“SADEs” Audiobook Released

The “SADEs” audiobook has been cleared thirteen days earlier than expected by ACX, Audible’s back end. Find it exclusively on Audible or Amazon.

Enjoy the wonderful voice of Susanna Burney, the new narrator. Now that Grover Gardner is no longer available, Susanna will be reading the remainder of the Silver Ships novels.

      Thanks, Renk. I hope the audiobook publishing process smooths out too. The problems are popping up in all aspects of the books. The “Earthers” cover was accepted for the ebook but rejected by the print department. Days later and after running down support, the print department said the cover was rejected in error. As the Omnians would say, “Black space.”

    Strange to find that it was a 62 bitrate file, almost thought I downloaded the part 1 link. Compared to the 126 bitrate of the previous book.

      There appears to be variance over the course of the series and from within the same production house. The MP3 chapter files I received from the new production company for “SADEs” were at 192kbps. I note that the files delivered to me for the first audiobook, “The Silver Ships,” were at 128kbps, while the last audiobook, “Alliance,” was at 320 kbps. All of these audio files are uploaded to ACX, Audible’s producer site. It’s ACX that processes the audio files for publishing to Audible.

    Grover Gardner has been the voice of the audio series that all of your audio listeners love. I am curious as to his unavailability. Is it an availability problem, or something else?

    Thanks,

      Hello Ryan, when the narration for “SADEs” should have been scheduled in January of this year, I found out that Grover Gardner had accepted a full-time senior producer position with Blackstone Audio. He was no longer available to narrate the series, which neccesitated a scramble to find an alternative reader.
