We thought we were alone.

Lyka Bay was supposed to be the only town of lycans.

But…it’s not.

After the wolf I thought was wild shifts into a teenage boy, he leads me and Keaton to another town of half-cured lycans, and we’re exposed to a whole new world.

We thought the lycans were monsters…but there’s something worse.

And if we can’t figure out how to cure them, there’s a good chance they’ll kill us.

Hi, I’m Lola! I’m a book lover with a *slight* werewolf obsession and a massive book addiction. I read a ton, write a ton, and have an unhealthy relationship with both Red Bull and chocolate. My books are always about new-adult characters, and I love putting twists on common romance tropes!

Avie is an audiobook narrator living in her off-grid tiny house in rural Eastern Canada, surrounded by forest and chicken friends, and honeybees. She loves books so much she’s listening to one almost every minute she’s not narrating one (she also narrates as Aven Shore). She narrates live on Discord with other romance narrators on the Haven server. She is longing to travel and hike in mountains again, and dreaming of sleep in the lava fields of Iceland under Northern lights again, her favorite place in the world. Her past lives include being a carpenter, firefighter, tax accountant, and competitive snowboarder.

At Audiobook Empire, audio reigns supreme, narrators are hailed as heroes, and headphones are worn with pride.

Length: 4 hours and 37 minutes

Series: Moon of the Monsters, Book 1

Released: April 11, 2022

Producer: Audiobook Empire

Publisher: Glass Publishing LLC

Genre: Paranormal Romance; New Adult

Fate makes no exceptions.

When stepping into a town full of werewolves like me for the first time in my life, I expected to be welcomed – or at least tolerated.

Instead, I got hit in the face with a door.

And then, found my dad’s face on a dartboard in their diner.

The people there need my help, but I can’t help them unless I tell them who I am. And telling them who I am just might get me killed.

The one connection I find comes in the form of a gorgeous, inked-up chemist who’s the only person in town that doesn’t hate me. He could be exactly what I need in more ways that one – and I’m pretty sure he’s my fated mate.

Every day I’m there seems to increase my odds of dying as the townies try to force me out, but I refuse to back down.

I’ll save them…even if they kill me for doing it.

Q&A with Author D. C. Armstrong
  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
    • The audiobook process turned out to be the most fun I’ve had in my publishing journey! I used ACX to produce the audiobook and everything went very smoothly. I was able to select a narrator from the auditions very quickly and he was very responsive to my character notes and suggestions. After only a few revisions we were able to lock in the final product.
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?
    • Absolutely. The early feedback I received often included something along the lines of – you should be a screenplay writer. I agree with this, but in the case of this specific story I felt compelled to push forward with writing a novel. The difficulty is that this story, and the way that it is written, doesn’t fit neatly in the Fantasy genre. It includes magic, sword fighting, good versus evil but it is intentionally limited to a small core cast and focused on dialogue and character development. The book does read more like a play and has less in the way of an immersive descriptive fantasy world as it was intended to appeal to those looking for a lighter read.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • No. It should have been. Funnily enough it didn’t even occur to me until nearly a year after publishing that audiobooks would give me the freedom to write in the way that feels most natural to me.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • When I initially set up the book for auditions, I had selected an American accent for the narrator but the first message I got was from Nathaniel inquiring about whether I would consider a British accent. I told him I would certainly consider it and he promptly sent in an audition file soon after. I never even listened to the other auditions because I was so blown away by his characterizations and voicework. Felt like it was meant to be!
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process?
    • Nathaniel was great to work with. I felt very comfortable relaying any notes about the tone a character would speak with and letting him in on a deeper level about different plot points so that the dialogue could resonate the way I intended. He was very responsive and efficient with any corrections and enthusiastic to see the project come to life.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • The entirety of the novel is far more personal than I had originally intended. The plot changed from draft to draft as I began to incorporate more of myself into the characters. My own sense of humor changed the tone of the book completely despite it originally being written out with a much darker plot.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • My favorite parts of the story are when all of the core cast of characters come together. I am a big fan of the show Arrested Development and love when the family comes together and I feel like that tone influenced a lot of those scenes and resonates better when you can hear the voices of the characters.

D. C. Armstrong is the author of Cassius and Ellendarra, and the upcoming sequel The Last King of Evlontus. A fan of character-driven stories, her work is light in the details and fast-paced but epic in scale nonetheless.
