Road Trips & Audio Books (plus a Giveaway!)

The Making of an Audiobook (Part I)

I’ll begin this post by telling you that I’m a huge fan of audio books. My family–and especially my kids–listen to them all the time. It’s always been a dream of mine to have a book on audio and as the rights holder to This Quiet Sky, the opportunity presented itself.
