The Long Distance Collaboration that Led to Audible Vacuum County

Those of you have been following this blog may remember that earlier in the year, I was very preoccupied with the death of the poet F.L. Light. 

I wrote about Light, my expanding view of him over time, and how I found out about his death. Then I wrote about what had happened to his works online after his death.

Shortly after that, I started to talk about Kelly Clear and my collaboration with him over an Audible Edition of Vacuum County.

For anyone who might be interested in how these events are connected, and how I found such a great voice artist and musician to help me with this work, here is a video that explains everything. For me, it was serendipity, pure and simple.

If you would like to read Kelly Clear's review of Vacuum County, here it is. It's there with all the others. Right below it is the review by F L Light, entitled "Aggressive Hospitality."

  1. I am excited to hear about how the collaboration between you and Kelly Clear went with the audible version of Vacuum County. I shared the bilingual version of In Case There's A Fox with my mom, and she liked the story.

    1. Thanks, Julia. I am grateful for this opportunity to work with Kelly to bring Audible Vacuum County to light. So glad your mom liked In Case There's a Fox! Thanks also for promoting the shirts. I am excited about the Vacuum County Trivia contest you are running.

      I hope you are having a nice Thanksgiving break with your family.
