The Jersey – Audiobook Blog Tour

Audiobook Tour: The Jersey by James Rosenberg

Author: James Rosenberg

Narrator: Brian Avers

Length: 8 hours 44 minutes

Publisher: Allie H Publishing

Released: Nov. 21, 2019

Genre: Family Drama

Dan West wonders which is more important to him: Helping his long-time friend win back his business after being accused of stealing money from the company, or coaching his 11-year-old son’s soccer team trying to win an improbable championship. Money and prestige don’t motivate Dan. Rather, family, work and coaching soccer are the underpinnings of his life. He revels in the simple joys like hanging out with his wife Jill, mentoring a young lawyer at his firm, and watching the boys connect on three passes before drilling the ball into the back of the net. Dan always knew to keep it steady – not to get too high or he might get knocked off his perch. And he did, until he and the boys’ soccer team achieved unimagined success. Before he can grasp how good he has it, tragedy rips a hole in his family. James Rosenberg, author of the bestseller Legal Reserves, strikes a new chord in his exploration of what makes a life and how to put it back together after it is shattered. The Jersey is a beautifully written, profoundly touching, and relatable story of love, loss, and the redemptive power of a group of motivated 11-year-old kids.

James Rosenberg is a 3rd generation trial attorney with plenty of stories to tell. Inspired not only by the courtroom stories his father and grandfather used to tell him when he was a child, but also by the wild adventures he’s encountered through his own experience as a lawyer. James is fascinated by the intricate, interpersonal dynamics of every trial he’s endured. Whether it’s the raw emotion on display in court, the tension in the air that builds until someone wins, or the impact that a case’s decision has on the parties involved, James is always paying attention and keeping tabs on what’s happening. In his debut novel, “Legal Reserves”, James flexes his creative muscle outside of the courtroom to share his stories, with a fictional twist, through the eyes of archetypes he knows well. His second novel, “The Jersey,” explores the relationships a family-centric lawyer has with his wife and eleven year old son. A native of Pittsburgh and a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School and the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, James has been a trial attorney in Pittsburgh for almost 30 years. He started writing legal thrillers as a stress reducer and finds this creative outlet to be a fun and meaningful diversion from his day job. When he’s not trying cases, he’s either dreaming up his next book idea, spending time with his wife and three kids, or both.

Top 10 List
James Rosenberg’s Top Ten reasons for choosing Brian Avers (over a lot of other really good narrators) to be the voice of the audiobook:
  1. In his audition, it was clear he completely connected with the book.
  2. He kept telling me about his little boy and how that made him feel a kinship with Dan West, the main character, of The Jersey.
  3. Brian is wickedly funny.
  4. Brian has a great repertoire of voices and he uses many for all of the kids in the story, but also for the adults who he is able to characterize by using a variety of intonations.
  5. He was so easy to work with. He was efficient, organized and made the story even better by how he tells it.
  6. Brian made me feel good about the book. We kept going back-and-forth on email after every chapter and his insights into the book as he was narrating it provided me with confidence that this was going to be a great audiobook.
  7. He has so much experience. Not only with audiobooks, but he is an actor, director and producer. Brian gets the business and having his experience made the process so much easier.
  8. He is in demand. I felt lucky that Brian agreed to narrate the book. His schedule was full and he is asked to work on so many different projects, but he agreed to move some things around and got the book done quickly.
  9. He is willing to let his emotions out. There are some emotional ups and downs in the story. Brian brought out the humor at the appropriate times, but also was able to bring out the pain in the story. You can hear him get emotional, but even more important, you can feel his emotions.
  10. I want to work with him again. He is such a professional that he will be my first choice to narrate my next book. I just hope he is able to do it.

Before long, the snow covered everything. Luckily, the demarcation of the road was still visible, but it was impossible to see details. Unfortunately, no one else was close by, so if anything were to happen…
For the first time since she embarked on this journey, she wondered if she had made the right decision by not waiting. But she had been so eager to leave, to finally get away from Whiskey River, that she didn’t think. And if she would have waited until spring, she feared that she never would have left.
Suddenly, the buggy lurched, sinking down sideways into the road, jerking to a complete stop, nearly dumping her out onto the road.
Heart racing, she looked up to assess the damage and realized the buggy was pulling down sideways on Butterscotch. Millie tried to steady the load before Butterscotch got hurt, but it was getting the best of her.
She draped the reins over the front bar and hurried down from the buggy. “Don’t worry, girl. I’ll have you loose in just a minute.”
She struggled a bit on the harness, but soon Butterscotch was free. Millie led her off the road and tied her reins to a tree.
“Now, don’t be getting any bright ideas about running off,” Millie instructed. “I know we don’t know each other yet, but I don’t intend to chase you all over kingdom come.”
Butterscotch nodded and whinnied as if she had understood every word.
“Oh, no, I won’t either,” Millie threw over her shoulder, traipsing through the snow back to the buggy.
Butterscotch bobbed her head in response.
Millie placed her hands on her hips. “Well, one thing’s for sure. We won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.” She motioned toward the buggy. “Not in this, anyway.”
All of a sudden, Millie heard the pounding of horse’s hooves, muffled against the snow-covered road, coming up fast from the Laramie side. Luckily, it sounded like only one rider.
Millie searched for a place to hide, but there wasn’t any. She could have darted behind a tree, but with Butterscotch there and the buggy, she’d look like an idiot who was just trying to hide. Knowing she had to face this head-on, she straightened the coat over her dress and just hoped that whoever was coming was respectable and a gentleman.
