At Audible, we know stories have the power to transport and uplift, and I hope that this slate of titles will bring comfort and an easier summer for many,” Sawlani said.

Durjoy Dutta, Author, Last Boy To Fall in Love & Last Girl To Fall in Love, said“For authors and creators, the audio medium opens up a new form of storytelling and allows us to not only share our written words, but also bring our characters to life through voice and sound. It also gives listeners the freedom to visualise the narrative and characters through their own imagination, which is incredibly exciting.

“I’m happy to be part of this slate of titles available to members because it means my books will be made available to a much wider audience, and also that my fans who enjoy listening to my audiobooks, will have access to many other great titles, for no additional cost,” Dutta said.

“Screen fatigue has become extremely prevalent, making “Non-screen” entertainment like audio a welcome reprieve to our eyes, while we multitask and go about our daily chores. This offering from Audible gives members access to so many exciting titles and genres to listen to and I’m glad that my title “Dil Local” is one of them,” Dubey said.
