Time progressed on and so did technology. We moved into the world of television. In homes across the United States families now gathered.
We no longer had to use our imagination. A new system to thrill this generation with visual stimulation. In time lives once again became busy, rushed. We now could once again listen to stories with cassette tape and players, then progressed to books on discs. These were new and interesting but not practical with the continuing active life styles of the next generation. Enter books you download on your phone or I-pad. A person can literally carry thousands of books and audible books at their finger tip.
Authors have the ability to touch readers in their preferred way, physical, e-book or audible. It is an interesting process to turn a book into audible. Authors basically are allowed to shop for that special voice that will bring their book to life. I was very lucky to have signed Edward E. French as the voice of Archidamus. His voice brings every character alive. He stepped above and included French and Gaelic conversations in the recording.

For all Audible lovers this is one you will want to add to your books!
I must thank Professor Sean Dwyer for his assistance on the Gaelic and French pronunciations. He worked with Ed French to see all was correct. Sean speaks eleven languages.
The future will be exciting with all possibilities for authors and readers.
Imagine the ability as a reader to choose a person to read the book you purchased via hologram. It's possible, just remember, who ever thought you would be able to read or listen to a book on your phone.
Open your mind, read or listen to a book. Travel to a time and place you have never been. Encourage your children to read, share a book with your friends. On those nights curl up with something good to drink and go on an adventure!
I love an adventure, to travel and discovering new places.
