  3. Emily...this is crap! Your voice is perfect for this piece and I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. This bozo probably listened for 5 min.
    I'm truly pissed off!

  4. Well, I'm sure it's not for everyone, but that's okay! If I considered my style any more closely I think I'd turn inside out.

  5. I am a new listener that found it on Podiobooks. I for one think you have nailed the nostalgia of not only the voice but the music as well. Thank you for sharing this deep adventure

  8. All caught up Emily, very captivating. I felt a little lost on the chapter when the letters where being read, but I understand the concept and it did let me get to know her from a personal standpoint. Thank you again for sharing this personal journey.

  10. Hey! I visited and like your site. Have to check out the podcasts!

    Oh, and there are 15 audio episodes in Nobody's Property...so we're 2/3 of the way there. Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier.

    Thank you for the helpful feedback. Was it the letters of condolence part where you felt lost? Or the part where I read letters from Jenny and her friends? I think I could've done a better job navigating that for listeners.

  11. Thanks for the visit and sorry for not keeping up, the kids are out and spring break has started. To answer your question it was mainly the bounce between the 2. If I had to choose 1 I would say it was the letters from friends, since we had not heard any of the names or backgrounds. In saying that Emily, keep in mind it may very well seem flawless in the written form. Thank you for your response and looking forward to more stories. Have a great day.

    Take care,
    Em

  13. Emily, I liked the book a lot. Well done. That last chapter brought a roundness to the book and the imagery was marvelous.

  14. This story grabbed my attention right from the beginning. With the intimacy of the story, I began to feel like I had a genuine personal relationship with the family. This book is well written and read by the author. There are many profound thoughts and observations appearing throughout the story. I go to California for vacations and loved the descriptions of life in Southern California. The letters of condolences audio recording is incredibly powerful and very moving emotionally. In the middle of the book I wanted to know more about the author's feelings while writing and doing the audio the book. Was this difficult? Did the project help with self-identity? While this book is a dedication to your father, is this also a family legacy project? I found partial answers to my questions later in the story. I loved the music that is weaved well with the story. The autopsy report was gruesome, but necessary for us to hear. The final lesson I learned is that one make peace with the unknown and have a sense of closure with a mysterious and disturbing death of a teenager. The e-mail exchanges with Tom were great and expressed a free spirit lifestyle. Thank you for this great audiobooks and I enjoyed at Podiobooks.com.

  15. Abbie, you made my morning! Thank you for your thoughtful comments and questions. I find this is a story that just doesn’t end for me. I guess the central struggle comes from wanting to free myself and let go, and on the other hand wanting to know about Jenny/Rose as a person and to let her be known for how she lived and not how she died. And yes, it was and is difficult! Like living in California, where you find yourself constantly compelled to let go of the past while continuing to yearn for what you know will soon be gone….

    I am so happy you enjoyed the book!
