Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

So now that Base Spirits is out there in e-book form (Kindle and also Smashwords ), I am readying a print version. I will see the proof by week's end, which is very exciting. All things going to plan, I will be able to have a launch in my hometown of Stratford while the weather is still decent.

Stay tuned for that...

In the meantime, a producer friend has been in touch and wants to record an audiobook version. Since my 'day job' is writing described video for the visually impaired and I am a trained narrator, this seems a natural next step.

I am very glad that he found me, too. It feels right when opportunities just sort of present themselves. That has been a huge lesson in this entire journey so far-- if you build it, they WILL come! I haven't started any sort of marketing blitz as of yet, but in the works are blog interviews, reviews, cross promotions, and I've already done guest blogs,  had a feature e-magazine article here:!__portals, and a 'featured author' spot on a UK bookstore's page here: These things all found me, so God only knows what I'll find when I go looking in earnest.

And you, oh fellow authors? Has anyone out there had a chance to record their own words as an audiobook? I'd love to hear all about it. (Sorry-- terrible, unintentional puns are a family curse.)
