Awesome news. AudioFile reviewed White Hot and gave it their coveted Earphones Award.
Narrator Renee Raudman enchants listeners with this unforgettable duo. She nails Nevada’s plainspoken manner and resigned humor and captures her empathy for the vulnerable as it evolves into a steely determination for justice. When Connor uses the voice the author calls his “dragon voice,” Raudman’s delivery expresses sexy Southern charm. Memorable secondary voices, like the jovially psychopathic ice mage and Nevada’s matrimonially pushy grandmother, make the dialogue sparkle.
AudioFile, White Hot review.
In other words, Renee Raudman once again brought the story to life in a remarkable way. She is truly amazing and we’re very grateful to work with her. And – bonus! – I have a special message from her.
Hi Ilona and Gordon!
First, Burn For Me was nominated for an Audie (2015) and now I’ve just heard that White Hot has won an Audiofile Earphones (2017) award! This is very exciting news. It was a blast narrating White Hot. Both my engineer and I were either on the edge of our seats, choked-up or laughing throughout the entire recording process. Your writing (as always) is second to none. (We also felt the same way about Wildfire and are very excited about its upcoming release).
It’s hard to believe we’ve been partnering together for almost 9 years. (November 2008). Thank you for allowing me to bring your babies to life. Also! Please let your fans know how incredibly touched I am for their years of listening and support. They make all the hard work completely worth while, and will never know how much it has meant to me. I love reading all their comments and seeing the enthusiasm they have for each one of your titles. Just like them, I’m always excited (and a little nervous!!!!) to see what you’ll come up with.
There you have it. If you would like to leave any comments for Renee, I know she would really appreciate it.
