I’m about 20K words away from finishing the draft of Drury Lane. (For me, about 80 pages.) Then will come rewrites / revisions (which take nowhere near as long as writing the first draft), then editing by an outside editor, then proofing. I will do my best to get the print version out alongside the e- version or very soon thereafter. As soon as I type “The End” I will post a pub date! (I already know it, but again, the whole jinx thing is keeping me from saying it yet.)
I’m also interested in getting Captain Lacey out in audio. I think this series would lend itself well to being read aloud.
That said, I’ve heard from audiobook companies that cozy mysteries sell poorly in audio. Mystery fans, are you audiobook fans? I’ve listened to mystery audiobooks (the Cadfael series; Dick Francis; Mary Higgins Clark), and while I’m not a huge audiobook fan (I like to read fast), I enjoyed them.
Opinions? Would you like Captain Lacey in audio? Is it worth it for me to pursue it?
