Book Randomness

Erin is in the Library

I'm so incredibly proud of her, I could just burst!

Audiobook of 122 Rules, Chapter 1

I've been toying with the idea of creating audiobook versions of my books. Well, this week I put my time and efforts where my mouth is and laid down chapter 1 of 122 Rules. The experience is both technical and artistic, so I got to geek out and have fun at the same time. I'll be writing up a how-to in a couple of weeks when I start recording the full-length version of Birth of an American Gigolo as well as my short, Norman and the Demon.

For now, you can enjoy the first chapter of 122 Rules right now. Head on over to the 122 Rules Homepage and scroll about halfway down, as yours truly does his best Monica and Jon Smith impersonations.
