KDT for Your Listening Pleasure

KDT for Your Listening Pleasure


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!

    AudioBooks are great, for the professional that does not have time to read Fiction…except on holidays.Being hands free listing to awesome stories also makes me very productive doing daily chores and DIY projects, Book 1 was awesome and I look forward to books 2 & 3.

    The narrator also add another level of entertainment and personality to the story and finances the experience of the story. Good choice of Narrator Kel..

    I also have some exciting news! I just ate a Crunch bar and it was delicious! And, if you want some, please answer in a question when the audible version is coming out! And, my guess is Reaylin as the first side story as she has disappearred to handle her business with the resistance. Plus, I enjoy her eccentric behavior. Whacky girls are hot!

    Dear Writer Person,

    Your books, I like them. I’m willing to offer my daughter’s left kidney in exchange for the earliest manuscript copy or draft of book three.

    Sincerely(ish) yours,

    – Nate

    Dear NSA,

    I’m mostly kidding.

    Hey kal I just got done reading your books and I love them. But I was looking up all the different weapons to get a clear picture in my mind what they look like and could not find su’carai any where. Thought I ask what origin type of weapon it is. Thanks Also can’t wait to hear the books.

      Thank you for writing, and I’m glad to hear you’re interested in the audiobooks. The su’carai are a “Kadian” weapon, straight from the imagination of yours truly. Mixing fantasy with reality keeps the world imaginative, unique, and a bit believable.
