Marti has uploaded the last of the files for the audiobook version of Black Orchid Blues. It’s always interesting to hear other people’s interpretation of your work. In this case, it’s quite pleasant. She has a knack for characterization, for catching the way a character sounded in my head when I was writing.
I found her at ACX. Truth be told, she found me. She began writing to me about Darkness and the Devil Behind Me. She was the first person to have shown any real interest in the project in quite some time. And she was good. I did listen to other auditions, and there were quite a few good ones, but for some reason, her voice stayed with me.
And so now, here we are. First Darkness. Now, Black Orchid Blues. I hope people will enjoy them.
Johnny Temple over at Akashic Books, by the way, was great about letting me use the wonderful cover Akashic designed for Black Orchid Blues. Meanwhile, I did a new cover for Darkness. Hope everyone likes it.
