Audio Fiction

September 19, 2010

I love listening to stories and novels performed.  It was quite a treat when we got to watch a performance reading of one of L. Ron Hubbard’s stories in LA with WotF.  But that’s not what this is about.  I loved the audio performances for the Harry Potter books.  But this isn’t about that, either.  This is about trying to get audio performances of MY stuff.

I’m told that there will be an audio version of Writers of the Future 26…eventually.  It would be badass if some of the same performers from the reading were involved, but I’d be surprised.  Besides, my story should properly be read by a woman, I would think.  It is told from a woman’s point of view despite the fact that I am not a woman.  (Trust me on that.)  This was how I experienced WotF 24 and I loved it.

I recently sent “Leech Run” to Escape Pod for consideration.  (Recently as in ten minutes ago.)  It is currently out in print in Zero Gravity and I think Escape Pod could help create some buzz for the book if they like the story.

I also sent the as-yet-unsold story GB to another audio market, Sniplits.  I think the story will lend itself well to an audio performance despite the trouble I’m having placing it.

I’ll be shocked if both stories get picked up; it would make my day if either one did.  The prospect of an audio version of my work is second only to the anticipation I felt waiting to see the artwork for my WotF story.  I’m not by definition holding my breath, but I’m breathing very shallowly.

    I have a story under “final consideration” at sniplits. Hopefully they pick it up, I would squee to hear it read.

    Good luck! It’d be fun to hear your stuff too 🙂

    I sent a story to Sniplits before. They rejected it. 😦

    But they do some good stuff there; I really like that market.

    Hope Sniplits works out for both of you!
