Audiobook Lovin 2019: Corinne Michaels Interview & Giveaway

Please welcome Author Corinne Michaels to 
Audiobook Lovin'!!

Hi Corinne!! Welcome to Audiobook Lovin! Thrilled you’re joining us this year!

Oh my God! Thank you so much for having me! I’m so excited

Tell us a bit about yourself, how long have you’ve been writing and how you get started? 

Well, I’ve always written, even as a small child. I just never thought it would ever really become anything. Then, a few friends, who are pretty fantastic authors, urged me to actually finish a story. It’s been about five years now, which it feels longer some days and much less others.

Where do you get the ideas for your books? 

They come from anywhere and everywhere. Songs are a big influence! There’s no telling what I’ll hear, read, think of, and be like . . . OH! STORY!

What do you love about the genre you write in? 

I love that no matter what the couples go through, love always wins in the end. I believe that every person deserves to be loved as well, and no matter the story, they find their version of it.

Is there a sub-genre of romance that you’d like to write in but have yet?

I have a historical/alternate type of story that I’m going to write. When? I don’t know, but I’d like to.

Are you a Plotter or Pantser and how does that affect your writing? 

I’m a pantser. I tried to plot once and that really didn’t work out for me. LOL

You currently have 19 audiobooks listed in Audible, what made you decide to have your books in the audio format? 

I am a huge audio listener so it’s very important for me to be able to offer my books to the audio world. 

The casting of narrator(s) is very important…. Were you part of the casting of all, some or none  the audiobooks?  If you were, how did you come to select your narrator? 

I was able to choose the narrators for all of the ones I self-published.  I definitely looked at tones, accents, and I am so happy with all of their performances. They’ve all nailed the voices I had in my head. (ha) I think that the narrator makes or breaks the book. There are some I’ve listened to where I enjoyed the story as I read, but the audio wasn’t great. And vice versa. 

Do you work closely with the narrators and provide them with information about each character to ensure their performance is accurate (for example - accents and personalities)? 

Yes, for sure. We always discuss personalities and if there is a certain accent or attitude. I’ve been so fortunate to work with some of the best.

Do you listen to your audiobooks after they are finished?  Why or why not?

I actually do listen! I like to hear the way the narrator took the story and made it come to life. Also, I have to proof it and make any adjustments that I feel are necessary. 

What do you love/like about audiobooks?

I love that they’re portable! I don’t have a lot of time to read an actual book any more so when I’m out running errands or playing chauffeur to my kiddos, I can listen!

If you could pick one person (male or female) to narrator your life who would it be and why? 

Oh, definitely Andi Arndt. She is near and dear to my heart and she would definitely nail my personality. 

Before we go… what are you working on now & what’s next? 

I just put the finishing touches on a duet. INDEFINITE will release 6/24 and INFINITE 7/22. They will be narrated by Andi Arndt and Jason Clarke. I can’t wait to hear their magic!
