The Heat Is On

Got some fun news. As well as all the usual places you can pick up my August Blaze, The Heat Is On, it will also be available on tape.

You’ll be able to download it from Audible or iTunes and listen to it. This is a first for me, and as someone who LOVES to listen to books on my iPod, very exciting.

Except I already know the ending of this one …

Don’t worry, I won’t tell.

Want a little advanced tease? Ask and you shall receive:

  1. Love the excerpt. Sounds like a fun one.

    I haven’t listened to many books on tape yet. I tried one a while back, but found I have more trouble concentrating on the story listening instead of reading. Maybe I’m more visual, or maybe it was the fact that it was a heavy Stephen Lawhead King Arthur tome I was trying to get into.

    I did just buy a few books on cd from the Robin Hood tv series. Couldn’t resist my favorite show and read by a couple of the stars. Of course, I may go all gooey listening to those voices and not catch a bit of the plot, lol.

  2. We listen to kids books on road trips since I refuse to give in and buy a portable DVD player. Yes I am that mean. We have listened to the Harry Potter series and the Narnia series so far. I haven’t listened to adult books yet. I listen to NPR while I do the dishes and go for walks. It gives me a chance to catch up on the news and as bonus the kids hate it so they tend to stay out of the kitchen so I can have a moment of peace.

  3. I have a commute, so I love listening to audio books. I’m devouring the Sookie Stackhouse books now.

  4. Love the excerpt. Can’t wait to read it.

    I listen to audio books all the time. Tami Hoag and Linda Howard are favs. Sometimes listening to the dj’s on the radio gets on my nerves.

  5. When I was 19, I worked a data entry job, and I loved listenig to audio books. Now, I’m too distracted to get into them. Even in the car. But I think they are a really great thing ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Agree with the others so far…love the excerpt and can’t wait to read. And by read…I mean read. I can’t stand books on tape. I can’t get into them. Nor can I get into the e-readers. I’m on my laptop most of the day for work so the last thing I want to do is stare at another screen when I read for fun. I may change my mind on the e-reader, but for some reason I can’t get into the audio book concept.

  7. I’m buying the print edition (as an ebook). I’ve never listened to an audio book. My ebook reader has that option and I’ve never used it partly because I remember things better by reading and writing than by listening. I took copious notes in all my college lectures or I’d forget all of it.

    So glad that your books will be on audio–it makes them available to people who, for one reason or another, can’t or won’t read print.

    Um … do you think the narrator blushed when reading and recording the steamy bits? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. I cannot listen to books on tape as I have a tendency to “go there” and that does not work well when my entire being is hanging out with say…Zane McKenzie in some desert somewhere..haha and then the light turns RED!! I have to do my reading the old fashion way…comfy couch…cup of tea…pretzels…haha

  9. I’m a huge audio book junkie! I listen to them in the car on long trips, while I do housework, while I workout… The Stephanie Plum audio books are a favorite of mine as well. They’re SO FUNNY! Both readers do such a great job with the different voices and accents. I like the Harry Potter on audio. So great! But, one of my favorite readers is Anna Fields who read all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips books. She was phenomenal! The world lost a true talent when she died.

  10. I’m a ipod junkie…I’ve all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips (i agree with Tori Anna Fields was a great reader, her last book wasn’t the same), some Nora Roberts, all JD Robb, all Charlaine Harris and some Susan Mallery

  11. I will have to try this on my iPhone. Currently listen on way to work. Robb/Robberts(BrideS), Laurens on my list right now.

  12. I’ve never listened to an audio book, I would rather read them. And with a 5 yo in the house I can’t have my ears plugged, gotta listen out for the little terror! lol
    And no fair on the excerpt, you posted that one way back on a what I’m working on blog, you gotta give us another sneak, Pretty Please!!!!! Can’t wait for August, this is gonna be another good one!

  13. Love, love, love my audiobooks. I’ve got almost all the J.D. Robb books, some Sherrilyn Kenyon, the Twilight Series, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, etc. I usually read the book first and then listen to the audiobook. I’m so excited that you’ll finally have an audiobook!
    Does an author have any say on who reads the audiobook? Just wondering because Susan Ericksen does a great job with the “In Death” books, but I can’t imagine J.R. Ward approving of the man that reads “Lover Avenged.” Thankfully, I got that book from the library and didn’t pay money for it. It was like he was reading the news.

  14. I have always been curious about books on tape. Honestly though, I can’t imagine listening to some of the books I read on tape LOL.

    Even funny Julie James – Something About You: The beginning scene in the hotel where her amorous neighbors are banging away against the wall.

  15. An August book, yea! I can buy it for my birthday!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the excerpt. Congrats on a book being on tape for those that love them. I’ve never listened to a book. Just can’t imagine as I love reading a book. On long drives I like listening to music if I listened to a book I might get involved & forget my exit or something!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. I love to listen to J.D. Robb –love the narration. Also, Jennifer Crusie — two favorites “Bet Me” and “Welcome to Temptation” I listen to over and over.

  17. Thanks for the tease, I’m looking forward to reading the book.

    I listen to audio books all the time and I’ve put together a great library of them as well as regular books. I have a decent comute everyday so I plug them into my iPod and listen the car.

    Some of my favorites are the Karen Marie Moning Highlander books, the guy who reads them has the sexiest voice ever. The guy who reads the Harry Potter books is excellent as well. I’ve also listend to books by Laurell K. Hamilton, Karen Chance, JR Ward, Charlaine Harris, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, Stephenie Meyers, Richelle Mead, Janet Evanovich, and more. Yes, I’m addicted.

  18. I like the excerpt, can’t wait for August. I’m old fashioned, gotta have my book, I get so engrossed in what I’m reading, I actually don’t noticed what’s going on around me(fire dept showed up, lights flashing, sirens screaming not twenty feet from my house and didn’t notice a thing.) I’d probably end up hundreds of miles from (or run out of gas) before I knew what was happening!

  19. I have the first 5 Harry Potter books on my iPod but i also have biographies of Anderson Cooper, Anthony Bourdain, Shannon Tweed, Gene Simmons, Gordon Ramsay and Ellen DeGeneres on there.

    I tend to listen to Anthony Bourdain’s at night. I love the way he reads it. Lots of expression in his voice ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. I listen to all the Harry Potter books on my ipod. At one time I could listen to cds in my car, but my cd player is totally messed up so I can’t listen to books in the car any more.
