As you all know because I’m always banging on about it, I put this book out last year, mostly thanks to you lot.
For a large number of reasons – mostly stress, mental health, etc – I haven’t recorded the audiobook yet. But I’m finally going to do it, and I want to make it really great.
Massive thanks go to @sheeldz, who it turns out was some sort of undercover absolute legend. Not only had he inspired me to get my arse into gear and get this sorted, but he’s also offered to read the thing, and even sent me a recording of him reading some of the poems and an intro in his sultry Scottish tones. What a guy.
So I’m flagrantly taking him up on his kind offer, because it’ll sound better in his excellent voice, although I’ll read a fair bit of it myself, too. My request to you, community.drownedinsound.com, is would anyone else be up for reading a poem? Just a single one is all I’m asking, but I think it’d be cool to break it up with some different voices – different accents or even a lady? I might get my little boy to read one of the less offensive ones.
Quite excited by it all. If no-one’s up for it, that’s cool, whatever. But if you are, just let me know what you want to read, and basically send me as decent a recording as possible. I’ll credit you of course.
Thanks. And thanks again for the support getting the book made in the first place. I’ve still got a bunch unsold, but everyone who has it seems to like it. Which is nice.
