IHS: Welcome, Sue! Thank you for being with us today. I’m really excited to have you here! What is the title of the book you just completed with us?
IHS: Wonderful and intriguing title! What was your favorite part about bringing this book to audiobook life?
Sue: Hearing Peg come to life was fascinating.
IHS: Glad to hear! Now, switching gears, whether fiction or non-fiction, books are truly inspired work from authors. What was your inspiration for this book?
Sue: The need to laugh (and hopefully other woman also) while surviving menopause was the catalyst to writing this series.
IHS: That's so cool! Is your primary business writing? If so, what do you do for fun? If not, what do you do “in real life”?
Sue: Writing is my main focus after years of raising a large family. I read (and reread) my favorites).
IH: Many authors are not audiobook listeners by nature. Are you? Have you ever listened to an audiobook before your own?
Sue: Traveling with 5 kids is challenging but audio books kept them entertained and quiet.
IHS: When you were listening to your narrator auditions, what was it like to hear your book get voiced by different people?
Sue: Hearing how different people interpret the characters was interesting.
IHS: What were you most worried about when starting out with this audiobook process? Did the worry happen or was it unjustified?
Sue: The only thing I worried about was whether we would find the right voice. We did. Brandolin did a fantastic job.
IHS: Thank you! Was there anything that you probably ACTUALLY should have been worried about instead?
Sue: At this point, I don't think there was anything I should have worried about.
IHS: Interesting! Okay, let’s talk reviews. Do you read your reviews and will you read your listener comments? What do you most like to see in the comments?
Sue: I read every review. Of course I like to see the reader has enjoyed the books, but I truly love it when they mention their favorite characters.
IHS: Okay, once a book is finished, then the work of marketing begins. What do you do to spread the word about a new release?
