The day has arrived.
You can now buy Ghost Notes the Audio Book at my website.
If you order the audio book--and I hope you do--it will arrive as five burned disks in less than a week, and it will be exactly the same version you'll be able to download from CDBaby and other places in the coming weeks. If you want it now, I want you to have it now. Take a listen to the sample to get some idea of what you're in for.
Until recently, I thought I'd have music in only one or two chapters, but it found its way into six! Anyone who remembers the "musical rendering" performances I did with Stuck Outside of Phoenix knows how much I love to combine the two genres.
This burned edition of the audio book is available for $10, and I suspect that's the minimum of what the online vendors will charge for the download (they all run their own shows, so I can't dictate what they charge).
The same shipping charges apply for all Defunct merchandise, which is $5 for any order under $20. You can avoid the shipping charge by pairing your audio book order with one of my other products. In other words, for $5 more, you can have a real world copy of Ghost Notes, or Stuck Outside of Phoenix, or Songs from Memory. If you already have them, keep an extra copy around to give as a gift. You will not find a better deal anywhere!
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the people who made the audio book happen:
James Lorenz. Thank you for your stellar voice talent, your flexibility, and your follow-through. Your great work pushed me to make this better than I probably would have on my own. I am in your debt.
Bret Hartley. Thank you for taking my panicky recording, mixing and mastering calls. No one has been more instrumental in helping me fulfill my producing and engineering potential than you. I'm in your debt (again).
Tim Anthonise and Jim Gerke. Thank you for allowing me to include portions of "Nickel" in the audio book. I am in your debt (again).
So, buy Ghost Notes the Audio Book for that long summer trip, or for your commute to work, or for your iPod, or for your home or home-studio enjoyment. I'd love to know what you think of it. Don't be shy with your comments.
Yours in laying down the law,
