We have reached our goal.  Thanks to everyone who helped!

The audio book has been produced and is in the 'Approval' stage by the publisher and ready 'any day now' (September 2018) and then available at Audible, Amazon and iTunes, from the links soon appearing on the homepage at   https://www.jeffwoodsradio.com/

Each and everyone who sponsored the project, can expect to receive all that comes with, first.

My heart just skipped a beat. That's a good thing this time, as just now (noon Oct 24 2018) I received word:
"Congratulations!
Radio, Records & Rockstars is now on sale at Audible, and it will be available on iTunes and Amazon within the next few days".

So, by Monday October 29th, each and every sponsor (to date) will receive a promo code, and simple instructions to redeem your audiobook via Audible (because they are already up and running with the published audiobook). I will send you and each of the gofundme sponsors, an individual email containing the code, and an audio message too.

Thanks immensely for your support. Sorry for how long this has taken to finally get released.

Love and peace,
Jeff.

I've had a few sponsors reach out in the last week wondering when the audio book is coming. I had hoped not to provide another update unless it was news that it's ready and coming to you right away and to retail for everyone else. The process of approval has been shockingly long and frustrating. While the book has been fully produced and ready for weeks now, the hold up has been tied directly to the approval by the publisher (ACX, who provide Audible, Amazon, and iTunes with the audio book). My engineer is now faced with a third attempt at readying the audio for publication. It has to do with the audio level (loudness). Here follows the just received response, for those who want to know. Basically, we have 6 of the 46 files approved, with the rest remaining too 'quiet'. The difference between 'too quiet' and approved is negligible, however, it has to be taken care of before I can send you the book and before it's available at retail. The approval process takes up to 10 business days each time, so at best we're looking at late the week of Oct 8th. So sorry for the delays. You'll be the first to know once it's finally ready to roll out. Best, Jeff.

Great news!
You have approved the audiobook production of Radio, Records & Rockstars.

What happens now
Your audiobook will pass through both ACX and Audible quality assurance (QA) checks.
Once it passes, we will let you know and begin distributing it on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The whole process usually takes up to 10-14 business days, as long as there are no problems.
If your audiobook does not pass QA for any reason, you and your producer will be contacted right away with instructions for how to remedy this.
Meanwhile, confirm your bank information is up to date so you can start receiving your royalty payments.
We can't wait to hear your audiobook.

The ACX Team

Update. Full Production of the audio boo, that is 15 hrs 28 mins and 50 seconds of audio has been submitted to the audio book publisher who now begin their 'approval process', which hopefully happens more quickly than the 10-14 days they've suggested. Once approved (for things like sound quality) I'll purchase (from the gofund me funds) and send each and everyone one of you a link to claim (download) your copy of Radio, Records & Rockstars. It will come with a personal greeting, and for platinum sponsors, an invitation to provide me with the title of the bonus short story you'd like me to read. Finally, all gold and platinum sponsors will have a dedication at the start of a chapter. Talk soon. Jeff.
