Today I am drawing away on the cover for the next Girl Genius Collection. Now drawing is different from writing, in that I don’t have to cogitate, really. This allows me to listen to podcasts and other spoken-word thingies that would completely derail me if I was writing. Today I was listening to the audiobook version of our latest novel; Agatha H & The Voice of the Castle. (And yes, I do so for reasons other than sheer vanity) I had been wondering when I’d get to, as I had seen that it was out awhile ago, but had not received a copy from our publishers. I finally asked, and discovered that as far as contractually obligated freebies go, our publisher lets us download a free copy off of Audible (http://www.amazon.com/Agatha-H-Voice-Castle/dp/B00R1WQ2NY/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=8-1&qid=1425097811). This pleasant, as it meant that less than three minutes later, it was playing on my computer.
Once again the reader is Ms. Angela Dawe, who does a crackerjack job. It sells for about $18, and is over 17 hours long, so from a time/motion standpoint, it’s a pretty sweet deal. Even better, when you consider that if you’re signing up for the first time, you can get it for free (relax, we still get paid). So check it out!
