The audiobook of Rise of Empire was expected to be released in June, but I am happy to announce the second volume of the six book trilogy is already available from Audible.com, (which can also be purchased via an Audible button on Amazon.)
As you can see below, the audio version of Rise is listed as number two in historical fantasy books. I suspect it has something to do with the imaginative cover art. (Note the little half-yellow book on the right still handing in there.)
The series continues to be narrated by Tim Gerard, a good, upstanding Irishman who does a fine job even if he sounds a bit more British than I would have expected. My friends down at the pub tell me that’s most likely because Tim is from Dublin—the eastern, Britishified side of the country. My families (the Sullivans and Flanagans) originally came from the southwest and northwest of the isle respectively, still I don’t hold that against him—after all St. James Gate is in Dublin, too.
