Not-So-Straight-Sue-300x200Listening to books. It seemed strange to me at first. After all, the voice of a narrator can’t compare to the voice in your head as you curl up in silence with a good book. I’m still not on board with audiobooks (although they’re tempting me more and more), however I do love book clips read by the author.

It’s great (and sometimes unexpected) to hear what an author sounds like. The voice that produced the stories I love. Different accents, different intonations, faster, slower, the smile in an author’s voice or the sombre cadence as they read something more weighty.  I very much enjoy these, and have often gone on to buy the book after hearing the clip.

If you know lesfic, you doubtless know The Lesbian Review.  I often check out their reviews and top ten lists when I’m pondering what to read next.  And their podcast, the Lesbian Review Talk Show, has the book clips segment that I love to listen to.

Now, if you’re so inclined, you can once again hear my strange mix of accents reading from my novel, Not-So-Straight Sue.   The romance, set in outback Australia, has an American character, but don’t worry, I don’t attempt a Texan accent! You’ll have to listen to my blend of Aussie, with a bit of Brit,  reading a very Australian story about an Australian lawyer and a Texan doctor.

Please do check it out at The Lesbian Talk Show. I hope you enjoy it.
