Wow, that's pretty awesome. Scott, you have my permission to post a link to your site wherever you please! I know there are a lot of people here who are interested in the Covenant books on audio. Definitely a big announcement. Good luck!-jay


That's great, Jay, I really appreciate it. And speaking as someone who's read FATAL REVENANT twice now (once to prep, once out loud), I think you'll dig it.

Best,

Scott

I live.

Another? In two words, a story sadder than the first. Say no more -- with one word you will make me weep.

Scott needs to see the Runes-tar, me thinks...

Or have you made a FR one yet?

Giantish voices...! Talk about a challenge. In my head I'd always heard them as this deep bass rumble, but then I reread LORD FOUL'S BANE and saw Foamfollower's voice described as... get read for this... a gentle falsetto.

Oy. That ain't me, folks. My voice isn't anywhere close to a falsetto, so hopefully everyone will be using their imagination on that one.

Best,

Scott Laughing

LOL....I'm hoping SRD meant a falsetto for a Giant Laughing I cant picture Foamfollower with a high fluting voice like the Unfettered of Glimmermere, NOOOO... hehe, well maybe when he got waist deep in Hotash Slay Shocked Im sure you will nail it, and im glad your voice doesnt do falsetto, good luck man...I dont think you will have any problems.

Ahh, that's astounding and fantastic news. Can I assume that these will be unabridged?

You bet, all the books will be unabridged. I personally can't stand abridgements. In the audio industry, we call that "the A word."

FYI, everyone: I just posted the first chapter of LORD FOUL'S BANE on the website, if you want a free preview.

Man. Awesome news! So thanks for that AudioCov. I don't listen to books on tape, but there are plenty of my local friends who do! They'll be plenty excited.

Hey, Jay...maybe this would assist you in "reading" Fatal Revenant a whole lot quicker? Ya know: it's easier to listen than read (at least that's the theory). Big Grin




Thats one thing I was just thinking about,the reading speed.Scott reads at a more moderate pace then some of the many other narrators I have heard do parts of this series over the years.

I think I prefer the pace Scott took it at with LFB.Cant wait to hear more !
and buy it as well !

The first chapter's almost enough to make me buy an audio book. To this day, the only one I've been able to get through was Capote's In Cold Blood (don't know who the narrator was). Scott sounds like Sideshow Bob minus the ham factor. Wink

I really enjoyed the pacing. The cadence is very suited to how it 'sounds' in my head. The accent (not sure that's the right word... inflection, perhaps) is just enough to maintain interest, never taking away from the story itself.

OK, I laughed at that one! For some reason that just got me tickled. But, it is spot on, which is why its so funny.

Lest we forget (and this thread disappears as time passes), I've added a link to Scott's site at the bottom of the main page. I think it's fitting that we support those who share our fandom Smile
