As you might imagine, it was a strange week for everyone. I did a bit of Photoshop work and got a Friday story scheduled and … that’s about it.
Here’s the thing. You might be super creative during this time. In which case, go you! You might not. In which case, go you! Do what you need to during this time, whether that’s binge-watching or binge-cleaning, along with keeping yourself and others as safe as possible.
Some random things that you might find helpful:
Judicious social media blocking. There are many app and social media blockers. I use Freedom. Keep yourself from reneging on your promise NOT to check social media (and avoid the inevitable guilt spiral). Seriously. It works.
Finally, the first season of Coffee and Ghosts is nearly everywhere in audio. There are a few holdouts, but it’s making its way through distribution.
You can find it all over, too. Check your library because you might be able to check it out right away or request it.
In the meantime, you can list to episode one for free.
I can’t say how much I love Amy’s narration. She’s really captured Katy’s voice and the overall feel of the Coffee and Ghosts world. I couldn’t be happier (and season three is coming my way for review in a week or so).

So, you guys! I’m in audio! Well, I’m not, but two of my publications are. Both The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet and The Maze: Three Tales of the Future are available in audio from Audible, iTunes, and Amazon (see links below).
The narrator, Ashley Klanac, did a fantastic job with both titles. Also, below, you can click to listen to a sample of each.
I have some promotion codes for a free copy. If you enjoy audio books and would like to listen to either or both, send me a note via the contact form. Bonus points if you listen and leave a rating/review at Audible. I have it on good authority that Audible loves it *this much* when you do that.
Otherwise, I wrote what may be my first historical short story this week. I’m kind of psyched about that, although not so much about the title.
The Maze: Three Tales of the Future is now available in audio format via Audible, and you can download the audio book from Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.
The same narrator who performed The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet also narrated these stories. I think she did a fantastic job. She had a knack for knowing exactly how I wanted something read or where the emphasis in certain sentences should be. In short: she was amazing.
