What did we do in 2016? What’s coming for 2017? That’s the subject this week as we look back and look forward. I play samples from some of 2016’s audio book releases. And I summarize our schedule for the coming year. It’s a full one! Join me for the review and the preview.
Our look into tales of other worlds – even just altered earths – continues today with an in-depth look at The Destined. This is a tale of evil powers which arise every 700 years or so and threaten earth. To counter this threat, others are imbued with gifts to fight this evil and set things right again. This story tells the story of a High School Teacher and a few teens who have been imbued with this power. The question is, will they know how to use it to save the planet from total annihilation. It’s a such a fast moving action-adventure-other worldly tale that it’s hard to stop listening.
Have you ever felt like you were “destined” to do something special? Today, you get to meet six people who are just that – The Destined. My latest audio book tells the story of these six young people. Meet Dega who can heal and read minds. There’s Dru who sports an attitude and is proficient with fire. Eric and Barrett are buddies who can control water and electricity. Kandi and Aimee control wind and earth. They all must learn to work together to combat an evil which is seeking to destroy and then dominate the whole earth. Can they do it? How will they do it? The story of The Destined is exciting, action-packed, and fast paced. And it’s approved for the whole family.
This week’s Audio Book of the Week is a great murder mystery full of satire and commentary about matters involving the way we Christians do “church”. How do murder and church go together? Check out Becky Wooley’s clerical crime novel, Non-Prophet Murders.It’s a great listen which we sample in this podcast.
Last week, I announced that two new books were in production. This week, I have samples for you to hear from each of the books.
The very first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlett, is the first time Dr. Watson & Holmes work together. Today’s sample is from the first meeting between Watson & Holmes.
The Destined is the first novel for authors Glenn Eidson and Brent Hurst. Six people – five teens and their teacher – are endowed with special powers to become The Destined: those with the responsibility to save the world from some really bad stuff! In today’s sample, we see how one learned of his special endowment.
This week’s podcast looks at the next two releases from Narration by George and looks back to a still-exciting-to-listen-to release from 2014.
A Study in Scarlett is the first of the Sherlock Holmes novels by Arthur Conan Doyle. Production has begun on this novel with release expected in March.
The Destined is a new novel from two new authors, Glenn Eidson and Brent Hurst. This young adult release is exciting for any age and will be an exciting listen.
Seasons of Change is an exciting listening experience. The United States Government has collapsed. Mobs and gangs are trying to remake the eastern part of the country into their turf. Ordinary citizens are just trying to stay low and not be enslaved. Michael is one of those just trying to be unnoticed. Until…. You have to read the book to find the rest of the story!
