"Haunting Miss Trentwood" Novel Released as Audio Book via Amazon's Audiobook Creation Exchange
Author Belinda Kroll brings quirky Victorian Romance to audio book lovers via Amazon's new independent audio book publishing service, which removes middle-man between voice over narrators and authors
"Haunting Miss Trentwood," having sold consistently since its original paperback and eBook release in October 2010, will be available as an audio book in mid-June 2012 at Audible.com, Amazon.com, and iTunes. A synopsis of "Haunting Miss Trentwood" is available at the author's website, http://worderella.com/
Narrator Arielle Lipshaw captures the quirky mood of the Gothic romance by narrating with a wistful "Elizabeth Bennet" voice. Readers will truly feel as if they are sitting down to "story time" as Lipshaw mimics male and female British English characters. The book runs just under seven hours and moves along at a quick, entertaining pace. Author Belinda Kroll wrote a blog post summarizing the process, available at http://worderella.com/
The final release price of the book will be between $15 and $20 USD.
