Audio Review Crew Openings

Are you an Audible member? Do you enjoy listening to audiobooks? If so, there are a few slots open on my Audio Review Crew. I'd love to have you as a member!

Audio Review Crew members receive complimentary copies of my audio books from time to time. In exchange, members post an honest review at or for the audio version of the book.

Membership in the Audio Review Crew is simple. You must be a member of my newsletter list and:

1) Have an account at 
2) Commit to listening to the audio book and posting a forthright review within the allotted time period, which is usually two weeks (not shorter.)

As long as you continue to listen and review, you remain a member of the crew.

Interested? Send an e-mail to assistant AT nicoleburnham DOT com with the subject line: AUDIO REVIEW CREW by Monday, January 30. Again, there are a limited number of spots, so new members of the crew will be chosen at random. If you’re not selected, your name will be put on a waitlist. When spots open, you’ll receive an email from my assistant to ask if you’re still interested.

I hope to open the Audio Review Crew to those who get their audiobooks at other sites soon (iBooks, etc.), so stay tuned if your preferred vendor is outside of Amazon/Audible.

A heartfelt thank you in advance to all who participate. As I'm sure you know from making your own book purchases, reviews are a huge help to other readers.

Christmas Season

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Most people are big on the eggnog, caroling, Santa visits, or shopping. I'm all about the tree. Each year, when I open my box of ornaments, there are a few in particular that make me smile. Handmade gifts from family are at the top of that list. I also have ornaments I've collected while traveling, such as a Sydney Opera House ornament, one of Westminster Cathedral, or a flower from St. Lucia. Others come from living abroad. I was fortunate enough to spend six years in Germany (and my parents were there an additional three years, during which I made as many visits as possible) and collected a number of traditional wooden German ornaments and glass or crystal Czech ornaments that spoke to me. Here are a few of my favorites. If you celebrate Christmas, let me know about yours! What makes you smile each year as you decorate your tree?

A favorite: Santa's Nice List.
I bought four of these gorgeous ornaments in the Czech Republic.

A German Romeo and Juliet

German Geography professor, post-Berlin Wall.

Don't forget...if you're in the mood for Christmas reading, the three Royal Scandals holiday novellas are now out in a single collection titled A Royal Scandals Christmas: Three Holiday Novellas. It's available in your choice of ebook, paperback, or audio. Hollis McCarthy does a brilliant job narrating the audiobooks for the entire series. She hit it out of the park with this one!

Thanks to all of you for sharing this wonderful year with me. I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy 2017.

FAQ: What is the Order of the Royal Scandals Books?

The question I'm asked most frequently (other than, "when's the next book?") is for the order of the Royal Scandals titles. There are currently five full length novels and three holiday novellas in the series. In order, they are:
The three Christmas novellas are available individually as ebooks. They are also available as a single collection titled A Royal Scandals Christmas, which is available in ebook, print, and audio. Buying the collection will save you a few dollars/Euros over buying the novellas individually.

A Royal Scandals Wedding, a short story exclusively for newsletter subscribers, is set at the wedding of Prince Stefano and Megan Hallberg, who appeared in Scandal With a Prince. Chronologically, it takes place during Slow Tango With a Prince. If you sign up for the newsletter, you'll receive an email asking you to confirm your subscription. This will also give you the info for receiving your copy of A Royal Scandals Wedding.

The next book in the series features Lina Cornaro, the sister of Rocco Cornaro from The Royal Bastard. No release date yet, as I'm working on the story now, but as soon as I know, I'll send a notice to everyone on my newsletter list.

Thanks to everyone who's written to ask!
