Gotta Have It goes audio

My first short story was published in an anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, called Gotta Have It: 69 Stories of Sudden Sex.

Yesterday I had someone "like" my author page on FB. So I went to check out who it was and saw the cover of this anthology. Didn't really look at it, though, as I went trolling through the book to find what story she'd written. And I wondered why she'd suddenly friended me, so long after the event.

Today I looked at the page properly, because she wasn't an author. They made it into an Audio Book and she's the narrator!

These are 69 short stories, of less than 1200 words. And she narrates them all! Goodness me. There are all sorts of stories in there... how did she do that?

So I'm off to listen now.   It's a part of Amazon.

I'll let you know how my story sounds (I sure wouldn't want to read it aloud!)


  1. Wowee, Cate. Make sure you let us know how it goes (and how exciting you've got an audio book now *grin*).

  2. That would be such a thrill!!! Congratulations.

  3. Hi Anita and Lou,
    I just listened to it after signing up, downloading, etc etc. Do you know what I heard? Writing Mistakes. My mistakes... "I felt..." "I thought..." Poorly phrased sentences. *sigh*

    But aside from my writing - she read it incredibly. She has a fairly rich American accent but it's kind of soothing, and she knows how to build up the story so at the peak, she's almost breathless (but not - actually, that's a terrible way to explain it but I don't know if I can explain it any better).

    So, now I have almost 8 hours of erotic audio. Wonder what I'll do with that? LOL
