Mary Gould, founder, is a self-proclaimed audio book junkie and owns more than seven dozen audio books. Not a fan of flying, she first became addicted to audio books while driving. Listening to these audio books kept her alert and made the drives fun and interesting.
Sources for stories are unpublished manuscripts written by contemporary authors with histories of published works and/or exceptional talent. Audio story categories are not limited, but criteria for acceptance are. All stories must be captivating, compelling and consuming.
“Our short story audio singles keep pace with the fast-moving lifestyle of today and provide a new publishing market for the longer story,” says Gould.
“Our intent is to introduce our short story audios to a new group of listeners; individuals who have smaller windows of time for listening or who just want to enjoy a short story in audio format.”
Popular CDs currently include: “Darktown Strutters” by L.A. Wilson, Jr., a tale where the main character is in love with his boss’s girlfriend, and he plays one adversary against the other in a scheme to save his life and to keep the woman he loves; and “Rumors” – a suspense/thriller – by E. Jean Beres, where a small-town lawyer is fed up with a local businessman; he envies the power he wields and has a plan to get the position he wants.
Founded in January 2008, Mind Wings Audio produces and publishes innovative audio entertainment products for story lovers everywhere. Stories are performed by professional voice actors – some are recipients of the audio industry’s prestigious awards.
