Audiobook version of ‘Midnight Sweatlodge’ set to ship to crowdfunders
It took a few weeks longer than anticipated, but the audiobook version of Waubgeshig Rice‘s Midnight Sweatlodge is now a reality for its over 200 backers on Kickstarter.
Clocking in at around 2 hours, the four stories were performed by none other than yours truly over a number of late-night sessions at Precursor Productions in Winnipeg. Although the learning curve was unavoidably steep at times—this marks my official debut as an audiobook narrator (and producer, for that matter)—I have enjoyed every minute of it, and daresay I look forward to the next opportunity to take on another such project.
For folks who did not take part in last December’s crowdfunder, you can now buy the audiobook on-line as a digital download.
Here’s a sample (the book’s preface):
