Ever wonder what writers want to know about audiobooks? Maggie Stiefvater quizzed two of the narrators who have voiced her books Linger, and Forever. Be sure to read the whole interview on Stiefvater’s Words on Words blog, but here’s how it starts:

One of the most fascinating parts for me as an author has been the non-printed word ramifications of my novels — the music, the art, the fans sending me plays they’ve done of Shiver (true story). Audiobooks fall squarely in that category in my mind. Scholastic Audio does all of my audiobooks at this point, and starting with LINGER, they began to use my music in the audiobooks and ask me for input on the voice actors. By FOREVER, when they needed another voice actor to read Shelby’s prologue, they asked if I wanted to be that voice.

Cool, yes?

I will answer for you. YES. Those of you who have listened to the audiobooks to this point know that Cole’s voice is gritty and wonderful, Sam really sings the songs, Grace becomes wryly funny, and Isabel becomes the most sarcastic person alive. A few months ago, I was lucky enough to score interviews with two of the voice narrators, and here they are.
