Houston, We Have an Audio Book!
I had to search through my files for my tattered bucket list this week and draw a nice, straight line through one of the items, ala My Name is Earl. To my surprise, the audio book of my novel, Evil Eternal, was just released. As I told my good friend, Jack, now I can afflict the blind with my brand of horror.
I can’t describe the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you hear a professional read your words back to you. In Evil Eternal’s case, narrator Seth Michael Donsky adds a delicious, sinister flair to the story. Hearing him read the book, I kept saying, “Did I write that?” I couldn’t have asked for a better person to narrate it. You can download a copy at Amazon or Audible, and also hear a sample from the very first chapter. It’s ultra-wicked.
Also, if you purchase the audio book, you’ll be putting a nice deposit in your personal karma bank. My wife was diagnosed with Lupus last year. Apparently, she’s had it for years but her doctors assumed it was other things. Lupus is like that. I’m donating 25% of all the royalties from the sale of the Evil Eternal audio book to the Lupus Foundation of America. We never knew how debilitating Lupus could be until we came face-to-face with it. We have a very long road ahead of us, but we’re indebted to one amazing doctor for realizing what was taking my wife from me, piece by piece. Help us make sure no one else has to go through what we and so many others have.
Awesome news about the audiobook! I will fill my ears with EVIL 🙂 Bloody best wishes to you & yours!
Thanks Frazer. It’s like a whole new book to me. Funny how a person’s vocal interpretation can change the whole thing.
Sweet news on the audio book, Hunter and congrats! Now hoping to learn of even better news on your wife day by day!
I saw your name in a book last night, Joe….
Hi Erin 🙂 How are you?
What book was that?
I can’t reply to your other comment below….I’m reading Sinister Entity….:)
Then read sista, read!! lol
So happy for Hunter! 🙂
That was a hint, Joe!! 🙂
A BIG one!
I wonder if he’s getting it.
I’m not sure if I’m even getting it now lol
OK Joe, the cat’s out of the bag. You make an appearance in Sinister Entity!
This is fantastic news! I purchased it today. Can’t wait to listen to it. I am so sorry for what you have both gone through and you are in my thoughts! Is there a way to make donations in her name to the Lupus Foundation of America? It would be cool if that was possible. 🙂
Thank you so much for the support, Tim. It’s weird. The doctor discovered she had Lupus while trying to get the root cause of another thing. In tandem, they’ve wreaked havoc. We’re all so new to this. I don;t have a way to make donations in her name. Even if we could, knowing her, she wouldn’t want the spotlight. We just want to do what we can to spare others this nightmare.
Buy the ebook. 🙂 I have worked many years with non-profits. You may send checks to them with a letter saying that you are making in honor of a person’s name. If that helps.
Thanks! I can now say I learned something new today.
I am a wealth of knowledge. 🙂
Congratulations on the audio book Hunter! Terribly sorry about what you and your family is going through with the diagnosis. Terrible disease but hopefully treatment will work out for her.
Thanks Maria. My wife has more strength and resolve than an army.
Congrats! I can’t wait to hear it. Perhaps you could get Gilbert Gottfried to read the Forest of Shadows audio book. Maybe Fran Drescher for Sinister Entity?
Scarily, when I first signed the audio deal, I asked if I could get Gilbert. Great minds…
What fun to have Joe make an appearance in Sinister Entity! I just wish-listed it. As for the audio book, that is super! I’m so excited for you. To hear a professional recording of words that once only existed within your mind has got to be one of the pinnacles of experience!
I am glad that the doctors have found root cause, but I am sorry for the torturous journey to that answer. It is amazing that the first thought you both have is to help others avoid some of that pain. Your joint compassion in the face of a difficult diagnosis is a humbling reminder of the sublime beauty of the human soul when it is willing to look beyond itself.
