My Chat with Tracy Marks

Hello and welcome!

Guess who came for a chat? The awesome Tracy Marks, that’s who! 😀

I recently discovered her works, quite by accident I might add, but I am so happy I did.

Welcome welcome!

Do you have a nickname?
I have a couple, but my favorite is that my boyfriend calls me Pancake instead of Honey or Baby.
I would like to hear the story behind that some day, was there whipped cream involved? 😉

What is one word best describes you?
Just one? Ooo that’s hard! Indecisive? 🙂

What makes you laugh out loud?
Lots of things! I love to laugh, and a good movie or book will make me laugh out loud. My boyfriend and I are also total goofballs together, and he makes me laugh on a daily basis.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of lilacs, it reminds me of growing up. There were a bunch of lilacs on the street of my childhood home, and it’s the sweetest smell during the summer.

Favourite place to spend time in.
I’m a bit of a homebody, I love relaxing at home with my pup and my man.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Nope. I’m voracious and varied in my reading habits… listening habits really, since I consume most books in audio form.

Audiobooks! What started them?
I’ve been acting onstage in film for years, and another actor friend of mine got into audiobooks several years ago. We were out for a drink and she was describing the process to me, and I remember just thinking, “Yes! I want to do this!” I went home that night and started looking into how to get started in audiobook narration.
I am glad you did and I am sure your many fans will agree with me.

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
Not really! I may say no to a book here or there, but it’s on a case by case basis. There’s no genre that I would say a blanket no to.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I think part of the reason I became an actor is because there are a ton of careers that interest me! One thing that I would have really loved to get into is dog training. I love animals, and dogs have a very special place in my heart.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
My goal with every book is to honor and translate the author’s tone and vision. So hopefully the emotion and message changes from book to book. I’ve done a lot of dark romance, and I think part of why I’ve been successful in that is that I can bring a strength but also a vulnerability to my work.

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
Romance readers/listeners! I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible authors, so I would say people should listen to my audiobooks because they’ll hear some really great stories.

What is next in your narrating work?
I have several projects coming up! Next out will be Destiny on Ice, a really fun hockey rom-com by S.R. Grey. Then I have a historical romance novella by Lauren Smith and a hilarious, sexy paranormal romance by Eve Langlais.

Elusive by L.A. Fiore was released a couple of days ago; Possession by A.M. Johnson, and LaClaire Nights by Dori Lavelle will be coming out soon. I’ve got more projects scheduled for the late summer and fall – it’s been a busy year!

Thank you so much Tracy for chatting with me in my little corner of the blogging world. I am looking forward to listening to more.

singing you got a fan in me ….

I would also like to thank you for sharing about Aural Fixation on FB, what an awesome group, the energy is sky high and can tell that the members do love their audiobooks and the voices behind them. Talk about being at the right place at the right time… I don’t feel so alone anymore in my addiction LOL

So far I listened to Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli and it is a darker theme than my usual listen but I am so glad I took a chance. I gobbled them up, I came to love Ms. Marks’ extraordinary voice, so flexible and so much passion and I think it has a lot to do with my enjoyment of the stories, 5 stars across the board. Find my reviews on Audible under seelk.

I added quite a few to my TBL list, among them is Beast by A. Zavarelli released June 30, 2017 and Reckless Weekend by Eden Summers released July 5, 2017.

To start you on your listening journey, Ms. Marks is giving away 5 audio copies of Crow, book 1 in the Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli.

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.

I had a plan.

Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?

Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.

That’s when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn’t a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn’t buying that either.

Too bad for him, I won’t let anyone get in the way of my mission.

Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He’s the worst kind of wrong – and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.

Because they took her from me, and I’m going to make them pay.

My review for it…
