Audible.com Tournament of Books

Since a nice reader just reminded me in the comments to the previous post–I’m very flattered to find that THE FIERY CROSS has made it to the Final Round of Audible.com’s Tournament of Audiobooks! That took a LOT of voting to propel the book through the four previous rounds, and I’m really grateful to all of you who did vote. I think it’s a huge compliment–and completely earned!–to Davina Porter, who’s done such a fabulous job with all my books, and did her usual masterly work with THE FIERY CROSS.

I think this final round’s voting goes until April 23rd–so should you feel the urge [g], do go by and vote for your favorite!

Here is the regular voting page – you click on “view matchup” to get to vote–but some people mentioned having trouble with that one.

Here is the HTML voting link, in case the first one doesn’t work for you.

And thanks very much for all your kindness!

  1. Thanks for helping to get the word out about this! I’d love to see you (and Davina Porter) win the tournament.


  2. Stupid question: How do you pronounce your last name?

  3. Dear Judy–

    Depends. [g] If you’re speaking Spanish (it’s a Spanish name–and it is _my_ name, btw, not my husband’s) it’s Gah-vahl-DOHN (rhymes with “stone”). Whereas if you’re speaking English, it’s “GAH-bull-dohn” (still rhymes with “stone,” but a different syllabic emphasis.


  4. I wish I’d seen this earlier so that I could have voted!

  5. Diana: The links on your site do not work. Just wanted you to know.

  6. Never mind. It is now closed. Good luck!!!!

  7. I was wondering if you have a place on your website or blog to add additional comments about your books or like a reader feedback/comment section for each individual book. I can’t find it if it’s here. I just read that there will be two more books to you Outlander series and am so excited about this news. I do hope that you will end the series with a “happy” ending though. It’s such a long time to invest in Clair and Jamie and then be heartbroken in the very end.
