I have very exciting news for King’s Dark Tidings fans! Everyone wants to know when Book 3 is going to be available. That is not the announcement I am making. (So sorry – I know that was evil *insert evil cackle here*.) For many KDT fans, this is just as good…maybe.
Many readers have requested availability of KDT in audiobook format. This was not something I wanted to rush, because I wanted to make sure it was done right. The success of the series has encouraged me to accept only the best for my readers! I have heard your pleas and seek to provide!
I am proud to announce that Podium Publishing will be producing professional quality audiobooks for the King’s Dark Tidings series. Podium has published hundreds of audiobooks and received numerous awards, including the 2015 Audie Award for Best Science Fiction Audiobook for its best-known work The Martian by Andy Weir. Even better, Podium specializes in the fantasy and science fiction genre! They have a long list of audiobooks by your favorite fantasy authors like Brian D. Anderson, R. A. Salvatore, Anthony Ryan, and Michael G. Manning. (Click here for more audiobooks by Podium)
With a vast community of professional narrators, Podium has managed to contract award winning voice actor Nick Podehl to read KDT’s Free the Darkness (Book 1) and Reign of Madness (Book 2). Mr. Podehl has performed a long list of books and has won multiple awards for his efforts. Some of you may be familiar with his work on Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles or other works by well-known fantasy writers R. L. Stine, Andre Norton, and Mercedes Lackey.
Recording for Book 1 is scheduled to begin at the end of May or early June, and recording for Book 2 will begin in early July. I will keep you posted on the actual release dates when they become available!
Thank you so much for your readership and enthusiastic encouragement!
P.S. I still don’t have a release date for Book 3, but I am concurrently working on a side tale for one of the main supporting characters. I’ll let you guys figure out who it might be! And, yes, I do read the discussions on the Amazon Kel Kade forum. They’re awesome!
