Last Word Audio
The first books produced by Last Word Audio were Masters of Deception: The Gang That Ruled Cyberspace and Pest Control by Bill Fitzhugh. I had found two books, one fiction one non-fiction that truly moved me.
I read Masters of Deception when it came out in hardback and immediately saw the main characters as peers, all of them graduated high school around the year I did. At the same time I remember being immersed in early computing, games, writing simple programs, even finding a chat board. I tucked the book on my shelf among my favorites and when I decided to make my first audio book, I knew that had to be it.
Pest Control was a wonderful discovery. A friend of mine put the book in my hand and said, “This is your book. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that is MORE you!” and he was absolutely correct. Pest Control referenced music like crazy and rewarded the careful reader. At the same time, the action was hilarious and I couldn’t remember laughing so hard since The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Onto the Precious Shelf it went and, no, my friend never got his book back!
As Last Word Audio continues to grow it becomes possible to do more books each year. The type of books that we like to focus on are what I call Geek Lit or Nerd Lit.
These include: fiction and non-fiction books on the subjects of: comic books, science fiction and fantasy literature, role-playing and computer games and similar topics.
If your books fall into those categories, we may be a good fit for you.
Please keep in mind where and how we are publishing: mostly in digital download format on Audible and iTunes. We currently don’t have a MP3/CD publisher, but it we are looking into it.
Also, as a small publisher we can only take on so many projects in a given year, so it may be a bit of a wait to get your audiobook published.
