I Got to Narrate Bob, the New Middle Grade Book by Wendy Mass!

I Got to Narrate Bob, the New Middle Grade Book by Wendy Mass!

Wow. So this actually happened: an author tweets that she likes one of my audiobooks, so I tweet back “thanks,” and one thing leads to another and suddenly I’m in New York City at Penguin Random House Audio, recording the narration for her next book!

That’s Wendy Mass up there in the photo with me, New York Times bestselling author of middle-grade fiction including The Candymakers, A Mango-Shaped Space, and Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life. She’s teamed up with fellow NYT bestselling author Rebecca Stead on their latest creation, Bob. It’s a wonderful story about friendship, memory, and probably my favorite of all themes, coming home. (Btw, I performed “Bob,” and Nora Hunter performed “Livy.”)

March’s FREE audio sci-fi short, “Their DNA Was No Longer The Same,” posted to Listen To The Signal Podcast

March’s FREE audio sci-fi short, “Their DNA Was No Longer The Same,” posted to Listen To The Signal Podcast

Hey guys! I just read an article yesterday, about Mark and Scott Kelly, the twin astronauts, and how Scott came back after a record length trip aboard the International Space Station, and they found that his DNA was no longer identical to his twin, Mark. What an intriguing premise for a story, right? And I’m also a twin, so the idea wouldn’t get out of my head. I decided to make this one a little more like a series on conversations I might have with my twin brother if we were astronauts and something like this happened, so it reads more like a radio play, with nothing but dialog. Enjoy! Check out March’s FREE original audio sci-fi short story “Their DNA Was No Longer The Same” here.

Rob Dircks on Author’s Cut Live with Tabitha Lord

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of being interviewed on Book Club Babble’s “Author’s Cut Live” with author Tabitha Lord. It was a rip, as we got to trade notes on our writing process, working for a client, and navigating the self...

This week: Get both books in the Tesla series for only $1.98!

There’s nothing like waking up to a deal, am I right? Like that time you practically STOLE that Spice Shelf from Bed Bath & Beyond for only five bucks, and you walked out into the parking lot on a cloud, like you were Master of All Deals. Well, I’ve...

AudiobookReviewer.com’s Review is out… and it’s a winner!

This is a perfect and hilarious follow-up to Where the Hell is Tesla? I highly recommend reading the first novel before this second novel, simply because it’s a richer experience. There is a sum up of the first novel in this novel, however, just in case. As with the...
