The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be released this weekend. All current supporters - keep an eye on your inboxes for an email from us with a downloadable link. If you haven’t received an email by Tuesday, please reach out to Sometimes the email list can be wonky. I hope you like it!

The next title to be released as a bonus for supporters will be The Ghost Kings, by H. Rider Haggard. It’s one of his most well written, and underappreciated treasures, where he integrates his trademark lost world adventure with supernatural mysticism.

Supporters who donate at the $5/month level with receive two bonus titles/year. Hunchback will count as two, because of its length. Most titles will be around 8-10 hours in length. Supporters who donate at the $10/month level or more will receive three titles.

Well, I’ll be going to the SOVAS awards next week, so we’re releasing one of our favorite titles from the archives this week. We’re going to start a mystery novel next week that will take us to the end of the year, and I didn’t want to split it up. 

The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences has nominated The Classic Tales Podcast as Best Podcast of 2019. Not sure if we’ll win, but the SOVAS awards are a big deal. There aren’t a ton of awards for voice acting, and it will be fun to see some of the heroes who have inspired me over the years. Some of whom I’m actually competing with. The two thrillers I’m nominated for are going up against some A list talent. It’s such an incredible honor to be nominated.

And now, An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, by Louisa May Alcott
