Six pledges of support for my fantasy audio book project
I've been encouraged by the fantasy readers who have pledged a contribution to help produce an audiobook of Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I. I set up a campaign at kickstarter.com to attract backers for this project. Audiobooks are very popular but expensive to produce because of all the many hours of recording necessary to transform a full length novel into an audiobook.
When Union of Renegades is completed as an audiobook, it will provide almost 20 hours of listening. That will certainly get some people through long car trips or shifts of boring work.
In addition to an audiobook, Union of Renegades will also be transformed into a serialized podcast novel distributed at iTunes and Podiobooks. I'm very excited about this because I think many new listeners will be introduced to my fantasy fiction at these media outlets.
A small company called Dark Fire will be doing the production work. One of the founders of Dark Fire, Collin Earl, is also an author who has been producing his own fiction as ebooks, books, and audiobooks, and I'm excited to be tapping into his expertise and that of his associates. Check out his novel Harmonics: Rise of the Magician.
To be among the first people to receive the final mp3 audiobook of Union of Renegades, please contribute to the project through Kickstarter. If you are interested in listening to my first fantasy novel as an audiobook, then snatch up this opportunity to basically name your price. All backers, regardless of amount pledged, will receive the audiobook as soon as it is ready, if my campaign reaches its funding goal of $1,000.
Please back my audiobook project, share the project at social media outlets, and email this blog post to your friends who might be interested.
