It’s officially official and I get to tell all of you about the amazing opportunity I’ve been given! I know all of you will be just as excited as I am. In August, I was approached by Findaway Voices. Findaway Voices is the world’s audiobook partner, revolutionizing the business of audiobooks since 2006. Today, Findaway delivers hundreds of thousands of titles to over 45 retailers and library partners worldwide.
They first disrupted the CD-focused world of audiobooks with Playaway, a built-for circulation audiobook player now used in 40,000 libraries, schools, and military installations globally. In 2013, Findaway advanced audiobooks in the downloadable and streaming space by launching Audio Engine, the industry’s largest B2B audiobook delivery platform. Now, Findaway enables every brand in the world to offer a complete audiobook collection to their customers and compete on a global scale. In 2016, with the goal of making every book in the world available as an audiobook, they launched Findaway Voices, an audiobook creation platform for independent authors and publishers.
Findaway Voices is launching a pilot program where they buy the rights for audiobooks and pay for the production from independently published authors (like myself). I was fortunate enough to be one of the authors they selected for the pilot program and I am ecstatic. Since the first week of September, I have woke up several times and thought “wow” and had to re-read the last series of emails to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.
Guess what? I wasn’t dreaming! Which means I have the pleasure to offer my readers not one audiobook, not even one series… but six audiobooks in two different series. If you’ve wondered why I’ve been dedicating so much time to making Tortured Dreams what it should be… here is your answer. Findaway Voices will be producing Tortured Dreams, Elysium Dreams, and Mercurial Dreams as audiobooks. Tortured Dreams will be revised to have killer chapters, which it desperately needs as well as fix some of my rookie mistakes. Reading it for editing has proven to me I am a much better writer than I was eight years ago.
Ah, the great announcement continues… Nearly all of you love the emotionless Aislinn Cain. However, three years ago I introduced you to a character completely her opposite; Soleil Burns the extremely emotional, easily annoyed half angel who swears more than an angel or even a half angel should with the release of Natural Born Exorcist Book 1 of the Nephilim Narratives. Along with the first three D&R books, Findaway Voices will be producing all three of the first Nephilim Narratives: Natural Born Exorcist, Oh My Wizard, and Demon Boxes.
And last, but certainly not least if sales of these audiobooks do well, there is the option to buy and produce more of them!
The revised version of Tortured Dreams will release in 2 parts. The audiobook will release first and then after a few months the ebook will be updated to match. I can’t give you release dates for any of the audiobooks yet… we haven’t even started auditions and frankly, I’m still writing killer chapters for Tortured Dreams. No worries, when I know, you’ll know. It won’t be 2020. Instead you’ll have to content yourself with reading the ebooks of Demon Boxes releasing at Halloween and Buried Dreams D&R #20 which will release in December. Oh and one last thing, I will have final say on the narrators!
Now, break out the boogie shoes and help me celebrate with the happy dance!
