These Walls Can Talk 3 - Rise of the Machine is LIVE on Audible!
It features this amazing cast: Joe Arden, Andi Arndt, Jason Clarke, Shane East, Tanya Eby, Teddy Hamilton, Erin Mallon, Maxine Mitchell and Emma Wilder with editing/mixing by Tyler Whitlatch of Plunk Productions and Sound Design by Nick Long.
Thanks to everyone who sent such love and positivity our way on release day. It was a sad day in the US, and putting comedy into the world felt a bit conflicting. Hearing from so many of you that you needed an opportunity to laugh and smile and this project helped you do that yesterday meant a lot.
Here's what These Walls Can Talk 3 is about:
Atticus and Neil are the newly crowned "hottest male narration team" for Mmm-Mmm romance, and they're flying high on the praise.
Nothing can get them down.
Until Vera and Cameron usher a mysterious voice onto the scene and shake the foundation of the audiobook industry itself.
In a world where humanity is all we have, can our group of former friends band together to save the future of storytelling?
Or are audiobooks destined to be nothing more than a bunch of beep beep boop?

Here's what people are saying:
"For me, These Walls Can Talk 3 is a ringing endorsement for the investment in human actors. The cast is brilliant." - Christie, Audible Reviewer
"Rise of the Machine is the conclusion of Erin's hilarious series that gives us an almost behind-the-scenes view into the life of an audiobook narrator. ...You will love the banter and the hijinks that ensue. Did we mention there is a RAP BATTLE? There is." - Luv Story Addicts
"Erin Mallon is my girl - my #1 favorite narrator, and certainly one of my favorite authors, but one of the things she does the very best? Writes plays! ...everybody go out and pick up all 3 of these plays and listen nonstop!" - Bella Reads Romance
"From the writing to the performances, the sound effects to the production quality... everything about this audio play makes it a masterpiece!" - Christine's Library
"Beep Boop Brilliant! ...(TWCT3) is simply delicious audio perfection." - Jodi Reads-N-Listens
During this release, it's been especially heartening seeing the cool ways listeners are celebrating the series with their own creations! Melissa of Mel B's Sweets made these adorable cookies - which taste amazing too!
Book Convos on Twitter created this beautiful image using the three covers from the These Walls Can Talk series.
And the wonderful Kelly Allenby of Readers Together went above and beyond by filming this 45-minute retrospective of all three These Walls Can Talk stories on Youtube. Watch HERE.
I am feeling very lucky.
But release week isn't over yet!
I have a WEIRD surprise for you in the form of BONUS CONTENT! If you've listened to These Walls Can Talk 3, you know there is a rap battle moment in Scene Seven.
Well, before we launched into recording that, I needed to give the cast a sense of how the hell that rap should go. So... I sent them a voice memo of me rapping my ass off and leaving it all on the proverbial dance floor. Now, I am humbling myself and letting my newsletter subscribers hear it. Click the button at the bottom of this email that says "Get Your TWCT3 Bonus Material" and hear the magic. Haha.
And... we're cooking up something fun for you tomorrow night!
On Friday night, May 27th at 8pm ET, I'm going live on my Instagram and bringing some awesome listeners onscreen with me to talk about the project in whatever ways they want! I'm excited to hear their experience with this series and answer whatever questions they have about the process of putting it all together. Hope you can join us! Be sure to follow me on Instagram before go-time, and you'll see us when we go live.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back next newsletter to tell you all about another big project I'm putting the finishing touches on for this summer.
