(The oddest thing happened this week. I posted a blog about my audiobook and it disappeared from my blog. I'm reposting. With apologies to those of you who may see it twice. I hope this one stays up...)
I'm excited to announce that the audiobook for MAKING FRIENDS WITH BILLY WONG is now available. You can download it on Audible, HERE.
fabulous folks at Scholastic Audiobooks, especially Paul Gagne, worked
very hard to get Billy's voice right. Although it was hard to describe
what I thought a Chinese American boy in the south sounded like in the
1950s, I think we nailed it. I say "we" very loosely. Though I did get
to read the Author Note and the Acknowledgements, I wisely left the rest to the experts.
From the first time I heard her reading, I knew Kate Simses was Azalea. She's such a pro.
It's strange hearing your words read by someone else.
But it's lovely when they're so beautifully said.
