In just two weeks, my story Pre-screening Test will be out as part of the GameLit Expansion Pack. You can pre-order it now. As a teaser, an excerpt of that story, called VR & PR has been turned into an audio book like production for Flash Fiction Friday by Immortal Works Press. Read by Jon Grundvig. It’s available on the IW #FFF website, or on YouTube. Give it a listen!
Happy Halloween! Trick or treat? Okay, have a free audio book of my short horror story: The Thing I Hate. Read by the amazing Jon Grundvig. It’s about a ghoul.
Long ago I entered this story into an online contest. It won. Since then I’ve had it available free to read on my page. Recently, however, Immortal Works featured it on the Flash Fiction Friday podcast. So you can listen to the whole thing in just 6 minutes. That’s not very long, considering it might make you rethink your whole life.
Now Available: Schism Audiobook!
Actually, I have to confess, it’s been out for a while. The reader, Zach Bjorge, has an amazing voice talent. You won’t want to miss this story. It’s shorter than most books, so the audiobook is only about as long as a movie… a really great action movie!
On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun.
In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake’s airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
If you start a new Audible account, you can get it FREE! If you don’t want one of those, just buy the e-book and then you can get it via whispersync.
Now available: Windows into Hell Audiobook! It’s been a long road. The readers (Tonya Adolphson and Raphael Boivin) for the audiobook version were actually done soon after the book’s release, but due to editing and uploading issues, it took this long to get it on Audible. It’s worth it, though! You can get it for just $17.46 (or just use your Audible credits).
I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately. The one I’m currently in the middle of is Armageddon in Retrospect by Kurt Vonnegut, read by Rip Torn. I’ve had mixed feelings about various readers, but Rip Torn is obviously awesome. Maybe someday I’ll try to read something of my own (more than just with the Freestyle Gargoyles).
I have two more audiobooks in the works. Schism read by Zach Bjorge is already done, but has a few technical glitches holding it up. It should be available next. Also, I’m in contracting for Theocracide to be read by Raphael Boivin through FJP. After that I plan to get Salvation out on audio. So it’s happening. 🙂
I couldn’t be more pleased with how well Windows into Hell has been doing in Audiobook. First day out and it hit #53 on two Amazon charts. It’s dropped a little, but it’s still in the top 100 for both categories as I write this. So, get it while it’s hot!
My short story, The Dark Glass, is now available in audio format as a podcast from Immortal Works, read by the amazing Jason King. They do a weekly short story audio called Flash Fiction Friday. You can subscribe on iTunes (and you should!) or get it here:
This story has also been published in two different anthologies…
They went with a different cover, but it’s the same Actuative goodness. The audiobook is $24.99 on Audible, but if you have the e-book already, you can get the audio through Whispersync for just $3.49! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out you should buy the e-book, then the audiobook either way. The book on CD is $29.99. Either one, comes out February 28.
I haven’t listened to it yet, but I’m super excited for my first audiobook to be out!
