It's very strange hearing your own book read by somebody else.
But I'm excited about the new audio versions of GLORY BE and THE WAY TO STAY IN DESTINY.
Glory's narration is read by Cassandra Morris whose CD of A SNICKER OF MAGIC won an Odyssey Honorable Mention for the best recorded book from the American Library Association.
CLICK HERE for a little sample of her reading my own book.
If you buy the entire audio version, at the end you'll hear ME reading my Author Note and Acknowledgements. Thanks to my friend, Kirby Larson, and my editor Andrea Davis Pinkney, I was brave enough to ask if I could do that.
(Because they did it on their own awesome audiobooks and I loved it.)
And the Scholastic audio guy, the fantastic Paul Gagne, said yes.
THE WAY TO STAY IN DESTINY is available as a real 4-disc CD.
Michael Crouch is reading. A sample is here.
A quite nice School Library Journal review is HERE.
(I love what it says on the front cover. I'm a BONUS!)
Thanks, Scholastic audio and your great actors. Thanks Paul for your super work.
I gave away a handful of the CDs last week via Twitter. But I have at least one more I can share. I'll pick the winner soon. In a few days. When I think I can get to the post office! Sorry to be so random but it is almost July 4th.
Leave me a comment and let's see what happens.
