“Full-length audiobooks available to download direct to mobile phones for the first time”

Andy McNab is backing the launch of  GoSpoken, a new service that allows UK customers to preview, purchase and download audiobooks via their mobile phones for the first time.

The bestselling author is a partner of digital content company Spoken Entertainment, which teamed up with the Random House Group to launch the service at the London International Book Fair in London today.

Mobile phone users who have a data plan can now visit www.gospoken.com via their handsets to browse, purchase and download audiobooks without using a credit card, as payment is billed to the users’ mobile phone account or through mobile PayPal.

Fifty Random House Group audiobooks are now available to purchase and download, including six Andy McNab titles. Other authors available on the service include Chris Ryan, John Grisham, Karin Slaughter, Thomas Harris, James Patterson and Sebastian Faulks.

Andy McNab comments:

“I’m a great fan of audiobooks and passionate about bringing them to a wider audience in the UK. The immediacy of the spoken word and added texture of sound effects really transport you to another world through your headphones.

GoSpoken will bring audiobooks into the 21st Century – being able to download them to your mobile, wherever you are, means you will never be bored again.”

It’s a short synopsis on Amazon yet, but it’s something. 

“Days after his car erupts in a ball of flame, Nick Stone narrowly cheats death a second time when a gunman opens fire on him from the back of a motorcycle. Who knows his movements? Who wants him dead, and why? Stone’s only chance of survival is to carry the fight to his attackers – but first he must uncover a trail of clues that leads from his own dark and complex past into the heart of a chilling conspiracy that threatens us all.

Nick Stone’s eleventh adventure is McNab at his explosive best.”

That should be Andy’s next novel.. No synopsis yet, I can only tell it’s obviously not about those in F Troop or it would have had that title 😉 Also can’t tell yet if it’s another Nick Stone, but we’ll keep you posted.

It’s scheduled for coming September, an early one this year.

So happy New Year, may 2008 be filled with a lot of Andy!

We can expect a lot of ‘Crossfire’ related articles now, here’s one that has some news.

Ex-SAS man and action author Andy McNab’s latest book is going to be promoted with a short-code that responds with a link to the first chapter of the book, free to your mobile phone – but unlike previous promotions of this type the chapter is also available in spoken form.

The publisher couldn’t confirm if Andy would be reading the text himself, but it seems likely given the popularity of the readings on his website.

So users might find themselves hooked into McNab’s latest thrillfest, Crossfire, by listening to the man himself reading the first chapter – assuming the cost of the download doesn’t bankrupt them first.

Then there’s The Guardian who explains:

Andy McNab, the former SAS man turned bestselling author, plans to hunt for new readers of his next book via mobile phones.
Posters advertising Crossfire, his latest novel out next month, will invite mobile phone users to request by text the first chapter, to be downloaded in audio or text version to their phones. They can also use the PayPal system to order the print version of the whole book.

McNab’s pursuit of a new readers follows a trial this year when the paperback version of his book Recoil was available to order on mobiles.
