  1. OMG! Fangirl squeee moment! I love that you used a Supernatural gif for your "waiting" image. Hee hee! Been watching it fast and furious with my daughter and it's pretty much all Supernatural all the time at my house.

    Er, *cough* um...putting on my mature hat of professionalism now...

    Thanks, Susie, for the shout-out :) I will definitely check out Lamb's work and who knows? Maybe we'll get them into audio yet!

  2. HeeHee I'm a huge Supernatural fangirl myself! And this was the best gif (without swearwords) to describe my face everytime I refresh the APA site!

    That would be great maybe if enough people get the word out on what they want in audio maybe some of the publishers will listen!

  3. I would LOVE to have Winston Graham's Poldark series on audio. Years ago some were recorded on tape but you can't even get those now. Also, Graham's book 'Marnie' -- another favorite of mine. :)

  4. Wow it is surprising those aren't on audio since if I'm not mistaken it was a TV show too (BBC?Masterpiece?)...I think those would be a great one for Simon Vance!

  5. Yes, it originally aired in the late '70's on Masterpiece Theater. I own the boxed set on DVD. Swoon! And I agree that Simon Vance would be a great choice for narrator. :)
