We've Gone to Bandcamp

We've gone to bandcamp. Really.

Bandcamp is an online site, for musicians mainly, a sort of sales platform and social network rolled into one. Artists can sell their music, set the prices, talk to fans, follow other artists, and so on. The website is good, and the mobile app is even better. They have a nice product for musicians, and have managed to sell a good number of albums over the years.

They've recently expanded into audiobooks, and the publisher of our audiobook, Gildan, suggested that we put the book on there for sale. I met the team running the site when we were out in San Francisco (they were literally a few blocks north of 20Mission, on the top floor of the US Bank building in Mission District, I think it was the 13th or 14th, in this big open office space with giant plate-glass windows and a phenomenal view of the city. I can't believe I didn't take a single picture.)

Not sure that I actually had much choice in the matter, but I was impressed by the site, and what they were building, and agreed that we should put the book up there. So we did. The player above provides an excerpt from the audiobook, narrated by Sean Pratt, and will take you to our page on Bandcamp.

Give it a shot!
