Hilarious Billibub Baddings Podcast Novel Promos And Teasers

SFFaudio Online Audio

{Podcast / Podiobook - Billibub Baddings And The Case Of The Singing Sword by Tee MorrisPromos are a staple of podcasting, the idea behind a promo is that you make a little audio advertisement for your podcast and send it to other podcasters in the hopes they will include it in their podcast. And usually they do. Promos are often exchanged – if you play a promo it is only courteous to play the promo of the podcaster who played yours. Most promos follow a standard formula: Give a taste of what the show is like, give the podcast’s URL give the URL again. In the case of Tee Morris though, there’s a whole new level of fun happening. His recent promos and teasers are more than just advertising, they are entertainment in themselves. Tee gets other podcast novelists to play themselves in little scenarios getting taken out by a mobster voiced by Tee. If the promos and teasers are anything to go by the podcast novel Billibub Baddings And The Case Of The Singing Sword will rule. Check out the fun for yourself:

Billibub Baddings Podcast Novel preparing to Launch

{Podcast / Podiobook - Billibub Baddings And The Case Of The Singing Sword by Tee MorrisThe original podcast novelist is set to STRIKE AGAIN soon!

Tee Morris, co-author of Morevi: The Chronicles Of Rafe and Askana, and the first podcast novelist in the history of this universe is planning on podcasting his 2004 novel Billibub Baddings And The Case Of The Singing Sword. The first teaser |MP3| is out already, and the actual novel should start sometime in the early New Year, likely February. Here’s the hook:

“Chicago, 1929. There are a thousand stories in the naked city; and when you’re a dwarf at four-foot-one, they all look that much taller.” It is The Era of Prohibition, where crime runs rampant in the streets and a city divided into territories serves as the ultimate prize. Somewhere in this Underworld of Chicago, an enchanted weapon holds the key to ending The Gangland Wars. In the wake of The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, only one is man enough to stand up against Al Capone… …a four-foot-one dwarf named Billibub Baddings. “Billi,” as his friends come to know him, is a working stiff dwarf in the all too-human sized world of Chicago. Seems that a brood of orcs and a renegade warlock had opened a Portal of Oblivion in his homeworld and was planning to submerge his nine lands of Acryonis into an Age of Darkness. Billi had managed to throw a monkey wrench into those plans…but not before getting himself caught in the pull of that portal. When he came to, he found himself in the heart of The Windy City during The Roaring Twenties. After dealing with trolls, goblins, and rock dragons, Al Capone and Bugs Moran are about as intimidating as choir boys. Billi sets himself up as a tough-talking, waist-high, straight-dealing detective, and business was looking bleak, until a dark-eyed beauty crossed his threshold with the case that involved the mob, the upper-crust of Chicago society, and Billi’s past. Get ready for The Lord of the Rings written by Mickey Spillane! Poking fun at the hard-boiled detective novel, Fantasy mainstays, and even the legend of Chicago’s 1920 underworld!

Tee’s first novel was abridged, but no word has yet been leaked as to whether this will be an UNABRIDGED or ABRIDGED podiobook. Let’s hope for the former!, though still in BETA, is growing…
