Eden calling....

The audiobook version of The Eden Paradox was released about a week ago and is already doing well, nudging up next to its digital clone in one of the top ten categories in the UK, and sitting next to John Scalzi in the US. Very nice to see!

I was at a conference the past couple of days and people said 'You should bring it out in Audiobook', and for the first time I could simply say, 'it's done!'

Meanwhile, I've been listening to the book, and it's fascinating to hear all the different accents the narrator (Edward Mitchell) uses, and the way he 'acts' rather than simply reads the words. He really brings it to life like a good story-teller.

I've already decided not to stop with listening to my own books, I'm going to try out for some others as well, probably Children of Ruin by Adrian Tchaikovsky is first on my list.

The voice of Eden Paradox is coming...

At the end of September, all four books in the Eden Paradox series will be launched in audible format. For more information, and for pre-order, click here. Must admit, I can't wait to hear them. I was able to be involved in selecting the narrator, which was fun, fitting the voice to the style of the books. The final choice, Ed Mitchell, seemed a good fit for Micah in particular.

Meanwhile, the books are still selling strong, passed the 10,000 sales mark this year alone at the end of August, with most sales in the UK followed by the US. Micah and the rest of the gang are very happy about it!
