Viviana, from Enchantress of Books and I am so excited to have Donna Grant on our Audio Book Lovin’ Series.
Donna Grant is the New York Timesand USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae.
She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.
Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.
I had the great pleasure of meeting Ms. Grant at RT in Dallas this past May. She is just as amazing and sweetas she seems online. Oh and she is like a steel trap trying to get spoilers out of her. No she would not tell me anything about Rhi. *shakes head and mumbles* Evil authors…..
Kelly: Hi Donna, Viviana and I are so excited to have you be a part of our Audio Book Lovin’ Series.
Thanks so much for having me, girls! It’s always a pleasure! 😉
Kelly: Donna, what do you love/like about audio books?
I like that it’s another way for readers to be able to get my books. Whether they prefer audio or can only get their book fix while listening to an audio on the way to work, I’m thrilled there is that option out there.
Kelly: Tell us what involvement do you have in getting your novels turned into audiobooks?
I have very minimal involvement. My publisher takes care of getting them made into audio.
Kelly: How is your narrator selected for your novels?
I wish I knew. Lol. Most of my series are read by a male narrator. However my Dark Warrior series was read by a female. I don’t know who decided to change that or why.
Kelly: What information/guidance do you provide to the narrator?
Oddly enough, the male narrator never asked me about how to pronounce anything, but the female did. She made sure to have everything just as intended. The male has messed up a few things that I didn’t catch until just recently, and they’re having to be corrected now. It would’ve been so much easier had he gotten with me as well.
Kelly: Do you listen to your audiobooks after they are finished? Why or why not.
I tried once, but I couldn’t get into the first five minutes. I hear the story differently in my head than how the narrators do it, so it’s difficult for me. Lol. It’s why I didn’t catch those mistakes I mentioned above until recently. And I only caught those because I listened to a sample.
Kelly: If you could pick one person (male or female) to narrator your life who would it be and why?
Hmmmm. Either Sam Heughan or Luke Evans or Benedict Cumberbach would do nicely. J
Kelly: For anyone who has not listened to an audiobook before. What would you tell them to try to convince them to listen?
Oh, that’s easy. Anything written by Karen Marie Moning and read by Phil Gigante!!
