About The Narrator



Born in Tunbridge Wells, England, Sebastian York spent much of his youth as a military brat throughout Europe, Asia, and the US, which spurred a very adventurous sense for travel and faraway places. When not narrating or traveling, he flies helicopters, collects rare Mongolian artifacts, and dreams of one day acquiring a Sommelier Master certification or hosting a late-night radio program entitled We're So Wet. He lives in New York City.

Audiobook Lovin 2017 Presents: Felicia, The Geeky Blogger



Hi everyone! We've all gotten that look of "What are you talking about" when we, a book lover, speaks to a not so book lover. They just don't get us! Which is why when yo do get to chat with a friend who is also a book lover, time goes by so fast and more than an hour is recorded! LOL

I had the pleasure of meeting Felicia in person at this year's RT Book Lovers Convention as we were both part of the "How To Find Your Listening Audience" with Karen White (narrator), Michelle Cobb (AudioFile Magazine & Insatiable Press). I loved being part of the panel and getting to hang out with Felicia. So of course I immediately thought of her when I was thinking it would be a great idea to chat with a fellow blogger and audiobook lover which you can listen below. I've also included some of Felicia's favorites that we think you'll want to check out!

Audiobook Lovin 2017 Presents: Dannika Dark Spotlight Feature




Hi Everyone!
I wanted to do a feature on Dannika Dark as I not only do I love her books but her audiobooks are phenomenal! Her books are narrated by Nicole Poole and I adore her! Both have been our guest since our first Audiobook Lovin 2015 and we are extremely appreciative and thankful! I had the pleasure of chatting with Nicole for this year's Audiobook Lovin', click here to listen and learn more about Nicole! 


Dannika has a new series CROSSBREED and I have enjoyed getting to know the new characters and a certain vampire that was all about his privacy and came off a bit aloof when we first met him in the MAGERI SERIES. No worries, if you have yet to read the MAGERI Series series, you can start with this series and then work your way to the MAGERI Series! 

What I LOVE about Dannika's books is that while they are all in the same WORLD, each series and each book is uniquely different! There is also a little bit of everything for everyone. 


“WE ALL HAVE SECRETS, RAVEN. DARK ONES. EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US.”


Ravenheart
(Crossbreed Series, Bk #2)
By Dannika Dark

Blurb:

Two weeks after joining Keystone, Raven Black is ready to take on the world as a criminal hunter for hire. If only her partner wasn’t a bloodsucking Vampire with a penchant for getting under her skin. Despite her lavish surroundings, Raven misses the freedom of life without rules. And Keystone’s next assignment is about to test her self-control in more ways than one. 

Dead bodies are popping up in the human district, and all signs point to a Breed serial killer. In order to catch him, Raven and Christian embark on a mission that takes their partnership into uncharted waters. Lives are at stake. Can Raven trust her instincts, or will she fall into a web spun from lies and deceit?

Time is running out in this pulse-pounding tale of dark secrets, murder, and forbidden desires.

Audiobook Lovin' 2017 Presents: Kristen Ashley Feature & Giveaway



When you give an author a new middle name, you know they ROCK!
Kristen "OMG She Rocks" Ashley or Kristen "Freaking Awesome" Ashley, either one works, but regardless of the middle name you give her, Kristen Ashley delivers a great story and when those great stories get paired with narrators that not only are great voices but performers, then it becomes MAGIC! 


I have loved all the books I've read/listened to by Kristen Ashley and COMPLICATED is among them! When I first learned Kristen was doing an exclusive story for Audible I was all giddy because, well, this is KRISTEN ASHLEY! Kristen is a truly gifted story teller! The Narrators ROCKED! You can read my full review here. Below is an audio clip for you to listen and fall for! WARNING, you'll be left wanting more! COMPLICATED was the first time I listened to anything narrated by Lance and I quickly started looking up all the books he's narrated and adding them to my TBR list.

Audiobook Lovin' 2017 Presents: Jessica Clare - Guest Post




Hi Everyone and happy Friday!!
Today we have Author Jessica Clare sharing her Top 10 Audiobooks! We've include the links to each of the her favorites along with several audio clips for you to check out! Once you've viewed and listened, remember to enter the giveaway!


In honor of Audiobook Lovin 2017, I thought I’d throw together my Top 10 Audio series. When I read on the Kindle, I just grab the first thing I find on there (normally romance). When I listen to an audiobook, there’s a whole nexus of things I look for in a ‘perfect’ audio listen. It’s got to have that sweet spot of ‘narrator’ plus ‘story’ plus ‘excitement’. We’ve all had the audiobook that was so monotone that it puts you to sleep instead of listening to it (amirite?) so here are my favorite audio ‘reads’ and ones that I’ve listened to more than once!

Audiobook Lovin' 2017 Presents: 1001 Dark Nights




Hi Everyone! Today we're spotlighting
 1001 Dark Nights 
a collection of individual novellas by a variety of authors!
What we love about 1001 Dark Nights is that its a fantastic opportunity to discover new authors or check out a genre you haven't read before! Each story is a standalone! Though the characters or the "world" may be part of a series that is already published you will have no issues jumping right in and enjoying the story. In fact, in most cases you will run over to the author's website and dive straight into the rabbit hole that are their books! It's a good thing, trust me!

Audiobook Lovin' 2017 Presents: Aprilynne Pike - Guest Post




Welcome Aprilynne Pike to Audiobook Lovin! 
Both my niece and daughter love Aprilynne's books and are so happy she is a guest this year! 



I’ve always loved audiobooks. When I was in college, I would get them from the library when I went on long drives. And considering I was a ten-hour drive from my parents’ house, that happened fairly frequently. But in the last few years, as I’ve become an author with both deadlines and children, they’ve become vital. I’ve discovered that I need words the way most people need food—multiple times a day. Audiobooks have become, for me, the equivalent of those cell phone headset things that people have in their cars. A way for me to read hands-free. Without them, I simply wouldn’t get a chance to read as much as my creative brain needs me to. (I never get to read as much as I *want* to, but I’m not actually convinced such a thing is possible.:)) I’m pretty much constantly found with earbuds in, listening to what I’m sure people think is music … but no, it’s stories! Here are my Top Five best times to listen to books:

Audiobook Lovin 2017 Presents: We said we'd listen to anything.......



When we say we'd listen to ANYTHING from our favorite narrators, we tend to mean that we'll auto buy the book regardless of genre or author. This is a wonderful thing as it leads to discovering new authors as well as genres we never thought we'd like or want to read. Then again, I know many have said (including me) that they'd hand over the yellow pages to "insert your favorite narrator here" so we can listen to them and their voice. Well, last year, Audible took us, the loyal and audiobook loving audience at our word! They created the "Excerpts from The Encyclopaedia Britannica: A Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, Literature and General Information, Eleventh Edition" with some of our favorite, "Must Listen To" narrators. Oh I'm sure Audible Studios had a BLAST with this! Go grab your copy at Audible, it's free! Worth the listen because the narrators, all true professionals, ROCKED IT!!! Listen to the two samples below and lets reconnect in a few...  




Excerpts from The Encyclopaedia Britannica: A Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, Literature and General Information, Eleventh Edition
Written by: Various
Narrated by: full cast

Length: 13 mins

Prepare yourself for the ultimate multicast performance. We've gathered many of Audible's most popular narrators to bring to life some of the most extraordinary words ever written. 19 words, in fact, carefully selected and arranged alphabetically as in their original source: the 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica. We created this enlightening journey from AUDIENCE to LITERATURE because you asked for it. You said you could listen to your favorite narrators read the phone book, bookcase assembly instructions, or a restaurant menu. With this production we've proven that a truly talented narrator can, in fact, take any work and make it extraordinary. Enjoy!

The full list of narrators includes:

Hi Everyone and welcome to Audiobook Lovin 2017, a month long event celebrating Audiobooks, the Authors and the Narrators! 


Thank you, Viviana, for the invitation. It’s a pleasure to be with you and your readers.

I don’t listen to music when I’m writing because I like to hear how the words sound in my head and I find music distracting. But when I’m thinking about the novel or when I’m trying to evoke the mood of a particular scene, I listen to music. Here are a few songs from the playlist of my new book:

La Vie en Rose – Edith Piaf
My new book is set primarily in Paris. No other song evokes the beauty and history of Paris such as this one. Edith Paris was a French treasure.

Audiobook Lovin 2017 Presents: Piper Goodeve Guest Post


Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to have Narrator Piper Goodeve with us today!



When Gabe and I first started dating, I had been doing audiobooks for about six months.  He said he was really interested in getting into narration, being a professional actor himself.  As luck would have it, in 2012 one of the authors I narrated for regularly, the amazing Jasinda Wilder, had a book for me to do that also had chapters in first person male.  She asked if I knew anyone to recommend, and I sent her three names, one of which was Gabe.  She loved his audition and we started doing dual narration books for Jasinda right then.  The dual narration craze took off around that same time, and now we’ve done dozens of dual narration titles for various authors and publishers.  And we are now also married. ☺
