    Audio Books

    Hi Kay,
    I’m a diehard fan of your The Entire and The Rose series. I got the first two at audible but the new book (which I have in hardcover from Amazon) is not in audio book form yet. Why is that?

    The audio version of City Without End is scheduled to be available on February 24. Audible’s intention was to time it with the release of the hardcover, but the hardcover shipped a tad early, so we don’t quite have it yet. Thanks for asking.

    I am working feverishly on Book Four which is now called Prince of Storms. I was rather discouraged over last few days about a few plot threads. Today, it all came together, thank God. I don’t know if you know many writers, but they are often in a bad mood when the writing is going poorly, and then do an about face when it’s going well. Superficial creatures!

    Thanks for the update. I love the way that you write and am planning to read your other books. I will purchase City Without End on audio book Feb 24th even though I’m reading it in hardcover now. Will your other books be available at audible or on the Kindle? It’s easier to listen to an audio book because of my schedule.

    Warm regards,
    Marshina Mitchell

    No plans so far for other audio books — or Kindle.
    I’d love to see Tropic of Creation on audio. Or The Seeds of Time; I guess those are my favs from the backlist.
