST. But it does help. Audiobook Narration is an acting job. You are cast to not only bring the book to life audibly, but you must vocally and emotionally embody each character, the tone of the book and entertain at the same time. It’s no easy feat. So for those who don’t have any acting background and want to be a narrator, it can be learned with really great coaching. I know many successful narrators who didn’t come from the acting world but put in so much work to be the best at what they do.
  • What type of training have you undergone?
    • I’ve been studied the art of acting and performing for more than half my life. I’ve taken singing lessons to not only bring a higher quality to my singing voice, but to help with breath control, mic techinques and vocal upkeep. I’ve studied with the best of the best for voice over work for commercials, animation, video games and of course audiobooks. What’s interesting is that the technique for voice over (commercial/animation/videogames) is different for audiobooks. There is a different approach you need to take with NonFiction (which is still acting) and with Fiction. How you approach different character voices but not be over the top cartoony, keeping the narration genuine and engaging to keep the listener immersed. Sometimes, I enjoy the training just as much as the actual narration.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?
    • That is a great question, but narration can be tedious. Especially because you have to learn a ton of tech and engineering besides just speaking into the mic. It’s important to take lots of small breaks. Especially because it’s not good to be sitting or standing for too long. Because of my disability, I have to narrate sitting down, so it’s important for me to stretch or lay down every once in a while. Also, it can be hard to maintain your enthusiasm because, yes, I have a wicked cool job that I LOVE, but sometimes it’s hard to get into the emotions of the book. But I remind myself that I’m so blessed to do what I do; to have authors and publishers who believe and trust in me to bring their book to life and I don’t take that honor lightly. If I’m struggling or just not feeling it, I’ll step away, play some video games or watch TV or go for a walk and then come back fresh and get back to work!! As long as I hit my deadline, my daily schedule is flexible.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • I AM! I love them. I’ve always loved story time as a child and in a way, it brings me back to when my parents would read to me. Audiobooks allow you to dive into the world of a good book and amazing characters, hear them come to life with the different voices, etc. and just let your imagination soar. When I’m listening, I can see the world that the narrator is describing. Also, it’s great to keep me entertained while I’m driving, cleaning or going for a walk. I’m a book addict and a total audiophile!
  • What are your favorite and least favorite parts of narrating an audiobook?
    • Hmm. I think my favorite parts of narrating is when I first read the book, make all of my notes and really work on the characters. I also really love emotional stories, where the characters are going through a hard time, some kind of trauma, or whatever and I can dive into what they are feeling. It can be hard emotionally on me as sometimes I’ve had to stop recording because I have to ugly cry for a moment, but it’s so fulfilling to actualize these moments in a hopefully genuine manner that will touch the listener. The best feeling is when the book is complete and gets approved ☺. My least favorite part of narration would be if I have to edit/master my own book. That is a very tedious process and whenever I can afford to high a professional engineer I jump at the chance. (plus, they do a way better job than I do so they are worth every penny!)
  • What would you say are your strongest narration abilities?
    • Wow. That’s a hard question. I think for me, really getting into the mindset of a character, especially an angst-y young adult character and bringing them to life in a believable way is something I feel confident with.
  • Is there a particular genre you feel unsuited for? Have you ever declined a project because you didn’t think you were right for it?
    • I honestly am happy to narrate any genre, but because I have a youthful voice, Young Adult and Children’s books are a strength for me and what I do mostly. And I love it. I read young adult books for pleasure so it’s pretty awesome to be able to narrate them! I have declined a few projects because I didn’t feel I was right for it. And often times, I’d submit other narrators that I thought would be better suited for the book.

Book Tour: Air and Ash

 

Author: Alex Lidell

Narrator: Kaitlin Bellamy

Length: 6 hours and 57 minutes

Publisher: Danger Bearing Press

Released: Sep. 8, 2017

Genre: YA Fantasy

Master and Commander meets Sarah J Maas in a seafaring adventure of duty, love, magic, and a princess’s quest to protect her kingdom on her own terms.

After a lifetime of training, 17-year-old Princess Nile Greysik, a lieutenant on the prestigious Ashing navy flagship, sails into battle with one vital mission – and fails.

Barred from the sea and facing a political marriage, Nile masquerades as a common sailor on the first ship she can find. With a cowardly captain, incompetent crew, and a cruel, too-handsome first officer intent on making her life a living hell, Nile must hide her identity while trying to turn the sorry frigate battle worthy. Worse, a terrifying and forbidden magic now tingles in Nile’s blood. If anyone catches wind of who Nile is or what she can do, her life is over.

But when disaster threatens the ship, Nile may have no choice but to unleash the truth that will curse her future.

Air and Ash is the thrilling first installment of the TIDES series. Recommended for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Tamora Pierce, and David Weber.

Q&A with Author Alex Lidell
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • At the time I was writing AIR AND ASH, no. But now that I am on the third book in the series, having heard Kaitlin narrate AIR AND ASH, I do hear the characters speaking in her voice as I write.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • I listed to sample reels of many narrators and then invited Kaitlin to audition. I really like the range of emotions and undertones she has within each character’s voice.
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • Very closely! I was really shy about sending her an audio file of my voice pronouncing some words, but it worked 🙂 We also have a shared google doc with character descriptions and we spent some time on the phone “auditioning” character voices. It was one of my favorite parts of the process and the reason I SO love working with Kaitlin.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • Often by listening to audiobooks or watching some TV shows with the right atmosphere, and then analyzing the story/plot. What did I like about it? Why did I keep watching and listening? How can I apply that fun thing that got me excited to my own writing?
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • I’m a HUGE listener. I fell in love with audiobooks listening to Master and Commander, where the narrator helped me understand some of the technical seamanship. My favorite narrator (aside from Kaitlin of course!) is Jennifer Ikeda
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • I say Safety First! When I get into a book, I can’t pull away from it – so I end up walking down the street, reading my phone (yeah, i’m one of those horrible people). With audiobooks I can walk and listen!
  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?
    • I have a habit of traveling to meet people who I’ve e-met during the writing process. After finishing WAR AND WIND (TIDES book 2), I went to see Rachel E Carter in CA. And in October I’m going to go see Kaitlin to celebrate AIR AND ASH audio.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • I think YA fantasy fans are often comfortable with a series – I know I am – and expect it. Other genres have different fan bases. From an author perspective, a series lets me tell more complex overall stories, but makes logistics difficult. IE in book one, the distance between A and B might not matter so I say “umm, half a day by horse, sure, why not”. And then in book 3 it becomes vitally important that it take a WEEK to get from A to B,… and I have to somehow deal 🙂
  • Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks?
    • Talk to your narrator and make sure you click as professionals. I really lucked out with Kaitlin because of her excitement level and flexibility – but some people prefer to have more “distance”. It was a match with Kaitlin herself, not just her voice, that finally closed the deal for me
  • What’s next for you?
    • WAR AND WIND (Tides 2) comes out in audio in December. SEA AND SAND (Tides 3) comes out in print/ebook in January!

Book Tour: Keys to the Coven

 

Author: Vicky Loebel

Narrators: Nick Podehl & Emily Beresford

Length: 12 hours 49 minutes

Publisher: Pentachronistic Press

Released: Jun. 17, 2013

Genre: Paranormal

The Road to Hell is Paved with Bad Intentions. Get ready for Keys to the Coven, a witty, tightly plotted, (adult) urban-fantasy/romance set in an original universe where karma is power, sex is karma, and it’s not who you know but whose soul you own that matters.*

To become a demon, you must die in complete and utter despair. Three hundred years ago, Max passed that test with flying colors and joined the afterlife resolving never again to have innocent blood on his hands. Now Max has been given the job of breaking a young witch’s family curse. But what she doesn’t know, what Max can’t bring himself to tell her, is that completing his mission almost certainly means her death.

When Felicity Woodsen inherits her mother’s coven, she learns each firstborn Woodsen daughter must become the consort of an evil-arch demon. Felicity’s only hope is to ally with the mysteriously charming Max. But is saving her body from one demon worth risking her soul with another?

Roxashael became a demon when his Roman captors sent his family, one by one to be devoured by lions. The lesson was clear: power is good; lots of power is better. Two-thousand years later, Rocky has power. He’s purchased hundreds of souls, and he’s created the Minsk Homunculus, a magic artifact that, by binding a human witch as his consort, turns him into an arch-demon and places him above the goody-two-shoes laws of karma.

Unfortunately, Rocky made a mistake. He fell in love with Felicity’s mother and in a moment of weakness promised to give up his demon-consort charm. Now Felicity’s mother is dead, the Minsk Homunculus is slated for destruction, and Rocky’s power as an arch-demon is about to end.

No demon can break a promise. If Rocky refuses to give up the Minsk Homunculus, he’ll become the lowest, most abject slave in Hell. But then, why break promises when they’re so easy to corrupt?

**Caution: This book contains violence, strong sexual themes, moderately explicit sex between consenting adults, (unfulfilled) threats against children, and one completely gratuitous reference to unicorns.

 

Vicky Loebel began her professional life as a systems programmer for NASA and moved through successively more challenging careers before settling in as a writer of tightly-plotted, romantic fiction. She lives on the slopes of Mt. Lemmon, AZ with her sister, three dogs, a rotating assortment of children, and a husband who has the patience of a saint.

Q&A with Author Vicky Loebel
  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
    Turning “Keys to the Coven” into an audiobook was a dream come true. As a long-time listener (my Audible library is HUGE), I was already a fan of narrator Nick Podehl, so when I spotted his name on the ACX website, I sprang. Mike Naramore of Terrestrial Media recommended Emily Beresford as the female narrator and handled everything, so I got to walk the red-carpet of audiobook production – all without changing out of my pajamas!
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?
    Humor is a challenge because it’s taste specific – different people are going to see different things as funny, a fact that was brought home to me when I listened to “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” – a book I thought was only so-so when I read it myself – brilliantly narrated by author Douglas Adams. (If you’ve never heard this version, track it down!)
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    Nope. If it were, I’d have taken pity on the narrators and made my sentences a little less convoluted. 🙂
  • How did you select your narrators?
    Comic timing is everything when reading a book that is equal parts serious adventure and humor. Since I was lucky enough to know Nick’s work, I simply found his address and threw myself across his driveway blocking his car…. Just kidding. He turned out to be available. Although I kept the driveway thing in reserve….
  • What influenced your decision to have dual narration?
    “Keys to the Coven” alternates point of view between the male and female leads on a chapter-by-chapter basis, so dual narration was a natural choice, but I was worried about finding two readers who worked well together. Fortunately my production house was able to recommend Emily Beresford.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    My first stories were fanfiction based on an old 1960s television show called “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” about a pair of optimistic spies who save the world and always do the right thing. My demon, Max, is a distillation of the nobility, pragmatism, and dry wit I adore those characters. And sexiness – did I forget to mention sexiness?
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    I love audiobooks! I started checking them out from the library (remember CDs?) years ago to listen to while commuting, and they quickly expanded to brighten chores, exercise, and rocking babies at two in the morning. Along the way, I saw the added dimension a great narrator brings to a story and discovered many new authors while sampling books by beloved narrators. In my opinion, it’s perfect symbiosis!
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    I love to fall in love with characters (especially well-crafted secondary characters), so I really understand the appeal of a series. But I also enjoy all sorts of styles and genres and love to try out different worlds and plots. So both are great! Had I but world enough and time….
  • Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
    Often, particularly toward the end of a project. Those smart-alecs always have something cleverer to say or more inventive to do than whatever I wrote in the first place, so then it’s revisions, revisions, revisions until my dream-masters are satisfied.

Book Tour: The Punch Escrow

Author: Tal M. Klein

Narrator:Matthew Mercer

Length: 8 hours 42 minutes

Publisher: Audible Studios

Released: Jul. 25, 2017

Genre: Tecnothriller

It’s the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We’ve genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport—a secretive firm headquartered in New York City. Their slogan: Departure… Arrival… Delight!

 

Joel Byram, our smartass protagonist, is an everyday twenty-second century guy. He spends his days training artificial intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980’s new wave—an extremely obscure genre, and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems—until he’s accidentally duplicated while teleporting.

 

Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves in a world that now has two of him.

 

 

Tal M. Klein was born in Israel, grew up in New York, and currently lives in Detroit with his wife and two daughters. When she was five years old, his daughter Iris wrote a book called I’m a Bunch of Dinosaurs that went on to become one of the most successful children’s book projects on Kickstarter ―something that Tal explained to Iris by telling her, “your book made lots of kids happy.” Iris then asked Tal, “Daddy, why don’t you write a book that makes lots of grownups happy?” Tal mulled this over for a few years, and eventually wrote his first book, The Punch Escrow. It won the Inkshares Geek & Sundry Hard Science Fiction publishing contest, and is the first book published on the Geek & Sundry imprint.

Q&A with Author Tal M. Klein
  • How did you select your narrator, Matthew Mercer?

I always knew I wanted Matt Mercer to narrate my book, the hard part was getting him to agree to do it. Between Critical Role and his various Nerdist responsibilities, he’s also an incredibly prolific voice actor. Recording an audiobook is a serious time commitment! There was also the challenge of getting Audible to agree to having Matt do the book because he’d never done an audiobook before. Ultimately I got lucky in that Matt read my book, liked it, agreed to do the audiobook, and Audible was easily convinced to sign off once they heard his voice acting reel. The rest is history!

  • How closely did you work with Matthew before and during the recording process? Did you give him any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?

Matt is a consumate professional. We did one session on pronounciation, but everything else was entirely in his court. I wanted him to make my book is canvas. He did an outstanding job.

  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?

The Inkshares community is incredibly supportive, so they are owed a lot of credit, but my wife deserves the lion’s share. She was my rock throughout the writing process and the book would have never gotten finished without her support and enthusiasm.

  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?

I love audiobooks, though I tend to prefer listening to nonfiction. One of the reasons I was so particular about choosing Matt Mercer to do my book is because I knew he would give each chracter a unique voice. I feel like many fiction audiobooks lose me when they are narrated in monotone.

  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?

Nothing beats Matt Mercer singing Karma Chameleon. That alone is worth the price of admission in my humble opinion.

  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?

I think the two experiences are distinctly different. As I mentioned, I rarely listen to fiction audiobooks, but when I do it’s usually after I’ve already read the book.

  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?

A bottle of expensive bubbly with my family and friends!

Book Tour: Ballad of the Beanstalk

Author: Amy McNulty

Narrator: Kaitlin Descutner

Length: 5 hours 50 minutes

Publisher: Patchwork Press

Released: Jul. 18, 2017

Genre: Fantasy

As her fingers move across the strings of her family’s heirloom harp, 16-year-old Clarion can forget. She doesn’t dwell on the recent passing of her beloved father or the fact that her mother has just sold everything they owned, including that very same instrument that gives Clarion life. She doesn’t think about how her friends treat her like a feeble, brittle thing to be protected. She doesn’t worry about how to tell the elegant Elena, her best friend and first love, that she doesn’t want to be her sweetheart anymore. She becomes the melody and loses herself in the song.

When Mack, a lord’s dashing young son, rides into town so his father and Elena’s can arrange a marriage between the two youth, Clarion finds herself falling in love with a boy for the first time. Drawn to Clarion’s music, Mack puts Clarion and Elena’s relationship to the test, but he soon vanishes by climbing up a giant beanstalk that only Clarion has seen. When even the town witch won’t help, Clarion is determined to rescue Mack herself and prove once and for all that she doesn’t need protecting. But while she fancied herself a savior, she couldn’t have imagined the enormous world of danger that awaits her in the kingdom of the clouds.

A prequel to the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk that reveals the true story behind the magical singing harp.

Narrator Bio

In 2010, I graduated from California University….of Pennsylvania (yes, you read that correctly) with a BA in Theatre and Dance. I have been a professional actress for 7 years in Columbus, OH working in both Musical Theatre shows and Dramatic plays ranging from Classic, Rock & Roll, Modern, British, American Southern, etc. I work as a Children’s Theatre teacher as well as a Commercial Actress where I specialize in voice acting, photo, commercial and tutorial video work. I am interested in new projects and pursuing new opportunities.

I am a big, avid reader, and listen to audio books more than the radio in my car. My favorite genres are historical fiction, fiction, nonfiction and biographies/ memoirs. This is a new endeavor for me, and I am thrilled to explore different characters through storytelling. Reading is a big passion of mine. Bring on the books!

Q&A with Author Amy McNulty
  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
  • I work with a platform called ACX, which matches book rights holders with narrators/producers. I posted my book and Kaitlin Descutner was one of the narrators who auditioned. She’s a professional actress and she brought such life to the story! I loved working with her. She even sings! I sent her the book, we touched base on a few notes, and she produced the whole audiobook from start to finish. I checked it, we tweaked it together, and then it was ready to go!
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?
  • Sometimes. Descriptive writing really helps bring a story to life. At the same time, though, I know some people who prefer listening to audiobooks to reading, and it would be a shame if they couldn’t read all sorts of books because some books lend themselves better to audiobooks than others.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
  • I wasn’t thinking about it when writing (which I discovered was an issue during the recording/editing phase, as I didn’t make who was speaking in a scene or two clear to the narrator), but I always try to get my books made into audiobooks once they’re finished just to get them in front of another audience that might have otherwise passed by them.
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process?
  • Kaitlin did most of it on her own. After she finished the first recording, I got back to her with notes and we tweaked it together. But as far as recording and editing goes, it was all her.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
  • I’ve always wanted to write a fairy tale YA book, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it in a way that’s never been done before. Strangely, when I was watching the Rifftrax Live performance of Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny (it had a Jack and the Beanstalk segment in there—don’t ask, ha), I was struck with the idea of doing a prequel explaining where the magic harp came from. (Since it seems to have a human figure/face in some versions.) Jack and the Beanstalk has never even been one of my favorite fairy tales, but I ran with my idea.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
  • I’m actually increasing my writing pace starting this year, so it’s odd that I’m getting less burnt out the more I work. It helped that I transition to editing more than business writing this year as a freelancer, so my creative energy doesn’t get zapped by my work before I can turn around and write. I discovered the joys of writing on a word processor this year, too. I get more words done by working on a non-glowing screen without internet access, so I’m not distracted. Still, it’s important to take breaks and not force myself to write too much every day.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
  • The songs! Music is essential to the story and Kaitlin made up a tune for the lyrics I wrote for a song.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
  • I love period dramas and classic romance books, and I’m a huge fan of fantasy and the medieval and Elizabethan eras. It’d be hard for me to choose, although I know actually living in those eras would be difficult. More likely than not, I’d be a servant or peasant, not the aristocracy that have such compelling romances in these stories!
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?
  • Hmm, I’m not sure! My favorite actors and actresses are probably too old to take on the roles. I think I pictured Ezra Miller for Mack, though.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
  • It’s absolutely not! Any way people can enjoy stories is legit. Audiobooks make books more accessible to both people with reading disabilities and busy people.
  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?
  • I usually post a GIF of Kermit the frog waving his arms on social media. That’s how I feel when I finish a book.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
  • Standalones allow you to move on to the next project, but with series, you’ve already done some work establishing characters and the world. Series tend to sell more books because you may have hooked people with the first book, but on the other hand, if that first book didn’t hook many people, there’s almost no point in writing more books. Most of my books have sequel/series potential. Writing standalone is actually hard for me! Ballad of the Beanstalk is probably my first standalone where I really have no intention at all of writing a sequel to or series for.
  • What’s next for you?
  • I’m working on my romance series (written under Joy Penny) and then I have a paranormal YA series I want to publish next year.

Book Tour: Time Reavers

Author: Jacob Holo

Narrator: Tess Irondale

Series: Time Reavers, Book One

Length: 8 hours 36 minutes

Publisher: Holo Writing

Released: July 13, 2017

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

The monsters are real, and time is their weapon.

 

Fed up with bad teachers and daily fights with her sister, 16-year-old Nicole Taylor yearns for something better. Sadly, she’s in for a letdown, because the world ends next week.

 

Nicole discovers she has a rare gift. She can bend time around her and even stop it completely. With her powers awakening, she must face the Reavers: horrific killing machines that exist outside our time.

 

Plagued with nightmares and ambushed by monsters at every turn, Nicole has one chance to stop their genocidal invasion. With help from a chain-smoking pyrokinetic, a neurotic sword-wielding assassin, and an icy goth chick with a crossbow, she may stand a chance.

 

But the Reavers are tireless foes, and time is on their side.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jacob Holo. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

The premise of the book was interesting and if you like urban fantasy, this book will be up your alley. The pacing was good- it kept the plot going at a nice pace. Overall, the writing was also pretty good at describing events that would otherwise be difficult to imagine. And the characters are hilarious in their own right.

However, and this is mostly a symptom of my own preferences, it did not do much characterization-wise. I personally really like books that focus on character development and Time Reavers is definitely more about the plot than anything else. I am glad that I listened to this book rather than read it, I feel like it is more exciting to listen to all the action that is going on.

The narrator for this audiobook, Tess Irondale, was absolutely fantastic. Her acting was so good- every cry of pain, every sound of annoyance was spot-on. There are so many characters in this book, but she did such a good job with her voice acting that you could definitely tell which character was which. Also her accents and the noises she made for the monster that are the Time Reavers was phenomenal. Props to her, I would definitely give her other audiobooks a listen just from the spectacular job she did with this audiobook.

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with this book; the only reason that I did not enjoy it more is because it simply didn’t match my reading preferences. If you are the kind of reader that enjoys plot-heavy books with slight fantasy elements that will intrigue you but won’t make your head spin, then I would definitely recommend this book for you!

Q&A with Author Jacob Holo
  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
    • It was actually a lot easier than we expected it to be! Several of our indie author pals had great success with Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), so when we decided to dip our toes into audiobook creation, it was the first place we looked. All we had to do was select a narrator, send the manuscript, and voila! Finished audiobook in a few months. Of course, there was a little more to it than that: Once the first recording was done, we listened to it multiple times to catch and smooth out any errors, so it was definitely an arduous process – but it was also a lot of fun.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • I work closely with my wife H.P. on most projects, and this was all her. She scoured ACX’s database of voice actors for days to find the perfect voice, and Tess Irondale was the clear stand-out. The main character of Time Reavers, Nicole, is a teenage girl who is flung from a life where her biggest problem is rivalry with her adopted sister Amy…to a life where she suddenly has superpowers and has to use them to fight giant, dimension-hopping, time-manipulating cyborg insects. That’s a pretty big change, but Nicole is a no-nonsense girl who does her best to keep a cool head, even when faced with problems as big as that, and we wanted a voice actor who could capture that type of character. However, the novel also required the ability to convey a wide range of accents, ages, and even monster noises, so that was another big factor in our decision. Fortunately, when H.P. heard Tess’ voice samples, she hit every checkbox perfectly!
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • Oh, we worked very closely! Time Reavers is set in at least four different countries with characters from at least as many nationalities, some of whom speak with accents you would expect of their home country (in this case, Russia, Germany, Japan, and the US), one of whom is German but raised in conditions that give him a slight British accent. Then there are the reavers themselves, each of which make unique roars that basically sound like the Balrog from The Lord of the Rings movies combined with a jet engine – which is not exactly an easy sound for the human voice to emulate. Tess did a fantastic job with all of it, though. We went back and forth about the characters’ backgrounds, verbal quirks, and even their fates in upcoming books – the sequel, Mind Reavers, is going to be one of our next projects.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • Lots actually, though I’d say the biggest contributor came from the time I spent in Germany. I really enjoyed interacting with another culture up close and personal during the time I was working over there, and I actually visited some of the locations that appear in the novel.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I’ve had a passion for writing since a very young age. There are times when I’ll do nothing but write for weeks at a time, often putting in ten, twelve, or even fourteen hour days one after another. Somehow that hasn’t burned me out yet, so I think I’m doing pretty well in that regard.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • I’m not. I prefer having an actual book in my hands. But H.P. devours audiobooks, and she loves how a good reader can bring an entirely new dimension to a book. Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle, for example, is one of her favorite series, and though Stiefvater is a stellar writer, Will Patton rocks the reading on the audiobook enough that though H.P. owns the series in print, she almost always revisits the series in audio.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • I think the characters’ relationships come through more vividly in the audiobook version simply because listeners can hear the emotions behind the words rather than just reading them – and there are a lot of intense emotions in this book. Nicole and Amy have a trying relationship (as teen sisters often do), and Daniel and his fellow Tau Guard Rüdiger have a particularly dark and tempestuous history that bubbles up at tense moments. Beyond that, though, Tess’ unique performances for each individual character gives them all a chance to shine even more brightly than they did in the text version. H.P. said she actually developed a little crush on Rüdiger’s voice.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
    • I’d travel into the future and pick up some “history” books or whatever the equivalent turns out to be. Then I’d check them out just to see how far off my science fiction is.
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?
    • It astonishes readers when I say this, but even though my stories play out like movies in my imagination, I rarely have specific people in my for the characters I write. H.P. is the opposite: She pictured teenage versions of Saorise Ronan as Nicole, Daniel Radcliffe as the assassin Daniel Cadinsky, and Rinko Kikushi as the weaponsmith Shoko.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • I don’t consider it cheating, and H.P. finds that sort of elitism very tiring – and frankly, what does it matter? Whether listening or reading, a person’s still experiencing the same content, just in a different package. Plus, one of the reasons why we considered making audiobooks in the first place is because certain groups of people specifically requested them, as reading physical books is somehow difficult for them. For some the reasons were circumstantial – One worked as a truck driver and so had no time to read physical books, but had hours upon hours in which he could plow through audiobooks. For most, though, the reasons were unavoidable – We’ve met a number of people at cons who struggle with dyslexia or similar difficulties, and audiobooks allow them to experience the pleasure of reading while taking away the processing difficulties. All this to say, audiobooks are in no way inferior, just different.
  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?
    • I started another novel – or three! Soon after releasing Time Reavers, I released Bane of the Dead, Throne of the Dead, and Disciple of the Dead, which are a complete trilogy of giant robot novels that take inspiration from mecha anime like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Mobile Suit Gundam. Fun Fact: My love of anime actually influences a lot of my writing, so sometimes I’ll stick anime easter eggs into my books. Daniel’s ringtone? It’s “Cruel Angel’s Thesis,” the theme song from Evangelion.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • I generally find stand-alone novels to be easier to write. Problems come up in the planning and writing of any novel, and the “tools” available to the author in a standalone novel are a lot more flexible since it’s not part of a larger universe. But ultimately, I really enjoy working on a series and getting to dig deeper into difference aspects of a fictional universe as well as show the progression of characters through a series of the events. For instance, I’m really looking forward to exploring the backstory of the reavers in Mind Reavers, which is something I barely touched on in the first book.
  • What’s your favorite:
      1. Food – Sushi is basically its own food group in our house.
      2. Song – Oh, this is a tough one. I’m going to have to go with “Don’t Worry” from Xenoblade Chronicles X, arranged by Hiroyuki Sawano and performed by Aimee Blackschleger. Through a strange series of events (involving my wife’s retina suddenly detaching from the back of her eye, her lung spontaneously collapsing, and this music playing in my car as I drove her around), “Don’t Worry” has, in a strange way, become our song.
      3. Book – Frank Herbert’s Dune. It was the first book I read that really captured my imagination in a way that made me want to create my own worlds.
      4. Television show – Oh, wow. So many good ones to pick from. Hmm, let me think here. I’ll have to go with Doctor Who.
      5. Movie – This one’s easy. Dirty Pair: Project Eden. It’s definitely a product of its time (1986), but once you get past that, it’s a fun, goofy action anime where the simplest mistake can result in a string of explosions.
      6. Band – Anything featuring Yuki Kajiura.
      7. Sports team – The closest I come to watching sports is watching Starcraft tournaments, but if I could choose a favorite player, it would be Scarlet.
      8. City – Kyoto. My brother and I visited the city on my way back from a long term assignment in China, and it was the best vacation of our lives. The city was a fantastic mix of modern conveniences and historical temples and shrines. The weather was perfect, the food was awesome, and the people were ever so friendly.
  • Are any of those things referenced in appearance in your work?
    • Occasionally. For instance, a major sequence in Mind Reavers will take place in Kyoto.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • We encounter a lot of aspiring authors, especially at conventions, and the main piece of advice we give them is always WRITE! A lot of people say they have a great idea for a book but never actually get it down on paper, and that’s the key – If you want to be a published writer, you have to finish your book. It may not be as good as you think it should be, but that’s ok. If you’ve finished the first draft, you’ve already accomplished a lot more than many aspiring authors. From that point, you edit and edit and edit again until you’ve polished it into something you’re ready to share with the world.
  • Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks?
    • An audiobook can be made or ruined by its reader, so make sure you find a reader who suits the characters and style of your book. Time Reavers would not have been the same book if it had been read by a gravelly-voiced old man (even though that same gravelly-voiced old man might be well suited to some of our other books)!
  • What’s next for you?
    • I’ve had the exciting privilege of collaborating on the first book in a new series with New York Times Bestselling author David Weber! It’s a time travel novel, the first draft is nearly complete, and I hope we’ll be ready to share some of the juicy details soon.
