Another on our list of projects is the audio version of Beyond All Price
published in 2010. This biographical novel is based on the life of
Nellie M. Chase, who served with the Roundhead Regiment as their matron
and nurse during 1862. Readers met Nellie for the first time in A Scratch with the Rebels.
Nellie gets to tell her own story -- how she came to the Roundheads,
and what happened to her after the Battle of Secessionville.
audio version will be produced by ACX, the audio branch of Amazon, and
will be available through several channels: Amazon, Audible.com, and
Apple iTunes. We are currently in production. The book's narrator and
producer, Adrianne Price, expects to have finished recording by the end of April, so we hope to have the audio book available sometime in early June.
Also during the month of June, we will begin conducting auditions for the production of the audio version of The Road to Frogmore.
Katzenhaus Books published The Road to Frogmore in 2012 to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the founding of Penn School on St. Helena Island. Like its predecessors, it is a true story, dealing with the lives of a group of missionaries and abolitionists with sometimes differing motives.
The audio version of Frogmore should be ready sometime in September. This will be an ambitious production, perhaps requiring two narrators
-- one voice for the story of Laura Towne, Philadelphia abolitionist
who arrives in South Carolina to bring education to the newly-freed
slaves, and another voice for Rina, the slave woman who acts as a
commentator on the goings-on of the missionaries who have come to impose
their own value systems on the former slaves.
