Got some terrific news from my agent this afternoon: we've sold the audiobook rights to the entire Milkweed Triptych: Bitter Seeds (which is out right now!), The Coldest War (coming in hardcover in February, 2011), and Necessary Evil.
My agent, Kay, describes this as "quite a coup", coming as it does so soon after the release of Bitter Seeds, and while I'm still an unknown quantity as authors go. I think the deal owes far more to her negotiating savvy than to anything on my end, but I'm pleased all the same.
No news yet on production dates or anything of that sort. It will take a while for the recordings to happen -- heck, it takes me 45 minutes to do a reading of a single short story/novelette -- so they might not appear for a while. More news as I have it.
I am, of course, quite excited to hear the final product. I'm especially curious to know how they'll render Enochian in the audio version of Bitter Seeds.
(Caution: Prolonged exposure to Enochian may cause unwanted side effects, including madness, high blood pressure, and a propensity for self-mutilation. Never speak Enochian in the presence of small children. Never speak Enochian while bleeding from an open wound. Never speak Enochian while operating heavy machinery.)
We now return you to your regularly scheduled trip reports.Close Permalink
I can't wait of the audiobook! I finished the book last week and I am thoroughly impressed. Can't wait for your next book.
Thanks, Chris! I'm very happy about the audiobooks.
I'm very glad you enjoyed Bitter Seeds. And thanks for letting me know-- it's a thrill and a pleasure to hear from readers. I really appreciate it.
You're not planning to do the reading? What a disappointment. There should be a law that authors who make up languages or pieces of languages should be made to read them in the audio-book editions.
Oh, and congrats.
Read an entire book aloud? With my vocal range of 1/100 octave? Ha! I like to do readings at conventions, but 45 minutes is just about pushing my limit. Not everybody can be Neil Gaiman...
If I did have to come up with something that sounded like Enochian for a recording, I'd first have to chew broken glass and then gargle some vinegar.
