Dwellers/Country Saga lands Audiobook Deal!

I've got some awesome news for all you audiobook lovers out there:

I've just signed an audio publishing deal with the incredible Podium Publishing, who were recently nominated for FIVE Audie Awards! Podium will be producing audiobooks for ALL 7 books in the Dwellers/Country Saga.

AND they've already announced who the narrator for Adele will be: the amazing Julia Whelan, recently named Audible's Narrator of the Year, and narrator for bestseller Gone Girl and Podium's Audie-nominated Until the End of the World! For those YA dystopian lovers out there, you might also recognize her from Partials by Dan Wells.

Thank you to everyone who contacted me to ask when the Dwellers/Country Saga would be produced as an audio series, all your positive energy and wishes most definitely helped lead us to this amazing opportunity!

More to come soon :)

    1. Thank you!! Honestly, I think your positive energy helped lead to this deal! Partly because of your influence, I was looking into producing the audiobooks on my own, and then my agent was contacted by this publisher! Fate!

    1. Hi Karen! Thanks very much for your interest in the Country Saga on audio :) Unfortunately I don't have better news. My audiobook publisher has not yet set a timeline to produce the books. If they decide NOT to exercise their right to produce the books, in a few months the rights will revert back to me, and I can self-produce the audiobooks, which I plan to do. Hopefully they'll be released some time this year!

  5. Really enjoying the Dwellers saga on Audible, it's been two days and I'm already halfway through book two. Fervently hoping the country saga will be released into audiobook too, in the meantime I'll have to hunt down some physical copies so I can find out what happens next!

    1. Awesome!! Thank you so much, Jade! I'm so glad you're enjoying the Dwellers audiobooks, Julia Whelan and Will Damron did a fantastic job :) I truly hope my audiobook publisher will exercise their right to produce The Country Saga on audiobook, but so far they haven't made a decision so it could be a long time before those books are available in audio form. I hope you're able to read the ebooks or Amazon paperbacks of The Country Saga soon, and that you enjoy the rest of the series!! Thanks for all your support :)

    1. YAY! Thank you so much for your support and kind words, Amy! Good timing, I just received the release date for Ice Country today from my publisher. It will be out on Oct. 25th, and should be available for preorder in just a few days :) Also, Water & Storm Country should be out in mid-November, with the final book, The Earth Dwellers released before the end of December. Can I also ask a favor? Would you mind writing a review on Audible/Amazon for the Fire Country audiobook? You would be the first reviewer and it would mean the world to me! Thanks for everything and I hope you enjoy listening to the rest of the series!
