Gotta love those audiobooks!

Yesterday I got the good word that A Fatal Chapter will appear as an audiobook the same day as the print and ebook editions.  A Fatal Chapter will be the 9th Booktown Mystery, and will be published on June 2, 2015.  (The Good News:  I've seen the cover and it's gorgeous.  The Bad News: I haven't been given permission to show it off yet.)

Everyone keeps saying that AUDIO IS THE NEXT BIG THING.  I'd like to believe it.  Why?  Because I currently have 11 books out in audio. (And another one in production.)  The entire Booktown Mystery series is available in audio as are the first three Jeff Resnick Mysteries.  (Even as I type this, the next book in the series, Cheated By Death, is being recorded for audio.)

But I'm not the only Chick with audio books.  Leann's Yellow Rose and Cats In Trouble series are on Audio.  Mary's Talk Radio series is on audio.  Mary Jane's/Victoria Abbott's Book Collectors series is on audio, too!  And Ellery's Book Resort Mysteries have just been sold to audio, too.

So if you're an audiophile, there are a lot of cozy mysteries out there on audio you can listen to.

Where do you listen to audiobooks?
