Thanks to Thomas Nelson, our 2018 roster includes THE CURSE OF CROW HOLLOW, a modern Gothic tale by Billy Coffey performed with the necessary Appalachian twang of its setting by Gabe Wicks. Listeners will rethink themselves the next time they consider gossiping about the neighbors, especially the ones who seem to be--well, is it mentally ill or cursed? Calling such people witches will definitely come off the table after experiencing what these four teens do when they decide to do some anti-neighbor trouble-making.
Each week of the SYNC program, you'll find the pair of featured titles on this website, and for each one you'll find some listen-alikes as well. For voracious listeners, these listen-alikes are the next ones to pick up if what the week's featured title offered piqued their interest. For collection developers and listening advisors, these listen-alikes offer suggestions, of course, for future local offerings. Check the page featuring THE CURSE OF CROW HOLLOW, for example, to see specific additional titles by the author or read by this narrator, as well as other thrillers featuring similar characters or situations.
One final bit of news this week to celebrate: just seven more weeks until SYNC 2018 is underway! Spread the word and thanks for joining us.
