Sneak Peek of our Upcoming Audio Drama
Our latest Free Bundle Originals production, “Through The Gates of Madness,” was a complete success. With more than 7,000 reproductions since its initial launch, it sits right at the top of our Audio Drama lineup, and we couldn’t but raise the stakes for our upcoming production titled “The Last Hope”

One of the most tasking aspects of recording an audio drama is finding a quality sound library that can help the audience become more immersed in the story.
With this in mind, we have acquired a new microphone: a Zoom H6 handheld recorder, one of the best performing microphones on the market. We began field-testing it merely a few days ago with surprising results that will make our next Free Bundle Originals production a delight to listen to.
Here’s a sample of the kind of sounds effects we were able to record during our tests.

You can change pages by tapping the right edge of each page.
A Book Ranking For Everyone
This week we launched Free Bundle Charts, the first-ever “Most Read Books of the Week,” with author John Wiswell (Nebula, Locus, and Stabby finalist) as the first guest author curator for the list. He selected Space Unicorn Blues by TJ Berry as his top book for the first week of April.
Meanwhile, “The Joker War Saga,” by James Tynion, stays at the top of our list of Most Read Comic Books since the last week of March. 
On the second spot, after moving up two positions over the weekend, we have the ever terrifying Japanese Mangaka Juji Ito and his “Smashed: Junji Ito Story Collection,”
Remember that by using the hashtag #FreeBundleCharts, you can also cast your vote for any book or comic book for next week’s chart. Our Happy Librarian Robot will pick up your choice and add it to the queue list automatically. If enough votes are cast, it will show in next week’s list!
Learn more about Free Bundle Charts.
That’s all for this week. If you enjoy our work, please take a moment to share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues.
Your pal,
