Now on Audio!!!
People today have so many demands on their time that the idea of 'multi-tasking' should be automatically assumed. We're all pulled in many directions simultaneously. Balancing the issues of work, family and friends is no easy deal.
Yet it's good to have goals. Sometimes they are very similar to dreams. While I can't speak for all authors, it's always been a goal/dream to see one of my novels turned into a movie. While that hasn't happened yet, I'd like to think that possibility is one step closer.
That's why today is such a blast for me. It's the achievement of another goal. Writing a novel and getting it published takes a lot of dedication and hard work. You're constantly reviewing and editing, trying to make sure each paragraph, each sentence is as close to perfect as you can get. Because you want to engage the audience, draw them in, make them care about your characters and the challenges they are facing. But that can be hard to do when they're running from work to soccer practice to the grocery store, to PTA meetings, to dinner with the relatives and so much more.
Today marks the day that the first Jefferson Chene novel, "Why 319?" is available as an audio book. That's right. It's now live on Amazon, narrated by Keith McCarthy, who did a fantastic job, putting voices to my players. So if you prefer to listen to a story while you're on the run, or watching that soccer practice from the sidelines, here it is. And you can even get it for free. Just check out the details on the Amazon page.
Many thanks to Keith for his talent and hard work bringing my characters to life. And to the good people at Wild Rose Press, who took a chance on my story.
Of course, there's got to be music. While the context may not be exactly what you'd expect, the title is the first thing that came to mind. Enjoy!
