- Perry, Michael. Truck: A Love Story
Very happy to announce that the audiobook versions of Coop and Truck (both read by Mike) are now available from Audible.com.
Also happy to announce that the audiobook version of Coop is available from iTunes. HOWEVER: The version of TRUCK that is on iTunes is NOT narrated by me…this is due to a mixup too labyrinthine to explain and is currently being rectified (nothing nefarious, the voice talent is a great guy, this had to do with miscommunication). When the proper version is posted, we’ll link, you bet.
If you still prefer your audiobooks on CD, hang in there, they’re in the hopper.

One more session. Then it’s on to Coop.
Recording the audiobook of Truck: A Love Story this week. This is the bathroom of the studio where we’re working. Yep, they’re real. And yep, the seat is up.
