Four of Elizabeth’s classic audiobooks have gotten brand new looks, as you can see from these beautiful covers. These projects were produced for Spoken Realms, where Elizabeth is a featured voice artist.

Carmilla: A Vampire Tale by J.S. LeFanu

Carmilla is a vampire novella by J. S. LeFanu published more than twenty years before Stoker’s Dracula. In this chilling tale, a young English girl growing up in an isolated castle is preyed upon by a seductive female vampire.

This production has received multiple 5-star reviews at Audible. One reviewer notes that Elizabeth “is actually my favorite female reader, and I’ve enjoyed quite a bit of great stories read by her in the past. Her voice is calm and soothing and she always manages to keep me interested no matter what. The fact that she was the reader was the main reason why I wanted this audiobook!”

The Girl Who Sat By the Ashes by Padraic Colum

This Irish version of the Cinderella story is a classic fairy tale as you have never heard it before. Master storyteller and folklorist Padraic Colum creates a completely unique world of enchanted woods, marauding giants, gossiping geese, and a supernatural cloak made of crow feathers. Through her many adventures, Maid-Alone, Colum’s heroine, remains steadfast in her quiet strength and wisdom. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this magical retelling of a familiar legend.

This audiobook also has multiple 5-star reviews at Audible.

Monday or Tuesday by Virginia Woolf

Monday or Tuesday is a captivating introduction to Virginia Woolf, one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. These eight tales by the author of Mrs. Dallowayand To the Lighthouse reveal her early experiments in the art of fiction. The stories convey tantalizing glimpses of uncommon yet everyday characters: a ghostly couple reliving their marriage in a haunted house, the members of a feminist society trying to figure out their purpose in life, an aspiring novelist writing the life of a stranger she meets on a train, and the various passersby in London’s Kew Gardens on a July day. With wit, insight, and beautiful prose, Woolf captures the strange and wonderful movements of “an ordinary mind on an ordinary day”.

An Audible listener writes, “Elizabeth Klett presents a beautiful rendering of Virginia Woolf’s collection of short stories. The stories themselves are curious and occasionally abstract as Woolf brings to light the difficulties and paradoxes of the lives of women in early 20th century society. Klett’s reading is clear and expressive, but not overdramatic as her voice is able to capture the subtleties and ironies of Woolf’s often challenging writing. She renders Woolf’s abstract prose accessible to the average listener and captures the sheer beauty of Woolf’s writing.”

The Mysterious Key and What it Opened by Louisa May Alcott

This suspenseful novella focuses on the dark secret that haunts the aristocratic Trevlyn family since the untimely death of Sir Richard Trevlyn. His widow keeps the key to the mystery inside a locket, which she never takes off. When a charming stranger with ulterior motives gains access to Lady Trevlyn and her young daughter, will he unlock the family secrets along with their hearts? Fans of Alcott’s Little Women and her heroine Jo March’s racy stories will delight in this Victorian sensation novel.

This audiobook has multiple 5-star reviews, and an Audible listener writes, “Elizabeth Klett is consistent in her work and a ‘go to’ narrator for me. She is outstanding at adding dimension and personality to each character with her narrative style. She’s always a pleasure to listen to and easy to follow.”

The final two books in the Angela Marchmont Mystery Series by Clara Benson are now available as audiobooks from Libro.fm. Book 9 is The Scandal at 23 Mount Street and Book 10 is The Shadow at Greystone Chase. Elizabeth narrated the previous books in this 1920s British cozy mystery series, all of which are available at Libro.fm and Audible. (The new books should be available at Audible sometime in the next few months.)

The Scandal at 23 Mount Street

When an unwelcome figure from her past turns up unexpectedly, Angela Marchmont has no idea that she is about to become the most notorious woman in Britain. Forced to reveal secrets she has kept to herself for many years and which she had thought were safely buried, Angela faces a fight for her very life which she looks almost certain to lose without the help of the man she loves. But what hope does she have when the one man who can save her is the one man who has every reason to abandon her to her fate?

The Shadow at Greystone Chase

After her bruising encounter with the law, Angela Marchmont has vowed to give up detecting, and is doing her best to forget the events of last winter and the terrible lie she told to save herself. So when a letter arrives from beyond the grave requesting her help and reminding her of the past, she is anything but pleased. Drawn reluctantly into one final case and spurred on by her guilty conscience, Angela soon discovers a viper’s nest of family betrayals and hidden enmities which have lain undisturbed for years, and which may have led to the deaths of more than one person. Despite her unwillingness to reopen old wounds, Angela knows she must put aside her own feelings and solve the mystery if she is ever to find peace. Can she get to the heart of the matter, right the wrong she has done and be happy at last?

Each of the Angela Marchmont books contains a standalone mystery which is resolved at the end. However, if you are new to the series, please note that Book 10, The Shadow at Greystone Chase, contains spoilers from Book 9, The Scandal at 23 Mount Street and is to some extent a sequel, and we therefore advise reading the two in order.

Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of the final audiobook in the Companion Series by Tanya Bird: The Rebel’s Queen, now available at Libro.fm. This is the sixth and last installment in the compelling medieval romance series, produced through Findaway Voices. The rest of the audiobooks in the series are available at Libro.fm, Audible, and elsewhere.

A rising king. A falling queen. An unimaginable love.

Queen Cora is married to a monster. Three years she has played wife, and all she has to show for it is a marked face, an empty womb, and a bitter taste in her mouth best washed away with wine. It is a good thing she is made of something solid, because marriage is a life sentence. Or is it? The rebel prince is coming for the crown. Powers will shift, and loyalties will be tested. As Cora’s future unravels, she must fight to keep hold of her position, her sanity—and most definitely her heart.

Brom is leader of the Nydoen people, a mountain rebel—and next in line to rule. His brother is self-destructing, and the time has come to replace him. He has the love of a kingdom and a clear path to the throne, but not everyone wants him to succeed. War is coming. He is going to need allies if he stands any chance against his enemy. The one they call Ice Queen might be the key. Experienced, intelligent, well-connected. Intoxicating. If he can just find a way to thaw her solid heart, she may prove to be his greatest ally yet.

This is the sixth and final book in The Companion series. If you enjoy a medieval tale with a strong heroine and plenty of action, then you will love The Rebel’s Queen.

Love is for the weak of mind.

Astra is queen of the Companion world. She has been at the king’s side for 10 years, but his interest is waning. If she can just hold on a little longer, she will take her rightful place as mentor and never share a man’s bed again. But a single game of cards threatens to bring her future to ruins. The king’s wager is a brutal reminder that she is replaceable, disposable – a prize to be won. Now, she must find a way to survive outside the castle until she can find a way back inside its walls.

Dion is captain of the Galen army – a soldier, a humanitarian, and possibly…a traitor. He does not believe in people as property, so the concept of a companion is confronting. Mistress or slave? He cannot decide. The king’s companion seems content enough with her eternal smile and ability to command a room with just a tilt of her head and flash of blue eyes, but he sees past the painted face and rehearsed laughter.

She is broken. She is fire. And a game of cards later, she is entirely his problem.

This is book five in The Companion series. If you enjoy a moving love story set in a medieval world, then you will love The Captain’s Prize.

Trigger warning: This book contains violence and dark themes.
