Gabe Has Found His Voice!

It’s been four months in the making, but I’m thrilled to announce that “Killing Hope” – (Gabe Quinn Thriller #1) is now available in audio format as a downloadable audiobook from Amazon, Audible and iTunes, and it sounds absolutely amazing!

The narrator, David Doersch, has done an excellent job of fleshing out the characters, individualizing their voices and, of course, staying true to Gabe’s roots by giving him an earthy Memphis accent. It’s like the whole book has enjoyed a new lick of paint and is now brighter and bolder than ever!

In preparation for the recording, “Hope” underwent a complete refit. I made editorial changes to the manuscript to enhance the audio experience. Nothing too drastic, just a little fine-tuning here and there to allow the spoken words to flow much more smoothly off of the tongue. The updated version features a brand new Prologue, with some scenes I deemed surplus-to-requirement being removed. The end result is tighter, fresher and spectacular. In fact, the recording has created an exciting new dimension to the book by coloring characters and injecting real feeling into the narration. It’s like “Hope” has been given a whole new lease of life and she’s much sprightlier for it!

As the print version is chunky, the audiobook is lengthy, running just short of 13 hours, which is plenty of time for the listener to immerse themselves totally in the experience. And it’s addictive. What becomes apparent as the story unfolds is that everything feels bigger – the locations, the players, the plots – making this audio version essential listening for every Gabe Quinn enthusiast.

When I was thirteen, my English teacher - who was fed up with reading my space stories - told me I'd never make it as a science fiction writer. Undeterred, I went on to pen several sci-fi novels and three comedy stage plays, in and around raising a family. Thirty years later, and in a bid to make some real money from my writing, I switched genres and started to write mysteries. It was the best move I ever made. Now my self-published crime thrillers have sold more than 160,000 copies on Amazon alone and notched up over a third of a million downloads worldwide. Finally, I have given up paid employment and do my dream job full-time. I'm genuinely grateful for my break and, despite my head still being full of those space stories, I try my best to keep my feet planted firmly on the ground.
