The first three books in the Haunting Danielle series are now available on audiobook format.
For those who belong to Audible and have purchased the eBooks on Amazon, you can get the audio versions of books one and two for less than three bucks each. It appears to be a special price, so I don’t know how long it will last.
I’ve been happy with the narrator, Romy Nordlinger, a talented actress. I believe she’s captured Danielle and Lily’s personalities in her reading. I’ll admit, I’m never completely satisfied when a female narrator does the male voices—and I am rarely satisfied when a male narrator reads the lines of a female character. So basically, the only way I will ever be completely satisfied—get a male and female narrator for each book—hahaha. Well, I don’t think that is going to happen.
There is also one other issue I wanted to point out. It’s not really the narrator’s fault—it’s probably mine and what happens when we try to take written words to audio format. During the story, there are times a character may think something. It is usually Danielle, silently making comments about Walt, who most people are unaware even exists.
In the book, I sometimes include “she thought” or something like that. But often, I just present the thought after a comment, out of quotes and in italic. For the reader, it is obviously a thought. But unfortunately, when taken to an audiobook, some listeners may be confused as to why Danielle is talking about Walt to a person who is unaware of him.
I don’t think it is a major issue, and once explained, I think it will be obvious what is going on when listening to one of the books.
Overall—I am exceedingly pleased and have no regrets as to the choice of narrator. For those who choose to listen to the stories, I hope you enjoy the audiobooks as much as I have.
