Here's a bit of exciting news. About a month ago I was contacted by some people who are setting up a new site for books with audio tracks – www.booktrack.com.
The idea is that authors add music and effects to their novels to create a new reading experience.
I was asked to do this for ‘The Guest Who Stayed’. So far I’ve worked on chapter 1 and you can see how it works by going to http://goo.gl/cgN0c1 .
The launch is tomorrow. It’s supported by Google and could be the next big thing in book publishing. Why not take a look and be one of the first to try it out. It appears to be free.
The software is clever. You can vary your reading speed but the sound effects still happen at the right time. Don’t know how they do it but it’s pretty cool.
Enjoy – and let me know what you think. If you tell me it’s good I’ll do some more chapters.
