The audiobook version of the novel Green Comet is now available in an improved and remastered form. It is also available as a direct download from this site rather than by a link to the Internet Archive. The original version was not bad and it received many compliments from listeners who found my voice both professional and pleasant to listen to. This remaster benefits from a more strict adherence to the audio standards generally accepted in the audiobook industry. It has also been cleaned up and freed from some lingering glitches. The result is something that I’m proud to present to the world.
Please visit the Books for Free page and download the Green CometAUDIOBOOK in both MP3 and OGG Vorbis formats. They come with the individual chapters bound in ZIP archives.
I will be remastering the other two books in the Green Comet trilogy as I find the time. Look for improved audiobooks of Parasite Puppeteers and The Francesians in the coming months.
I’ve just done my last pass of the proofreading and editing of The Prime. The corrections were getting pretty trivial, so I decided it was time to move on. Now I’m going to try something new with this book. With my previous books I went on from final proofing to formatting the final presentation version of the ebook. Only after that did I record it for the audiobook. My reasoning was that it was a lot easier to make corrections to text than to audio, so don’t do the recording until you have the final text version complete. That is changing this time. I’m going to use the reading and recording as the final proofing. Reading it out loud can sometimes expose errors or awkwardness, so it will give me one last chance to improve it before releasing it into the wild. On the downside, it means a longer wait for publication. On the upside, it means a shorter wait for the audiobook after publication.
There’s something else I have to sort out. The Prime has been my working title, and I’ve begun to think of it as the real title, but I’m not sure about that. I’ve been trying to think of something to replace it with, but nothing is coming to me yet.
