Did you choose Z, All of the above? Well then, smarty pants, you are right! Congratulations! As you can see, reading THE MEMORY BOX allows you to live quite a full and productive life. While many books are only read while sitting, or with your eyes open, THE MEMORY BOX requires neither. What? Did I hear someone ask, how on earth can you operate a bulldozer while reading THE MEMORY BOX? Good question.

I am thrilled to announce that THE MEMORY BOX is going to be an audiobook!

Right now, as you read this, THE MEMORY BOX is being recorded for your listening pleasure! The fine, smart and savvy people at Blackstone Audio, who recently purchased the audiobook rights (in an auction of five bidders), are busy producing the audiobook which is to be released on April 19, 2016. That’s soon! I am one hecka happy!

But if that wasn’t enough, I have the additionally thrilling news to announce that the book will be read by the incredibly talented Cassandra Campbell, 2016 Audies Award Finalist and narrator of such amazing books as Everything I Never Told You, Dark Places, The Help, When Breath Becomes Air, Carol, The Burgess Boys, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Orange is the New Black and hundreds of others. I am so honored to have Cassandra working on this project. Yes, that means the character of Caroline is coming to life–look out, peeps!

THE MEMORY BOX audiobook is available for pre-order right now, as in this very second. So don’t put down the straigtening iron, parachute, hedge trimmer or cross trainers, just grab some earbuds and you won’t miss a thrill or a chill, a twist or a turn!

Now how does that sound?
