VHP brings out popular titles as audiobooks
Vanilla Heart Publishing of Washington State is now bringing out popular e-book and trade paperback titles at the rate of one novel or short story collection as audio books each month. All VHP audiobooks are available on Amazon.com, Audible.com, and iTunes!
I am very pleased with the narration and the audio quality of my three-story set called “Emily’s Stories.” It was almost as though my character Emily Walters had come alive with my words.
Another author said, “I’m excited about my novel, The Storyteller’s Bracelet, now being on Audible because my elderly mother is legally blind and can no longer read. How wonderful it will be for her to be able to listen to my book!”
The books are unabridged, and displayed with running times and the names of the professional readers. Now you can either read or listen.
Great for traveling and hammocks!

- Appalachian Justice by Melinda Clayton – “Appalachian Justice” tells the story of Billy May Platte. Billy May Platte is a half Irish, half Cherokee Appalachian woman who learned the hard way that 1940s West Virginia was no place to be gay. As Billy May explains, “We was sheltered in them hills. We didn’t know much of nothin’ about life outside of them mountains. I did not know the word lesbian; to us, gay meant havin’ fun and queer meant somethin’ strange.” Appalachian Justice is ultimately a tribute to the resiliency of the human spirit and a celebration of the beauty of second chances. Underneath it all, Appalachian Justice is also a powerful love story, though certainly not a conventional one.
