Audie Finalist - Listen to This!

Renovating Becky Miller (the audiobook) was just named a finalist in the Audie awards in the Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction category! Woo hoo!

Other finalists include Ever After by Karen Kingsbury, Not Easily Broken by T.D. Jakes, The Penny by Joyce Meyer and Deborah Bedford, and River Rising by fellow Bethany author Athol Dickson.

The Audies®
is sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association (APA) and is the only awards program in the United States recognizing distinction in audio books and spoken word entertainment. Through The Audies® awards competition, publishers are able to enter titles in various genres for recognition as the premier titles. Finalists are selected for each category and from each group of finalist one winner is awarded. Finalists are showcased to the industry-at-large on the APA website, press releases and in association materials.

You can listen to a sample of the Renovating Becky Miller audiobook here.

You'll get a good sense of the talented narrator. Your local library might carry the audiobook (or may order it, if you request it). It's a GREAT listen for carpooling moms. :-)

Congratulations, Sharon! I listened to the sample, and the reader is amazing. She brings Becky to "life" perfectly. And her voices for the children, simply awe-inspiring. I loved being reminded of how personable and authentic your characters are...again. Keep up the good work!

Many, many congratulations, Sharon. I'm so proud of you!

Hey write and tell me about this sickness. I didn't get that email. I'm concerned about you.

Love you much, sis. Always!
