How I Got Sunburned Listening to Fire Country

So here's the thing...I'm not a big audiobook person. So when almost two years ago Podium Publishing approached my agent with an offer to buy the audio rights to the entire Dwellers/Country Sagas, I was skeptical. Podium, however, made us an offer we couldn't refuse, lined up the most amazing award-winning narrators from the industry, and produced the first three books in The Dwellers Saga (The Moon Dwellers, The Star Dwellers, The Sun Dwellers).
And yet I still couldn't bring myself to listen to more than a few pages of the books. Something about hearing my own words spoken aloud freaked me out!
Fast forward a year. The Moon Dwellers, narrated by Julia Whelan and Will Damron WINS an award from The Society of Voice Arts. Yeah, crazy, that's a pic of the trophy I got, and me acting a little excited. (first award ever, woot!)
Anyway...now Podium has just released the latest book in the series, which can be listened to either before or after The Dwellers Saga, doesn't matter what order. And guess what? I actually GOT SUNBURNED listening to this book at the beach because I couldn't get enough of it. Why? Not because I think I'm the best writer in the world or anything, but because my narrator, Khristine Hvam, who has narrated other bestselling books like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, was INCREDIBLE as the voice of Siena. She didn't just narrate the character, she BECAME her.
I truly believe this is a fantastic audiobook and I hope you enjoy listening to it. NOTE: even if you have never listened to an audiobook, you can get this book for FREE on Audible by signing up for a trial. Just sayin', what do you have to lose?

HAPPY LISTENING, my friends!
