We had a great time this past weekend over here at Djinn Tamer central. It’s always a rush when you’re launching a new book, and this was no exception for us. To see the reactions to the book come in has been immensely gratifying, especially for someone whose stories have never managed to reach a wide audience in the past.
Similarly, it’s also fun to hear your work read aloud. Of course, it’s great to read your own work aloud during the editing process (if you can spare the time), but you don’t always get the opportunity to have someone actually voice out the characters on the spot.
We had the chance to hear that last night during last night’s Soundbooth Theater Live!, a show where voice actor Jeff Hays reads through chapters of stories. In this latest episode, Hays read Chapter 11 of Djinn Tamer: Starter, which sees Jackson trying a bit too hard to train Lyote in hopes of becoming the next big tamer.
Our reading starts around 35:30 into the video.
Big thanks to Soundbooth Theater Live! It was wonderful to hear the chapter read aloud, and it looks like Hays had a good time with it.

And, of course, if you haven’t picked up Djinn Tamer: Starter yet…what are you waiting for? PICK IT UP HERE!
Congratulations. You have taken your first step into the world of Djinn Tamer.
You may be asking yourself, “Where in the world am I, and what are Djinn?” Well, Djinn are monsters used for various purposes in the world of our new monster-battling GameLit series Djinn Tamer. Specifically, for our lead character, Jackson Hunt, they are used to fight in the Djinn Battle League, an organization where tamers come together to compete against one another.
If you’re a Pokemon fan, chances are you understand completely what I’m talking about — it’s very clear that my co-author Derek Alan Siddoway were heavily influenced by Pokemon. But among our other various influences are other monster-battling stories like Digimon: Digital Monsters, and other light JRPG elements thrown in. And if you don’t understand what I mean by all that, and it feels complicated, don’t worry. While we think LitRPG fans will find the series fun, it’s also meant to be accessible to those interested in the premise but unfamiliar with the genre.
But enough talk from me for now. I can run my mouth all day, but it won’t do as good a job as the actual book will — which is currently available on Kindle for 99 cents! That’s right! 99 cents for 300+ pages of monster-battling action. But it’s only for a limited time, so be sure to grab your copy today!
