In my last blog I gushed about how thrilled I was that my narration idol had exceeded my expectations in delivering a consistently entertaining, often exciting audio version of my novel MURDERING LAWYERS (now available for sale on Amazon and Audible!). Since I posted that blog, at least 3 newsworthy things have occurred: 1. I had a small heart attack and major surgery while visiting Disney World with my family (more on that in subsequent blogs); 2. On the morning of my surgery I scored excellent pre-sale tickets to see comedian John Mulaney perform in Westchester County; and 3. I’ve sold many audiobooks and received excellent ratings and reviews.
Now I can supplement that news with the wonderful development that Mr. Brick has generously provided me with a flattering blurb for use with future editions of my novel and in its marketing. Here is what Scott “Golden Voice” (according to Audiofile Magazine) Brick,
Grammy-nominated narrator of “The Firm”, “Absolute Power” and hundreds of other bestsellers, winner of 5 Audie Awards, over 50 Earphone Awards, Publishers Weekly’s Narrator of the Year (2007, 2011)) had to say about MURDERING LAWYERS:
“Larry Fine tells a really engaging story in a fully engaging way, and his background in law makes this story of a young lawyer’s odyssey truly authentic. But if you’re expecting a conventional lawyer’s tale, think again: the unexpected twists and turns in this story will have you on the edge of your seat! As a book fan, it’s always exciting when an author surprises me, and this one did that in spades.”
Obviously Mr. Brick reads a lot of books (and turns down requests to read many more), so his encouraging words have brought me to the edge of Nirvana. Now I just have to get a recording of him saying these nice things in his golden voice, after which I am likely to attain complete enlightenment…
