The Dr Pepper Prophecies Audio Book is Out!

TDPP_audio-book__2The Dr Pepper Prophecies is now available to listen to!  The audio version, read by voice artist Elán O’Connor, is on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Audible.com, Audible.co.uk and iTunes.  Have a listen to the sample on the page.

If you go through the relevant Amazon page (or Audible in the US), you can get a 30 day free trial on Audible so you can listen to the book for nothing!  You even get to keep it if you cancel after the trial and pay nothing.  (Don’t forget to put a reminder in your calendar to cancel on time).

UK folk who are sure they want to stick with it can go to Audible direct to get the first three months at a discounted price.  Everyone may also be able to get money back on both membership and individual purchases through cashback sites.

(BTW, if TDPP is the first book you borrow when you join Audible (including the free trial), Elán and I get a bonus payment.  Just FYI.)
