Audiobook Showcase: Classic Melissa Foster

Many Indie writers are familiar with the works of Melissa Foster, a fine writer, a generous spirit, always ready to share her wealth of information about the world of digital publishing.

Today we feature a couple of  Melissa’s early works now available as audiobooks.

Megan's Way

 

Here’s the publisher’s summary:

What would you give up for the people you love? When Megan Taylor, a single mother and artist, receives the shocking news that her cancer has returned, she’ll be faced with the most difficult decision she’s ever had to make. She’ll endure an emotional journey, questioning her own moral and ethical values, and the decisions she’d made long ago. The love she has for her daughter, Olivia, and her closest friends, will be stretched and frayed.

Meanwhile, fourteen-year-old Olivia’s world is falling apart right before her eyes, and there’s nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting in ways she cannot even begin to understand. When her internal struggles turn to dangerous behavior, her life will hang in the balance.

Megan’s closest friends are caught in a tangled web of deceit. Each must figure out how, and if, they can expose their secrets, or forever be haunted by their pasts.

Next up is the first Melissa Foster book I read, Come Back to Me.

Come Back to Me

Here’s what the reader/listener has in store.

Tess Johnson has it all: her handsome photographer husband Beau, a thriving business, and a newly discovered pregnancy. When Beau accepts an overseas photography assignment, Tess decides to wait to reveal her secret – only she’s never given the chance. Beau’s helicopter crashes in the desert. Tess struggles with the news of Beau’s death and tries to put her life back together. Alone and dealing with a pregnancy that only reminds her of what she has lost, Tess is adrift in a world of failed plans and fallen expectations. When a new client appears offering more than just a new project, Tess must confront the circumstances of her life head on.

Meanwhile, two Iraqi women who are fleeing honor killings find Beau barely alive in the middle of the desert, his body ravaged by the crash. Suha, a doctor, and Samira, a widow and mother of three young children, nurse him back to health in a makeshift tent. Beau bonds with the women and children, and together, with the help of an underground organization, they continue their dangerous escape. What happens next is a test of loyalties, strength, and love.

Melissa Foster has carved out a winning niche with her compassionate stories about people facing dire circumstances, who nonetheless find a way to tap into their indomitable human spirits.  So yourself a favor and check out her work.

    Audiobooks have a major distinction in the publishing world, Stephen. Books have a good story. Audiobooks have a good story well told. The voice makes the difference.

  • “Same idea, different authors’ versions” has led to a lot of interesting stories as each writer takes the idea and runs to a different place. That’s voice – and that’s why certain authors have a following.
