A Voice From the Grave First Quarter Sales Through the Roof

A Voice From the Grave Audio Book

Brook Forest Voices is pleased to announce that the first quarter numbers are in for the 2012 First Place CIPA EVVY award winner A Voice From the Grave. In one month alone this audio book sold almost three hundred copies.

“A Voice From The Grave” is one of the best civil war mysteries that I have ever read. Ms. Mason’s writing has the ability to transport the reader into the story to a point where one can almost see, hear, and feel what is happening. She does an incredible job of blending the past and present and doesn’t leave the reader confused or wondering what happened. One of the reasons that I really enjoyed this mystery is because I could not pre-guess the ending. I could not put this book down until I had finished it. I was surprised and delighted with the conclusion. The only “spoiler” I will give is that this is one of the first books concerning civil war prisons that I’ve read that has a female as a character. I will not say more so I do not give away any more spoilers but it is well worth reading. I highly recommend this to anyone that likes history, mysteries, or just a well-written book” By Lasla Moore

 

“Yvonne Mason does it again! From the compelling cover, through the historical accuracy and on to her carefully-woven mystery, Mason grabs the reader and doesn’t let go. History buffs will be pleased with the factual descriptive drama of a time and place of shame in our country’s past. Who hasn’t heard of the terrible, evil Andersonville? And who doesn’t wonder about the spiritual unrest of those who suffered and died horribly there? Get your copy of this audio book and be prepared to be thrust back into the time of the American Civil War, then brought forth to the present-day mystery. You will not want to turn it off.” Holly Fox Vellekoop

 

This review is from: A Voice from the Grave (Paperback)

This book, by Yvonne Mason was a mesmerizing read. Bouncing from the present day back to the days of the Civil War. The graphic words describing the hell hole which was known as Andersonville Prison was enough to put the reader right there in those circumstances, shivering with the horror suffered by the armies of this country’s greatest and bloodiest war. Families ripped apart and asunder often with no word of the fate of loved ones.

The mysterious and ghostly visitations leading the characters through a maze of confusion and eerie denial of the possibility of life after death to a die hard believer in such things as he and his niece, Savanna go on the hunt of their lives for the answers to the puzzle posed by the unearthing of two skeletons found at a dig they were working at the old Andersonville Prison. We go along with them as the secrets are unveiled, feeling the whisper of those gone beyond at the turning of every page.

The end was a pleasant surprise to me after an edge of the seat build up..I couldn’t have asked for better.
Yvonne is a very descriptive writer who reaches out to her readers and takes us with her into the web that snares us and brings us along. This is an in depth tale of the suffering of those who fought and gave the last full measure of devotion, and the families who came down through the years to breathe life into their legacy. Excellent read that won’t disappoint.

Brook Forest Voices the only Production Company to Create Audio Books

This past week I had the honor of being in  a competition I didn’t even know I had been entered in. Brook Forest Voices an audio production company had entered my historical fiction “A Voice From the Grave” into the CIPA EVVY awards. I got word on Monday that I have made it to the final six. I have no clue how many were entered in the audio category, but I do know there were 189 entries all total.

A Voice From the Grave won first place. The amazing thing is that Brook Forest Voices took home four awards – First place for A Voice From the Grave, Second Place for Just Beyond Harmony  third place for Looking Through a Keyhole and a Merit award for “Miri, Who Charms” by Joanne Greenberg.  .

This is an amazing feat for any publishing company especially one who does audio books. I am so proud to be a part of such a wonderful company. If you are looking for a company to publish your book in audio you need to contact Brook Forest Voices. I have never worked with such a friendly, professional group of people in all my writing career.

I so look forward to the next chapter in my life when they create DreamCatcher Failure Was Never an Option which is due to be released in August of this year.
