I may have mentioned it before, but I really, really, REALLY love the story I told in A Sword Into Darkness. I get it, I’m biased, but I really did try to write the best story I could, mixing all the elements of science fiction I love together, while also offering up an homage to my favorites of the genre. What resulted is a story that is both classic, fun, and makes you think, presenting some new twists on an old idea, a melange that is more than the sum of its parts (that’s not just me saying that, by the way).
And while I do love my book, I never experienced it fresh as a new reader until I heard Liam Owen’s narration of it, produced by Sci-Fi Publishing. The audiobook of ASID simply MUST BE EXPERIENCED. I adore this amazing thing, this amalgamation of my thoughts and another’s voice. As I said in a previous post, whether you are new to the story or you enjoyed it in print already, you will love the audiobook of it all over again. And it was so effortless enjoying it that way, I’ve been turned on to audiobooks from a number of authors and producers, enjoying them while I work, work out, or commute.
Here’s the offer, though: Audible gave me 25 free copies of the A Sword Into Darkness audiobook, and I’m not sure who to give them out to. I’ll be offering some up as prizes in a contest soon, but if you are a reviewer and you’d like to experience (or re-experience) ASID, drop me a line in the comments, on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or via e-mail. All I’d like in return is a listen and a fair shake on your review which you would then share with others.
And if you are not a reviewer, but you’d still like some audible ASID-y goodness for free, you can always start your 30-day free trial of Audible.com and get that puppy for gratis, nothing, nada, zip, ∞ times the value of what you paid.
