For anyone who is confused, allow me to explain.
A while back I began giving away my novella, Lost and Found, on my blog a chapter at a time. One of the coolest things about that project (aside from the amazing cover illustration) was that Bill Ratner was recording each chapter in super high-quality audio format. Things happened though, and the audio bits fell a little behind, however, now, they are done!
You can now hear Lost and Found in its entirety as read by Bill Ratner.
If you haven’t listened to it, you need to. Seriously. Here, let me help–this is chapter one:

I have a rule against reading my own work after publication because it drives me crazy. I notice all the story’s imperfections, all the things I want to change, but it’s too late. The audio version of this story is a huge glaring exception to that rule. When I listen to Bill read my words I am filled with so much pride that it brings tears to my eyes. I don’t hear the individual words, the miss-placed commas or the things I could have done better, I just hear the story. And it’s a good story.
At some point I hope Lost and Found will be available in print and/or e-book versions, but in the meantime, I promie you won’t be wasting your time by listening to the audio version.

And Bill? Thank you so much. I don’t think I can truly make you understand what a gift this has been for me. You are made of awesome. Truly.
