Good news, everyone! I’ve got a brand-new audiobook for you. It only took four years to make :)

Emma, by Jane Austen

I started this as a duet with Annie in 2008. She drifted away from Librivox before we finished and the project lay dormant until I asked Laurie Anne if she’d finish it with me. It took us about a year but we did it! I read the even chapters and then when I got to the end I worked backwards for a while, so the end of the book is just me. So — three different readers but all excellent (if I say so myself) and most of volume 3 is just me.

I’m so happy this is finished because I’ve been wanting a new book for my all-night audiobook playlist but I have strict requirements: it must be a book I already know really well, and it must be read by me or a reader with a similar style.

Many thanks to Aravis for proof-listening and cataloging!

Hope you like it!

    Oh boy! I haven’t read that in so long it will seem quite fresh to me I think; I will queue it up for my art-time listening! Thank you! <3

    I just had to look you up to tell you that I listen to two of your audio books to help me fall asleep every night(alternating btw them). You have a wonderfully soothing voice, and I love listening to you read the stories. Although I’m an adult, I have so enjoyed ‘The Secret Garden’ and ‘A Little Princess’. It takes me back to my days as an early reader. The only trouble is, I stay up too late because I want to keep listening! :) I just wanted to say thank you for recording them, and I will look for others. Take care!

    Wanted to stop by and tell you that I just finished The Fellowship of The Ring and am listening to Emma. I enjoy them so much! Both your wonderful reading voice and the casual style – somehow, hearing the kitty walk between you and the microphone makes it even more fun to hear a book read out loud.

    Thanks so much for sharing your gift!
