Wow, two-post day because we are being spoilt with news, audio, even moving pictures! As you all know, Richard’s debut thriller Geneva has dropped today via Audible.
Yes, I have already bought it and it is waiting for me to be listened to. And it appears that Audible has spared neither cost nor effort to promote the debut of their esteemed audio king. They have not only made a short teaser interview (released yesterday), but there is even a little video trailer. Check this out (or don’t, in case you don’t want to be SPOILERED):
Well, there is the next project, presented on a plate to White Boar Films 😉. And Richard won’t even have to splash out to acquire film rights!
[POTENTIAL SPOILERS CONTINUE, SO PROCEED WITH CAUTION AS I REFER BACK TO THE TRAILER!]
Jokes aside – I haven’t listened to Geneva yet, so I am equally delighted as surprised to hear Richard narrating the voice-over in first person singular. Which leads me to believe that there will be lots of “performance” in the audio book, including Richard as the main character’s husband. His involvement – the husband’s, that is – might be at the heart of the thriller? Only one way to find out…
But have we ever seen a full-fledged movie-trailer-style promo for an audio book? They really put some effort into this little clip, not only letting Richard enact the premise of the book but investing in a cast and a location to create a visual blurb. Don’t be fooled by the short length of the 30-second clip. That kind of stuff costs money… I am impressed!
