Part of the LYCCYX universe, the Valley End High series describes some of the events that take place on Earth while the main story of LYCCYX focuses on the lunar colony know as LB127.
Targeted Age Group: all
Genre: mystery, thriller, short stories
I wanted to explore what takes place on Earth while the main story of LYCCYX occurs. Barnes is an interesting character in a unique predicament. In the first installment, Valley End High, he has just found himself starting a new job as a security officer at the largest high school in the world.
He has no memory of anything before that morning. He has no idea why he is working there and has an uncomfortable feeling that this place may not be what it appears to be on the surface.
When you wrote the book did you know you were going to offer it as an audio book?
Why did you decide to produce an audio book?
My first audiobook, A Stormy Night, did extremely well and I figured I might as well use ACX to create an audio version of the Valley End High series. These are perfect for when you want a complete experience but don’t have the time to invest in a full-length novel.
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
ACX made that all so simple. I heard about them shortly after publishing my first eBook and decided to give them a try.
Eric Nutting sent me an audition for Valley End High and I really felt that he captured the character of Barnes perfectly. I immediately asked if he would do both stories in the series and was delighted that he agreed.If someone is thinking about creating an audio book, what advice would you give them?
Try ACX, especially if you already have eBooks on Amazon. I couldn’t imagine an easier way to produce a quality audiobook. What else would you like to share with readers about your audio book?
I don’t know how long it will last, but Amazon is offering the first episode, Valley End High for $1.99 when you buy the eBook for $0.99. Since most audiobooks start around $7, this is a phenomenal deal. Also, for Audible members it can be had for one member credit.
The third installment of Valley End High is coming soon so be sure to check out the first two.
