I received an email today to let me know that Charlie’s Hero was now available in audiobook format. It’s my first audiobook so I’m so excited! 🙂
Dreamspinner Press contacted me early in the new year to let me know the audiobook was on its way. I was emailed some voice auditions to listen to, and was thrilled when the fabulous Joel Leslie agreed to narrate the story.
I haven’t listened to the whole book yet – I’m way too freaked out to listen to my own words being read back at me – but will do so shortly. In the meantime, if any of you are audiobook fans, and choose to listen to Charlie’s Hero, I’d love your feedback.
I’m a big fan of audiobooks and always have one on the go. They give me something to listen to on the long car trip I do regularly, and also while I’m doing mundane tasks such as housework. It’s amazing how much more pleasant tasks like dusting and ironing are, when you have a gay romance to keep you company. 🙂
Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that to be part of a family, he doesn’t need his parents.
The audiobook runs for 5 hours and 55 mins.
So a big thank you from me to Dreamspinner Press and Joel Leslie for enabling this audiobook to be available.
Happy reading (or should I say listening?),
