Audible's Best Fantasy of 2016

I'm starting to feel like a broken record, but I'm pleased to announce that Age of Myth has made yet another Best of 2016 list; this time from Audible.com.  


There are several things that make this list particularly special. First, it was a short list. Just five titles picked (as opposed to 15 or 20 as was the case with the other lists). Given that there were more than 2,100 fantasy audio titles in 2016, that's pretty amazing.

But what I'm most pleased about is that Tim Gerard Reynolds had two nominations, AND he is the narrator on the winning book!  Congratulations to him and Jonathan Renshaw on Dawn of Wonder taking top honors.


Here's the full list:
  • Winner: Dawn of Wonder by Johnathan Renshaw narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds
  • Finalist: Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson narrated by Michael Kramer
  • Finalist: Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds
  • Finalist: Super Powereds by Drew Hayes narrated by Kyle McCarley
  • Finalist: No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished by Rachel Aaron narrated by Vikas Adam
I'm also thrilled by Rachel Aaron's success with her series of dragon books. These were self-published and she's been rocking both the audible and ebook charts...and making some great coin in the process. Always good to see that happen!
