  1. I am excited to listen the interview! 🙂 I want to an interview with an author on audio who lives in another state, how did you set it up with skype so it recorded? I am really interested in reading this book after hearing interview and I loved hearing the blurb from the fifth wave!

    • Great glad you liked it! Death of Bees was flat out amazing!! And I am just getting into The 5th wave and I can see where it could be the next Hunger Games easily! Smooth read and grabs you from the word go! As for the Skype with Authors, for this interview and others we have used a free app with Skype but as you could tell it does not always give the best quality, so we are testing out a few of the paid versions next time. You can search record Skype audio for details on how it works, the most important thing to look for is a two line record or wav file so editing is easy! Thanks for following us, love your blog too! – Nikki
