You say you want a revolution? We have one right here just in time for Christmas. First, the audiobooks, all in DRM-free MP3 format:
- The Last Closet by Moira Greyland. 14 hours 10 minutes. $19.99. Includes ebook
- Push the Zone by David the Good. 3 hours 17 minutes. $9.99. Includes ebook.
- A Magic Broken by Vox Day. 1 hour 43 minutes. $3.99. Includes ebook.
- Four Generations of Modern War by William S. Lind. 52 minutes. $3.99. Includes ebook.
This is all brand new to us, so if you have any problems with the process or if a file link is incorrectly assigned, please let us know and we will address it right away. Moira’s reading of her book is particularly good; her musical background is readily apparent.
Please note that we will never delay our ebook releases in order to create these digital bundles. Our production process is straightforward: ebook, print, audiobook. If you compare our prices with Audible and other audio options, it should be evident that you’re not paying for the ebook twice if you already own it, the inclusion of the ebook is merely added value for those who have not yet read the book and might like to be able to follow along with the audiobook.
In other book news, despite the metadata mixup that has temporarily the cover image out of the listing, THE DARK AVENGER’S SIDEKICK by John C. Wright is now available in a spectacular 596-page hardcover for $29.99 from Castalia House Direct. This is the trilogy that contains Moth & Cobweb Books 4-6: Daughter of Danger, City of Corpses, and Tithe to Tartarus and makes a handsome companion to The Green Knight’s Squire.
Some audiobook enthusiasts have asked us about the possibility of our developing a custom audiobook app that is integrated with our Arkhaven store. We have the technical capacity to do so, but our bandwidth is limited and it is a questionable use of our time and technical resources given the opportunity cost. Most likely, we would do a small crowdfunding for such a project in order to get an idea of the actual demand as opposed to the theoretical enthusiasm. If you have any thoughts on this, please feel free to share them here.
