SoundFridge inks contract to produce “From Maid to Duchess” by Regina James

From Maid to Duchess by up-and-coming independent author Regina James is a sweet retelling of the classic Cinderella tale.  Following Evelyn, a kind-hearted orphan who lives in 19th-century London with her overly-ambitious stepmother, the story is a moving romance about the power of love to heal broken hearts – and homes.  Will she capture the heart of the Duke of Langley, a tragic widower and doting father of twins who has vowed never to love again?

From Maid to Duchess is a clean romance in the second-chance romance category.  It is SoundFridge’s second novel (after The Ghost Factory)  and the first romance title that I have produced.  A private collaboration, audiobook distribution is to be announced.

SoundFridge produces audiobook of “See, Hear & Feel!” for Lerner Press

Originally published in the Republic of Korea, See, Hear, and Feel! is a charming children’s picture book that gives a quick tour of the human body by comparing it to familiar animals.  Children learn that we smell with our nose, but a dog smells 1000 times better, or that we touch our mothers’ faces with our skin, and the skin is the largest organ in the body!

Lerner Press, an educational publisher in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is publishing the book by arrangement with big and SMALL Publishing.  They produced the original book in collaboration with the department of education of Chungcheongnam-do Province in South Korea for use in public schools.  The book was written by by Min-ji Jeong with illustrations by Joo-yun Lee.  Editing of the English edition was provided by Joy Cowley.[pullquote]This is SoundFridge’s third collaboration with this client.[/pullquote]
