Update 11/23/08

So there are a couple of major announcements to make.

First off, I now official have a Kindle version of my first novel, “The Last Rejection,” just $4.80. What’s a Kindle?  Oh, well it’s a device that Amazon.com has created that allows you to read electronic books and short stories.  It’s supposed to be really cool.  The screen is clear and allows you to look really close to reading from paper.  It sounds interesting to me, but it’s a bit pricey at $360.  Yikes!  Still, it’s gaining in popularity.  I’m also making a kindle verizon of my short, “Little White Lie.”  It should be ready sometime next week.  Here is the link to download “The Last Rejection” if you already have a kindle: http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Rejection/dp/B001LROWPU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1227435374&sr=8-2

Second, I am proud to announce that the production of the audio book, “My Imperfect Life,” has begun!  Yay!  I’ve really enjoyed writing this and reading out loud helps me edit the story as well.  I have two completed chapters so far and I am working on chapter three.  I am narrating the story myself.  Thankfully my years of studying acting are paying off.  I’m also playing all the characters, which is also very fun.  I slightly change my voice for each character.  I find that the humor comes out more this way, especially with the female characters.  Just for you guys and gals you can download the first chapter right here: http://www.scottdavidbrown.com/projects/chapter1.mp3  

*Please note that this is a rough version and the final edited version may differ slightly.

Also, I have sent in an application to iTunes asking that my audiobook be included in their online shop!  I really look forward to the possibility of my audio book being added to their library.  The audio book version that I am publishing myself, which will be on a compact disk, will be about twelve tracks long.  If there is till enough room I’ll be adding bonus content!  I’ll have a short introductory and some commentary about writing the story and making the CD.  Maybe more if I can make room!

I suppose that is about all there is to say.  Unfortunately, Wade will have to be put off as I am spending most of next week on the audio book.  Plus, Thanksgiving is coming up and next weekend is going to be busy at my real job.  I know I haven’t posted anything in my personal blog for a while.  It’s been mostly website update, however, expect to see one coming around Thanksgiving…

  1. I'll be honest, I started the mp3 with mixed hesitation – wasn't quite sure if you'd pull it off, but it sounds great. You have a really good voice for it. 🙂
