I'm thrilled to finally be able to share the news that ZOMBIES AT TIFFANY'S will be available in Audio via Spokenworld. This is going to be recorded on 20th September and I will be there to enjoy the fun and meet Director/producer Neil Gardner and reader Stephanie Cannon (You'll remember her from the ZOMBIES IN NEW YORK AND OTHER BLOODY JOTTINGS AUDIO).
A blog, photos, and possibly a podcast of events from the day to follow. Should be fun!
Press release below for full details:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Zombies Attack Your Ears!
Stephen James Walker and David J Howe, Editorial Directors of Telos
Publishing are delighted to announce that audio rights to Sam Stone's
Steampunk horror novella ZOMBIES AT TIFFANY'S have been picked up by
Neil Gardner at Spokenworld Audio.
'We've long been an admirer of Neil's work in the audio field,' says
David Howe. 'He's a great supporter of genre fiction and audio, and so
when he approached us about whether the rights to Sam's book were
available, we were over the moon.'
'I am extremely excited to be bringing the zombie-infused adventure of
Kat Lightfoot to audio,' says Spokenworld Audio MD and lead producer
Neil Gardner. 'Having previously produced Sam's short horror story
collection ZOMBIES IN NEW YORK AND OTHER BLOODY JOTTINGS on behalf of
AudioGO, I jumped at the chance to work on another of her brilliant
stories, and bring Sam to my own audiobook label. We have the fantastic
Stephanie Cannon back to read, and will be indulging our love for
adding music and sound effects. Hopefully this will be just the first
of many Sam Stone audiobooks that Spokenworld Audio will be producing
... she is a unique talent who brings creativity and incredible
imagination to everything she writes.'
'I can't wait to hear what Neil and the crew at Spokenworld do with my
Zombies,' says Sam Stone. 'I was absolutely delighted with their work
on my short story collection, and I know that they will do a fantastic
job on this book too. It's a pleasure hearing my characters come alive
in this way ...'
Autumn 2013 sees Spokenworld Audio rapidly expanding its audiobook
