Some of my fondest memories from childhood are from those long car trips I’d take with my family for vacation. We rarely took a plane anywhere, so it wasn’t uncommon for us to be in a car for eight hours a day as we headed to places like Disney World or the Beach.
Why would I have fond memories of the car trip? Well, as a family we’d always pick out a great “Book on Tape” to listen to (yes I said Tape). I heard Jurassic Park before it came out as a movie. I listened to the Empire Strikes back on tape (which is really well done if you haven’t ever had a chance to pick it up). In fact, I listened to some of the best stories I’ve ever been exposed to while my brother, sister and I were packed into the back seat of my parents old white Ford Taurus station wagon.
All that said, its with great excitement and pleasure that I announce the Audio edition of 900 Miles is now available on Audible today. Hearing my own story being told through the car speakers is truly an amazing experience (yes, I’m a big geek).
I kinda feel like I hit the jackpot with Audible when my agent emailed me to let me know that Audible snagged Jamison Jones to help bring 900 Miles to life. Jamison is a really cool guy, who has a long roster of movies, TV shows and audio voice work under his belt. Not only has he acted in TV shows like The Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Burn notice and 24, he’s also done some voice work for Star Wars Rebel Assault II. (all of which I thought was totally awesome!)
While I had little to do with the final product (outside of Audible using my story), I have to say that I’m really pleased with the final result. The production quality and great voice acting done by Jamison really brought the story to life in a way I didn’t imagine possible.
If you’re interested in checking it out, you can find it on Amazon by clicking here. You can even get it for free by joining Audible’s 30 day free trial (I think you can cancel anytime).
Anyway, if you pick up a copy, you’ll have to let me know what you think!
