How they come to be, my process, why they take so much longer than other editions. Picking a narrator? Can’t Moira do them all?

Want a whole lot more info about audio.

Here’s a sample of Emma’s narration:

Emma Newman my narrator is ALSO an author herself. She’s great AND she narrates her own books.

    Fluffy fantasy recommendation: The Dragon series by Patricia Wrede is cis, but turns the fairy tale tropes inside out; they’re witty and very funny. Those books are to fantasy as Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is to SciFi. Tales from Verania series by T. J. Klune is LGBT, and very funny also, and has dragons.
