ANTHEM is coming: chapter 5

ANTHEM, Book 3 of the Sixties Trilogy, publishes on October 1. Each of the book's 47 chapters begins with a song from the Sixties to set the tone, mood, and scene. Every day between now and October 1, come have a listen and read a snippet from each chapter.

This is Chapter 5 (day 43):

"Come Together"
Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Performed by The Beatles
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, England 1969
Drummer: Ringo Starr

"Norman shoved his hands into the pockets of his khaki slacks. Maybe Mr. Harter would reschedule. Maybe Mr. McCauley would understand. He could work on the drum notation on the road. Biff Burger would not hold his job, but he didn't care about that. He hated that place, and he could get another job when he got back. // 'I want to salvage some of my summer,' he said, finally. // 'You will,' said Molly. 'I promise.'"


Chapter 5, in which the deal is struck. Sort of.

The ANTHEM audiobook is in production right now. We have three performers/readers; one for Molly, one for Norman, and one for the chapters that are narrated, like this one. Our narrator is Blair Brown. So exciting! 

There are other developments to share about the audiobook -- forthcoming!

[NOTE: It looks like the YouTube video with the song embedded here isn't working for some who get the blog in email (me included). Don't know why... if that's the case for you, click through to the blog at the Blogger website to hear the song. If you're subbing to the blog at Wordpress already, this shouldn't be a problem.]

Tomorrow: chapter 6, back to Molly.
