The Girl from Simon's Bay - on audio!
Fancy listening to my new book?
Well, now you can because the audiobook of The Girl from Simon's Bay is out! Published by Rosa Audio, it can be found at online bookshops for download to your phone, tablet etc.
Narrated by the wonderfully-named Chipo Chung, it runs for 10 hours and 33 minutes from start to finish.
Enough time to see you through a long trip or a week's worth of commuting?
Audiobooks are becoming more and more popular as an option for those who want to "read" but don't want to take along a physical book or swipe pages on a tablet. Your phone becomes the book. Just download the title of your choice, hook up your headset, lean back and listen. These days, when I see someone immersed in what's being played into their ears, it's very often not music - but books. The written word made audible. And this segment of the publishing industry is growing faster than e-books. With a market valued at $3.5 billion and impressive year on year growth, audiobooks are changing the way we read.
And... did you know that you can switch between reading the Kindle e-book and listening to the audiobook? Or do both?
How clever is that!
