The narration is complete for the audio version of Blood Soup! I’ve listened to all the files and notified Audible that I approved them.
Now, we wait for Audible to do their own quality checks. This could take anywhere from fourteen to twenty days, according to Audible — but my narrator Edoardo Camponeschi of menestrandise.com tells me that it’s been running about a week. I’m hoping that’s the case.
I’ve pictured the new cover art here. Audible requires the square, ‘jewel case’ format. I was able to put Eduardo’s name on the cover, too.
Spread the word! (And cross your fingers for a February release!)

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll very shortly have an audio version of my book, Blood Soup available!
It’s a short novel, and the timetable is happening so quick, that it’s likely it will be available from Audible (and elsewhere) by the end of February!
I’m even more tickled to announce that the reader is none other than Edoardo Camponeschi of menestrandise.com who has read so far the first three of Christopher Paolini’s “Inheritance Cycle” books to much acclaim.
When I submitted the book for audition, I requested someone who could read with both Italian and German accents since the two warring families in Blood Soup are modeled after Italy and Germany. I am (indescribably) excited that Edoardo submitted an audition. His voice is rich and luscious, and I know his reading will bring the story to life.
If you want a sneak preview of what the reading may sound like, check out Edoardo’s catalog which features many samples of his work — all in Italian at this time. I could listen for hours. 🙂 My Italian is rusty, but I’m feeling a definite need to brush up…
Do let me know if you’re as excited as I. In the meantime, I’ll work on getting the cover reformatted for Audible…
