The year is almost over and the TBR always seems so daunting because we never truly get to everything we wanted to every month (or year). I know that with getting ready for the holidays, or even just the end of the year, it can be so much easier to listen to audiobooks or podcasts for some people. I still can’t completely focus on them, but I’m hoping I can work towards fixing that in 2023.
We have another scripted fiction podcast out from Emerald Audio, and it is available now on Apple Podcasts or any major listening platform.
Last month, legendary storyteller Jane Green released RAINBOW GIRL, an immersive scripted fiction podcast (just like radio plays or audio dramas), via her new company Emerald Audio. On December 8 international bestselling author Jenna Blum will debut her eight-part audio experience, THE KEY OF LOVE. This sweeping historical romance from the acclaimed author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family, showcases one woman’s fierce love, and burning ambition, as she has to make an impossible decision when the fate of the world is up for grabs. Compositions and songs created by Broadway musicians accompany this enchanting story.
