Are Audiobooks Still ‘Reading?’

Here’s Dan Thompson’s thought on audiobooks!

OK, let’s get the obvious out the way to begin with: I know you listen to an audiobook, but can you actually class it as reading? Let’s pick a book at random …. I don’t know, let’s pick Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Now let’s say you downloaded the audiobook and listened to it. Would you then say you have ‘READ’ the book if anyone asks?

“Hey, have you read Gone Girl yet? It is amazing!”

“Yes! I loved it!”

Hmmm, but did you read it?

It’s a tough one, because literally speaking, no, you don’t read an audiobook, you listen, ergo my opening sentence above.

Awhile ago I wrote a post called Yes, I work in a Supermarket. I have a lot of time on my hands as it were. For the majority of the time I work, the shop is closed. No customers! But I am on my…

I Hate My Voice

I’ve decided that I need to blog more this year. And when I say blog, I mean not just book promos for fellow authors. I’m a writer, I have fans (which actually sounds really strange). My fans, and real human beings want to know more about me, so this year, I’ll ramble on about what I like, my thoughts, my reactions. I welcome you all to comment and join in. Come and say hi, I won’t bite.

But this evening, I’ve decided to talk about something I don’t like. It’s something I feel holds me back – it stops me from doing things, creates anxious frustration when I’m offered the chance to take part in things. Most of us, and I’m sorry to be sexist, but statistics do show that it is mostly women – there are things that we simply don’t like about ourselves. You…

Here Lies Love – Our Flagship Title

 

Here Lies Love eBook

Would death be less painful than life?

When she is sold by her father, Abbey discovers that nightmares can occur when you’re awake. Trapped inside a wooden cage, Abbey is forced to listen to the horrors and atrocities above; time ticking down until it is her turn. But Abbey isn’t prepared to become a victim; she will escape.

Although, what Abbey isn’t prepared for, is how harsh and unfair the world can be. With the sun turning its back on humanity long ago, life gives no opportunity. The only thing Abbey can do is learn to survive. To exist. And that means stealing any opportunity that comes her way. Haunted by the unpleasant memories bestowed upon her only nurtures Abbey’s paranoia, until she realises that to truly live in the world, she must confront the person who was responsible for her misfortune – her father.

Here Lies Love is a New Adult tale of actuality, of facing up to the fact that love comes in many guises. Can Abbey find the one glimmer of hope or will she be overcome with the darkness of revenge?
