Okay, here's the lowdown: I ran into some budgetary difficulties in my initial attempt to finance this audiobook. But I really want to see the audiobook happen because I know it means a lot to some people. So I figured, if fans want it so badly, maybe they could pitch in and help out!
So I'm very excited to announce a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the audiobook production! I only need a minimum of $1000 to fully finance everything (the actual production, Kickstarter's fees, and prize fulfillment), and I've put together some fun prizes to reward backers.
If you're interested in audiobooks, inclusive science fiction, giant robots, and/or uplifting stories of hope, redemption, and empowerment, I hope you'll consider donating and spreading the word!
