This is a quick note for those of you who prefer the spoken word to the written one – I know there are many of you.
I have recently completed narrating my latest book Sherpa Hospitality as a Cure for Frostbite, and it’s now available as an audiobook on a number of platforms, including Amazon, Audible, iTunes, Nook, Scribd, Libro.fm, Audiobooks.com and many more. Check your favourite audiobook site if it’s not listed here.
Sherpa Hospitality as a Cure for Frostbite is an anthology of posts from this blog, exploring the evolution of Sherpa mountaineers from the porters of early expeditions to the superstar climbers of the present day. The posts have been substantially re-edited and knitted together into a three-part story. It contains a mix of humour, history, controversy and analysis to help the pages race along in an informative and entertaining way. You can read more and get your copy here.
I described my journey as an audiobook narrator in a couple of previous posts as I was completing the narration for The Chomolungma Diaries and my narrating and production skills are improving all the time. While I don’t have the range of voices of a professional actor, my voice is authentic and, hey – it’s me!
As more and more of my sales are now coming from audiobooks, I have plans to record the rest of my diaries over the coming months, so watch this space.
And if you’re a reader rather than a listener (as I am too), you’ll be happy to know that Sherpa Hospitality is now available in all three formats – ebook, audiobook and paperback (but apologies for those of you who prefer hardback; for the time being you’ll still need to read the paperback with a brick resting on your lap).
