The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.


I thought I’d give you an update on the progress of Devil’s Gambit, the audiobook.

As previously stated, I’m doing this through and they’ve been great to deal with. So much so, I’ll be creating an audiobook of Reliance next and will most likely be doing Devil’s Ante in the next few months as well.

We’re about halfway through the book right now and I’m very happy with the chapters to date. My reader has a great voice and delivers the story very well. I’d love to be sharing some of the samples with you but of course can’t just yet. Once the finished product is in my hot little hands (so to speak) I will be doling out some samples for you to check out.

It’s not a totally painless task as you, the author do have to go through your manuscript word by word as it’s read to confirm the accuracy of the audio product. I tend to do this once a week because it’s easier for me to get into my editor headspace to do this. As I’m doing a bunch of chapters at a time, this can take a couple of hours. This is what you get when you write a 110,000 word book.

I do like that Findaway handles the initial set up and then leaves you and the voice artist to get on with it for the middle bit. They’ll be stepping back in at the end to handle the distribution side of things and unlike my ebook and Createspace versions of my work, I will be going wide with the audiobook.

I hope to have the audiobook version out by the end of Spring. More on a fixed date as things shake out.
