Audio version of Robin Hood and the Caliph’s Gold
I didn’t think it was going to happen. I looked into it and it seems too expensive, too difficult to organise and then . . . a miracle. A company called Isis Audio (obviously not THAT Isis) called and asked if I would licence them to produce an audio version of Robin Hood and the Caliph’s Gold! Hooray!
I’ve signed a contract with Isis, the audio book should be available on 1st November, and we have booked the brilliant Mike Rogers, who did many of my other Robin Hood books, to do the voice-work!
I don’t really listen to audio books myself, I don’t know why – the one’s I’ve listened to have been brilliant. Maybe it’s just lack of initiative. But Isis tell me that the audio version of The Caliph’s Gold will be available in libraries, in physical editions via their website and Amazon, and as downloads from Audible, Storytel, Bookbeat, Apple, Google and a variety of other platforms.
So that’s good news. I have more good stuff to tell you but I cannot reveal it just yet as I haven’t actually signed the appropriate contracts, and I’m a bit superstitious about this sort of thing. Don’t want to jinx it. But brace yourselves for some over-the-top exuberance from me in coming weeks.
In the meantime, I have given Robin Hood and the Caliph’s Gold another edit – there were some errors and typos that readers picked up, which I have now fixed – and I have republished via Amazon it at much lower price.
The eBook of The Caliph’s Gold is now only £2.99 and the paperback is only £7.97 and you can get both from Amazon by clicking here.
This is great news! Especially since last time I asked if this would be on audiobook you said it probably wouldn’t happen. I’ve already read the book, but I’ll definitely be buying the audiobook too to go along with the resf of them. I have all the Robin Hood books on audio. I know you’re working on a new Robin Hood book, do you think that has a chance to be made in audio format now as well?
Hi Brian, I’m very glad you saw this! I don’t know if “Robin Hood and the Castle of Bones” (the next one, out late September, I hope) will be made into an audio book – but the chances of that happening are now much greater. It will depend if Isis (the audio company) make any money on the Caliph’s Gold – or not. But I do hope so! Best wishes, Angus
Excellent news. I have bought and read Caliph’s Gold and have all the other Robin Hood books in audio format. Mike Rogers is a brilliant narrator so fingers crossed he can do it.
