If you are a teacher or an author or a bookseller or librarian or reviewer or audiobook reader or anyone else who deals with books in any capacity, you need to know about the Teachingbooks.net website.

Most specifically, you need to bookmark this page: THE AUTHOR NAME PRONUNCIATION GUIDE.

On this page is a list of authors. Click on the author’s name and it will take you to a brief audio file in which the author him/herself pronounces his/her name and then tells you a little bit about it.

When I was emailed and asked to be part of this pronunciation guide, I went over to check it out and spent over an hour clicking on my favorite authors. I didn’t even put a dent in the glossary.

This is an incredibly valuable website, and I’m not saying that lightly.
