And now, please welcome Jessica for an Interview about Audiobooks and New Adult:

Are you a fan of audiobooks yourself? If so where do you listen most?

I love audiobooks! The two places I listen to them the most are in the car and while I’m working out.

 What was the best part of hearing your characters portrayed aloud?

For me listening to books on audio is almost like watching a movie but without the visual part of it and I think that adds more dimensions to the characters.

For fans of yours who already love your characters, including Callie and Kayden, would you say listening is a good way to re-experience your books?

I do think it is a good way for readers to re-experience my books because I think hearing an actually voice read and portray a character they love adds a little more to the story.

Do you anticipate the popularity of audiobooks continuing to grow in tandem with the rise of the New Adult genre? It seems like a perfect medium (along with ebooks) for people who might not want to share their steamier reads — what do you think? 

I know a lot of my New Adult fans want to listen to the audio as well, and some fans just listen to the audio, so I do think as the popularity of the audio will rise with the genre.

What do you think of Leslie Bellair as a narrator?

I think she did a great job! I was actually surprised at how well the voice matched to what I would imagine Callie’s voice sounding like.

The Coincidence Of Callie And Kayden

The Coincidence Of Callie And Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

Book I 

Find the Book: goodreads | amazon | audible

There are those who don’t get luck handed to them on a shiny platter, who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, who don’t get saved.

Luck was not on Callie’s side the day of her twelfth birthday when everything was stolen from her. After it’s all over, she locks up her feelings and vows never to tell anyone what happened. Six years later her painful past consumes her life and most days it’s a struggle just to breathe.

For as long as Kayden can remember, suffering in silence was the only way to survive life. As long as he did what he was told, everything was okay. One night, after making a terrible mistake, it seems like his life might be over. Luck was on his side, though, when Callie coincidentally is in the right place at the right time and saves him.

Now he can’t stop thinking about the girl he saw at school, but never really knew. When he ends up at the same college as Callie, he does everything he can to try to get to know her. But Callie is reserved and closed off. The more he tries to be part of her life, the more he realizes Callie might need to be saved.

Author Bio taken from Authors webpage!

I’m the author of the Fallen Star Series, the Darkness Falls Series, the Death Collectors Series, and the New York Times and USA Today Best Seller, The Secret of Ella and Micha, a New Adult Contemporary novel.

I love writing and reading almost anything that is YA. Some of my favorite authors are Cassandra Clare, Sarah Dessen, Becca Fitzpatrick, Abbi Glines, Tammara Webber, Jamie McGuire and Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’m also an avid watcher of TV series The Vampire Diaries and of Modern Family.
I absolutely love music. When I’m writing, 9 out of 10 times I have music blaring in the background. My list of favorite songs could go on and on, since I have a very broad taste in music. But a few of my favorite bands are Chevelle, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Brand New, Death Cab for Cutie, Flight 409, Nirvana, and I’m going to stop there or else I’ll keep going on forever.
I don’t really have any favorite movies, but a few that I could watch over and over again are Anywhere but Here, Juno, Pride and Prejudice, The Hangover, and Bad Teacher.

    I love listening to a book but i still prefer to read it because i can get into it more and i can actually picture all the sounds and actions of the characters. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  2. I was already excited about this giveaway but than i listen and now even more! I want to read it so bad!
    Thanks for this giveaway!!<2 Good luck to everyone:)

  3. I love audio books! If I really love a book I always buy the audio version too and if I really like an audio I’ll always buy the paperback 🙂 Audio books just really help you get more involved in the story and bring you closer to the protagonist!

    I love there two books. I have both of these ebooks but they are two that I need in paperback. I love all of Jessica’s books.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  5. Andrea Diaz

    I have actually already read this book and am waiting for the sequel to fall into my hands. I really want a physical copy of this, it was absolutely amazing. Alot of people assume New Adult is just a watered down version of Erotica but it’s definitely not true.

    I cant really follow with audiobooks..Its hard for me to hear/make out certain words when im listening.. I also have a mild hearing loss.. I still yet havent read a new adult book yet.. I should actually be soon! thanks for the giveaway!!

  7. I am doing more and more audiobooks these days because it is an extra way to squeeze in more books. I listen to them while I work out, while I drive and while I am cleaning house. Makes the tasks more pleasant. I am enjoying the rise in audios.

  8. HILLARY REYNA

    Of course I’m excited about NA! 😀 I think romance is the best and most magical thing, but audio books are still something I’m not used to and probably won’t be anytime soon :p But thanks for the giveaway! And I love that cover! 🙂

  9. Vivien

    I absolutely love audiobooks. They can really add a whole new element to a novel. This sounds like a great addition to the NA genre.

  10. Victoria Zumbrum

    I love audio books. I would love to read this book. It sounds really good. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. Kai W.

    I love listening to audio books when I’m trapped in traffic. This is the only time I could catch up on books especially sitting in traffic. Being stuck in traffic does eat up my productive time.

  12. Christine

    I love a lot of NA books now, but I can’t get into audiobooks. I wish I could, but if I listen to something without reading or watching, I don’t retain anything, so it’s pointless for me! lol 🙂

  13. Chris Bails

    I love audiobooks. I drive 1/2 to & from work, so listening to something else other than music all the time. I also am loving the New Adult genre. I have also heard great things about this series and definitely want to read. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  14. I am excited about this book. I love reading romance novels every now and then. Though I am not really into audiobooks because I prefer reading over listening to them.

  15. Crystal Guidroz

    I have not “read” or listened to any audio books. I do a Kindle with a speech to text option for certain books that have that ability. I have tried it a few time and it is okay. I prefer to read at my own pace, re-reading specific parts, flipping back to check something out, highlighting passages, etc… I guess it really is a personal thing. Thanks for the giveaway!
