DIRTY DETAILS: Audie Awards 2019
The 2019 Audie Awards took place at Gusatavino’s in Manhattan last Monday, March 4th. The event was hosted by the charming and witty Queer Eyefashion expert, upcoming memoirist, and audiobook narrator, Tan France.
What are the Audie Awards, you ask? Think “Oscars of Audiobooks.” According to the Audio Publishers Association, “The Audie Awards recognize outstanding achievement from the authors, narrators, publishers, and producers of the most talked-about audiobooks in the industry.”
Basically, everyone dresses up all fancy, gets out of the booth and into the world! We say hello to our colleagues IRL (!), the champagne is flowing and we all have a grand ol’ time.
This year several of our very own Romance Narrators were nominated. (Pssst...Check out THE NAKED TRUTH with Noah Michael Levine Vol. 1, 2, 3 & 4 to read interviews with the Romance Category nominees.)
Here is a list of nominees in the Romance category:
HIS VIKING BRIDE by Olivia Norem, read by Greg Patmore (WINNER)
