1218 Hi Ance. Welcome to the group. I know that feeling well... what to read once you've read something you were blown away by! It's a very familiar feeling!
1218 I love the insight into some of the characters and experiences you've worked into the story, Lance.


How did you land on the voices for each of the characters? How many different voices did you create just for Grundish and Askew before ending up with the ones we heard on the audio?
1218 Lance, who was your favorite character to write?
1218 I agree with Andrew, Brandon's audio recording was awesome. I couldn't get over how fun it was to listen to.
1218 Hey everyone! Tomorrow marks the kickoff of our discussion with Lance Carbuncle, the author, and Brandon, the narrator.

I cannot wait to hear what you guys thought of the book. It's so much different than our usual fare, and I know there's going to be a lot of mixed feelings about, which should make for a great discussion.

Lance, I want to welcome you to the group and thank you for making copies of the book in audio and digital form available for us!

And Brandon, thanks for joining us!

So guys, how did the two of you hook up for the audio?

1218 Rusty, this is not the way to introduce yourself. This is a rather spammy post. And you must have thought that placing it here wasn't enough because you also created a self promotional thread with the exact same comment. I've deleted that one and am going to ask that you follow group guidelines going forward if you wish to remain a member.

1218 Hi Shelly, that's not really the point of this thread. We're not doing a reading challenge on The Beatles. We're just using their songs as fodder for book titles and storylines to challenge our reading.

1218 Hi Mike, I think you meant for this to go into the newbies folder so I've moved it there for ya. Welcome to the group!
1218 Hey everyone! We are officially less than a week away from the discussion kickoff with Lance and Brandon. Have you guys read (or listened) yet?

1218 Hi Ash, no worries. We welcome you, either way :)

1218 Hmmm..

I would recommend everyone read Above All Men by Eric Shonkwiler. That was my favorite book from 2014.
