WILMINGTON, NC, February 15, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — For some of us, reading can become an all-consuming pastime. But it can be a challenge to find the time to read as many books as we would like. Enter the audiobook, which allows us to “listen” to a book while working, driving, or doing other things that don’t require our undivided attention and concentration. In a recent blog post titled “My Experience with the Audiobook Revolution,” bestselling author Donna Fletcher presented the fascinating history of audiobooks and the reasons why a low-tech, slow-adapter finally took the plunge.

“For many years,” Crow wrote, “I have been asked frequently, ‘Are your books available in audio?’ My answer was sketchy, I have had several titles recorded for the blind—which pleases me greatly—and in 2013 my publisher produced audiobooks of what were then the first two titles in my Elizabeth and Richard series. That was it.

“Until a few months ago when Amazon began offering voice-generated audiobooks. Being a low-tech, slow-adapter, I hesitated. But in January I took the plunge with ‘Going There,’ Tales from the Riviera and Beyond. I was amazed. Truly, three clicks did the job. I selected a lovely British female voice, set the price near the minimum allowed, and clicked publish. I now have 23 audiobooks (about half of my published titles) available for readers who want the listening experience.”

Crow’s books now available in audiobook version include selections from her mystery, history and romance series and 2 short story collections beginning with “Going There,” Tales from the Riviera and Beyond 7 short stories of various genres set within the memoir of a memorable travel experience.

The complete Elizabeth and Richard Literary Suspense series is available in audio. In “A Jane Austen Encounter” a second honeymoon visit to Jane Austen’s homes turns deadly; and “A Most Singular Venture” finds a murderer cloaked in the gentility of Jane Austen’s London. Other literary encounters are Rudyard Kipling in “The Flame Ignites,” Dorothy L Sayers in “The Shadow of Reality,” and William Shakespeare in “A Midsummer Eve’s Nightmare.”Titles available from The Monastery Murders are: “A Very Private Grave” (an itinerary of terror across a holy terrain during Lent), “A Darkly Hidden Truth” (ancient puzzles and modern murder at Easter), “A Newly Crimsoned Reliquary” (murder lurks in the shadows of Oxford’s hallowed shrines at Halloween), and “An All-Consuming Fire” (a Christmas wedding in a monastery—if the bride can escape the murderer lurking on the Yorkshire moors).

The Lord Danvers Investigates Victorian true-crime series offers “A Most Inconvenient Death” which involve Danvers in the brutal Stanfield Hall murders, and “A Lethal Spectre,” setting a glittering London season against the horrors of an Indian mutiny.

From the Where There is Love series we have “Where Love Triumphs,” the story of a lame Cambridge scholar who learns life-changing lessons about love, and “Where Love Shines” a lieutenant blinded in the Charge of the Light Brigade encounters love from one of Flornce Nightengale’s nurses.

The Celtic Cross Series brings Scottish and Irish history alive through historic people: “The Refiner of the Realm” (Queen Margaret), “The Planting of Ulster” (Lady Montgomery), “The Strife of Ascendancy” (King Billy), “The Hammering of the Inhabitancy” (Oliver Cromwell), “The Shaping of the Union” (Wolfe Tone), and “The Dawning of Peace” (Lady Gregory).

Family saga trilogy The Daughters of Courage recounts Idaho’s history in 3 volumes: “Kathryn” (Idaho pioneers), “Elizabeth” (the Great Depression and World War II), and “Stephanie” (the turbulent days of the 1970s).

“A Lighted Lamp,” Scenes of Christmas Through Time, offers short stories ranging from Scotland a thousand years ago through Regency festivities and American pioneers, to modern England.
