New Audiobooks! (In Two Series!)

So I'm super-tickled that I've (coincidentally) got two new audiobook releases out. The first is the second D-BOYS book, COUNTER-ASSAULT, performed (and engineered) by the crazily talented Kevin Arthur Harper. Working with him is a joy, and I enjoyed the heck out of reviewing each chapter as he cranked them out. I kept finding myself laughing out loud, which was awkward, so I told myself it was at his delivery, not at my own jokes. This book seems to hold up very well – it's still got a 4.8-star average for reviews on Amazon… on ALL 5- and 4-star reviews – and Kevin's performance just brings it to life in so many amazing ways. (I feel like most of these characters hardly existed until he gave them their voices.)

The other is the second ARISEN prequel (or, arguably, as the new cover has it, standalone). This, like the others in that series, is performed by the God on Olympus of audiobook narrators, RC Bray. I'm incredibly lucky to have him, not least because I'm pretty sure he brings a lot more listeners to the series than I do. (This book also enjoys a 4.8-star average for reviews – but with the more usual smattering of haters and constructive critics.

Update: The Nemesis audiobook has now actually got a 4.93-star average on Audible. Thanks, listeners - and Bob (Bray).

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
