Mirkwood, New Audiobook Title Now Available

After penning his masterpiece, Tolkien lived on.

But so did Middle Earth.

This is probably the most sophisticated tale I’ve told to date.

No question, it’s the most overdue!

Mirkwood is the story told by Steve Hillard that spans the current day, earlier decades, and both the Alleged Real World and the Fourth Age of Middle Earth! I got to pull out all the stops setting the scene between two realms, shifting between foul sorcery and the more subtly sinister spells of the modern city.

And it’s a tale that features a female protagonist, strong and getting stronger. In fact, two of them, one in each world.

I was privileged to work on this project for Steve Hillard about a year ago, and my labors were wrapped up before midsummer. Because of the long-rumored advent of a new streaming series set in Middle Earth, he wanted to wait and “catch the wave”. Conditions can never be certain these days but all the rumors seem to agree on “soon”, so now is the time.

I hope you will enjoy this world-spanning epic tale.

Mirkwood is available on Audible now.

Audiobook giveaway for great new tale from Chris Adams

Audiobook Giveaway: The Hunter and the Sorcerer

Here’s an audiobook giveaway for all fans of listening and word-play.

I’m thrilled to kick off the school year with a new author and an absolutely unique sub-genre for my narration projects. My good friend and very talented artist Chris Adams asked me to narrate his tale of adventure and romance, The Hunter and the Sorcerer. It’s now out on Audible and I hope he sees every success from his work. Because then I will too! But also him…

Audiobook giveaway for great new tale from Chris AdamsBut How to Describe It!

As I mentioned, this is an unusual genre. I’ve hammered away at a great alliteration for it but can’t seem to break through. Here’s the set-up:

A prehistoric tale of the Pleistocene…the adventures of Bru, a Hunter of the Seven Rivers Tribe, as he goes up against saber-tooth tigers, cave bears and an alien race intent on clobbering his world…. 

Simple, right? A stone-age hunter kidnapped by an alien scientist and rocketed away to another galaxy. If you can’t decide whether you like spears or ray-guns better, this is the story for you. No need to pick!

However, what’s the catchy phrase for that unique brand of plot? I want something alliterative, a pair of words that nails it and helps me push the plot to the world. So I’m appealing for help.

Trying to think of the right alliterative phrase makes my head hurt- audiobook giveaway to the rescue!Here are some ideas I’ve tried and discarded, just to give you the idea:

Leather and Lasers- sounds too much like alien erotica (yes, there are plenty of those)

Stones and Stun-Guns- the alliteration is right, but neither one quite fits the plot here

War-club versus Warp Speed- too long, and no clubs used

 

You get the picture? I have found this remarkably hard to come up with.

So I’m asking for your help with this audiobook giveaway!
