NOVEL CONCEPT is now an Audiobook!

When we received an audition from Melissa Strom for the voice talent of Novel Concept, we were incredibly excited! We immediately knew that she had to be the one to read this book! Melissa's voice has got to be one of the best girl voices around. Her voice acting pulls you in and immerses you in the story immediately. Plus, she's been on Monk. 😉

I'm excited to announce that Novel Concept by Teagan Bentley is now available as an audiobook read by Melissa Strom. It is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Plus, it's less than $4! What a deal!

CODY GREENE AND THE RAINBOW MYSTERY is now an Audiobook!

Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery was one of the most exciting books that Do Life Right, Inc. has published. With ten, yes TEN, artists involved, I kept receiving present after present of lovely illustrations as the publishing process went along. It was so fun! That's why, when it came time to turn this adorable chapter book into an audiobook, I was super picky about finding just the right voice. We received auditions from men, women, and children for this book, and we patiently waited for just the right voice. Once we found that voice, we waited some more in order to make sure that voice really would work for the whole story. This book is a 1st person boy-voice book afterall!

We found the perfect voice in C. S. Perryess, and his Cody voice is spot-on according to the author, Linda Fields, and myself.

Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery can be purchased in audiobook form on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

The Howling Vowels: Book Club Questions

The Howling Vowels by Leslie Schultz is becoming a popular book club book. Leslie put her "Alexa" hat on and came up with these great questions, all from Alexa's point of view. This is so fun!

Alexa Asks: Book Group Discussion Questions

A Note from the Author:

Hi Everyone! I am so glad that you read The Howling Vowels and are talking about it with other readers. Below is a list of questions that I created. Just for fun, I wrote the questions as if Alexa were right there with you asking them. (If you read the book, you know how she likes to talk! If you think of other great questions that would make this list better, I would love it if you would let me know at www.winonamedia.net.

Thanks! Happy reading! Happy discussing! All the best,

Leslie Schultz

 

Hi! Alexa Stevens here again. Thanks for reading about me. Guess what? I have some questions for you,about what you thought of my story and about your own life story.

(1)           Did you have a favorite chapter in The Howling Vowels? Which one? Why was it your favorite?

(2)           Did you have a favorite character?

(3)           Which Vowel did you feel was most like you? Why?

(4)           I am an only child, so that is all I know. I wonder how my life would be different if I had a sister or a brother. Do you have siblings, or are you an only, too? Have you ever wished for more siblings than you have, or fewer? Why or why not?

(5)           Parents are a big part of my story and my life so far. What is your favorite thing about your parents? What would you like to change if you could? Do you wish you spent less time with them? More time?

(6)           Moving to a new house is a big deal, while moving to a new city is huge! It was hard for me to leave what I knew and loved, but it turned out to be an opportunity. Have you ever moved? If you had to move out of your current state, where would you go? Why?

(7)           Would you like to live in Sundog, Minnesota? Why or why not?

(8)           You know a little about my passions for Irish dance, films, science, and Norse myths. (Well, and questions!) What do you think are the passions of the other Howling Vowels characters, both the kids and the grownups? What are your passions? Who shares them? What is the craziest thing you ever did because you were excited by an idea?

(9)           My friends are like me in some ways – and way different in other ways! What about your own friends?

(10)       Have you ever had a misunderstanding with a friend, like I did with Otto when I tried to get him interested in the science fair? If you did, what happened?

(11)       My friends learn in different ways and have different kinds of schooling. What about you? Do you have a favorite thing to learn about? How do you learn best? Do you think learning new things is a form of fun or a form of work – or both?

(12)       Have you ever had to comfort a friend, like I did when Eduardo told me about his sister? How did you know what to say or do? Why do you think he didn’t tell me about his sister before El Dia de los Muertos?

(13)       Ursula isn’t a complainer, but she was having a hard time after her parents’ divorce. Have you ever had a friend with a really big problem?

(14)       Would you like to read another book about me and my friends? (I hope so, because I am working on another one right now!)

Okay, that is about all for now, so I’ll sign off. If you want to send me any thoughts or drawings, write to me at winonamedia.net!
