The audiobook of A Reason to Live is a wrap and, to celebrate, I’m giving a free digital copy of the audiobook away. No purchase necessary and, since I’m doing this through Rafflecopter, there are multiple ways to enter to win, like Tweeting about the giveaway, Liking my Facebook page, reviewing one of my books, and so on.
Long-time readers of this blog might remember a wee bit o’ ire I’ve shown in the past for reviews of the one- and two-star variety, like the guy who gave me two stars for my Three Shorts anthology because it was “too violent, too scary”…even though it has bullets on the front cover and is sold in the Crime Fiction section.
If you read this blog, you probably know I’m in the process of making my first book, A Reason to Live, into an audio book through the Amazon site ACX.com. I’ve gotten several fantastic auditions from voice actors, and am a little stuck on how to proceed.
Got ten minutes? Listen to these voice samples from A Reason to Live, vote for your favorite and, if you want, give me a couple comments at the bottom of the page. It would be a huge help for me in making my decision (which I need to do before May 15 or so).
I’ve recently started poking my nose into the world of audio books. Now that I have a bona fide series out there, the investment of time seems more than worth it. Why not have another product on the line to meet readers’ wants and needs? 🙂
Many of you have heard of ACX (www.ACX.com), the Amazon division that functions as the audio arm in much the same way CreateSpace is the print arm for self-publishers. I took the plunge about a week ago and have started the process of “claiming” my book, getting ready to hear voice talent auditions, and taking the steps necessary to get the thing out in the wild.
