Wherein the author completely screws up and then decides to read Chapter 2 as well…
I know it takes a stretch of the imagination, but yes, I screwed up. I completely misjudged the point where I broke up Part One and Part Two of Chapter 1 of the audiobook. As it turns out, there was only three pages of the chapter remaining from where I stopped reading in last week’s episode. I’m sure this foretells that I will eventually die of Chronic Stupidity in a trailer park in Yuma, but I was sort of moving in that direction anyway.
So, instead of creating a five minute podcast for Episode 13, I went ahead and read through Chapter 2 as well. Bonus! Will my publisher waterboard me for this? Potentially, but seeming as how it’s a long hot summer and trips to the beach are no longer allowed, I’m Ok with a little waterboarding. Just bring a bottle of Rosé to the session.
I should say that the first two chapters featured in these podcasts will not be the final versions you hear in the audiobook. I am creating a more “produced” version with other voice actors playing the characters in the book. I’ll also be featuring some extras in the audiobook, such as three original songs from Corbett Thomas’ (the main character) band, Reality Star – including his #11 Alternative Rock song, Sensitive Ponytail Guy.
If you’d like to pre-order the audiobook, it’s available exclusively on the Hurn Publications website. You can also pre-order the paperback there. I’m also looking for anyone who might be interested in being an ARC Reader for the book. What’s an ARC Reader? That’s a person who gets an advance copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
