Listen up!



There's going to be an audio book of Orange Mint and Honey!

Don't know who will read it - Angela Bassett are you out there?! - but it will be out April 1st.

This is one of the best things about getting published--random bits of unexpected joy.

Exactly! My editor just sent me a box of FREE books. It doesn't get better than that.

Congratulations on your wonderful news.

Carleen Brice said...

Thanks my friends!

Ello said...

Oh that is so cool! Angela Bassett would be awesome! But I guess there are specific voice talents out there who do this for a living, right? How cool is that? Congratulations!

Carleen Brice said...

Awesome is definitely the word that comes to mind when one thinks of Angela Bassett. For many reasons! But yes, it'll probably be someone who does this for a living, and, therefore, I'm sure will do a wonderful job. I can't believe that one day I'll hear someone read my story to me! Such a strange and cool idea!

What wonderful news! You will soon be able to hear yourself tell a story!! Just think how many more people you will reach this way!

Rebecca Burgess said...

You must be ecstatic.

God, I could list to Angela Bassett read the phone book.

Carleen Brice said...

i'm here, just grinning with you.

"random bits of unexpected joy." the best kind! :)

Carleen Brice said...

Grins to you Olufunke!

Hey Carleen, this is terrific! Congrats!

It's true, these kinds of unanticipated events are exactly what you say, "unexpected joy."

I'll be on audio, too--and haven't the slightest idea who will narrate, or who'd I'd choose for the job. John Elder Robison did his own (a memoir, so that's fitting).

But I want Kate Winslet to play my protagonist in the movie version, if ever there is one!
