THE DIAMOND OF JERU by Louis L’Amour is now on sale, and I wanted to pass along some videos that show the behind-the-scenes process for this unique audiobook recording:
Creating the audiobook (below)
THE DIAMOND OF JERU is a full cast audio dramatization of a gritty adventure tale set in the jungles of Borneo during the 1950s. The story (about an American expat hired for a dangerous expedition to track down a rare gem) was discovered after 40 years in storage following L’Amour’s death, and the completed audio project has been a nearly 10-year labor of love for producer Beau L’Amour (Louis’s son). Hundreds of hours were spent collecting and recording authentic sound effects, and with original music and a 21-person cast, the result is a cinematic listening experience.

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).
