OliverTwist-webThe Audio Publishers Association (APA) announced the winners of the 2014 Audie Awards at its 19th Annual Audies Gala on May 29 at the New York Academy of Medicine in New York City. Often referred to as the “Oscars of spoken word entertainment,” the awards saw more than 1,100 submissions in 30 categories.

Oliver Twist, a Focus on the Family Radio Theatre production and Tyndale House Publishers, received the Audie in the Audio Drama category.

The Charles Dickens’ classic was adapted by Paul McCusker and read by Joe Holgate, Henry Goodman, Bill Sykes, Geoffrey Palmer, Roy Hudd, Finty Williams and full cast.

The production was recorded on location in London with an award-winning cast and a full-sound original music score.

Leadership Secrets of the Salvation Army received the Audie Award in the Business/Educational category. Written by Robert Watson and published in print by Mission Books, the eChristian book was voiced by Bob Souer.

“I believe I will remember that moment for the rest of my life,” Souer wrote on his blog, bobsouer.com.

Cory Verner, publisher and president of eChristian and christianaudio, was “thrilled and honored” with the win.

“The recognition for this title is truly appreciated and a testimony to the ministry of the Salvation Army, excellent writing from Retired National Commander, Commissioner Robert A. Watson and co-writer Ben Brown, and the outstanding narration of Bob Souer,” Verner said. “This is an important book with timeless principles that will positively influence businesses who desire to broaden their impact and efficiency.”

Hachette Audio’s A Story of God and All of Us by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (FaithWords) and read by Keith David and the authors took home the Audie in the Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction category.

Two other Hachette Audio titles of interest that won the award are David and Goliath written by Malcolm Gladwell (Little, Brown and Co.) and read by the author (Nonfiction) and Keeping Hope Alive written by Nobel Peace Prize nominee Hawa Abdi (Grand Central Publishing), known as “the Mother Teresa of Somalia,” and read by Robin Miles (Inspirational/Faith-Based Nonfiction).
