June is “Audiobook Month” (#audiomonth), a month to celebrate the art form and for those of us in the industry, an opportunity to give back. To that end, I’m happy to be involved again this year with the Spoken Freely Summer Shorts project to benefit Pro Literacy, a natonal outreach and literacy organization! Over 40 top notch narrators have joined in and donated their voices to the cause.
Throughout June 2014, 1-2 stories, poems and/or essays will be released online each day via Going Public and on other author/blogger sites. As a “thank you” to all listeners, the pieces are available to listen to for free on the day of release, and subsequently available for purchase as a donation to benefit ProLiteracy. As a bonus for those who purchase the full collection from Tantor Audio, 20 additional tracks are included. You can find the full release schedule on Going Public Blog.
My piece, released today, along with an interview, is hosted by author M.V. Freeman. We had a blast talking getting to know each other, discussing audiobooks, Rumi, yoga and lots other things we have in common. Click here to check it out! And consider buying the full collection from Tantor Media here. It’s only $9.99 and it’s for a great cause! You will be amazed at the quality of the work contributed!
