Hip Hip Hurray - First Audiobook Alert
The Day is Finally Here
I know I only talked to you yesterday, but things are happening at such a pace I can barely keep up. And who am I to deprive you from the pleasure of sharing my happiness with me? Without you, my lovely readers (no, scrap that, my lovely friends), I wouldn't be able to do what I love. What's the point in writing, if it doesn't reach anyone? Of course, there is always my own pleasure, but I would rather share. The feeling when someone reads one of my stories is priceless, and if I know that I managed to bring a smile to someone else's face with my work, or that they benefited from it one way or another, I couldn't be happier.
And guess what? From today, you won't only be able to read my stories, but listen to them, too. Yep, that's right. One of them, at least (for now), but don't you worry, another two are already on their way to the virtual audiobook shelves. I will keep the upcoming titles a secret for now (yes, I know, I do that too often, but I can't help it, but rest assured, the suspense is killing me, too). However, I'm going to tell you about the one that made its way to the audiobook world today. It's been a long process, but totally worth it! And the narrator is a lovely person, with a sensual and seductive voice. Oh, boy, does she know what she is doing? You can bet. Get ready for some steamy, mouth-watering (and of course, kinky) action. You are in for a special treat.
When I first listened to the audio version, I must admit, it kept me glued to my chair. No kidding! I was almost biting my nails, anticipating what would happen next. Now this might sound funny, considering that I wrote the story, so I knew what was going to happen. Well, that might be true, but the way the narrator acted out the scenes made goose bumps form on my arms, my back, everywhere! I was captured by her voice, by her style, by the way she fell in love with my story. And guess what? She made me forget that I was the author of the story. She made me forget everything. For a few minutes I was transported to her world, or to the world of my characters. I was but a reader (or listener), drinking up her every word.
And it was phenomenal. I must admit, I don't normally listen to audiobooks myself, but having listened to this one, I finally understood why people said it was taking books to a whole new level. Of course, in my stories I already made sure to engage all the senses (including those people don't talk about in public), but of course that was 'just' my imagination. Well, I always knew I was a visual person, and I would love to see my stories brought to life by professional actors on the big screen (yep, I know, but one is allowed to dream, right?), but never in a million years would I have thought that I would fall head-over-heels for the sound alone.
But alas, the magic enchanted me, and I'm still under its spell. And it has a lot to do with my lovely narrator, and her unique and charming voice. I couldn't have asked for a better person, she is truly God's gift to mankind (both to authors, and readers alike). Pippi del Rio is not only a fabulous narrator and an extremely talented actress, but a wonderful person, too. And I haven't even got to the best part yet: she found me, instead of it being the other way around. Could I ask for more? Doubt it.
Ta Da Da Da... The Title Is...
Sorry for keeping you waiting my lovely friends, and I know I probably should have started with this one, but hey, you know me by now. I like to keep up the suspense till the end (and you know, the best part always comes after dessert anyway, so why the rush?). Anyway, if you are still with me, then I have good news for you. Great news, actually.
My first audiobook is one of the stories you love most. You see, even when selecting this special title, I had YOU in mind. So, it is only natural that The Bucket List gets to be the first. And, in fact, it was one of the very first erotica stories I created. I love the synchronicity in that, don't you? The lovely little erotica short story will have you purring, especially read by the lovely Pippi del Rio. I can guarantee that.
Her voice is like smooth silk caressing all your senses, leaving you aroused and wanting more. If you already like my stories, you will love them being told in her unique style. She adds that extra bit of spice that makes it even more hot and steamy. I think the fact that I kept drooling over my keyboard and dropped whatever I was doing, closed my eyes and sighed heavily all the way through I was listening to the audiobook says it all. Or shall I say more? Well, of course *grins like a Cheshire cat, probably even sticking her tongue out while writing this*.
Oh, yes, there is more...
Now, I heard many times that audiobooks are way too expensive. And I did see a price or two that made me cringe (that was partly why I have been so hesitant to purchase one myself, I must admit). But, I think The Bucket List is an exception in a way, being a short story and all. It is even cheaper (!) than the paperback version, and isn't more expensive than a cup of coffee. (Oh, I will definitely use that pun when A Special Cup of Coffee comes out in audiobook format, haha). Oops, I wasn't supposed to mention that. Ssshh, please keep it a secret for now, will you? Thank you!
Okay, back to The Bucket List. Because it is only available via Amazon, iTunes and Audible, it has a special, discounted price. Again, I had YOU in mind when I made that decision. So that anyone can listen. And, just like all my Kindle e-books are £0.99, my audiobooks will always be discounted, too. You might ask at this point (and quite rightly so): how much is that discounted price? It is no secret, on the contrary. I am really proud that I can present you with a price as low as £3,40. Yes, that's correct. Only £3,40. You see? Not more than a cup of coffee. And trust me, I have a very strong feeling that you will enjoy this even more. Be careful though, don't burn your tongue (and other parts of your body)...
It all starts with a stupid New Year's resolution, when Mary decides that it's about time to get over her ex. She is willing to kiss the first stranger she spots at the spa, hoping to ignite that spark once more. But she is in for a surprise and gets more than what she bargained for at midnight.
Have you ever felt as if you were unable to live without something, not even knowing what it was? Right now, this scent makes me feel that way. I want to know where it is coming from. And yet I'm afraid to turn, because then I might realize that I'm only dreaming, and this heavenly sensation that got all my nerves on edge is but a fantasy.
Besides, it must be some kind of a cologne, and as such, it belongs to a person. A male, most probably. And if his smell has such an effect on me, I don't even want to imagine what he could make me feel (or do). And as far as I can tell, most people are here with their partners anyway. Skinny ones, none-the-less. Not that I have a problem with my curves, but looking at them makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me remember what I saw on my ex-favorite sofa, the way Greg was pumping my skinny best friend.
I let out a sigh as the scent becomes stronger and is accompanied by a strange sound. It takes me a few seconds to realize that someone is clearing his throat. Most probably the owner of the heavenly cologne. I let out another sigh, which probably makes me seem like an idiot. Oh, well. I guess I have to turn now, but I glance at the clock once more, just to make sure that I don't have to fulfil my promise just yet. I relax a bit, realizing that I still have two minutes till midnight.
I glance to my right, and my heart skips a beat as I notice you. Your questioning eyes explore my flushed face, and I inhale sharply, as your gaze travels down my chest. I couldn't be more glad that my bottom part is under the water....
