Sam Speaks

It’s here! The audio version of My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through is now available through Audible!

The audiobook formally dropped late last night and just gives you — the audience — another way to enjoy this first person, Christian themed fictional memoir of “just a free-willed suburban Jersey girl trying to figure out this journey called life.”

I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the efforts of Rebecca Benston, my publisher at Higher Ground Books & Media. Rebecca convinced me the audio platform was another venue on which I could share the message of the book.

She also was instrumental in bringing Kirsten Kopp on board for the narration. She did the legwork and screening; and kept her on track {and me in the loop}. I must say, it was a GREAT choice!

The book runs four hours and 31 minutes. The book has a list price of $14.95. Member price is $10.46 or one credit. It is downloadable at Audible.

Kirsten is a graduate of the ACX Master Class, a program approved by Audible to assist narrators. To date, graduates of the class have produced more than
3,244 audiobooks. This venture is Kirsten’s seventh narration for Audible released projects. She lives outside Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Kirsten has been involved in the arts “from the Elementary School Nativity play through stage plays in high school, community theatre and church dramas … I’ve loved spending time ‘on the boards’.  As an adult, voice over is allowing me to continue this adventure in new and interesting ways.”

She also loved doing the project. She said she really enjoyed reading My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through and really put her heart into it. “I absolutely LOVED narrating your book. I cried, I laughed, it was such a sweet, endearing story of a life well lived with all the ups and downs one would expect. I loved Sam’s vulnerable strength, and could relate to her on many levels. It was truly a labour of love!”
