Update on The Red Poet Audiobook


As I’ve mentioned in posts up-to and after the release of The Red Poet, our amazing audiobook narrator Adam Gold has had some real life issues pop up and this has delayed him being able to work on the audiobook. Up until today, I thought he was delayed to get to The Red Poet and The Queen’s Consort (Book 5) until late 2023 / early 2024. This was our last correspondence on the issues. However, Adam let me know today that because of damage to his vocal cords and a need to reduce his vocal schedule, he will not be able to record The Red Poet until May 2026 and The Queen’s Consort would likely be June or July 2026, by implication.

Because of this, I need to make a hard decision: either wait until mid-2026 to start on recording the The Red Poet and any future book in the series, or recast a narrator and likely redo the entire series with new voices. What do you, dear reader, think about this?

There are other updates that I will try to post in the upcoming couple of months. I’ve been working on a browser-based game where you get to train at a magical university that is being revealed in The Queen’s Consort. There are 80+ people who have tried the game so far, but I need to make some optimizations and implement some of the world boss battles with Orcus, Demogorgon, etc. before I release more information on joining. There is ongoing progress toward the 5th book in general.

But there is also this unfortunate news from Adam. I think we have to move on to a different narrator, and that will be a time-consuming process. Again, let me know what you guys think about this. There’s no easy answer.
