Amish Zombies from Space is now available as an audiobook.
This one is especially exciting for me. I rarely read my books after they are in a cover. There's just never enough time, plus, there is always the hidden fear that if I read it again, I'll decide it is awful and want to start changing things.
(Every writer wrestles with similar insecurities, I think. The book is never "perfect", it simply must be finished.)
Plus, the middle chapter of a trilogy always lives in the shadows of its siblings. It isn't the bold introduction story, nor is it the rough and tumble finale. It is the road between them. And few people contemplate the road for long.
But, producing an audio book forced me to immerse myself in the story again. It was a fearful journey. One I was leery of starting. But, as the paragraphs and chapters went by, my trepidation diminished. I found myself thinking "Wow, that works pretty well..." and "Did I write that? Where did that come from?"
In the end, it restored my faith in the story. It is a fun ride. Exactly what it needs to be. Cool science, thoughtful themes, and fun characters.
Plus, Randy's Streu's golden tones. That guy is a true audio performer. I love what he did to my book. It is a fantastic listen.
I hope you agree.
