Audio book that sounds like a radio show

I was more than impressed when I listened to this audio book yesterday, and to be this thrilled about a narrator is saying something. After all, I just finished Duma Key by Stephen King, and he pays for the best.

Well, Nathan Tarantla‘s work is leaps and bounds above all that.

For the first time, (that I know of), a book is read with sound effects in the background. There were people screaming, guns firing, thunder rolling, a crackling fire and so much more. I was immediately immersed in the story—and transported to when I used to listen to the old radio shows. I loved those shows, and to have a story read in this vein was enthralling.

I will certainly be seeking his skills when I produce my next audio book.


Wendigo Trail :

She was offered a great job, run the newspaper on the West Coast! Only problem was, her and her husband had to travel the Oregon Trail. There’s more than prairie madness in the west!
The ice cannibal, the horror of the mountains, monster of the plains – the Wendigo. A gruesome tale of supernatural horror and survival. A full audio drama/horror experience.

And if you are a writer seeking a narrator, be sure to drop Nathan a line. PS, he also proofreads.



Where to find free marketing

Hi everyone, it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog. I’ve been mainly focused on my books and scripts and juggling projects. Today however I spent the entire day in marketing. Which brought up the thought that I need to share these tidbits with all of you.

I aim to find as much free marketing as I can, keeping my budget to editing and covers. Here are a few I’ve found. If you know of more, please share in the comments for everyone else too. I’ll post all links at the end.

The new one today (which I did share in a few groups) is an android app Booksniffer. This claims to allow people to follow you and it does allow you to create new free ads. I made this one in three clicks.



A web based classified called Locanto. This is simple to use and even though you need to fill out the form for every location you want to post, the form auto fills most – I use notepad to keep the description – so it’s fairly quick. I also post to Provinces and States, not cities. You can literally have ads worldwide free if you have the time. PS the listing may say 32 days but they run forever without deleting.


And don’t forget Google My Business, both an app and a website. These are located on the google main page, top right corner at the 9-dots, open them (if you aren’t familiar) and scroll down to my business. On the phone, head into the app store and search googlemybuisness and get it.  You don’t need to pay to use it. I don’t, and I get almost 7000 hits a month – sometimes more, depending on my posts.



And this is all I did today.  There are others, but that’s it for now. Again if you know any good free places, give a share!

BookSniffer: PS say Theresa Jacobs referred you and help me out too:
