I only have a few chapters left to record of The Hunchback of Notre Dame I have one of my proofers going through it now, and I hope to have it available soon. Be sure to keep your subscription current, as I’ll be sending the entire audiobook to all current supporters. This was quite a feat, and I’m excited to see it coming to successful close.

Again! We’ve been nominated for a SOVAS award! Best Podcast of 2019 , along with TWO nominations in the thriller audiobook category– can you believe it? The awards gala is on November 17th. Hopefully the stars will align so I can walk the red carpet. Previous winners in other categories include Lily Tomlin, James Earl Jones, Scott Brick, and Sigourney Weaver. It’s a pretty prestigious award, and I’m very excited.

If you’re dying for some horror stories during Halloween season, App users can discover a scary story in the special features during the month of October. This week, we feature The Squaw, by Bram Stoker. Marcus Aurelius will continue in November.

I discovered a connection between my son Basil, Bambi, and Frankenstein! Okay, so the third Frankenstein film, Son of Frankenstein (1939), starred Basil Rathbone as Wolf von Frankenstein, and Donnie Dunagan as his son, Peter von Frankenstein. This is where it gets crazy – little Donnie Dunagan is the voice of young Bambi in the Disney film, and I named my son after Basil Rathbone. Son of Frankenstein is also the last time Boris Karloff would play the monster. Yeah, I think if you look hard enough, you find connections kind of anywhere.

And now, Bambi, part 3 of 4, by Felix Salten.
