Schism Audiobook

Schism Audiobook

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!

Preview:

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.

Enjoy!

Book Review: Gerald and the Amulet of Zonrach

Gerald

I’m thrilled to announce the release of Gerald and the Amulet of Zonrach by Carl Hackman!

Summary:

In the realm of Wyverndawn, a wizard’s height is the mark of his power, and shrinking an entire inch is disastrous for twelve-year-old Gerald.

Looking for promotion of an inch or two, Gerald attempts to create a village landmark using his superior wizarding skills. But the spell he bought – from a guy who knows a guy – is a tad more powerful than he anticipates. The resulting earthquake breaks off a chunk of Wyverndawn from the rest of the realm allowing Vabalaz, a highly dangerous wizard, to escape from prison.

A red-faced Gerald is banished from his village and, to complete his shame, is demoted another inch; two more and he’s likely to become a Royal Equine Poop Disposal Coordinator. Gerald’s questionable acquisition of a certain golden amulet could be the answer to his problems. But when Vabalaz discovers it may also be the key to creating his elite wizard realm, Gerald is elevated to evil wizard’s enemy number one.

Gerald’s hopes of returning home hinge on repairing the damage to Wyverndawn and thwarting Vabalaz’s plans. Failure could mean Gerald’s next spell might well be his last.

My Review:

A fantastic mix of quirky and serious, Gerald is a fun character with a lot of heart. Hackman’s premiere delivers a surprisingly powerful feel good story you won’t want to put down.

You won’t want to miss this amazing story. Get it now!

Windows into Hell Audiobook

WiH Audiobook Cover

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!

AML Award Finalist!

Today the Association for Mormon Letters announced their finalists. Windows into Hell is one of three short story compilations in the finals! You can see the others at their website. The award ceremony is April 22 at Utah Valley University. Now I’ll be nervous for seven weeks, but in a good way.  🙂

Maybe that’s why it’s back on the Amazon charts at #14 in Horror Anthologies.

Chaos Chronicles Paperback

chaos-chronicles-wrap-cover

Now available in paperback! The Actuator 3: Chaos Chronicles

This book includes amazing stories by 9 authors. It isn’t “optional” like the Borderlands Anthology, though. These stories are machine monks, separated from the main group, and their struggles after the saboteur comes back to wreak more havoc on the world. It’s part of the main story line, so you absolutely must read it before the series climax comes out later this year. If you are following the Actuator series and only want your books in paper, the time has finally arrived.

Actuator Audiobook!

The Actuator: Fractured Earth is now available as an Audiobook! Read by Roger Wayne of Tantor Audio, you can get it on Audible or as a book on CD.

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!
