Audiobooks Coming!

audibleWhen I announced Unfettered more than a year ago, I received several questions from hundreds of people but one of them had me worried:

Will you be producing an audiobook?

I didn’t know what to say. I wanted to but how to do it? I am wholly ignorant with audio work. I can put together a beautiful hardcover—that’s my skill set—but how to do an audiobook? It’s nothing I’ve done before. I have a terrible voice. And I know no voice actors. I certainly don’t have equipment. And how to put it out there? It was a scary thing. I knew I had to do something about it though. The amount of people writing into the website asking meant that it mattered.

So when my agent decided to take Unfettered to other/foreign markets, I made sure to include my desire to see the book be translated to audio. And thankfully, my agent went above and beyond.

And several parties were interested.

Today, I can report that Audible.com has purchased the rights to not only produce an audiobook of Unfettered but also an audiobook of The Dark Thorn! Audible is an industry-leading audiobook producer. I’m thrilled they deemed Unfettered and The Dark Thorn worthy for the treatment and I’m excited to see what they do with both!

Mostly because now I breathe a sigh of relief. A whole segment of people who “read” while driving or working can now enjoy Unfettered and The Dark Thorn!

More news when I have it. There are no dates yet.

Stay tuned!

UPDATE August 24, 2013: It will take three months or so from the moment I sign the contract for the audiobooks to be completed and released. Here’s hoping we can make this available for the holiday season!
