Terry Pratchett Audiobook Advent Calender!!

Postby IsisAudio » Fri Nov 30, 2012 3:10 pm

Hi all

In celebration of this upcoming Christmas malarkey, we at Isis Publishing Ltd are going to have a sort of Terry Pratchett Audiobook Advent Calendar running throughout December, in which we give away, daily, the first two minutes of each of our Terry Pratchett audiobooks (as read by Stephen Briggs et al) for free.

If you're interested, follow us on Twitter - @isisaudio - or on Soundcloud - user 'IsisAudio' - where we'll be tweeting the day's link every morning. Each sample will be available to download for one day only.

First freebie is this Monday with a different one each day of the week until Christmas!!

Enjoy!

Phil and all at Isis Audio

I have the most of them anyway, and two minutes is not much you can get more than that free from Audible.

Sorry to hear you're disappointed 'Who's Wee Dog'. Audible aren't giving the samples away free for download as far as I can see?

First sample of 'A Hat Full Of Sky' is up now via Twitter! Today only.

Also - Jason, thanks for yr PM but I'm not allowed to send you a private email apparently - could you email me at [email address removed] re. review copy and I'll look into it.

Enjoy!

I'm not at all disappointed, as stated I have the majority of the Isis unabridged ones and a few more ear marked for purchased to complete my collection. :mrgreen:

I suppose 2 minutes is better than nothing but I personally wouldn't go through the bother of getting them if it's ONLY 2 minutes.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Don't get them then, we're not forcing you to.

They're just tasters for a bit of fun.

Here's today's, we lost count, so let's call it Window #11 - The Colour Of Magic, as read by Nigel Planer. We'll do a few more Stephen Briggs in the last few days.

What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Honestly, other than being free advertising for Isis audio, I really don't see how any of these are "gifts" of any kind. It's no more of a 'gift' than being able to listen to the first 30 seconds of an MP3 on Amazon.

Mind you, I already own at least 15 DW audiobooks, so Isisaudio has made plenty off me in recent years.

I have about 43 Raisin and the 3 SODW plus good omens and I think it's a bit miserable of them just to give 2 minutes it's not as if you are going to save them, even Audible give you 4 to 5 minutes listening time, at least the first chapter would have been worth while having. :|
