Audiobook Lovin’ Presents: An interview with Rebecca Zanetti

2017 Audio Book Lovin Banner UPDATED

Viviana, Enchantress of Books and I, Books-n-Kisses have the wonderful Rebecca Zanetti on the blog today. 

Rebecca Zanetti is the author of over thirty romantic suspense, dark paranormal, and contemporary romances, and her books have appeared multiple times on the New York Times, USA Today, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iBook bestseller lists.  She lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her own Alpha hero, two kids, a couple of dogs, a crazy cat…and a huge extended family.  She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working her butt off…and she thinks one of the best things about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is that she can let the crazy out.

Hi Rebecca we are so excited to have you here with us today!!! 

Thanks so much for having me over, ladies!  It’s always nice to see you guys!

Q: Rebecca, for those of our followers that don’t know you. Can you please tell us a little about yourself.

Sure.  I live in the PAC NW, have a husband, a couple of teenagers, and a few animals.  I write dark paranormals, contemporary romances, and romantic suspense books, and I’m just learning how to play mah jongg.

Q:  In the three years we’ve been hosting Audiobook Lovin, we’ve discussed the process of selecting a narrator with both authors and narrators. We’ve discovered instances where authors were heavily involved in the process or provide ideas of what they wanted and those that some were 100%  involvement in the selection of the narrator. On the opposite side, there have been authors were not part of the process at all. What was your level of involvement with your books being formated to audio books? (NOTE: please include details from providing suggestions of who you’d like to have as a narrator, to the casting options provided to final selection.)

I’ve done both, actually.  There have been times when I haven’t been involved at all, and recently I hired my own narrators to narrate the Scorpius Syndrome books and the Maverick Montana books.  It was a lot of fun. The auditions were exciting to go through, and I think I found awesome narrators.  I chose Michael Pauley for the Scorpius Syndrome books and Stella Bloom for the Maverick Montana series.

Q; Can you please us do you listen to your own audiobooks? If yes/no why?  I tend to get all caught up in the plot and what I would change when I try to listen to my own books.  There’s always something…

Q: If someone one who is new to audiobooks was to ask “why do people listen to audiobooks” how would you answer this?  We live in a multi-tasking type of world.  I know a lot of people who commute to work, and they listen in the car.  I also have a friend who does accounting, and she listens to books all day.

Q: Can you tell us what you are currently working on? Any secret projects you can share?

I just finished editing Twisted Truths, which is the third book in the Blood Brother series.  Now I’m starting to write Storm Gathering, which the fourth Scorpius Syndrome book.  I do have a secret project but can’t announce yet…

Q: If you could pick one person to narrator your life who would it be and why?  Bridget Jones, because she’d capture it perfectly.

Q: How about a quick speed round… ready?  Sure!

Coffee or Tea?  Tea

Taco or Burger?  Burger

Summer or Winter?  Winter

Football or Baseball?  Football

Mountain or Beach?  Mountain

Milk or Dark Chocolate?  Milk chocolate

Vegas or Reno?  Vegas.  Definitely Vegas.  :)

    The answer to “why do people listen to audiobooks” is me. I have an hour commute and I work in accounting, too! 😉
