Romance Narrators at Booklovers Con 2019
Three RN members – Pam Dougherty, Amy McFadden and Karen White – met up in New Orleans with fellow narrators Sophie Amoss and Mark Turetsky to celebrate audiobooks at BLC2019..
We loved meeting listeners and authors, performing live readings of our audiobooks and sharing tips on reading to an audience in our panel, “Picture Your Audience Naked.”
Some favorite moments:
Meeting über listeners Annelise and Kelsey, sisters who are so “audicted” they wear and carry their listening stats!
Cozying up on couches for our first Listening Lounge readings.
Trying to figure out the selfie stick included in our swag bags.
Using our new Romance Narrators banner for the first time.
The appreciative and engaged audience for our panel, in particular author Melanie Jayne who was nervous about an upcoming reading, Annelise and Kelsey who went out to gather participants for us and Brittany who shared a cautionary tale of listening at work (bottom line – DON’T walk away from your phone when wearing Bluetooth earbuds unless you want your colleagues to hear what you’re listening to!)
Getting to read to listeners in person at the Listening Lounge, sponsored by our union, SAG-AFTRA.
Fellow Romance Narrators who always have your back!
