Hark! Here’s a bit of my Audiobook

I love audiobooks. There are so many good ones but I really recommend Joe Abercrombie’s ‘First Law’ series and his new release ‘A Little Hatred’ read by Steven Pacey. Every character is uniquely defined, perfectly realised, and full of personality. It probably wasn’t helpful that I was listening to ‘A Little Hatred’ while deciding whether I should read ‘The Last Smile in Sunder City.’

I’ve never done an audiobook before. Some part of me was worried about botching my own work. After a little test-run, we decided that, yes, I should be the one to read my own story. I know these words better than anyone else and there is so much of Fetch in me, and me in Fetch, that I felt pretty darn comfortable in his skin.

Here are the first few minutes of the recording which lead directly into the written sample I posted here.

Enjoy!

  1. Looking forward for your audiobook from you, Luke! I believe you will be great storyteller with your voice as Fetch in this story. I listened to this sample and I personally love your flow with word and pace, which it’s helpful for deaf person like me to read and listen to audiobook at same time.

    Can’t wait for your book coming at my mailbox soon! πŸ™‚
