Wow! Last week was an incredible experience for me. I haven’t had an opportunity to fully digest all that happened. Trust me. More about my Audiobook Blogger of the Year adventure will follow soon. Still, I must share one thing to kick off June Is Audiobook Month.
Since the dawn of the Armchair Audies, the APA judges and I have not seen eye to eye. I began the 2015 Armchair Audies season 0 for 3. This year I upped the ante by judging two categories. I could have left the Audies Thursday night 0 for 5, but an Armchair Audies miracle happened. The APA judges and I agreed in both categories!
Euphoria by Lily King, narrated by Simon Vance and Xe Sands (Blackstone Audio) took the Literary Fiction category.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, write and read by Neil Gaiman and a full cast (Harper Audio) took the Multi-Voiced Performance category.
And, as I just so happened to be at the Audies in person, this was possible:
Can you believe it? There I am, hanging out at the Naudies, an Audies after party, with Simon Vance and Xe Sands! This audiobook fan has died and gone to heaven. Life is good!
Giveaway: To celebrate my evening with audiobook royalty and their victory that I predicted, I’m going to give away a digital copy of Audie Award winning Euphoria to one lucky reader. To enter, just leave a comment here by Friday, June 5th. I randomly select the winner Saturday morning.
Good luck and Happy June Is Audiobook Month!
