I’m excited to announce that Black Bones, Red Earth is now an audiobook and will be available to purchase on over forty platforms worldwide over the coming weeks as each comes on line. Turning the novel into an audiobook has been a bit of a marathon with Covid among other obstacles to overcome along the way.
