Heard any good books lately?



I just googled my book title (shut up) and was happy to discover that my audio publisher, Brilliance, has a sample on their site. This was the first time I got to hear any of it, and I can tell even from this small clip that Lisa Kudrow does an amazing job. I'm so grateful! Here's a link:
Listen to Lisa Kudrow reading from Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA.

Oh my god, this is surreal! It sounds great, Ellen. I'm so psyched for you!

(And I just saw the Seinfeld episode last night where Elaine is accused of using too many exclamation points but who cares, exclamation points are in order here!)

THAT is so cool!!! Oh my god! How did you feel listening to that? I was completely caught up. Lisa Kudrow is the perfect reader.

Ellen said...

Thanks, Rob!!!!!!!!! (Great thing about exclamation points--I never run out of them!)

Myf, it made me want to hear more! And yes, I'm SO THRILLED that Lisa Kudrow is the reader. I can't think of anyone better.

That's so cool! And is it really unabridged?

Katie said...

Youpi!!! That's so excellent!!

Ellen said...

Sue,they offer an abridged version and an unabridged version. Can you guess which one I prefer? ;)

Thanks, Katie!

Shrieks and Claps! It's fabulous! Is the novel the abridged or unabridged version? Did they cut sections for the abridged, or just tighten the language?

Ellen said...

Thanks, Kristy! For the abridged version, they really didn't touch the language. They cut out entire scenes and sections of scenes. I'm glad they didn't make me do the cutting, because that would have been rough!

Okay, how amazingly cool is that, Ellen? Congratulations! And Lisa must be quite a gal - seems to have been onboard with the book from the start. So huge...so exciting. I'm just thrilled for you.

Happy Hugs from CT,
Fran

It sounds terrific, Ellen, LK's reading on the clip is beautiful. Congratulations! I can't imagine how thrilled you must feel.
