By: On the Rock Books
SHREVEPORT, La. - May 10, 2023 - PRLog -- World-renowned Lennon historian Jude Southerland Kessler, author of The John Lennon Series historical narrative, has just released her first ever audiobook – or rather, audiodrama – version of "She Loves You," Volume 3 in her acclaimed book series. It is available for purchase through Audible and all major audiobook platforms.

In addition to the source material written by Kessler, the audiobook is narrated by professional voice actor Scott R. McKinley and features original music by British Invasion-inspired band The Black Ties as well as background music and cover art by Rande Kessler. "She Loves You" takes the listener "into the eye of the hurricane" that was Beatlemania. Readers get to join the band as their fame not only explodes, but begins to take its toll.

Annotated with authoritative sources and heavily documented with end notes, the audiobook edition also boasts two new chapters (chronicling the events of The John Lennon Series Volume 1, Shoulda Been There, and Volume 2, Shivering Inside), a chapter featuring the author telling intimate stories of her interviews with Allan Williams, Bob Wooler, Charlie Lennon, Louise Harrison and more, plus personalized notes read by the author herself.

"This a time machine," says Kessler. "Nothing less. The audiobook of She Loves You will transport you back to 1963 for 33 fab hours. For Beatles fans, this is a chance to relive it all. For those who missed The Beatles, hang on! This is one wild ride!"

Voice actor Scott McKinley studied and captured the voices of 183 people for the book, including all four Beatles, Brian Epstein, Ed Sullivan and many more.

"For this book in particular I listened to every interview that every participant gave as close to 1963 as I could find, on YouTube or from my own collections of recordings," says McKinley. "I got to not only narrate a book about John Lennon and The Beatles during their breakthrough year of 1963-4, but I had a chance to voice-act all of the participants. Jude's style includes enough authentic dialogue to really breathe life into the narrative."

As for '60s authenticity in the music, Kessler selected songs by New York metro-based band The Black Ties after hearing them perform at the Fest for Beatles Fans in Jersey City. "They have the perfect 'Beatles' sound for the project!" she says. And the background music was supplied by Rande Kessler, Jude's husband and an accomplished musician and artist.
