Sometimes the best things in life just sort of fall into your lap. That was the case when Creative Content acquired the audio rights for The Clay Lion Series. The best part about this partnership is that I haven't just gained business partners, I've made two amazing friends as well.
Here's the press release from the production company who will be producing all three books in the series:
"Creative Content, the specialist digital publishing company founded in 2008 by Ali Muirden and Lorelei King, has signed a 3-book deal with Amalie Jahn, author of the acclaimed YA "Clay Lion" trilogy, to publish audio editions of the series over the next 3 years.Published in 2013 and voted one of the "50 Best Self-Published Books of 2013" by IndieAuthorland, The Clay Lion was followed by Tin Men, the second time travel book in the Clay Lion series, which was released in July of 2014. The final instalment of the series, A Straw Man, will publish in June 2015.
The Plus Side listed The Clay Lion as One of the Best Kids' Books for Blossoming Bibliophiles. Bustle listed The Clay Lion as one of 13 New Books That'll Make You Feel Like a Kid Again and Tin Men was named One of the 50 Best Indie Books of 2014 by Readfreely.
Lorelei King said: "This project is wonderful example of the power of social media to bring content creators together. I was so please to have struck up a relationship with Amalie on Twitter and to have discovered her moving, inspiring series. I can't wait to get into the studio!"
Amalie Jahn said: "I'm thrilled to have Creative Content producing the series and am excited to share The Clay Lion with audio listeners in the coming months. As seasoned veterans of the industry, I know Ali and Lorelei are a perfect match for my series, and I'm looking forward to working closely with them to produce an amazing product."
The audio edition of "The Clay Lion" read by Lorelei King will be published this summer and will be available from all major online retailers.

This is were you get to read about what's going on inside my head. I apologize in advance - the place is a wreck.
