What an awesome idea!
You’ve probably heard of John Green’s upcoming book, The Fault In Our Stars. It comes out in January. John loves to read his new books on blogtv and youtube, but no matter how much we all beg and plead, he’s never recorded his own audiobook in his voice.
That changes this January with The Fault In Our Stars Audiobook Box Set. This box set is limited to only 3,000 copies and is available exclusively from DFTBA Records. There will be no digital version of this released anywhere, these 3,000 copies are it.
The box set includes John reading the book (6 CDs), a DVD of videos by John, a Hectic Glow wristband, a Hectic Glow concert ticket, and numerous postcards from locations in the book.
There will be a second audiobook released for The Fault In Our Stars for Audible and Amazon, but that one will be read by a female narrator.
This is DFTBA’s first Box Set, first Audiobook, and a new direction for authors that we’re all really excited about. DFTBA has, for a while, wanted to work more with/for authors with dedicated fan bases, offering products that major publishers couldn’t, or don’t want to (like Maureen Johnson’s magnet sets). This is an awesome first step in that process, and I hope we’ve put together a package the hardcore John Green fans will love.
The Fault In Our Stars Audiobook Box Set is available now for pre-order. Shipping January 10, 2012.
