Commune 3 Production Wrapped 10/31. Audible Release Imminent!

This morning I approved the finalized chapters for C3 over at ACX.  That means the book is now running through Audible’s quality control process, after which it should post to Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.  This process usually takes between 10 and 14 days, so it’s looking pretty damned close.  I’ll notify you all through every channel I have once it’s available for purchase.  The final run time on this one clocks in right around 19 hours.

I want to take a minute to congratulate R. C. Bray for the work he’s done on this entry.  The man continues to transform my words into things greater than they were when I first cobbled them together, often times taking the characters in directions I’d not anticipated, though his instincts always end up being correct in the end.  Anyone could “narrate” these books but Bob performs them in ways that continue to shock and amaze.

I am, indeed, a lucky man.

Commune 3 Audio Release Date on @audible_com – October/November

Okay, a lot of you have been pinging me for updates on the audio release of C3, so I spoke recently with R.C. to confirm.  The man has a stacked schedule, as you’re all, I’m sure, aware.  Right now he’s wrapping up books for the Craigs; Mavericks for Alanson and Over the Hill for Dilouie.  And as I know that a lot of my readers are just as excited about those other books, I don’t mind saying that waiting just a touch longer won’t kill us.

So, here we go.  And C4 chugs along happily in editing – there should be no problem in having it ready to go when Bob is ready for it, so we can expect to see the final book in the series sometime around Christmas.

Take care!

Commune Book Three Audio Book Update

Well, now that C2 has been released on Audible, I have a ton of readers asking when C3 comes out on audio.

First off: thank you very much for your interest.  It’s a great problem for a writer to have.

The best I have right now is that production for C3 is tentatively scheduled to start sometime later this year, probably around July or August.  That’s really the best information I have right now.  As you know, R. C. Bray’s schedule is somewhat akin to an exploding minefield…

In the meantime, I’m currently writing the 4th book and listening to the new Mountain Man Prequel by Keith C. Blackmore.  If you haven’t picked that one up yet, just what the hell is wrong with you???

Thank You

Commune Book 2 was released on Audible three days ago.  It’s already climbed to the #2 best seller slot for the Post Apocalypse genre and jumped to 77 on their Science Fiction top 100 best seller list.

You readers out there who are making this happen: you can’t imagine my gratitude.  Just thank you.
