AudioGO Announces Five Nominations in the 2013 Audie Awards
AudioGO has received five nominations for the 2013 Audie Awards, the most prestigious awards ceremony in the audiobook world, including Best Solo Narration-Female, Best Thriller/Suspense, Best History, and two nominations in the Best Mystery category. AudioGO's previous wins include entries in 2012's Best Audio Drama (I, CLAUDIUS), Best Nonfiction (THE MURDER OF THE CENTURY), and Best Package Design (Jane Austen: CLASSIC BBC RADIO PRODUCTIONS) categories.
Receiving two nominations for Best Solo Narration - Female and Best Thriller/Suspense is THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE, written by Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis and narrated by Katherine Kellgren. This gripping debut thriller (also in print from Soho Press), featuring Red Cross Nurse and humanitarian Nina Borg, was a global bestseller first and became a US hit when it was published in November 2011. The stunning sequel, INVISIBLE MURDER, was recently released in print and audio in November 2012.
Two AudioGO titles also dominate the Best Mystery category this year, with Chuck Greaves' HUSH MONEY (narrated by Dan Butler) and Chris Ewan's THE GOOD THIEF'S GUIDE TO VEGAS (narrated by Simon Vance) earning nominations. Also, Tim Brady's TWELVE DESPERATE MILES narrated by Joe Barrett, garnered a slot in the Best History category for its epic account of General Patton's World War II invasion of North Africa and its aftermath.
