There is a place just beyond the dream world where writers come to play. It is a mythical place located next to the Field of Gathered Imaginations.
In the land of Olde Country there resides a shoppe filled with ideas for the masses. But what happens when the ideas run out?

This was completely clever, and came with a surprise 2nd story! It takes a lot of talent to write short stories that are complete and well written....these 2 stories were both entertaining and left me wanting more of each...especially the 2nd one!!! Give this a listen, its quick and well worth your time! Great narration and story!!!

Ye Olde Idea Shoppe is a timeless work that has fun with itself. The characters are all larger than life cartoons with emphasized qualities that made them enjoyable. The literal-ization of an idea shop is fun and done in such a way you want to visit yourself. It reminded me of the best qualities of a small book store, one in which you find yourself browsing longer than you intended on staying.
The story is short but contained, letting the audience be satisfied with what they were given.
There is actually a second story following Ye Olde Idea Shoppe, which is completely different in tone and equally engaging. A story about a woman with supernatural abilities in a domestic setting. It's a simple concept also executed wonderfully.
I must say, the narration starts off a tad robotic, but once the story is in full stride the accent finds a pleasant groove. The free sample doesn't represent the quality of work in the full version.
I am a wee bit over the half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lo
This is an inventive little story about a shoppe that sells ideas.Maxine Lennon tells this story with flair.Sunshine works at the shoppe.Inventory is getting low.How to get new Ideas?"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast or MalarHouse dot com"
Yes I would recommend this to a friend. There were 2 stories instead of one and both were well written and very enjoyable.
Abagail. I would love to read more about her powers and life.
This is the first time I have listened to her and I really liked her accent and how she brought the characters to life.
Yes. I didn't want it to end and wish the author would write more. Very interesting characters and ideas that would make good full length books.

Ye Olde Idea Shoppe by Roberto Scarlato is an enjoyable short story, that will hopefully be developed into a full length novel. The story centers on a sales clerk who is basically distraught over selling the last original idea to a customer. Thankfully she is soon "saved" with a plethora of ideas.
I was pleasantly surprised by a bonus short about a mother who can split herself into two people and control things with her mind. I would have loved it if this story was much longer. It is such a great premise!
This story is narrated by Maxine Lennon, who did a great job and was very easy to listen to. I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an honest review.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
Sunshine works in an old bookshop of ideas. The store was running out of ideas. In fact, there was only one idea left. What to do? Then a man comes and insists on buying the last idea.
Next there was Abigail who was too perfect. She could split herself into two people and control things with her mind. She was able to make inanimate objects come to life. Very bewitching.
This book has two short stories. It was very unique. I liked it and found it to be very neat. I would've loved for it to be longer. I think Roberto Scarlato's a clever author to write these stories.
Maxine Lennon has a beautiful voice. She narrated this audiobook perfectly with spot on voice inflections. I'd like to hear more from her.

I enjoyed the artistic take on where one finds ideas, how valuable they become when they are in short supply, and how scary they can be when they are new to us. It was short, sweet, and well written. I enjoyed this quick read.
Maxine Lennon did a fine job with this narration. She has a smooth rhythm and great pacing.
I thoroughly enjoyed the snippet of Powerless. I would like to see what happens next.
