A new Stillpoint Digital audiobook came out today!
A Favorite Son, one of two titles that I’ve been producing for author Uvi Poznansky, was released on Audible.com today; it’ll be available on Amazon and on iTunes over the next couple of days.
A Favorite Son is the wonderful re-imagining of the the biblical story of Jacob (Yonkle) and Esau (Esav). Here’s an extract that Uvi posted on her blog:
Are You Jealous?
“Are you jealous?” I tease him. “I can’t believe it!”
To which he roars, “You do nothing, you! You cook, you hide. Coward! Aha, coward you!”
He takes one step forward; I take two back. The arrows slung over his shoulder clink against each other. It is a steely, menacing sound. With one blow of his hand, he smacks down the canvas; and, on the double, the entire tent is flattened into a lopsided mess, collapsing upon itself; its pegs flying clear out, bouncing over and over, over the soft sand.
He gets in my face; we are standing nose to nose. The moment I have dreaded all my life is suddenly upon me, and there is no way to withdraw. I have to face him, which forces me to examine him closely.
This excerpt, in Yankle’s voice, captures the beginning of a dialog between him and his twin brother Esav, who is coming back from a day of hunt utterly famished, and tested to the limit of his wits by the smell of the lentil stew. Here is this snippet in audio:
