Hi Abigail,

Thank you so much for connecting with us today! We are excited to learn more about the woman behind this book!

First, some particulars:

Your Name:

Abigail Gazda

Title of the Book You Just Narrated For Us:

Giving Up Giving Up: The Memoir of a Quitter

What City do you live in?

Scottsdale, AZ

IHS: What were you most worried about when starting out with this audiobook process? Did the worry happen or was it unjustified?

IHS: And, as a follow up, was there anything that you probably ACTUALLY should have been worried about instead?

Abigail: No, worry steals joy ;)

IHS: What was your favorite part about listening to this book come to life?

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: Whether fiction or non fiction, books are inspired work from authors. What was your muse for this book?

Abigail: Sharing transformation and self love. Sharing what is possible when we give up what holds us back and grab onto our power.

I also love ANYTHING adventure! I love discovery and exploration. I also highly value quality time with quality people.

IHS: Many authors are not audiobook listeners by nature. Are you? Have you ever listened to an audiobook before your own?
