As of next week, Listen Up will be folding into Publishers Weekly’s official blog, PWxyz, in an effort to mainstream content and increase overall blog traffic.
“But what about all my audiobook news needs?” you ask. Fear not, audio enthusiasts.
We’ll still have you covered — with Q&As, news, reviews, contests, bestseller info, and a whole lot more. It’ll just be in a different place — and, because of the new location, our posts will be read by a much wider audience.
So, if you’re an audiobook fan, check us out at PWxyz. And If you’re an audio publisher, feel free to pitch me stories as per usual.
Thanks everyone. We’ll see you next week, albeit in a slightly different location.
Another week, another new #1. This week it’s Clive Cussler and Justin Scott’s The Striker: An Isaac Bell Adventure (narrated by Scott Brick for Penguin Audio) grabbing the top spot on PW’s audio bestseller list.
Coming in at #2 is James Patterson’s Alex Cross, Run, which is narrated by Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer for Hachette Audio. At #3 is Heart of Texas, Volume 1: Lonesome Cowboy and Texas Two-Step (Brilliance Audio) written by Debbie Macomber and narrated by Natalie Ross.
“Armistead Maupin is a hero of mine. He manages to be eloquent and witty but never shies away from pain and loss. Reading this audiobook was not only something fun and challenging to do (the bobbing back and forth between continents from an accent point of view was certainly both!) but also a way to reconnect with the spirit of Armistead. And true to form, it was as fun and trippy and soulful as the man himself.”
Check out the following audio excerpts from each of the forthcoming Maupin audiobooks:
