Josh Erikson doesn't have any fancy credentials to tell you about here. He lives in rural Nebraska (US) with his wife and two children, where he mostly reads, writes, and reads about writing. His many awards and accolades include some beautiful photoshopped certificates he printed at home and a yo-yo trick contest he once won at a fun fair in a grocery store parking lot.

His writing style has been compared to greats like Neil Gaiman, Joss Whedon, and Jim Butcher. Of course, that was in his dreams and should consequently be viewed with some degree of skepticism.

Hey, thanks for the questions! And the review, by the way. :)

I mostly decided to do my own narration because it sounded like a ton of fun. And I've spent a good portion of my life studying and performing in Music Theatre, so it seemed like a natural fit to put that experience to work. But listening to Neil Gaiman do his stuff really inspired me. Anything that puts me in the same ballpark as that guy can't be bad, right? (Okay, more like the parking lot of the burger joint next door to the ballpark, but still...)

The sound booth setup was trouble for me at first. I'm more of an "art before science" guy, so I just grabbed some foam and jumped in. That...didn't work. It actually took me four months of research and testing to get the booth and software bugs all worked out. A good friend hooked me up with the right equipment, and THEN I was able to record. I'm looking forward to actually knowing what I'm doing for the second book.

As for that, the next book in the series is in edits now and goes to my editor on 9.15. She'll tell me where I've been painfully stupid, and then I'll polish it all up. I'm hoping to be recording by early November and do a release in all formats by January. Book three is outlined and will start to take shape in a few months. The goal is to release at least two books in the series every year until people start throwing things at me to quit.

Thanks again!!

You didn't miss the release date yet. My original hope was to have the audiobook out by the end of February, but the last few tracks gave me some trouble. (Read: I'm a hopeless perfectionist and had to edit the recording to within an inch of its life.) But it's all been submitted to Audible as of ten days ago, and it's just waiting for them to finish processing. Hopefully just a few more days to go! And even though I've been terrible about keeping people updated, I'll be sure to announce it here, on my website, twitter, facebook, and everywhere else I can think of. :) Thanks for checking and for being awesome!(less)

Blight Marked is out now!

Blight Marked (Ethereal Earth #3) by Josh Erikson
Blight Marked (Ethereal Earth #3) is now out in all formats! Including audiobook!

I honestly didn't expect the audio to come out so quickly, so I'm thoroughly shocked and pleased to be making this announcement.
There are lots of emotions going on right now, but I'll leave that for another time. For today, thank you for sticking with this series, and happy reading/listening!

I finished this audiobook a while ago and knew I HAD to leave a written review at some point. Then I got busy and...didn't. But it kept coming back to me that I should, and I think that's one of the most telling things about the quality of this story ...more
