Title of the Book You Just Narrated For Us:
Giving Up Giving Up: The Memoir of a Quitter
What City do you live in?
IHS: What were you most worried about when starting out with this audiobook process? Did the worry happen or was it unjustified?
Abigail: My original worry was the complexity of the process! I was intimidated by the idea of doing it on my own. Enlisting the support of a recorder, producer, and publicists eliminated that worry!
IHS: And, as a follow up, was there anything that you probably ACTUALLY should have been worried about instead?
Abigail: No, worry steals joy ;)

I also cried about the book being in my audible library next to my previous downloaded books written by personal heroes. I became one of my own heroes that night :)

IHS: Many authors are not audiobook listeners by nature. Are you? Have you ever listened to an audiobook before your own?
Abigail: OH YES! I LOVE AUDIOBOOKS! For the pace I move at, reading is a challenge. Audiobooks keep m
