Video-book format and audiobook format of The Host in the Attic are released

Following on from last year’s filming of The Beasts of Electra Drive’s video-book format in a sponge-insulated recording studio, I recently returned to the spongy-walled lifestyle in order to film The Host in the Attic’s video-book. Like that earlier novel-length recording, this new novella-length one has also created an audiobook format, which has been popping up at the retailers like a little Venus flytrap, as listed here: www.rohanquine.com/buy/the-host-in-the-attic-novella-audiobook The video-book …
