Well, her we are, we made it through another year!! I am so happy to have all the wonderful readers, narrators and authors involved with the blog. I am looking forward to another year with loads of new reads. Oh that To Be Read list!! I will also be looking to do some new things here on Eargasms. Some new and some expanding on what I have already been doing.

While I am a prolific reader, I am finding a little help might be in order with the reviews. I will be looking for applications from readers who would like to write reviews of audiobook. You can have your own style, the only thing I ask is that the review be honest but fair, and not a recap of the book blurb.

In addition to audiobook reviews, I will be posting reviews of products as well. Apps that you use to listen to audiobooks, speakers, earphones/headphones and devices used to listen to audiobooks. There will be more Tips & Tricks, exploring other options for listening to audiobooks and getting them on a budget.

More Narrator Spotlights will continue to be posted. We will strive to have one a week on Mondays. In addition, I am looking to have Fridays for Fresh Voices, these are very new narrators who are just getting into the biz and only have a handful of reads. I will also see about more updates through the year from narrators who have spotlighted in the past. We will also start doing a few spotlights of publishers! Yes, there are some great indie publishers out there who could use a little love!

It will be an exciting new year!!! I would love to hear your feedback below about what you are interested in seeing here at Eargasms. Any suggestions of things to come? What do you think works for you and what not so much. Hit me with it!!

Today is the absolute last day to enter for the month of giveaways!!! Use the Rafflecopter below to double check you visited all the narrators and enter, you can also check in with the list here!!! At midnight entries will close and all winners will be announced tomorrow, by noon. Hope you had a blast!!

    Happy New Year April! I love your blog! I think all of the new ideas you’ve mentioned sound fabulous! I’m excited to see you’ll be adding new reviewers too, I’d love to see some different opinions and some different books here too (along with yours of course)! Will the new reviewers be expected to listen to specific books or will they review the books they choose? Thank you so much for another great year and another amazing December Spotlight! Hope your 2016 is perfect!

      I will have a form up on the page soon for folks who want to review. It will be about the genres you enjoy and want to read. I will def be looking for some non-fiction reviewers, as it is not my strongest genre of choice. So many books so little time! LOL

    Happy New Year! I had a lot of fun with this year’s month of narrators. It was great to see some old favorites return and tell us what they have been up to.

  4. Happy New Year to you as well!

    Happy New Year! I’ve really enjoyed meeting the narrators. I usually don’t pay much attention to narrators unless they are really bad and then I avoid them and there are a few I know I like. This was a fun feature to see their faces and learn a bit about them too. I’ll definitely pay more attention to who is narrating my books from now on!

      It always helps me decide on new books to listen to, if I like a voice I will check out their other reads.

    ?HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! ?
    Thank you for providing us all with another fun December of spotlight interviews and giveaways! I’m really excited to hear about what you have planned for the coming year! And, I will be keeping an eye out for info on possibly helping you review…. I’m already doing it anyway but I’m sure it would be even more fun to work with you and all of the people and parts related to Eargasms!

    I hope 2016 is your happiest, healthiest year yet!

    I enjoyed popping in once in a while for your reviews. I’ve got a tidy list of narrators or books for the wish list now. 🙂

    I like your idea of reviewing the audio products as well as having a variety of reviewers.

    Happy New Year, April!
