Audiobook Review: Befriended by Sarah Holman, narrated by Kimberly Worthy

Title: Befriended
Written By: Sarah Holman
Genre: Christian Romance with mild Fantasy elements (mostly the names of people and places)
Recommended Ages: Any, but teens and older would enjoy it more

Introduction:

I hadn’t read any of Sarah’s Tales of Taelis stories before, so this was my first taste of them. I enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind reading more in the future. The only thing I didn’t like about this audiobook was the narrator’s voice for Eleanor was too high-pitched and whiny. She made Eleanor sound like a little girl rather than a young woman.

May 2018 Goals

Happy May! A month ago, I said that April in Wisconsin could mean either temperatures of 70 or we could get snow. Well, we got both. Over 30″ of snow this month, including one weekend snowstorm where we got about 20″! Then yesterday, the temps got to 77 degrees! Talk about crazy weather.

April 2018 Goals

Happy April! Spring is just about here. Of course, in Wisconsin, that can mean just about anything. We might have more snow yet sometime this month, or it might get up to 70 degrees (Fahrenheit).

All in all, March was a good month for me. I didn’t get as much done as I thought I would with my goals, but I did do some other things instead. Instead of the HLM and T&O edits, I got the house a bit more organized. There is still some organizing to do, but I feel good about how much I was able to do.

How was your month? What is the weather like where you are?

  • Continue work on compilations (done!)
  • Rewrite Tales of the East #2 (the new #2) (Partially done. 13,000+ words have been written; about 2/3rds through)
  • Finish HLM edits #2 and #3 (Decided not to do this)
  • Finish T&O edits #2 and #3 (Decided not to do this)
  • Pick recital pieces and perfect them (done!)

April Goals

  • Finish Lo, How a Rose (Tales of the East #2)
  • Start and finish Rock of Ages (Tales of the East #3)
  • Finish Trust and Obey edits #2-4 and send to proofreaders
  • Send Rachel’s blog tour info and promote it
  • Get audiobooks ready for publication and set publication date

Do you have any goals for April? I’d love to hear them.

It’s really happening!

What’s really happening? I’m glad you asked. Earlier this spring, I got in contact with someone who had expressed interest in reading books for audio. I asked him for an audition and LOVED what he did with my story. So, I hired him to record it. I don’t know the exact release date since it’s been slightly slow in recording, but I do have a cover thanks to Perry Elisabeth Design!

I absolutely love it and can’t wait to share the audio sample with you soon.
