I am very excited to announce that the audio version of Roll the Bones: The History of Gambling is now available. For the second time, I collaborated with Eric Martin, who narrated and produced the audio version.
The audio version has some unique content–an interview where Eric and I talk a little about the writing process for the book and what has happened in the gambling world since the paperback/ebook’s 2013 publication.
You can buy the book through Amazon, Audible, or iTunes. If you have never used Audible, you are in luck. I have a special code that can get you a free 30-day Audible trial, which will let you listen to all 16 hours and 59 minutes of the book for free.
I’d like to thank Eric for all of his hard work on this project–it would not have happened without him.
So if you have 17 hours worth of travel time, downtime, or just plain free time and want to learn more about the history of gambling with an emphasis on casinos, you are in luck.
For all of those who’ve been waiting to get Roll the Bones: Casino Edition on their iDevice in all its iBook glory, today should be a happy day: it’s now available!
With this, the book is now available on all of the digital platforms that I’m aware of. Here’s the complete list of where to get it:
Paperback available from Lulu.com! 20% Early-bird discount!
Kindle Edition available from Amazon.com
Nook Book available from Barnes & Noble
eBook available from Kobo
iBook available from iTunes
The last outlet I need to secure is getting into Ingram, a book distributor, which I’m doing through Lulu’s Global Reach program. Once it hits there, you’ll be able to order print copies on Amazon, bn.com, and other online retailers, and order a copy through your local bookstore. Hopefully at that point I’ll be able to get it into Las Vegas-area outlets like the Gambler’s Book Store and the Mob Museum.
Special thanks go out to the guy from iTunesConnect support who spent 43 minutes on the phone with me last Thursday figuring out where a critical error was coming from. There’s definitely more of a learning curve to getting stuff into iTunes than Kindle or the other platforms, but it’s not that bad.
Just an update for anyone who prefers the Kobo eReader: Roll the Bones: The History of Gambling (Casino Edition) is now available from Kobo:
