I know, I only just announced the arrival of Dark Capital, but an hour or so after sharing that news, I found out that another of my new audiobook offerings is now available on Audible, so I thought I would just share the news of my most recent audiobooks this way: whether you’re interested in a dark ghostly tale of 1820s Edinburgh (Dark Capital), a collection of supernatural Scottish tales (More Strange Scotland), a medieval story of political intrigue set in Scotland (Crown of Dust), or a horror story about what happens when you deprive someone of sleep for too long (The Sleep Experiment, which is not set in Scotland, just to show that I do not only narrate in Scots). And I do still have a few codes for anyone interested in a free Audible download.

New Audiobook: Dark Capital
Very happy to share with you my newest audiobook performance: Dark Capital by Helen Susan Swift. This is the third in a series of supernatural tales from Helen, this one set in 1820s Edinburgh and moving between the Old and New towns, as Dr. Martin Elliot struggles with his own will–and his sanity–when an old staff he finds in his new home in the capital of Scotland seems to imbue him with supernatural powers … and a lust for cruelty.
I had a lot of fun narrating this tale, set in a city I dearly love, full of dark wynds and hidden closes and phantoms from a murky and sinister past. I hope you’ll give it a listen. Available at Audible at https://www.audible.com/pd/B092MXN9NP
And if you’d like, here is a brief sample to listen to:
#Audiobook alert! The Sentinel’s Alliance is here in #audio #audible — Suzanne Rogerson Fantasy Author
Happy weekend. I have the best news to share – the final book in my Silent Sea Chronicles Trilogy is out now! You can see all my audiobooks on Audible US author page and Audible UK author page It’s so exciting to see the whole series out in audiobook and I have to thank the […]#Audiobook alert! The Sentinel’s Alliance is here in #audio #audible — Suzanne Rogerson Fantasy Author
Today I completed production on my audiobook for Dark Capital by Helen Susan Swift, and I have to say, this was a real pleasure to record. I feel I have been very fortunate in my audiobook productions, being hired to perform novels that I really love from Laya V Smith, Suzanne Rogerson, Zach Abrams, and Malcolm Archibald, among others. I first encountered Helen Susan Swift when I listened to the audiobook for her The Malvern Mystery, which was a lot of fun to listen to, so well narrated by Melanie Crawley. I had no idea at the time of listening to that fine mystery that I would get a chance to perform Swift’s Dark Capital, set in 1820s Edinburgh and inspired by the legends of the twisted warlock Thomas Weir. It was the perfect blend of mystery, supernatural, dramatic, and sinister. I loved it! I hope you’ll give it a listen when it comes available on Audible (probably in a month or so). In the meantime, here is a SAMPLE you can listen to to whet the appetite.
The Sentinel’s Reign
I just wanted to share with you all that my newest audiobook has been released on Audible: THE SENTINEL’S REIGN, Book 2 in the wonderful series SILENT SEA CHRONICLES, written by the talented Suzanne Rogerson. I hope you’ll give it a listen. In fact, we have codes for a free download for those who are interested in listening and reviewing our audiobooks. Just let me know. Cheers.
I do still have free download codes for a number of my other audiobooks if anyone is interested. In between writing poetry and teaching English, narrating audiobooks is how I find a chance to express myself. And to perform, and for a man who was always too shy to step out onto a stage, narrating audiobooks is ideal. Just search for “George Ellington” on Audible. I am always happy to share:
A Measure of Trouble
Just in time for the holidays, my latest audiobook is now available on Audible: A Measure of Trouble, Book 2 in the Alex Warren murder mysteries set in Glasgow, Scotland. I hope you’ll give it a listen, and yes, I do have promotional codes for a free download for anyone who wants one. Just let me know. Happy listening!
Offender of the Faith
I am very happy to share with you all the release of my latest audio book production–Offender of the Faith by Zach Abrams. This was a real pleasure to record, and a challenge, trying to produce enough distinctive voices reflecting a variety of Scottish accents for the different characters in Zach’s latest book–the fourth book in the series of police procedurals in which I narrate murder investigations led by Detective Chief Inspector Alex Warren. This tale of murder among strained family relations and multiracial conflicts is set in Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland and home to a great variety of ethnic groups and disparate accents. In other words, for me as narrator–a challenging but grand story to produce!
As with my previous audio book–Strange Tales of Scotland–I do have a good number of codes you can use for free downloads of Offender of the Faith through Audible.com and Amazon.com. I am more than happy to share those codes with anyone who would like to listen to this novel. And I do still have some codes for free downloads of Strange Tales of Scotland as well. Just send me a message, and as always, happy listening to all!
Oh, forgot to mention, the rights holders have contracted with me to produce the second and third books in this series of Alex Warren murder mysteries, so if you like this one, I have more audio books coming for you to enjoy. And I hope you’ll let me know what you think; I appreciate the feedback.
Strange Tales of Scotland
I am very happy to share with you the release of my latest audio book, a production of Jack Strange’s Strange Tales of Scotland. This was so much fun for me to record, revisiting many of the most entertaining and fantastic tales of Scottish culture, tales of ghosts in castles, and of fin folk and monsters in lochs, and of body snatchers and even cannibals. You’ll probably recognize a few of the names you encounter in this book. It is one of a series of books about strange events in Scotland, England, and Wales written by Edinburgh’s own Malcolm Archibald under the pen name Jack Strange. I hope you’ll give it a listen. And let me know what you think. If you’d like to save a bit of money on this audio book, contact me. I have codes to allow the first 100 listeners to download this audio book for free in the United States or the United Kingdom from one of the following:

Audiobook: Istanbul: Turkish Travel Phrases for English Speakers.
25 June 2019
I am pleased to announce the release on Audible of my first Audiobook. It was a pleasure to return to Turkish–a language I have not had much of a call to use for sometime now–to assist Sarah Retter in the production of Istanbul: Turkish Travel Phrases for English Speakers. The Best 1.000 Phrases to Get Around when Traveling in Istanbul. This is a very useful travel book for English speakers visiting anywhere in Turkey, not just Istanbul, phrases to use while shopping, going out, renting a car, doing business, and so on. It is available on Audible here. Happy travels, all. İyi yolculuklar.
