Audio TOL

I got some clarification about the status of the audio version of The Other Lands (Acacia, Book 2). The disc version is, of course, available. (HERE, for example.) But it's the version that people most often ask me about. I just learned from Tantor that they've sent the discs to them and they expect for the Audible version to be ready by the end of the month. Doesn't mean that will happen, but here's hoping.

I've also been a bit frustrated that neither the audio or the Kindle version show up on the main Amazon page along with the hardcover. Apparently, the titles were slightly different, and in Amazon's automated world it's not easy to get things like that fixed. But hopefully it will be eventually, and everything will be available on the same page!

Great to hear that things are still rocketing upward. Your cross-genre success prompted me to mention you and quote your blog in an article that I wrote for my new cross-genre online publication.I used you as a shining example of the modern writer unafraid (kind of) to muck around in a couple of genres at once. I've got it all linked up so my readers can discover Acaia and The Other Lands for themselves.

Cool. Thanks, Lyman. How about a link?

That's the direct link to the article.

Though I didn't get a chance to say so in the article, Acacia certainly gave me pause to think about just how similar Epic Fantasy and Historical fiction really are.

World Building, whether from fact or fiction, begins and ends with the history of its people.

Hmmm... there might just be a paper in that.

My wife and I can't wait for the audio version. We listen on the way to work. We are listening to "Feast for Crows" now and he changed the reader which changes how you see (hear) the characters. Hope you have to same reader. Good Luck and keep writing. Hopefully you can be very prolific and give us years of good reading (or listening).

You're still writing papers?


Thank you. Yes, Dick Hill is narrating again. And yes I understand how jarring the change in narrator for Ice and Fire was. I listened to them also, and at first found the Crows narration really irksome. I stopped, actually, because of it. But then I listened to Simmon's The Terror, with that same new narrator. I got used to his voice and when I returned to Crows things were much smoother.

Doesn't everyone write academic papers for fun? Nope, no more papers for me. Now that I'm back on my feet, I seem to remember having a novel that needs my attention more than my geeky theory interests.

Glad to hear it. I look forward to seeing that novel in print someday.

Oh good. The kindle edition does exist. I've been "waiting" for it, as I'll bet many people still are. I bothered to ask google about it today instead of amazon, which I guess was a good call.

Glad to hear you're looking for it - and that I could point you toward it!
