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.
Welcome to a new podcast for this week with an intriguing title. What do diets, destruction, and deductions have in common? They are all representative the wide range of audio books which have been released this year by Narration by George. Take a listen to samples from Slimmer (newly released), The Destined (saving-the-world action & adventure), and A Study in Scarlet (the classic Sherlock Holmes mystery).
Then decide! Decide which one of these books you would like to download FREE. Yes, I said FREE. No money. Just audio book heaven. Decide and then send me an e-mail or direct message on Facebook or Twitter and tell me which you’d like to have! I’ll send you instructions!
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 we are celebrating the privilege that I’ve had to voice 41 audiobooks in the last couple of years. If you’ve followed my Facebook or Twitter feeds, you’ll have seen a title: 41 Audiobooks in 41 Days. Each day of the week, I’m featuring a different audiobook – presented largely in alphabetical order. (There are variations for books that are part of a series or a holiday happening. )
In this podcast, I play excerpts from the books which have been featured in the past few days. This is something we’ll do until the 41 Audiobooks in 41 Days ends sometime in August. I hope you find something that will tickle your ears!!! Enjoy!
My wife and I met up with Sue Badeau outside Atlanta one Saturday afternoon. She graciously agreed to be interviewed about her work with adoptive and foster children and as a writer. We talked about her involvement in the Sweetland series from Helping Hands Press and I play some excerpts from the two books I have recorded for her. Summer in Sweetland: Never Too Old and Roots and Wings at Loonstone Lake: Call of the Loon. Thank you, “Dr.” Sue Badeau, for a wonderful Saturday afternoon and a fun interview.
Here are links to the books discussed in this interview:
This is the second week exploring the merger of audiobooks with spiritual ideas. While we may usually think of Bibles, books about the Bible, or devotionals containing spiritual ideas, there are other forms of writing which can be rich in spiritual ideas. In this episode, I take a look at two novels which explore spiritual ideas using the story of the birth of Jesus as their platform. Amber Shamel’s The Swaddling Clothes is a historical novel inspired by a Veggie Tales episode. Anne Baxter-Campbells Once Upon a Christmas Eve tells the story of a teenage who needs to learn a lesson or two. You’ll hear excerpts from both of these books.
