Yes, I realize that it’s July. But my new website was just launched on June 27 (thanks be to my web guy, Chuck Burke (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I couldn’t really post this before then because I didn’t actually know how to do it (Chuck just taught me that yesterday). Besides, the blog post that I’m going to talk about was just released on June 27 so give me a break already – geez! Oh, and happy birthday Canada! Happy Canada Day Canadians!
So, back to June. I was so, so, SO blessed to have been included in Going Public’s “June is Audiobook Month” promotion. Every day during the month of June, at least one story, poem or essay was available for a free listen on Going Public’s website. Thanks to Tantor Audio for their production and distribution services. And thanks to award winning narrator Xe Sands who was the executive producer of the whole affair, responsible for organizing 40 plus narrators and 40 plus blog writers to create Summer Shorts ’14. The entire collection is available for purchase from Tantor Audio with all of the proceeds going to ProLiteracy, an international literacy organization.
I narrated two pieces in the collection, both written by my author friend, Jane Cawthorne. Something as Big as A Mountain was included as part of the free daily listens and Weight is one of the bonus titles. Jane and I were interviewed by Michelle Erin for her blog My books. My Life. You can read the blog post here.
Even though the June free listens are over, don’t despair ’cause you can purchase the entire collection online forever and ever and ever from Tantor Audio!
