We’re thrilled to announce that Yesterday’s Gone: Season One is now available on Audible!
One of the questions we’re most often asked is when will we do more audio books? We flirted briefly with reading Yesterday’s Gone via a podcast, but it was a ton of work (hundreds of hours of reading, recording, and then creating the files, and the monthly cost of hosting them) and in the end, after some iTunes issues, it was just a giant pain in the ass.
If we’re going to spend hundreds of hours and dollars on something, we’d rather be bringing you another book.
Plus, Sean and I hate our reading voices.
Still, we know there are tons of audio fans who either a) don’t know us or b) are waiting for our books to be available in audio format.
Then Podium Publishing approached us, asking if we’d be interested in audio books for WhiteSpace.
Yes, they were fans of WhiteSpace before Yesterday’s Gone, which was thrilling to us!
We didn’t want to sign our audio rights away to just anyone, though.
We had lots of questions, and liked everything they had to say. It also helped that they’d recently done an audio version of the first book in our buddy Ed Robertson’s Breakers series.
Podium decided to hit the harder of the two books first, Yesterday’s Gone: Season One.
And we LOVE how it turned out!
They’ve got several voice actors playing the various roles of our characters. Great voice actors, too!
Hearing the guy who does Boricio Wolfe is worth the price of admission alone!
Seriously, I wonder if the voice actor realizes what he’s in for come Season Two? Does he REALIZE how bad Boricio gets? Shit, if Sean and I knew a professional actor would someday be reading these lines, we might have made them a bit more serious!
Nah, who are we kidding? Boricio is Boricio Fucking Wolfe!
Anyway, since Podium invested a metric shit ton of money into this production (and it shows!), and have exclusive audio rights, we’re taking down the podcast reading for Season One that Sean did.
We’ll leave the final episode up until Jan. 5 for those who didn’t get it, due to my failing to upload it when I should have. See, aren’t you glad professionals are now in charge of the audio?
Here’s Episode 17:

But if you want to hear a REAL PRODUCTION of Yesterday’s Gone, the way it was meant (until we get a movie or TV deal, anyway), do yourselves a favor and go grab it at Audible today for nearly 16 hours of post-apocalyptic fun!
If you’re new to Audible, feel free to sign up for a free 30-day trial, and you can choose Yesterday’s Gone: Season One as your free book!
If you bought the audible version, we’d love to hear what you think! Leave a review.
I’m not sure of the details, but I know Podium is working on WhiteSpace: Season One, and will be following up with all the seasons we’ve written so far for both series, so we’re very excited to be able to offer these to audio fans!
