Listen Up!

Just a quick post to say the lovely people at Audible have bought the rights to make audio books of The Erebus Sequence. As yet I don’t know which actor will provide their voice, but I do know I’m very excited. Juliet Mushens of The Agency Group sealed the deal late last night.

I’m currently deep in the second draft of book II of The Erebus Sequence, which is called The Boy Who Wept Blood. The second draft (or the way I do a second draft) requires me to read it aloud and drink lots of tea. I know many authors read their dialogue aloud, but I like to read the whole novel. If I find myself pause, hesitate, or stumble it usually means the sentence doesn’t flow quite right. Or I need more tea. Possibly both (Usually both).

In this way I’ve been making audio books of my own all week. Fortunately for you and me, I didn’t recorded them, else you’d hear me mutter ‘Full stop and start a new sentence, not comma, you idiot!’. There would also be lots of sniggering at my own jokes, which I’m genetically incapable of not doing.

Now I must get back to the second draft.
