I have provided the first six chapters – both written and in MP3 format on my website. I have heard back from followers that when listening to the MP3 and then reading along, the book takes on a whole new aspect. The audiobook is unabridged, which means that the reading is word for word from the book…it is a treat to hear the different characters speak or to hear the emotion during the dialog. Try it and let me know what you think. See my link below.
Question to ask: How long is your audiobook? 13 hrs and 31 minutes.
I would encourage everyone to check out the sample on the books Amazon page. Even if you are not a sci-fi fan, LYCCYX has something for you. There is action, adventure, romance, political intrigue, environmental themes and much more.

With Wings of Shadow, it would only cost $1.99 to add on the audiobook. Readers can then switch between the two versions without the hassle of searching for the right spot. I love this option! Whispersync allows readers to workout, do dishes or drive to work, without having to put their books down.
Wings of Shadow is also available on I-tunes and Audible.
This is a very emotional book, and I am happy to say that comes across in the audio version. I was lucky to work with a narrator who put so much of himself into the production of the book. It’s not just that he has an excellent voice, but that he cared so much about getting every detail of the production right.
As an author, it was odd to hear my story – my life, really – coming out of a speaker in someone else’s voice. I forgot about that in the first ten minutes I was listening, though, and just enjoyed the great storytelling Jeff Conwell did.
