  1. I’m an active narrator for ACX with several titles on Audible.
    In addition to an active social media presence, narration website and story hour events I’m about to launch a local TV Show featuring an Audiobook Club where members will listen to my work, as well as others, and we’ll do call-in Q&A about the featured book. There will be live TV appearances and interviews with members selected at random and other fun stuff. This is a link to a recent interview I did where towards the end of the half hour I talked audiobooks, ACX and Audible! http://bit.ly/TlxFFw
