Teaser Audio Clip for THROUGH THE LAST DOOR

Sharing a teaser clip from the soon-to-be-released audiobook for my m/m fantasy novel Through the Last Door, narrated by the super-talented Dan Calley. Hopefully it will be just a couple more weeks before it's available, depending on how long it takes to get through the QR process on ACX. I can't wait to be able to share it with all of you!!! 🥰

Just in case the clip doesn't play for you, here is a direct link to the video.

Almost there! :D

I just finished listening to the final chapter recordings for my m/m fantasy novel, Through the Last Door. Dan Calley's narration is absolutely amazing! Hiring a professional voice actor for the narration was definitely a choice I don't regret. His voice is completely absorbing to listen to, and the way he brings the characters and scenes to life is absolutely amazing. It's been an incredible and slightly surreal experience to hear my characters and scenes brought to life like this, and in such a brilliant and beautiful way. I'm so very excited about it. :D

Now we're moving into the production phase. This part will likely take a few weeks, depending on how long it takes ACX to approve the final audio files. I'm hoping it won't be very long. The audiobook will be available very soon!!

Book Cover and Promotional Design

Over the past few years, I've begun designing my own covers and promo graphics for the books I've been writing. It's something I really enjoy doing! I love the creativity of trying to capture the atmosphere and theme of a book in visual form. The more I work with these kinds of images, the more I find myself loving it.

From conversations I've been having with other authors, not everyone feels comfortable designing their own graphics for the books they write. So I'm extending an offer to create book covers and/or promo graphics for my fellow authors (and other creative types!). I'm really excited about this, and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can come up with for your visual designs together. ♥

Here are some examples of the promotional graphics I've created. You can click on the images to see a larger version of them:



There are more samples on my Graphics Design webpage here:

The fee I'm charging is US$25 per cover design, plus the cost of whatever paid stock images you decide to include. The price includes both an e-book cover and promotional graphics for your book.

If you're interested in starting a graphics project, send me an email at jajakenfiction@gmail.com and let me know what kind of design you're looking for! :)

Audiobook Update

So far I've listened to 11 chapters of the audiobook for Through the Last Door as it's being recorded, and I cannot stop bouncing from excitement! Dan Calley is doing an absolutely beautiful job of it. He's amazing to work with, so patient with all of my questions and the tweaks I'm requesting. I love how he's working with me to find the absolute perfect voices for the characters. I could not be happier or more excited about this entire process. I'm really looking forward to hearing the next chapters!!! :)
