I’m so excited to tell you that my Coco Pinchard series of romantic comedy novel is coming to audio!
The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard has just started recording, and is narrated by the brilliant Jan Cramer, who voices my Erika Foster crime thriller series, and my stand-alone romantic comedy Miss Wrong and Mr Right.
We are going into production with ALL the books in the series. As well as the three full-length novels, The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard, Coco Pinchard’s Big Fat Tipsy Wedding, and Coco Pinchard, The Consequences of Love and Sex. We’ll be producing the two novellas, A Very Coco Christmas and Coco Pinchard’s Must-Have Toy Story.
The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard should be available to download through Audible and iTunes worldwide at the beginning of June, with the rest of the books following every few weeks. As soon as recording is complete on each one, they will be uploaded.
It has been a long-held dream of mine to have the Coco Pinchard series produced as audiobooks, but I wanted to make sure they are completely faithful to the characters, so I am producing them through my own Team Bryndza Audiobooks imprint.
I’ve spent this last week emailing back and forth and on the phone with the lovely Ms Cramer, finalising voices for all the characters. I listened to the first half an hour of The Not So Secret Emails last night and got quite emotional. Coco sounds just as I imagined her, as well as Ethel, Meryl, and Tony… Rosencrantz, they are all brilliant and Jan’s take on Regina Battenberg is just fab!
The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard was the first book I wrote, and it was such a struggle and a feat of endurance to just get to the end and finish. It took almost three years! I’d never written a book before, and I was trying to fit it in around working, and then being unemployed. When I finished it I managed to get a literary agent who submitted it to every major publishing house, only for it to be rejected by them all – and then for the agent to fire me too!
The manuscript then sat in a drawer for two years, and it was only when Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing came along that I was persuaded to upload it and I’m so glad I did! It’s been such a journey of ups and downs, but the series has now had over HALF A MILLION Kindle downloads! Seeing how readers love the series, and being in a position to produce audiobooks of the series exactly how I want them, makes me feel so lucky and blessed. Thank you to everyone who has taken Coco Pinchard into their hearts, and kept asking for more! I can’t wait to hear what you think of Coco in audio!
P.S And there will be more Coco Pinchard books, she is merely on hiatus. I always planned for her to have a few years break to allow for ***Spoiler alert*** Little Adam to grow up a bit (in the world of Coco, he will be five years old in August!) ***End spoiler*** I already have a cracking story in mind!
