I'm proud to announce the release of Foreign Deceit (David Wolf Book 1) in audiobook format. I auditioned several narrators and chose Sean Patrick Hopkins, who is an actor living in New York City. I am very pleased with the finished product and we are moving forward on producing the next 8 books in succession.
Sean uses accents in his narration, which is not always welcome, in my opinion, unless the actor is good. Well, Sean is very good. If you've read the book, you know there are a LOT of accents in this one--rough Coloradan, Italian, eastern European, Queen's English, even a guy who speaks with an Italian accent tinged with British (What? Why did I write that guy in there?) ... and Sean pulls off every one of them.
add Audible narration to the book, Amazon allows you to read on your Kindle and listen on your Kindle App on your smartphone, seamlessly switching back and forth between the two activities with Whispersync. So you can listen in the car on the way to work, on the way back, then knock out 30 minutes of reading before you go to bed, then wake up and pick up with the audio back where you left off reading the night before.
Personally, I love audiobooks. My brother, father, and I used to drive up to Idaho every summer to visit relatives, and we always listened to at least one on the way up and one on the way back. Dirk Pitt, Poirot, and Reacher got us through many hours of driving through the desolate American west landscape.
It was listening to audiobooks that sparked my interest in reading when I was younger, and now that I look back on it, it was audiobooks that instilled the idea that being a writer would be fun.
So, having my own books in audio format is just so cool. I hope you enjoy them as well. I'll keep you posted on The Silversmith, Alive and Killing, and the rest of the Wolf series as they become available. Otherwise, I'm hard at work on the next book and I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for reading. (And now, thanks for listening!)
