In case there was any doubt about my feelings toward Tim Gerard Reynolds


After so many years of singing the praises of Tim Gerard Reynolds (and dedicating one of my most recent books to him), I'm sure most people who know me are already aware that I'm in awe (and constant appreciation) for his talent.  So when Audible.com asked me to pick three books to highlight on their "Front Table," of course I was going to make Tim's narrations my unifying theme.


So, if you've only experience Tim's work through my books, maybe check out some of his other interpretations. I'm confident you'll be glad you did!

The Best of December: Audible's Listener Favorites



There certainly is a sense of pride when being an editor's pick, or hitting a Best-of or Most-anticipated list for a blog site. It shows that people "in the industry" appreciated your work and that you are putting out a quality product. But I must say that making one of the reader's favorites is even sweeter. After all, it's the readers who support the books, and it's the readers who will give a book it's wings (by telling all their friends and family that they MUST read it).

With that said, I'm thrilled that the recently released The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter, was a Listener Favorite for December.

Here are the other books that received this distinction:


And here's some further details about each one:
