Good Times to Listen to An Audiobook:
On your commute
While folding laundry
In the bathroom
Less-Good Times to be Listening:
Jogging across busy intersections
Sleeping (though my brother debates this point; his preferred lullaby is the Lord of the Rings)
I’m leap-over-pyramids happy to announce that my dark fantasy Brood of Bones is now on Audible.
My Kickstarter rocketed through stretch goals, one of which invoked the production of this audiobook. A reader and supporter of the fundraiser helped me pick the best voice actress for the story, Henrietta Meire. She could capture Tethiel’s ominous deadpan and Hiresha’s sleepy observations. The direction notes for a dark lord in foppish clothing baffled the other actresses. Not so for Henrietta Meire, and I am additionally grateful for her patience in voicing over revisions. As you might imagine, the eerie tones of Bright Palms provided additional challenges.
Kickstarter supporters can download the audiobook from my project update page, but it’s something of a trial. Given the file size, downloading Brood of Bones is like juggling an elephant. I’ve come to appreciate the convenience of Audible’s interface. The book will also be distributed to iTunes and Podiobooks. I plan to create audio recordings of it for YouTube as well.
