Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Time is Irreverent 2, the audiobook

Audiobooks are wonderful, but they’re time consuming to produce. I’m currently working with Nate C. Maughan, the great narrator for my new novel, Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! I know a lot of authors do their own narration, but I don’t do multiple voices, and I think audiobooks should be performances, not just dry narration.

For the past month, I have been living with headphones on, going back-and-forth with Nate, making sure he doesn’t miss any words and that he projects my vision. We’re about a week from being done, and the audiobook is going to be hilarious. Last night Nate sent me a section, where he portrays Nellie Dixon doing a Valley Girl routine about people who don’t vote. I literally broke into applause!

Still, I can’t wait to get these headphones off. Look for the audiobook in mid-March.
