I’m stoked to announce that Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is in production now! This is another dream come true for me. I’ve always harbored a long-shot desire to see one of my books made into a TV show or movie. I even cast the actors in my mind as I’m writing. But turning my book into a TV show is not a goal in my power to reach. That’s a total dream. I cannot make that happen.
But recently I became aware of Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), where publishers and narrators can find each other and collaborate on audiobook projects. I got to listen to some excellent narration auditions, and it was just amazing to hear the voices of my characters come alive. Audiobooks are probably as close as my books will come to the screen (silver, small, or otherwise), and I am beyond excited about the actress who will be narrating Charlotte Collins! She is truly fantastic.
At this point, I cannot even begin to predict when the audiobook will be available for sale. (According to the contract, it may take ACX 6 months to put the book on sale. Yikes.) But it’s in the works.
This is my first foray into audiobooks, so I don’t have a full understanding of the process yet, but if you’re interested in learning more about audiobooks, I’ll be blogging about what I’ve learned so far at Indie Jane on Friday.
