A Note from Dorien

 

27 May 2014

"The Hired Man" Audiobook Cover

Did you hear that slight whooshing sound? Maybe catch the flicker of…something…out of the corner of your eye? They were yet another month passing between updates to this page. I think I should have a recording made saying, “I’m sorry. I apologize” and put it on a continuous loop playing 24 hours a day.

Well, onward and upward. The audiobook for Dante’s Circle, book #4 of the Elliott Smith Paranormal mystery series has finally been released, making a total of 11 of my 23 books now available in audiobook form. Audiobooks, I’ve learned, are something of a mixed breed. Those who like them are a devoted lot; those who just don’t feel right unless they’re reading the words themselves, off the screen or the physical page, tend to view them with mild suspicion at best and flat-out hostility at worst.

But I invite you to go to Dorien Grey’s Audio Books at http://www.pinterest.com/doriengrey/dorien-greys-audio-books/, where you can click on the cover of any or all 11 of the currently available audiobooks and listen to samples from each book.

Or, you can read the complete first chapter of any/all of my books here on my website, on the “Books” page.

I only wish the print reissues of books 4-10 could move anywhere nearly as fast. The Hired Man audiobook has been out more than a month now. I’d hoped to coordinate it with the reissue of the print version. No such luck. Not only is the print reissue not out, I have absolutely no clue as to when it might be. And then, when it is finally reissued, we have to go through the same, agonizingly and frustratingly slow process with The Good Cop, The Bottle Ghosts, The Dirt Peddler, The Role Players, The Popsicle Tree, and The Paper Mirror.

Though I wanted very much to coordinate the release of each subsequent audiobook with the release of the print version, that just ain’t gonna happen. So the next audiobook to be released will be the most recent Dick Hardesty opus, The Serpent’s Tongue. After that will come The Angel Singers, The Secret Keeper, and The Peripheral Son, hopefully in that order.

Confused? Imagine how I feel.

And, finally on the subject of audiobooks, narration continues on with the total start-from-scratch A World Ago: A Navy Man’s Letters Home, 1954-1956 following the necessary scrapping of the entire 18.5 hours previously recorded (again, thanks to technical problems).

Once again, I hope that if you are on Facebook and we are not yet linked there, that you might “friend” me there (and on Google+ if you belong). I’m on both far more frequently than I probably should be, but if there is any news on anything in my life, I post it there.

I’m sure I’m missing something I meant to say here (I do that a lot), but I think this pretty much catches you up on what’s going on.


Best,

R
