Audiobook Master

As all you know JUNE IS AUDIOBOOK MONTH!

Sadly, family matters have kept me away from blogging since the past two weeks, and even though things still a little hard on my end I couldn’t  just not do anything to celebrate my addiction.

So, since I won’t be able to do many posts during this coming month, I will run a contest in search for the AUDIOBOOK MASTER!

Every week I will post 10 audio clips, the participants with the higher scores  from each category will advance to a drawing for a whole year of audiobooks, 1 credit a month! I will gift the winner their choice of audiobook for 12 months, starting July 2015 and ending June of 2016. International peeps can compete for a $50.00 Giftcard/Papal cash.

The categories will be:

The winner of each category will be announce on June 30th of 2015 (winners of each category will get 10 entries), and will enter a Rafflecopter giveaway for 12 audible credits, which will be delivered at the date of their choosing during each month.

I Like to wish all a Happy Audiobook Month! 

To participate, listen to the clips and pick the audiobook the clip came from.

Behind the Scenes: Directing of Dramatized Audiobook

Posted by on Jun 24, 2015 in Miscellaneous | 0 comments

June is Audiobook Month. To celebrate, Penguin Random House Audio would like to share with you some behind the scenes video of the making of Louis L’Amour’s The Diamond of Jeru.

The Diamond of Jeru: The Story

Creating the audiobook

Directing an audio dramatization (shown below)

THE DIAMOND OF JERU is a full cast audio dramatization of a gritty adventure tale set in the jungles of Borneo during the 1950s. The story (about an American expat hired for a dangerous expedition to track down a rare gem) was discovered after 40 years in storage following L’Amour’s death, and the completed audio project has been a nearly 10-year labor of love for producer Beau L’Amour (Louis’s son). Hundreds of hours were spent collecting and recording authentic sound effects, and with original music and a 21-person cast, the result is a cinematic listening experience.

 

Happy Audiobook Month!
