My First Audiobook Review

Posted in news, updates with tags , , on July 18, 2013 by Robin Eller

It’s always nice to read a good review. I’m super pleased because it’s my first in Audiofile magazine.  I’m grateful to Oasis Audio for giving me this book to narrate.  I must give credit to my engineer and friend, Zach (Mosaic Audio) for taking the trip with me. Zach is another superhero to me.  Here’s to many more positive reviews on my journey into the world of audiobooks.

AudioFile audiobook review: LIFE INTERRUPTED By Priscilla Shirer , Read by Robin Ray Eller
Source: audiofilemagazine.com
Submitting to the order God has in mind for us figures heavily in this sweetly narrated lesson on how to handle interruptions in the ideal life we make for ourselves. The author, who has written other spiritual guides, is a wife, mother, broadcaster, and minister who uses biblical stories, especially that of the prophet Jonah, to show how unexpected setbacks are God’s way of redirecting us toward a destiny that is more suited to our true nature–and His will. Though many of these parables and lessons could drift into sentimentality, Robin Ray Eller’s narration elevates them into the realm of memorable inspiration. Even with her youthful speaking voice, she makes a mature and appealing case for the author’s message. T.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine

Audiobooks Narrators Coming Together

Audiobook Community gives back

Going Public In Shorts

I’m so proud to have been a part of this special project in conjunction with June is Audiobook Month (#JIAM).  The audiobook community found a way to give back and in support of  “Reach Out And Read” – a non-profit organization that advocates for childhood literacy.  This project was also in recognition of  “June Is Audiobook Month” #JIAM. It was truly a pleasure and an honor to be in the company of my esteemed colleagues and friends.

Check out my interview by a lovely Audiobook blogger: http://lakesidemusing.blogspot.com/    As soon as time permits, look out for me expanding on my adventures in Italia.

FYI: All short stories are still available for download and the proceeds will go to Reach Out and Read. Check out the other narrators when you have time. It’s a great way to show your support for childhood literacy.

Although #JIAM has come and gone OR if you’ve never listened to an audiobook… it’s never too late to start.  Perhaps you’ll drop me a note and let me know what you’re listening to.

Dance Is A Gift

Posted in life with tags , , on July 17, 2013 by Robin Eller

I’m so fortunate to have had the opportunity to be a professional dancer for as long as I did. It was a joy and a privilege to know that the story I told on stage could impact my audience. It was my obligation to go out each time and give the best performance possible.  The places I’ve been, the people I’ve met along the way.. will be moments to treasure for the rest of my life. To this day, dancing is still one of the greatest gifts that I give to myself. Yes, I have given one of the greatest gifts in the world.
