Cannabis has moved into the mainstream media and audio books are no exception. WHEN MARIJUANA AND REALITY TV COLLIDE Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book by Adele Park dares to go where no other audio book has gone: to the heart of polygamist country!
Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book is a satire about a marijuana enthusiast named Blue McKenna who uses reality TV as a way to cure an apocalyptic case of writer’s block. A conglomerate of kooky contestants invades the polygamist community of Navel, Utah, to compete in a reality show called Yikes! Participants include Steven Finch, a loveable stoner who develops a conspiracy theory involving a rock band called the Rectal Surgeons, Randall Smoot, a member of the Gay Mafia, and Stillman Walker, a Native American mannequin who is just twitching to tell his story.
In addition to addressing sticky subjects like marijuana and polygamy, Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book tackles some serious issues such as Gay Rights, bullying and discrimination.
Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book represents the new wave in audio books. Traditional audio books usually offer one or two narrators who voice all the characters in the story. In Yikes!, each of the 11 characters is played by a different actor who advances the plot in funny, engaging narratives. Yikes! also breaks the conventional audio book mold by including a few sound effects as well as three short, professionally produced raps/songs. Yikes! is 10.5 hours long and offered for sale on Amazon.com and Audible.com in MP3 format www.yikesaudiobook.com
Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book is the second installment in the Quirky Audio Book Series. WHEN RADIO AND POLYGAMY COLLIDE. . . Jitters-A Quirky Little Audio Book won a 2011 Audie Award from the Audio Publishers Association for multi-voiced performance. Jitters was also honored with a spot on Jimmy Fallon’s Do Not Read List! www.jittersaudiobook.com
