If you love audio books or just love the art of verbal storytelling, you’ll love Fearless Reader Radio. Serialized dramas are a featured offering at RiverWest Radio, WXRW in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They are bringing back the art of old-time radio storytelling.
I’m thrilled that they are reading my supernatural mystery Night Sea Journey: A Tale of the Supernatural. Katie Jesse, host of Fearless Reader Radio, is skilled in dramatic reading. She is currently performing 1-hour episodes of the full novel, every Wednesday at 5 pm, week by week. The broadcasts are also archived on their internet radio page for convenient listening anytime.
As an author, this is a great way to really hear my story. While writing it, I did read major parts aloud for my own evaluations.
But hearing someone else read it is a different experience. It brings the story to a new level. And, I’m pleased to say, I’ve seen a moderate jump in sales.
Listeners can begin with Episodes 1 and 2:
Night Sea Journey, Episode One:
Night Sea Journey, Episode 2:

Night Sea Journey Reviews:
An Eric Hoffer Book Award Winner, 2015, this supernatural thriller explores the haunted chambers of the night. Artist Kip Livingston struggles against a dark visitor who invades her night sea journeys into subconsciousness. Angels and demons, psychological twists, murder, and romance make this mystery a gripping read.
“. . . a powerful page-turner – enigmatic, surprising, and completely engaging . . . a wild ride over dangerous and previously uncharted terrain.” – James Hulbert, A Kiss Before You Leave Me
“. . . a startling story that captures the reader from the first page, with strong character development and a robust vocabulary. Cappa’s characters are the kind the reader remembers long after the story has been read. Her dialogue flawlessly carries the story from one stage to the next.” – Judith Reveal, The Brownstone
“A suspenseful, romantic, mystical tale … Cappa’s superior writing skills, her ability to write this particular story to be so profound and thorough was perhaps one of the most impressive thing about the book.” – HorrorPalace.com
