Cory Doctorow #BLM+ Your Authors @doctorow Pre-order the audio- and e-book for ATTACK SURFACE, the third Little Brother book, on my first-ever Kickstarter: tinyurl.com/AttackSurfaceKS Sep. 08, 2020 1 min read + Your Authors

Today on my podcast: a long (3 hour!) excerpt from the new audiobook for Attack Surface, the third Little Brother book, read by @amber_benson:

I independently produced this one in part because I love doing it, but mostly because Audible - the monopolist of the format - won't carry my work as it's DRM-free, which means that publishers aren't interested in paying for the audio rights (Audible is 90% of the market)

So while the book is a major release for @torbooks and @HoZ_Books, the audio is mine alone; I'm getting into all those indie audiobook stores like  http://libro.fm  and  http://downpour.com , but I'm also preselling it through Kickstarter:

The KS launched on Tuesday morning and it's going GREAT, but there's a long way to go still. My hope for this is that I'll sell enough units that it will blow up the way traditional publishers think about working with authors and crowdfunding platforms.

So if you like this, I hope you'll consider backing it!
