I'm terribly excited to be a part of an audio story-sharing project in celebration of all the loveliest things: audiobooks, writing, free stuff, literacy. Here's the basics:
June is Audiobook month (JIAM 2013). The audiobook community is giving back by teaming with the Going Public Project by offering a serialized audio story collection. All proceeds will go to Reach Out and Read literacy advocacy organization. Throughout June, 1-2 stories will be released each day on the Going Public blog and on author/book blogs. The story will be free (online only – no downloads) for one week. In collaboration with Blackstone Audio, all the stories will be available for download via Downpour. The full compilation will be ready June 30th.
The full schedule of the story release dates and narrators are at Going Public. Engineering and Mastering are provided by Jeffrey Kafer and SpringBrook Audio. Graphic design provided by f power design and published by Blackstone Audio. Project coordination and executive production by Xe Sands.
Yesterday was Hilary Huber reading Guy du Maupassant at AudioGals and tomorrow is Adam Verner reading Jack London at Anita Loves Books but today (Happy Father's Day!), I'm delighted to present Kaleo Griffith's reading of Mark Twain's The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.Listen to (and buy if you like) the Jumping Frogs! (And check out Kaleo's post over at Going Public.)
