In the Stars I’ll Find You Giveaway!

In-the-Stars-I'll-Find-You-Audiobook-Cover

I’ve been working with the talented voice actor, Lauren Fortgang, to get the audio version of In the Stars I’ll Find You, up for sale on Audible. This collection of short stories features my science fictional work, from exploring far-flung worlds to finding what it means to be human through artificial intelligence to the cost of dividing ourselves—or ourself—through the use of technology.

I’m pleased to report the audiobook is finally ready! You can check it out on Audible now, including a 5-minute audio sample. I think you’ll agree that Lauren did a wonderful job bringing these stories to life.

To celebrate, I’m hosting a giveaway for three audio copies of the book. It’s open to anyone worldwide. Just reply to this post with your favorite audio voice actor (not necessary, but with one of their audiobooks if you remember it). If you’re new to audio books, I’ll settle for your favorite actor. No multiple entries allowed. The contest ends August 12th at midnight (GMT -6).

If you know anyone who likes audio books, please spread the word!

    I really liked the guy who narrated The Aeronaut’s Windlass, he was excellent at lots of different voices (particularly the cat!)

    Micheal Kramer and Kate Reading, who did the stormlight archives and apparently the wheel of time. They also did a gathering of shadows and that audiobook is a significant improvement from the darker shade of magic audiobook which was done by someone else.

    Also James Masters who does the Dresden files is fantastic.

    I’m kind of partial to Wil Wheaton. I live the way he did Ready Player One.

    I’m a Family Guy fan, and don’t normally listen to Audio books, so I’m going with Betty White. 😉

    I loved Sara Coomes work on The Twelve Kimgs of Sharakhai. Also Kate Reading and Wil Wheaten did a wonderful
    Job with Cherie Priest’s Bome Shaker.

    I love Tim Gerard Reynolds, his work on Riyria and the Red Queen War are unforgettable

    I would say Jim Lee is my favorite–but then I remembered Tim Curry did Garth Nix’s Sabriel and that was honestly perfect.

      If Hollywood ever picks up the Abhorsen series, they need to have Tim Curry voice Mogget. I simply wouldnt have it any other way.

    I really liked Ray Chase on your Winds of Khalakovo! But Benedict Cumberbatch would be amazing for an audiobook!

    I never tried audiobooks before and I hope to begin with this one!

    Candyman himself, Tony Todd:
    The Flash, Young Justice, Darkseid from Lego DC movies.
    Tony Todd is the man!

    I’m new to audio and also liked Will Wheaton doing Armada, but I’ve gotten to know Michael Kramer who does Charlie Pulsipher’s books and more recently Uncommon Purpose by PJ Strebor. He is great. He’s my audio guy!

    I’m new to audiobooks, but I would listen to anything if Shohreh Aghdashloo were reading it! Even a phone book. Because, that voice.

    I’ve never tried an Audiobooks so I’ll go with Morgan Freeman.
    I think he’d have a good voice for narration. I’m sure someone will tell me he already does such work.

    It really liked the Harry Potter narrator…I don’t recall his name.

    William Dufris reading Replay by Ken Grimwood. This is the first and only audio book i have been listening to, but i think he did a really good job!

    Roy Dotrice – A Game of Thrones. Doing all those voices that I as a listener can actually distinguish from echother is nothing short of amazing.

    Its gonna be a tie between Michael Page with the Gentleman Bastards Series and his amazing job at bringing the characters into a play in front of me, and Tim Gerald Reynolds with his way of consistently drawing you back into the story. I’d listen to an parli-pro textbook if it was narrated by one of these two.

      Two of my all-time favorites. Great choices.

    Steven Pacey who does most of Joe Abercrombies works personifies those amazingly. Great delivery and range.

    Vikas Adam for Dreams and Shadows as one of his voices was so amazingly creepy. Also at one point he portrays a woman getting younger as she speaks and then reverting back to old by the end which I though he handled really well.

    My favorite audiobook performance is Claudia Black reading Sanderson’s Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell.

    I’m just getting into audiobooks, but I liked Wheaton’s Agent to the Stars, and Cecil Baldwin’s Welcome to Night Vale.

    Michael Kramer is my favorite. He has done so many great works, like Mistborn, Stormlight, and WoT.

    James Masters who does the Dresden files is fantastic. I also enjoy Christopher Evan Welch’s narration of The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney
