At last, I’m so excited to announce my news – the standalone novel I’ve been writing about a Roman slave has been signed up by Audible! It will be an exclusive title for them, which means it will ONLY appear as an audiobook which they will produce in their studios, you won’t be able to “read” it anywhere else. Don’t worry though, if you don’t listen to audiobooks (why not? they rule!) you will be able to buy the ebook/print version of the novel a year down the line.
I can’t tell you how proud I am of this, and also how excited! I have previously sold a novella to a publisher (The Abbey of Death to Amazon Publishing) but this will be the first full-length novel someone has picked up. And on top of that, it will be produced by Audible who do an amazing job with these things.
I am honestly over the moon and it’s a little strange because I actually wrote Lucia after listening to the Audible productions of Jane Eyre (read my review HERE) and Rebecca (review HERE). They inspired me to try my hand at writing a standalone novel about a female protagonist, rather than an all-out action, boys-own type thing like all my other books. So, for Audible to then sign-up Lucia to make it into a production of their own….It’s pretty overwhelming!
In terms of the book – like the novels that inspired it, it is completely different to what I usually read/write. I don’t want to give anything away yet, but I’m very proud of it and I think my usual readers will enjoy it along with, hopefully, a new audience who wouldn’t pick up, for example, The Druid. I’m certain Audible’s production will do it justice and I can’t wait to hear it!
Hopefully this inspires a few of my readers to try audiobooks if they haven’t already, and don’t forget, Song of the Centurion, the sequel to The Druid will be out sometime this year so there will be plenty to keep you going…
As always, I want to thank every one of you who has read and reviewed my books, and supported me on social media or whatever – none of this could happen if it wasn’t for you, and I hugely appreciate it.
