Most Wished For Sci-Fi & Fantasy AudioBooks of 2016


The audiobook of Age of Myth just received another 2016 accolade!  This time it hit the 20 Most Wished For Audio books of 2016 List. This particular distinction is something I'm really pleased about because it comes from readers and is showing proof that this little-engine-that-could continues to gain traction. in fact, a quick check of the number of reviews per book shows Age of Myth a distant last place. You would think that would be discouraging, but it's not...at all. I've already been thrilled with the success of the audio book so far and it shows that it has plenty of room to continue to soar, being on the list shows that people are interested, and I'm hoping they'll be picking it up int the future. So, thank you to all the people who are wishing for copies - I hope you get yours soon!


To find myself included on a list with the likes of Rowlings, King, Martin, Gaiman, Sanderson and Rothfuss, is really quite surreal...not to mention the other amazing authors on the list.

For those who prefer text rather than pictures, here are the books along with some data about their release date, rating, and number of reviews (rating information from Audible.com).
