Some are novels, some are just standalone versions of short stories. We know the Audible credit format isn’t really suitable for short story audio, but it’s their problem, not ours.
Here’s a new release for you. It took a while to get done, but now it’s here.
The Mean Gods series focuses on the 7 Deadly Sins. These are the seven divine meanies that will crash into Horace’s life and upend it completely, pushing him along the way into evil thoughts and deeds.
If you liked the hit Netflix series “The Good Place” but thought it could use a bit more sauce, then this is the book series for you.

Audible made a nice gesture for the people in Houston, namely removing all cost for 3 months for the afflicted areas.
My colleagues at Audible, ACX, and I watched the terrible news about Hurricane Harvey with the same sense of “What can we do to help?” that so many others had. We’ve noted publishers making books available to schools, libraries and shelters in the area and applaud their efforts.
We wanted you to know that we’ve contacted the tens of thousands of Audible members in the greater Houston area to let them know their memberships are on Audible for the next three months and that they won’t be billed during this time. Our hope is that this makes life a little bit easier for our customers who are impacted by Harvey.
We did something similar after Hurricane Katrina and try to extend the same spirit of “do the right thing” in working with school kids in Newark (more on that soon). We won’t be billing our Houston-area members for their audio over the next three months. We’ve already gotten a few notes from members in Houston who are grateful for our offer. Let’s hope that listening to some high quality audio may brighten a bleak situation for some people.
Sincerely, Beth Beth Anderson EVP & Publisher Audible, Inc.
So, hoping it all gets better. Head over to our Audiobooks page and pick something if you’re in Houston.
No, wait! Half our stories are disaster/tragedy plots. Why would somebody want to read them in that situation?
Abort. Do not go there.
