I’m excited to announce that my book, To Cut a Short Story Short: 111 Little Stories, is now available as an audiobook. It comprises the ‘best of my blog’ up to June 2017, and is over six hours long. It is narrated by Angus Freathy, who has narrated 15 audiobooks to date (http://adbl.co/2m3lPDa). His ‘voices’ really bring the stories to life and I’m very pleased with the result!
I have a limited number of promotional codes (worth £16/$20 each) to give away for free copies! They can ONLY be used on either Audible.com or Audible.co.uk, but you should be able to use either site from most countries.
So if you would like a free copy of To Cut a Short Story Short: 111 Little Stories in audiobook form, please contact me via my blog contact page (only) and I’ll be pleased to send you a promotional code whilst they are still available. Let me know where in the world you are or otherwise please indicate your preference as to which of the above two sites you’d prefer (the codes are only valid for one or the other, not both).
UPDATE – 29TH NOVEMBER 2017
I’m now pleased to announce that Bound in Morocco, a short story (NOT on my blog), is ALSO available on Audiobook, again narrated by Angus Freathy. I also have some promotional codes for FREE copies of this title, which I’m happy to send on request, see details above. This is only 50 minutes long (as opposed to To Cut a Short Story Short: 111 Little Stories, which is six hours 20 minutes) but is, I think, an entertaining and enjoyable adventure, set in Morocco. Use the link given below to go to the first title, then there is a link lower down the page to go to this one.
To get your free audiobook once you have the code, you need to create an Amazon account (if you don’t already have one) then you go to Audible and create an Audible account (if you don’t already have one). That doesn’t commit you to anything BTW, you DON’T have to become a member. Then you follow some simple instructions to ‘purchase’ and download your audiobook. Full instructions are given below for reference.
There’s absolutely no catch, I would just ask that you leave a positive review on Audible’s site if you enjoy the book, but that’s up to you.
You can play it in iTunes or Windows Media Player and download to your phone etc. etc. Audible audiobooks are also currently compatible with:
- Fire phone
- Fire tablet
- Kindle for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
- Kindle for Android
- Kindle for Samsung
- All New Kindle Oasis
