Narrators Cast for DEVOURER OF SOULS Audiobook

So I received the official casting news the other day for the audiobook version of Devourer of Souls, which is currently in production at Audible.com. Needless to say I'm very excited. This development came about as a compete surprise a few months ago, and it has turned out to be a big milestone in my career, indeed.  

Also - I'm blown away with how much detail they're putting into this. Devourer is comprised of two novellas connected by a wrap-around narrative featuring Sheriff Chris Baker and Father Ward, characters from the narrative frame of my first short story collection, Things Slip Through. To mirror that structure, three different narrators have been cast, giving all three bits of narrative three distinct voices. As I've said, I'm beyond excited for this.

Check it out, below, the narrators for Devourer of Souls:
