    Flank Hawk now available as an Audiobook

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by TWErvin2, Mar 3, 2012.

    Cool news, or at least I think so.

    My first novel, Flank Hawk, published in October of 2009 is now available as an audiobook, read by Michael Slusser.

    It was a pretty neat experience having one's work performed/transformed into the spoken word. I know some members here have read and enjoyed Flank Hawk. Members who enjoy audiobooks, consider giving it a try.

    It's available through Audible.com, iTunes and Amazon.com. If you're interested, you can find the direct links on my blog here: Links for Flank Hawk audio version

    If you visit any of the vendors, you can listen to a sample to get a taste for what's there.

    The process was interesting as my publisher allowed me to listen auditions and give the final okay to move forward. I then listened to the full reading, checked for errors, mispronunciations (such as names or places) and the like, to be corrected. It took a bit of time but it went by quickly, being both fun and an interesting experience. The second novel in my fantasy series has been contracted for audio, but the reader (Slusser) has several books slated ahead of Blood Sword. So it'll be a short while.

    If you have any questions about the process, let me know.

    Wow that's awesome, I'm hoping to submit a script or two by the end of the year. Hopefully, I'll be able to follow your lead.

    Thanks, Lydia. :)

    Mootz, I don't know much about script writing, but from what I've heard it's challenging and competitive. A solid script with a little luck--so wishing you luck!

    Pheonix Hikari, thanks for the congrats. Just keep pushing forward, writing, revising and editing, and then working to find your project(s) a home. It's a good feeling to have folks read (and for me, now listen) what one's worked hard to complete. That's what storytelling's all about.
