Gasp! Disillusionist trilogy coming to audiobook soon!

What will audio Justine be like? 
Well, the summer of exciting things (or at least, exciting-to-me-things) continues with Audible picking up the Disillusionist trilogy!


Which means that they are probably currently casting somebody to be the voice of Justine Jones.


What will this Justine be like? I have her voice in my head, but I could not tell you what it sounds like in the world. This is just so exciting. A voice actress will bring a whole new dimension of interpretation to the books. She will have to make choices on how to say each line. She will sort of have to decide what kind of person Justine is. The whole thing is both scary and wonderful.


All three audiobooks will be out this October. Which means, if you are an audiobook aficionado, the release of book #3 is a bit over a month early - digital comes out December 6, and later in 2012 for print.


I know the different release times of #3 may seem wacky, but my main aim has always been to make book #3 the best damn book I can write, and that the book would be available to the most readers in the most forms, and this is how I put it together…non linear as it may appear! And let me say, I am feverishly excited about #3.


 All three books will be available through audible.com (and, I think, all other online bookstores where Mind Games and Double Cross are sold, but I'm not entirely clear on the details - I'll post when I have more.)


Anyway, that is a new awesome thing at Casa Crane. If I get a sneak snippet of Justine's voice, I'll post it if I can. Eeeep!

This is awesome news congratulations!!! I love audio books and one of my favorite things to do is "re-read" a book in audio format. Looks like I'm in luck. :)

Oh, these will be great as audiobooks! The most important question of course, is whether Justine will have a Chicago accent or a Milwaukee accent!

Yaqy! What amazing news!! I'm so happy for you (and us of course too! ;-p) Carolyn! And how exciting to finally hear Justine's voice outside your head! (though must be a bit terrifying too) What exciting news! First ebooks, then Tv-áseries option, now audiobooks, wonderful news, congratulations!! :-D

When I read the books, I 'hear' Justine as kind of gravelly, not in a bad way, just sort of throaty. I really look forward to getting the series in audio.
