Four and Twenty and Counting … Excerpt + Giveaway

Four and Twenty and Counting … Excerpt + Giveaway

I am happy to share news about my newest audiobook: By Reason, by Reflection, by Everything. It’s days away from being available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. It’s also my twenty-fourth collaboration with award-winning narrator and producer, Pearl Hewitt.

Partnering with Pearl is always fun. Not only do our audiobook projects provide the chance for me to catch up with my Darcy and Elizabeth happily ever after stories, but I’m also introduced to different facets of my stories which Pearl brings forth with such brilliant and wonderfully engaging narrations.

There are lots of advantages to working with Pearl on so many projects: many of which were especially evident during the production of By Reason, by Reflection, by Everything. We went from signing the contract on November 28th to uploading the finished files for a 50,000 plus words story on December 1st — just in time for the recommended Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX) holiday production schedule cutoff. What an incredible amount of teamwork and commitment on both our parts. We hope you’ll love the finished product.

As a teaser, I’ve put together a special video excerpt. Enjoy!

Giveaway Time!

Comment for a chance to win an audiobook edition of By Reason, by Reflection, by Everything. Two prizes are available for Audible US and Audible UK listeners only. Two winners will be chosen on Tuesday, December 19th.
Not an audiobook listener? A digital edition of By Reason, by Reflection, by Everything (ePub or mobi) will be awarded instead.

    • Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoyed the audiobook, Kate. Pearl always produces such amazing narrations. I feel blessed to have collaborated with her on all of my audiobooks.

  1. ** I received a comment from Barbara who asked me to post the following on her behalf:

    Hi Pam,
    I love Jane Austin’s and your writing, I have lots of your books!
    This except is most intriguing! Coupled with Pearl’s voice it’s sure
    to be a favorite! I can’t wait to hear/read it!!! Thanks for the
    giveaway and the chance to win!

  2. I’m finally going to be able to get back into quilting and would love a copy of each of your audiobooks, Pam. I hope I’m one of the winners. And now you are partially on your way to next year’s Christmas story. I hope you can finish it while you are in a holiday mood and be the first ready to go with it next year. I’ll be waiting for it, of course. Thanks for the pleasure.

    • I’m so glad to hear you’re getting back to quilting, Betty. That’s wonderful advice to finish the Christmas story while I’m in the holiday mood. I’m very excited that a 2018 Christmas story is practically guaranteed. 🙂 Thanks so much for taking part in the giveaway.

  3. Audible books bring the characters to life. They enable me to listen in the car as I travel and then switch to my kindle for private time with Darcy. The audible book reminds me of skating parties.When we would drive to the state park, skate on frozen pond, eat al fresco lunch then drive back listening to old radio shows that were only on Sunday afternoons. once home i would stay in the car until the Shadow got his man. today I use earphones to simulate that quiet drive with my favorite characters. Definition of a perfect day, is listening to P.O.Dixon’s world of Elizabeth and Darcy on audible!

  12. This book is on my wishlist so I will be reading it soon. Hopefully they will all realise that Darcy has to be with Elizabeth not Jane. With luck Bingley will be there and will monopolies her.
    Ease don’t include me in the giveaway as I don’t have audio books. As for the digital version I received a MOBI file before but couldn’t transfer it to my kindle. I’m no good with technology I’m afraid.
    Thank you for the beautiful video.

    • It’s my pleasure, Glynis. I’m so glad you enjoyed the video. 🙂

      I spent most of my professional career in Information Technology and it took lots of trial and error before I successfully transferred my first MOBI file to my Kindle. 🙁
