Almost Like Having Your Cake and Eating it Too

Almost Like Having Your Cake and Eating it Too


As recently as a month ago, I would never have imagined I’d be writing about audiobooks again this soon. However, with news as amazing as this, how can I help but share it on every venue available to me.

In early May, Audible announced a new promotional tool which helps audiobook rights holders get the word out about their stories, attract new listeners, and ideally garner more reviews.

I subsequently set a goal to give away one thousand audiobooks in May. The good news is I have already given away several hundred audiobooks. In other news, I have a long way to go to reach my target.

It’s understandable. A lot of Jane Austen fan fiction (JAFF) lovers have yet to embrace audiobooks, preferring instead to read eBooks and paperbacks. I asked myself what if JAFF lovers could have their cake and eat it too? What if I offered readers who are still on the fence about giving audiobooks a try a limited-time-only offer to receive a P. O. Dixon eBook of their choice (box sets excluded) after they have requested and claimed one of my audiobooks?

Interested? If yes, have a look at my list of eligible audiobooks up for grabs by visiting my Audible page.

In addition, decide which P. O. Dixon eBook you’d like, keeping in mind that box sets and book bundles are excluded. Email me at, listing both the audiobook and eBook of your choice.

Once you have claimed the audiobook and its status is updated accordingly, your requested eBook will be sent to you shortly afterward.

It’s as easy as that! A complimentary eBook just for giving audiobooks a try. This offer is good while eligible audiobook promo codes are available. Did I mention I have a lot of codes? Email me today!

This limited-time-only offer ends on Saturday, June 8, 2019.

  1. That’s a very generous offer, Pam. I’ll be sure to check your Audible page and see which book I would like to listen. Thank you very much.

  2. I have enjoyed two other audio books of yours and would love to hear Only a Heartbeat Away or Still a Young Man. Thank you for your generous offer.

  3. I’ve never done anything with audible, but think I would like to try. I too, have problems with my eyes and audible may be a sensible solution. Thank you for the opportunities presented above.

    • You’re welcome. I hope you will give Audible a try. I hope my audiobooks will be among your favorites. Awarding and claiming free audiobooks has never been easier. Email me. 🙂

  4. I find that I am moving more toward audio books, since I am on the go so much! Hope you reach your goal!

  5. Thank you for the offer, but my mind wanders when I listen to stuff, so prefer to read. I did join your mailing list tho’!

  6. I requested an audio book from you, but the link never worked for me so I gave up and unregistered for Audible. I’m more a reader than a listener anyway; audio books put me to sleep. However I heard an audio snippet you posted from one of your books, and I can strongly recommend the quality as exceptional.

  7. I love how business-savvy you are; that isn’t always the case for writers! I edit for several and help with publicity for a couple, so I work with writers a lot…besides teaching online writing classes to tweens and teens, including Fan Fiction, so I am quite involved in the writing and publicity and business-side of writing and publishing. I love all of your splendid ideas!!

    I am not an auditory learner, so I tend to only listen to audiobooks if I have read the book before (Harry Potter, Beowulf<.i> (read by Seamus Heaney, of course! Pure magic!), classics, etc.). I tried listening to a wonderful audiobook I won from a JAFF author, and it just didn’t register with me.

    Keep doing what you’re doing!! I love your books!! 😀

    Susanne 🙂

  8. Thank you for this very generous offer. I saw you were giving away Audiobooks last month and had meant to ask for one then but was debating between several I had on my TBR list that were available as Audiobooks and as the end of the month approached I figured you had probably given them all away since it is such a great opportunity. Thank you for the Gift Card and eBook giveaway you have added as well. You are so generous to us! Hope you have a great day and I am sure you will reach your goal.

    • You’re welcome, Chelsea. I have been able to give away lot of audiobooks–several hundreds. I still have a lot of promo codes available for all my audiobooks. Email me at with your choice(s). I am more than happy to share! 🙂

      • I sent you an email yesterday with a book request for both the audio and eBook. Thank you and I hope you have a great weekend.

        • Thanks for letting me know you sent an email request yesterday. I just double checked my email and saw it. I’ll send your requested stories as soon as can be. 🙂

  9. Pam has generously gifted me some of her audiobooks. I encourage others to accept her offer. I am a listener who has read JAFF and am now enjoying the audio versions. Thanks, Pam!

  10. This has been the most excitingly generous giveaway-free offer-gift promotion I’ve ever experienced. I have already delved into my audiobooks I’ve received from you Pam, and it is a delight! How I wish this could get out to everyone who would be as tickled as I am over this. Thanks so much. I’m definitely hooked on audio books; and JAFF, North & South, or Regency-Heyeresque is nearly all I listen to. My audiobook habit started with a timid foot in the water just for enjoyment, now I have my vision issues as well, my eyes get very tired before I’d like to just keep reading and reading…. Is there a way to find out if any other authors are taking advantage of this?

    • Thanks so much for your kind words, Michelle. It’s been my pleasure to share my stories in audiobook format with you. I’m glad you’re enjoying them. I jumped at the chance to take advantage of Audible’s special promotion as soon as I learned about it. I think, over time, more authors will too.

  11. You do make wonderful graphics 🙂 We can give away audio books now? I’m very excited about this. I’ll have to learn more. When my first audio book came out, I tried to do a giveaway, but found the only way to do that was to send an Amazon gift card for the amount the book cost, which is confusing with the way they change the price displayed based on what subscriptions you have. I’d love to be able to give away audio books.

    This is a great giveaway you’re holding 🙂

    • Thanks for your kind words. If your audiobooks are exclusive with ACX, then you can take advantage of the new promotion. The new process is so simple. Promo codes are tied to specific audiobooks now, so no worries about them being used for other audiobooks than intended. Best of all, promo code redemption it is largely a one click process. I love it. I hope you will too. :).

  12. Congratulations on all of your new endeavors and may you have much success. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Thank you for putting your books out there on Audible. I haven’t personally used Audible but my SO swears by it since being diagnosed with glaucoma. It has been a blessing for him and helps me keep my sanity. He was a voracious Kindle reader before and now is a voracious Audible listener – plugged into it pretty much 24/7 through his hearing aids’ Kindle/Bluetooth connection.
    Again, thank you.
