This morning, for the first time, I listened to Jessica Almasy read the story—brilliantly!—for Audible.
It had been many years and many books since I heard another read my words, and it is startling, truly startling. Someone else, I thought as I listened, wrote this story.
Thank you, Jessica Almasy. This could not have been easy to do. I learned from you, from listening to you.
The Audible edition can be found here. I highly encourage you to find it.
For more about the book, for a look at early reviews, for a link to a free download-able sample, and for another look at that terrific Chronicle-produced book trailer, please visit here. To bop along to some 1980s music as you do, please visit the Going Over Playlist.
In the days to come I'll be linking to the bloggers who are kindly hosting interviews and my guest posts. Today (later) we will begin at home, with Chronicle Books.
