Cast in Flame is audio book is available now, plus Worldcon & Spoiler thread

Posted in Audio books, Elantra.

Cast in Flame redCast in Flame is the first of the Cast books to be published by Tantor. It was available as a download from Tantor directly; it is now available from audible​.com as well.

It does not appear to have gone live on iTunes yet, but I’ll be checking and will add live links to the book page when they appear.

I had a great time in London for the Worldcon. One of the best things about conven­tions – and most of the reason I attend them – is to talk to my readers. In London, I met people I’ve known on-line for almost two decades (and I may have, in one case, squeaked “You’re the lawyer!”); I know I spoke with Estara for a while before I actually looked at her name tag. People intro­duced them­selves who lurk, rather than post — and that was also good.

I also met authors I had never met in person — Sarah Rees Brennan comes imme­di­ately to mind, and kind of stays there, larger than life; I played Gloom in front of an audience, instead of talking on a panel; I got a lot of exercise I wouldn’t have gotten if I had stayed home and struggled with writing (largely because the convention centre was very, very, very long, and I was in a hotel on the wrong end of it).

And now I am desper­ately behind in email and every­thing else, but: audiobooks!

Also: If you are more comfortable talking about the book on the web-site, this is the thread to do it in. No one who hates spoilers should read any further.

    From a readers perspective it was great meeting you at Worldcon too. As my first convention it was really fun to attend and the panels were great, so one to bookmark for future years when its (hope­fully) in easy trav­elling distance. thanks for the clar­i­fi­cation on how you pronounce Bellusdeo’s name :)

    It was lovely seeing you and Tom again at Worldcon. See you next year in Spokane. Hope­fully they can schedule your kaffeeklatch against some­thing other than our busiest time in the Art Show…

    So exciting that CiF is out in Audio book now. I love the perfor­mance of the story but I couldn’t wait until it was out so I always buy both (e-book and audio versions). I wonder though, how come the audio book is so far behind in release than the e-book version?

      I think — and I may be entirely wrong about this — that it was in part delayed so that we could have the same narrator — she started work on it at the beginning of August. I haven’t actually asked her; I just know she started then because she mentioned it on facebook. And I was happy to have her continue to narrate these books — people love her narration.

        I know I defi­nitely do. And I’m happy to wait if it means KH will be performing it. I just get crazy waiting because the story is so incredibly amazing and KH brings it to life in a way that I just can’t by reading it on my own.
        Your story, your char­acters, her perfor­mance of it. Perfection all the way!!

    Great to meet you too and have the chance to chat. I shall lurk (stalk!) no longer, and treasure my signed copy of Battle :-)

    For some reason Audible in Australia only has the first 3 books and now the newest book. At first glance I thought the audiobook cover was very Hobbit romancey which cracked me up but then I realised it wasn’t a Hobbit door but was remi­niscent of the ‘normal’ cover. What are people’s thoughts on the audiobook cover?

    I’m still waiting for one of my copies to arrive as it got lost along the way or perhaps inad­ver­tently left off my order. One was for a friend’s birthday so I had to give her that one (drat!) and then borrow it off her. Luckily she is a fast reader!

    I was a (tad) miffed at the minor delay from Tantor but the recording copy on Audible was up to the normal very high quality sniff! Only bad part was watch my Mom try not to spoil the book as she just read it.

    I have read Cast in Flame twice , can’t wait for next book, Cast in Flame opens the door for all kinds of adven­tures, just thinking out loud.

    Who can I send begging letters to for audio books in my part of the world? The first three and Cast in Flame are available to South Africa through Audible, but the others are not.

  9. La Femme says:

    So I delayed in buying Flame simply because I knew I would be heart­broken by the wait after I finished it, but I finally could not stand it any longer (after re-reading the ENTIRE series) and now as expected I will sulk until I know when I can look for Cast in Honor.

  10. Sivi Sivanesan says:

    I did the exact same thing as Le Femme and I imagine a good many of the readers of the Elantra chron­icles: I only finished the re-read and now Flame 5minutes ago., I have now joined my fellow trav­ellers in the wait until Honour. Flame was a great book and I loved the closing scenes of Flame. Thanks for writing it.
