12 Gifts for Writers audiobook

I’ve recorded my 12 Gifts for Writers as an audiobook, in separate chapters and as one big 64-minute binge-listen. It’s available now to everyone who sponsors me on Patreon at the $2-a-month level or higher, even for just one month! I’m making chapter 11 (“Everyone’s a writer”) free for everyone… just as a teaser. Here it is.

I’m audio-recording every one of my blog posts now… but just for subscribers at the $2 per month level.

Over the course of each month, for the cost of a coffee, you get an hour’s worth of listening. Here’s a free sample.

Give it a listen!
