In October, Jill and I spent two days with our audio publisher, Brilliance Audio, in Grand Haven, Michigan.

Brilliance vice president and associate publisher, Eileen Hutton, took us on a tour of their vast headquarters where we saw firsthand how they create, package and ship audio books in their many formats. We especially enjoyed meeting the fantastic Brilliance sales team and sharing stories about The Book of Names over lunch.  

Happily, our visit also dovetailed with that of our talented narrator Christopher Graybill, and Jill and I sat in on several taping sessions with director Bill Weiderman and engineer Kris Kessel.

Brilliance is including a bonus CD with our audio book -- an interview Heidi Belk, Brilliance publicity and promotions associate, taped with us about the story behind the book and our method of writing as a team.
