   The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . GABBY (Safe Haven Wolves, #1) . . . I want more. Questions. Answers. More. Gabby was strong, resilient, young, lost, confused, consumed. This was titled right. This was all about Gabby. Her young life turned upside down. Left int he dark. Lost. Found. Saved. 

This was a quick read and getting to know you of the Safe Haven Wolves. To be so short there was a lot here. 

Jacq Ainsworth did the job of giving life to each of the characters and making them feel more real. 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Sherry Foster. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

She’s on the run. She’s being hunted. If only she knew why. Trey’s only goal is to protect his pack. When a young shifter female moves into his territory, it raises a million questions. Who is she? Doesn’t she know how dangerous it is to travel alone and unprotected? Where did she come from, and what kind of danger did she bring with her? Time is running out as Gabby’s first transformation nears. Trey must walk a knife edge between protecting her from harm and convincing her of what she is. He also has to convince her she isn’t going crazy so she will give his pack a chance, and maybe give him a chance. After all, shifter females are scarce. They have to be protected at all costs. Failure is not an option. But will the rabbit hole she's tumbling down prove too much for her to handle? Grab your copy today and find out.

  Writing is a full time wonderful job. But when your only help has 4 legs and sharp claws, it can be a bit stressful. Raccoons are less help than toddlers when it comes to computers. Much less helpful. With two grown children who have gifted her with 10 amazing grandchildren Sherry tries to fit in spending the right amount of time with the children with writing the books the characters are screaming about in her head.
Q&A with Author Sherry Foster
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • When I wrote the first book a second book wasn’t even a possibility much less an audiobook. I think, if I could have seen that far ahead I would have done things differently.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • I put a sample up on ACX and accepted auditions. I received several and actually signed a contract with one, but it fell through. So I tried again and Jacq was the only one to absolutely nail a certain character. I knew then she would be able to give my characters the voice I had in my head.
  • Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • I sent Jacq a page or so of character descriptions and tried to give her insight into how I heard the character.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • In Gabby there weren’t any real life inspirations. In the books which follow Gabby there are scenes that have really happened in my life with family or my significant other that I felt fit well.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I have other projects I work on when not working on Safe Haven Wolves and I “vacation” every other month. I live in Louisiana and my significant other now lives in North Dakota. I fly up every 4 to 7 weeks and stay 3 weeks with him. I work on my books while he works and I get my inspiration from him. He is a massive well of encouragement.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • Oh no. Not even a little bit. I do not have to sort of attention span that lets me listen to a book.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • Each and every scene with Stormie was exactly how I imagined her and I think you can really get a feel for her from the narration over the book. She isn’t the main character but she is a steady character throughout the series.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
    • Yes, I think I would. But I wouldn’t want to stay long. I would love to see the pyramids being built and then jump forward in time to when bison roamed the plains of the United States by the millions.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • I think audiobook listeners have a bit of an advantage over readers. They can listen while driving, while eating, while doing chores and while exercising. So I don’t think of it as cheating.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • I have to answer this one with a simple join the facebook group 20booksto50k and read all the files. It is practically a masters course in publishing with success. Or perhaps I should say marketing with success.
  • What’s next for you?
    • More Safe Haven Wolves and more Deyarian Universe books. I also have a gargoyle romance in the works and a possible dragon shifter series.
