SLURRY – Now Available in AudioBook

I can’t tell you how many people have asked for audiobook versions of the novels. It’s something that has been on my radar for years. Last week, I was invited to participate in a pilot from Amazon where they would convert my novels to an audio format and make them available on Audible!

The program uses something they call “virtual voice” which is basically an AI speech-to-text program. I know what you’re thinking: no way that sounds any good. I felt the same way but I tested a sample. Believe it or not, it sounds pretty darn good. The virtual voice is quite life-like. It adds inflection and nuance in a way I never expected. I was able to go in and teach the program how to pronounce certain words that it struggled with. I’m not saying it sounds exactly like a human, but it is very listenable for sure.

After editing the text, I listened to all of Slurry in the Audible app. I can confidently recommend it. Would love to hear what you all think. I am considering doing the same thing for The False Favorite. The cost at the time of writing this post is $3.99 for the audiobook (only $1.99 if you already own the ebook version). It uses the Audible app to play.

Buy the Slurry Audiobook & Listen to a Sample of Virtual Voice!
