From "The Three-Martini Playdate" by Christie Mellor. Parents were here first! How did the kids suddenly take control? Sure the world has changed from the days when children were supposed to be seen and not heard - but things have gotten a little out of hand. What about some quality time for the grownups? Author Christie Mellor's hilarious, personal, refreshing, and actually quite useful advice delightfully rights the balance between parent and child. In dozens of short, wickedly funny chapters, she skewers today's parental absurdities and reminds us how to make child-rearing a kick. With recipes, helpful hints, and illustrations, this high-spirited book is the only book parents will really need - and enjoy. [Barnes & Noble]

from "Blue Angel" by Francine Prose. [overview from Barnes & Noble:] It has been years since Swenson, a professor in a New England creative writing program, has published a novel. It's been even longer since any of his students have shown promise. Enter Angela Argo, a pierced, tattooed student with a rare talent for writing. Angela is just the thing Swenson needs. And, better yet, she wants his help. But, as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. . . . Deliciously risqué, Blue Angel is a withering take on today's academic mores and a scathing tale that vividly shows what can happen when academic politics collides with political correctness.

General audiobook demo featuring excerpts from Blue Angel by Francine Prose The Three-Martini Playdate by Christie Mellor The Midwife's Tale by Gretchen Moran Laskas

Andi is a well-read, well-traveled, well-educated bookworm, a theatre, dance, music and museum lover whose favorite childhood toy was a tape recorder and microphone. After years of working in public radio and teaching theatre at the university level (acting and voice/speech), Andi discovered freelance narration work and never looked back. She takes responsibility for the details that matter: the words, their pronunciation, context, and meanings; pristine audio quality; respect for the author and audience; and the vibrant collaboration with author, publisher, narrator and post-production that produces an unforgettable experience for the listener. Recording can happen in Andi's home studio or your studio. She can self-direct or you can direct sessions live via SourceConnect. Andi is an Audible-Approved Producer, which means she can provide a high-quality fully produced audiobook from your manuscript. WHAT AUTHORS ARE SAYING: I listened to a lot of auditions and right from the start, Andi Arndt stood out as one of the front runners. Her talent for giving all of the characters a distinct voice was astounding, from a ten year old girl to a grizzled medical examiner, and she also showed a great aptitude for accents as well as brief snippets of song. I was especially impressed with her ability to carry the flow of the text as well as her grasp of the intent behind the words, which led to a fantastic reading that I found engaging as well as entertaining. From the moment I chose her to produce my audiobook, she was professional and extremely responsive, answering all of my questions and exceeding agreed upon time tables. I would definitely choose Andi Arndt again for a future audible projects. --Lisa Olsen Andi, I finished listening to the book and am amazed at how well you did telling the story. I came home from work and listened to the whole thing with laughter and tears. You were the perfect talent to take this difficult subject and turn it into something wonderful. Rachel's characterization is so touching. Thank you for handling it with care and concern. --Vicki Hopkins, aka J. D. Burrows I absolutely love that Andi Arndt narrated my Regret Series. She began with the first, Take This Regret, and I didn't hesitate requesting her for the second two as well. She has an outstanding voice and inflection. It's such a great feeling when someone messages me and says Wow, the audiobook was amazing! Andi really brought my characters to life. --A.L. Jackson

2017 Audie Awards for Romance and Erotica narration Multiple Voice Arts Award nominations AudioFile EARPHONES AWARD winner Named an AudioFile Best Voice of 2015 for Romance ***2014 Audie Award Finalist**** NINE INCHES :Stories by Tom Perrotta Read by William Dufris, Andi Arndt, Tom Perrotta, Rupert Degas Perrotta is better known as a novelist (ELECTION, LITTLE CHILDREN), but his stories cover much the same territory--unhappy, damaged people in the New Jersey suburbs. That may sound depressing, but, especially with the cheerful, witty readings they get here, they lean more toward the entertaining. Andi Arndt covers the women, but the credits do not assign the male narrators to the male protagonists. Not to worry, though: All three keep the stories from being about losers by balancing the undertone of despair with an equally important tone of humor. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014] LUCIA IN LOVE by Heather Graham Heather Graham's fans will be thrilled with Andi Arndt's sympathetic and wonderfully dramatic reading of this classic romance. Lucia Lorenzo had planned to simply enjoy her family reunion. Then she wakes up beside Ryan Dandridge, the very man she has been trying--and failing--to forget. Though Arndt's Massachusetts accent isn't as strong as her Southern one, she handles the varied and colorful members of Lucia's extended family with aplomb. The true magic of her narration is her ability to convey the tension and desire between the main couple from the very first scene. Her energy and charm will draw listeners into this steamy story and keep them thoroughly engaged during the whole emotional journey. B.E.K. © AudioFile 2014 LEARNING TO LOVE : Sugar and Spice and Love by Degree Debbie Macomber Read by Andi Arndt In this dual story set, narrator Andi Arndt deftly plays up the timid, insecure nature of plain Jayne Gilbert, a librarian who is so determined to show up at her ten-year high school reunion with a guy that she accepts the assistance of her mysterious neighbor. In the second story, headstrong Ellen goes back to college and moves into a house with three college guys. Though this helps with her financial situation, she finds herself at odds with the handsome owner of the house. Arndt's articulation, fluctuating tones, and varied pace are especially bewitching and comical as she portrays the fretting and confusion that prevail when the female protagonists are in the presence of their love interests.
