The Year of the Audiobook

Though I haven't published any new books this year, I have been busy boosting my library of audiobooks.

Here is what I have available on Audible, Amazon, iTunes under both my pseudonyms:

The Weaver Tales series by Kai Strand

The Weaver

Finalist in the 2012 EPIC Ebook Awards and the 2012 Global Ebook Awards
In a town of word weavers, Mary suffers through her third year of Novice Word Weaving. Mary thinks her troubles are over when she meets a gnome-elf who grants her a wish. But instead of weaving a better story, she's weaving strange yarn charms to accompany her still pathetic tales.

The Wishing Well

Molly Minstrel is treated worse than Cinderella by her mom and sisters. When Molly meets the magical creature, Unwanted, she wishes her problems away. However, you must first understand what you need before knowing what to ask for. Molly will have to look within for the solution to her troubles. 

The Lumpy Duckling

Lumpy may be hefty with a misshapen mouth, but he’s funny and the most loyal friend Wheezy could ask for. When she meets Unwanted, she casts a wish for people to be able to see her best friend like she does. Her wish nearly kills him.

Save the Lemmings by Kai Strand

Eighth grade inventor Natalie Edwards doesn’t mind that her classmates cringe at her inspirational sayings and monochromatic outfits. Her parent’s love and the support of her three best friends make it easy to ignore the eye rolls and head shakes. But after her invention, the Texty-Talky, goes nationwide, the media considers her the new “IT” girl and it changes everything at school, at home, and with her friends. 

Then a reporter prints a story about Natalie’s unfortunate graffiti incident and even her squeaky clean reputation is shattered. Natalie’s sunny disposition is stretched to the limits when reports surface of her stealing her invention from aliens. She’s desperate to regain control of her life before she loses everything to the media storm. Will she be able to disprove the lies being printed and stay true to who she really is? Or will the pressure prove too much?

I Am Me by Kai Strand

Finalist in the 2018 Wishing Shelf Awards

Despite-or perhaps because of-her fancy car, private school education, and life of privilege, Lola Renaldi has become a volunteer junkie. Feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, visiting the elderly-if it's a good cause, she's done it.

Lola's favorite stint, building affordable houses, puts her directly in the path of Rodney. He refuses to discuss why he's doing community service, but it's clear he's hiding something dark about his past. As their friendship grows, Lola begins to question the true reasons for her obsessive volunteerism and her view of those she has pledged to help.

She is only beginning to understand how lucky she truly is when her life falls apart. After losing friends, her boyfriend, even Rodney, Lola finally recognizes which parts of her life she wants to hang on to and what specifically she wants to go after. But with all she's been through, will she be able to hang onto who she wants to be? Or will she lose all that defines her?

Touched by Afterlife series by LA Dragoni

Ghost Touch

For fifteen minutes each night a portal opens in Tamara's barn and a horde of ghosts spills into her yard. She and Dex work together to find a way to help Cal and the thousands of spirits stuck in the void to cross over. When she learns she has the ghost touch—the ability to touch the ghosts as if they were corporeal—and she accidentally helps a little boy cross, she believes it might be possible. But not all the spirits play nice and when they learn they can sip energy from her ghost touch, they become greedy putting her life at risk.

Each time Cal has to pull her from the mass of ghosts, her touch restores him more and more until he is at danger of being stuck on earth—forever, which is very enticing to Tamara the better she knows him. Will she and Dex figure out how to help the spirits cross and if they do, will she be able to let Cal go?

I've been kicking around whether or not to contact my publisher about the Super Villain Academy series. Would listeners like to have that series available? I'm also planning on re-publishing my middle grade, Beware of the White. I'll be revising it and probably retitling it, but plan to release an audiobook at the same time. No ETA on that. 

Have you listened to any of my audiobooks? Have a favorite? Let me know in comments.


  1. Hey guys! I like this special and unique story you shared with us! I would like to listen to your audiobooks!Where do I find those?

    1. The links in this article will take you to Amazon, but the books are also available on iTunes and Audible. Click on the Books by Kai Strand page for those links :)

  2. Personally, I prefer reading paper books, but sometimes I can listen to a book I like because it takes much less time.

    1. I know what you mean. Sometimes you just need to feel the book in your hands. I just love being able to multi-task with an audiobook.

  3. The use of audiobooks is very popular among the younger generation, but older people prefer paper media.

    1. I don't think paper will ever go away. And I hope it doesn't. There is something more lasting in a bound book.

  4. I am fond of reading but I have never liked audiobooks. For me, classical reading is much better for one reason - self-improvement. It is really important to read a book and improve language skills or to learn unknown for you words. Audiobooks can not give you that.
