I woke up this morning, checked my email, and found a wonderful note from a fan living in L.A.
Steve Phelan is an actor who also does voice work for indies. He read my book back in March during the free promo period and reviewed it shortly thereafter.
This would have been perfectly fine, but he was in a studio the other day recording something and decided to record a tiny portion of Chapter 3 from “Kick” and send it to me. It’s one thing to read someone’s book, but it’s a whole ’nother compliment to read it and still be thinking about it two months later. Wow huh?
Apparently WordPress wants $20 a month to put audio files up, but I’m a wascally wabbit and think I can figure out another way, possibly using YouTube if it came to it.
In the mean time, here’s the link to Steve Phelan’s website, with his headshots and a few acting scenes:

COOL! We authors are told to read our own work aloud for a fresh perspective on it. I made the mistake of letting my Kindle read it out loud. Ohhhh, torture me in hell instead! To have a fan with acting talent find your novel, read it, record it, send it to you — that’s quite an honor. For a blog host to want $20 a month for audio is just highway robbery. If you’re playing advertisements, and it leads to lotsa booksales, okay. Otherwise – meh. There are other places to post audio files.
I kind of like listening to my Kindle read my drafts…a little 🙂 It’s made some errors stand out better.
Very special…very special, indeed.
I hope to have it up here soon (with permission of course). Ty man!
