Underdogs 1 is now an audiobook! (And Underdogs 2-related updates)
Good news everyone!
Ever since the original Underdogs (its Unbound page being here) was confirmed for publication, people have asked me whether an audiobook version would come out too. (After all, a book like Underdogs in particular needs to be accessible.) Originally I wasn't optimistic: after all, audiobooks cost a surprising amount to produce, and a producer would only pay for it if they believed they'd make even more money back. So audiobooks are generally reserved for the really successful books.
...Less than two months after Underdogs got published, I got an email from a representative at W. F. Howes (Britain's biggest audiobook producer), and now it's been released!! The narrator is Mike Paul, who makes no secret about how much he has loved being involved.
So for those who like their books in audio form, here are a few links on where to get it!

And how's Underdogs: Tooth and Nail (Underdogs 2) going? Well we're partway through the structural edits - my favourite and least favourite part of the editing process. Least favourite because it's so arduous, but favourite because of how much it improves the story. In the meantime, work on Underdogs 3 and 4 continues while I have free time. (Further updates about all of the above happen all the time on Underdogs' Facebook page!)
