Collectively they’re called the “Horror Story Volumes”, but these are a mix of horror, paranormal thrillers, paranormal mysteries, and classic ghost tales such as were told in Tales from The Crypt and The Twilight Zone. You can read more details about the stories here. This page is for providing direct Audible and iTunes links to the audiobooks. However, more information about my audiobooks is below.
On the Australian Audible pages click the “Audible.com Reviews” to see ratings and great reviews from US listeners.
MORE INFORMATION FROM G.M.HAGUE
I’ve finally made the move to convert all my books into audiobooks.
This is a bit of a strange thing, because for many, many years I always found the idea of reading your own books aloud to an audience a bit of an odd concept. Books are meant to be read, with your imagination doing all the work and the screws and gears inside your head clunking away, creating a fictitious world, unique characters and having no boundaries, all without any outside influence.
Listening to an author read their book just seemed to defeat the whole purpose of tucking yourself into a comfy chair, or lying in bed, or even settling into the corner of a nice pub somewhere – and letting your imagination do what it does best. So this is a complete turnaround for me. But narrating popular fiction like my novels is different, and a pretty exciting and fun thing to do. Reading my very own books is a tremendous advantage. I know exactly what I was writing or saying, and it translates well into the narration.
But can I narrate a story? Am I a good storyteller? That’s always going to be a subjective opinion. I might be brilliant, but some listeners may decide they just don’t like my voice. In particular, a few US listeners have trouble dealing with my Australian accent – although it’s hardly Paul Hogan chucking “shrimps” on the barbecue. It’s all a matter of personal preferences.
However, I will explain that I choose to narrate my books as a “classic” storyteller – imagine we’re all sitting around a campfire or something. In other words, I don’t act out the different characters’ voices, but I add emphasis and emotion when it’s needed. This is, in fact, how the majority of audiobooks are produced.
At this point six of my Horror Story Volumes are available. The links are above, and you might be redirected to the Audible store for your location. Please note that I have no control over the pricing of these audiobooks – that’s Audible’s call. If you’ve never tried an audiobook before, these Horror Story Volumes are comparatively short (3.5 hours for Death Wish) and thus cheaper than full-length books. Future books will be longer. Also, for those readers unfamiliar with the latest audiobook methods, you’re not looking at two dozen CD’s to lug around anymore – it’s all streaming or downloading MP3 files on your phone, iPad or any other device. Give it a try!
Finally, if you’re still not sure if audiobooks – or at least my audiobooks – are for you, here’s a ten minute sample from “Bedtime Story”.
