Can you hear it?

I have frequently been asked if any of my books are available in audio books (usually tapes) - at his time they are not available as audio tapes. However all of my novels are available in various eBook formats including .PDF and KINDLE.

What, you ask, does an eBook have to do with audio?

Many of the more recent versions of Adobe Acrobat offer "Text to Voice" or "Read Aloud" options and you can use this program on your desktop or laptop to read .PDF files. Follow this link for Adobe Reader 9 if you don't already have it on your computer. (it's a FREE download)
Also since each of my novels is available for Kindle, I am pleased to announce that EACH book has been Text-to-Speech: Enabled for Second Generation Kindle and Kindle DX devices.

Can you tell I'm excited?
I am, I am!

Where can you find these formats for your friendly "computer-man" to read to you?

...and for a variety of eBook formats with INSTANT download,
