The audiobook version of A Warrior’s Knowledge (book 2) is done, but it still has to go through a final round of sound checks. I have no idea how long that will take, but I’m told it can be up to 10-14 business days. Then, it’s released on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. We’re on day 3 today. Sigh.
I’m updating the appearance of both the ebooks and print versions of books 1 and 2. The story itself remains the same, but the presentation of the words is so much prettier now. Here’s a glimpse of what the ebooks will look like. The print version is even nicer. They should be ready to go early next week. That reminds me: I should take the print version off the market for now.
The audiobook for A Warrior’s Knowledge should go into production next week. Even better, once again, Nick Podehl is the narrator!
Listen to what she says at the 5:57 mark. I wonder if Orson Scott Card knows she’s a fan of his writing.
i’d take a one way ticket to that world as long as I don’t land in Westeros. Or Mordor. Or Lankhmar. Or…nevermind. I’ll just visit every now and then. That’s what books are for, right?
Haven’t had much time to read lately (busy writing), which is never fun, but I did enter a couple of book giveaways. First, at SFFWorld.com, I entered for a chance to win Tony Peak’s sci-fi novel, Inherit the Stars. It sounds exactly like my kind of space opera. I also entered a chance to win Red Rising by Pierce Brown – kinda a mashup between Hunger Games and Mars colonization at Goodreads
I’m going to give away both the ebook and audiobook versions of my short story collection, Stories from Arisa, for anyone who signs up for the newsletter from my website. This is the short story collection set in Arisa, the world of A Warrior’s Path. Jacob Cooper (a wonderful author in his own right. Here’s his website: http://www.circleofreign.com/reign/) is going to do the narration. Why him instead of Nick Podehl? Well, mostly because Jacob’s got a great voice and is trying to build a career as a narrator. This just felt like the right thing to do in order to help support someone who’s also trying to make it in this strange world of writing.
I’ll have more information about that soon.
BTW Nick is still doing the audiobook for A Warrior’s Knowledge and A Warrior’s Penance (the working title of book 3). And speaking of book 3, I just passed 115k words. The first half only needs one or two passes to get it right, and I figure I’m about 55-65k words from the end.
Just an update. Hoping to start production of the audiobook version of A Warrior’s Knowledge in late October. Now, back to writing book 3, A Warrior’s Penance. I’m at the part where Rukh and Jessira almost…
SFFWorld.com was the first fantasy/scifi forum I discovered waaaaaay back in 2003. It’s also where I still oftentimes lurk and occasionally comment (I check the threads about once a day). It was an absolute thrill to be interviewed by the folks over there.
