Parthian is thrilled to announce the release of our first independent audiobooks.
We've been busy in 2021 collaborating with Cast Iron Productions to create our very first Parthian-produced audiobooks.
Our initial titles include memoir, translations and classic Welsh fiction:
The Journey is Home: Notes from a Life on the Edge, written and narrated by John Sam Jones
Death Drives an Audi by Kristian Bang Foss, narrated by Danish actor Lars Kudsen
The Book of Katerina by Auguste Corteau, narrated by The Durrells actress Anna Savva
Ash on a Young Man's Sleeve by Dannie Abse, narrated by actor and comedian Griff Rhys Jones
We also look forward to announcing an exciting list of further audio titles in the coming months which will represent a cross-section of Wales' best classic and contemporary literature - as part of a unique collaboration...
In the mean time, these four titles are now available to buy from all major audiobook suppliers, including Audible. However, if you'd like to support us and our authors, you can buy the titles directly from our website using Glassboxx.
On the product page of each title you will find a button to buy the audiobook edition. This will take you through to our Glassboxx checkout page where you can purchase the book directly from Parthian. Once purchased, all you need to do is download the Glassboxx app on your phone, tablet or desktop and purchased books will appear on your virtual shelf. There will be instructions at checkout, but you can also get more info here: Glassboxx FAQs
The best part is that this way, you all the profits go directly to us and our authors (which is not the case on big-shot sites like Audible!)
It's been an exciting new adventure for us as a small publisher to start creating our own audiobooks - but a worthwhile one we're sure. We're extremely proud of the quality recordings we've already produced, thanks to our fantastic narrators and directors. And we think you'll love them too.
Keep your ears peeled folks - there's even more to come...
