Hello. I'm a bit late on announcing this, but life has a way of creating obstacles for us to clear every once in a while that prevents us from doing what we want to do. Some goddamn impossible, like my testicles being blown off in a horrible murder-suicide gone wrong, and some merely ass-numbingly boring, like explosive diarrhea.
None of the obstacles I'm talking about were as harrowing, but I'm out of the way of a few obstacles for a second, so I'd like to tell you guys about the recently released audio book version of my story, Autonomously Yours. The title is a tad hyperbolic, but one thing that is entirely truthful is that it's a fucked up story, in the best of ways. Here, let a reader tell you:
"I loved this book. A very interesting story about a mild mannered robotics engineer who develops an ultra-realistic "sex doll" robot for a sleazy businessman. As part of the testing before the robot is put on sale in the black market, he must monitor her "activities" with clients through her eyes on his monitor. Well written and disturbing at times, but in a good way."
Let's take a look at the last line in that beautiful review. "...Disturbing at times, but in a good way," is the blurb I want written on my headstone when I die.
Creating an audio book has definitely been an interesting experience. There's nothing like a late 40s/early 50s (Sorry to the kind Steve Rausch, the man who brought my book to life, but that's the age his voice sounds to me) try to imitate a girl in her 20s as she talks cute and dirty to a chubby man in his 40s. I created that scenario. I did. And now you can listen to it and feel uncomfortable with the rest of the world.
Please head on over to Amazon.com, iTunes, or Audible.com and give the sample a listen, and, if you'd like, download yourself a full copy. It's a story I'm very proud of. Especially the disturbing parts.
