Kelby Losack has recorded an audiobook of my novel Black Gum, and it’s available to listen to for free over on my podcast.
Kelby’s voice is soulful yet deadpan. He’s from the Houston area, and he’s a rapper in addition to being a writer, so his voice has that appropriate accent for the book. He’s a remarkably clear reader. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
I have a favor to ask! I’d love it if you could share this around on all the different platforms. Social media, your own blog, wherever. I think this is a great representation of my work, and it’s presented in a format that people can listen to on their way to work (or at work, if you have that kind of job). Seems like a good thing to pass around.
We’ve been having some incredible rains lately. I’ve been playing Dark Souls while the baby sleeps, and reading The Shadow of the Torturer by Gene Wolfe, which is amazing so far.
Reblogged this on heathenish ramblings and commented:
It was an honor and a blast to record the audiobook version of one of my favorite novels. It would mean a lot if you give a listen and pass it around.
