The IWSG question of the month is, Have any of your books been made into audio books? If so, what is the main challenge in producing an audiobook?
Although audio books are growing more popular, I have not yet converted any of my books into audio books. I did have one of my short stories narrated for a podcast. That was truly awesome to hear my story read by a skilled narrator.
What's been your experience with audio books?
A quick update on my writing status.
I had big plans for the year, but I'm way behind on all my goals. Still editing a scifi. My brain says I should be focusing on fantasy because that's what I'm known for and it would be better to expand my fantasy back list, but this scifi story has been calling for quite some time. So I thought, why not? I need a little peace from all its shouting for my attention.
Also I've only read one book this year...that's terrible for both my sanity and my creativity. Got any good books you could recommend?

A big congrats to Alex for his long awaited new release.
Bassan’s father is stepping down from command. His best friend almost dies when Bassan freezes. Now, he’s being sent across the galaxy to speak at an important conference. Despite saving the eleven races years ago, he’s paralyzed by doubt. Could things get any worse?
Once there, new acquaintance Zendar convinces Bassan to visit his planet for a humanitarian mission. Bassan’s special connection to ancient technology is the key to saving Zendar’s people. One problem though—it’s a prison planet.
On Ugar, he discovers things aren’t so straightforward. As each truth reveals itself, the situation grows more desperate. If he can’t find the right answers, he might die along with Zendar’s people. Can Bassan summon the courage to be a hero again?
Tell me your happy news. I'd love to hear.
