I was recently talking (emailing) with Pamela DuMond, author of a very funny rom-com audiobook I narrated titled “Part-Time Princess, Ladies In Waiting: Book One.”
You know you have a good author/narrator relationship when you check in on each other regularly. She’s currently writing the sequel to Part-Time Princess which is exciting because it means we’ll be working together again and I get to live a bit longer in the heroine’s life. Hers is a very funny, feel-good ride.
In the meantime, Pamela has asked me to take over narrating The Annie Graceland Mysteries series. Here’s an excerpt from her blog:
“In HAPPY Audible Book News:
Lesley Fogle, the enormously talented narrator for Part-time Princess: A Romantic Comedy, will be taking over new Annie Graceland narrator duties. Lesley’s getting her feet wet with Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats. I can’t wait to share to her spin on this story with all of you… Hilarious!”
I’ve read Pamela’s Messenger time-travel series but was not familiar with The Annie Graceland Mysteries series. I’m now taking a crash course in the previous books and prepping “Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats.” Here’s an overview of the series and Book 6:
The Annie Graceland Mysteries
Annie Graceland’s a baker with a pinch of psychic ability. She’s empathic; feels other people’s lusts, urges and desires in her own body. Usually it’s simple — someone’s craving chocolate, or lusting after the wrong guy. But since Annie discovered she can see and talk with ghosts, her life became a little more complicated…
Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats (AG, #6)
Annie Graceland has a pinch of psychic ability. It turns out her cat, Theodore, does too!
Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats is a hilarious, pet-friendly cozy mystery, told through the eyes of the cats, the dog, and Annie.

PART- TIME PRINCESS: LADIES-IN-WAITING BOOK 1 is laugh out loud funny. Full of quirky characters that you will adore, this is a not to miss story. Lesley Ann Fogle does a fantastic job with the different voices and makes a great story a joyful experience to listen to.” • “Fun Fairytale Read!!! I absolutely loved the narrating by Lesley Ann Fogle, it turned a great book into a fun enjoyable story. This is such a refreshing entertaining book and I really enjoyed it so much I finished in one sitting. The characters are very well developed and likable, I really enjoyed Lucy she was fun. This is my first book by Pamela DeMond and it will not be my last, she is an amazing author.” • “5 Stars! Very Sweet!” • “This is a snort out loud funny book” • “Great job to the narrator” • “Lesley Ann Fogle’s narration of Part-time Princess is wonderfully appropriate. She has the lightness of voice to be appropriate to an adrift 20-something and invested Lucy with a wonderful personality. There were moments where it seemed the narrator was really enjoying the work and embodying the fish out of water, Lucy.”
