Are you sitting comfortably?

Then I'll begin. Well, actually, Simon Vance will begin. He's the narrator of the American audiobook of The Gentle Axe and you can download a sample of his reading here.

Hi Roger,

I think that must be a huge buzz, to hear someone reading your book aloud for others to enjoy. Have you heard the whole thing yet? Is it weird to hear someone else reading it?

Heavens, they put that together quickly! Congrats!

Er, where dear Roger may I hear this interview?

Thanks Aliya, Faye and cfr.

It's strange really, Aliya - it makes it seem even more removed from me. Simon Vance is listed as the jjoint author on amazon etc, sometimes his name comes first. I really do feel like it's more his creation than mine.

Faye, yes, and what was weird was that nobody told me it was being done. I found out when I saw it on amazon!

Ah, yes, cfr, well spotted. The link is wrong! I shall correct it now.

Thanks all,

Hi, Roger--

I know Blogger has been weirdly spotty about notification that comments are posted lately, so I'm posting up her to tell you to make sure you catch my comments on your Axe is Out post below.

The Axe news over here is all good!
