Yep, folks, the audiobook version of Hardcore Zen is now available from the nice folks at CD Baby! Just follow the link below to get yours!
See what it did for Melissa? Here are a few more reasons to buy the audiobook:
• I have personally enhanced the audiobook! Now you don’t just have to imagine what “Drop the A-Bomb On Me!” sounds like. You can hear it for yourself in the context of the story! And that’s not all. There are plenty of other groovy enhancements as well!
• You may get an email directly from me! That’s because track #9 is kind of screwed up. Until the replacement goes live, I’ll be contacting everyone who buys the book and submits their email address to CD Baby to tell them where to get the fixed version. (The current version isn’t horrible. It just has one short segment in which you can hear two Brad Warners reading instead of only one.) If you got the audiobook but didn’t hear from me about the link, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• I get way more percentage of the audiobook than I do from the plain old printed book! Wisdom Publications gives me something like 14%. So when you buy the book from Amazon or a similar discount site that nets me less than $1 per book after all the other mystery items are subtracted. But I get something like a 75% royalty from each $10 audiobook. Granted, this is more of a reason I want you to buy the audiobook than any real advantage of the audiobook itself…
• You get to hear me read the book in my own voice! Not only do I have a super sexy voice. But now you can find out what sort of tone I intended. I think a lot of people imagined I was screaming at them when they read that book. But I wasn’t. I swear.
And thanks to everyone who participated in filming the new commercial “Melissa’s Not a Loser Anymore!” (seen above) last night. These are the participants in my weekly Sunday night zazen thing at the Akron Shambhala Center in Cuyahoga Falls (every Sunday at 7pm!). They were awesome and very patient. Now I need to get myself a tripod and think of some more commercial ideas.
