18 Mar 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!

Love this series, and can’t wait to hear it all on audio! It’ll be great to hear Rezkin’s voice out loud and actually feel what this scary, awesome man will sound like in his ‘danger mode.’ And I read the news about the side characters story, yay! I already have three theories on who it’s about.

Congratulations on a major coup! Nick is an amazing performer and is close to perfect for Rez. Props to you for trusting the creative process and writing what you want. Trust me, real fans of Rez will be there whenever book 3 is published. Sorry you have to deal with the negative comments. #rezforking. Lol.

Thank you for the encouragement, and I am glad to hear from a fan of Nick’s as well. I have had a lot of really positive feedback, so I try not to worry about the negative too much. There are always haters, but I’m not writing for them. Thanks for the message!

Nice, linking yourself to Rothfuss for example. Keep it up, just don’t be like our good friend Rothfuss and take 6 years for book 3 😛

Dude. I have a buddy who only does audio books. I felt so bad that he wouldnt get to read your series. Now he can fall in love with your writing just like I did. Thanks!
Kel KadePosted at 23:59h, 18 March
Excellent! I am very hopeful that the series will get the same positive response in audiobook. Thanks for your feedback!

I’ve never been a reader, but I LOVE stories. I used to watch people play video games just to hear the story line. The KDT series on audiobook are truly entertaining and Nick podehl is an extreme compliment to your stories. For the record, I listened to both available books within 4 days (I travel alot), and I spent the next week re-listening. I will forever buy your books.

Not interested in the Audio, or “supporting Character” books, just the next KDT book.
ManuelaPosted at 01:27h, 19 March
I have to agree. What we want is the next KDT Book and nothing else. It is so frustrating to wait and wait and wait…. I NEED to know what happens next with Renkin and his Friends. I beg you! Kel, don’t let this faithful Follower from Germany and all your other Fans waiting too lomg, pleeeaaaasse! 🙋
