Audiobooks Might Be On The Way

I’ve just posted Task Force Desperate on ACX for auditions to turn it into an audiobook. I don’t have the time or the setup to do it myself, so hopefully I can find a producer/narrator who is interested in giving it a shot for half the royalties. If anyone knows a vet who is working on getting into voice work who would be interested, please point them to TFD on ACX. If this works out, it will be out on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Fingers crossed.

Update: Realized it might help to include a link to ACX in case anyone is interested in trying out.  Go here and get set up if you’ve got an audio setup and time.  No guarantees I’ll accept, but what have you got to lose?

First Draft is Done

And, after 4,633 words worth of key-pounding today, I brought the first draft to a close.  It’s slightly longer than Alone and Unafraid, before editing, and my books tend to get slightly longer as editing goes on.

Whew.  A 123,455-word manuscript knocked out in sixty-five days.  I think I’m getting more practiced at this.

It’s still coming out on June 23rd.  For the Kindle readers, please go ahead and preorder (I’ll be getting the Nook and iBooks preorders up later; the manuscript has to be a bit further along before I can get it through the vetting process to get them on those platforms).  The reason I’m pushing the preorders is because they all hit at midnight the day it comes out.  That gives the book a good spike on Amazon’s stats, which gets it more visibility.  It’s one of the little tricks independent authors need to learn to actually get somewhere.

Now I’m going to go let my brain dribble out of my ear for a bit before I start editing…
