The Audiobook

Yes! It’s my pleasure to announce that after dozens of hours in a recording studio in Berkeley, CA, and after the hardcover, paperback, and e-book have been out for many months, the final format of Double Happiness is nearly here! I will write more about this in future posts, but to answer your basic questions:

  • Yes, I read the book myself and tell the story for your listening pleasure.
  • Yes, I pronounce the Chinese terms and words for you.
  • Yes, it’s the unabridged whole book.
  • Yes, it’s a wonderfully professional production. A double gratitude to the pros at Live Oak Studio.
  • Yes, it’s availabe on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. 

Update: It’s now published and available on Amazon and should be in iTunes and Audible any minute now as well!

Here it is: The Amazon Page >

January Events!
December will soon turn into January and with it, the book tour will wrap up. I’ve had so many wonderful events and so much fun connecting with you throughout the country, it’s hard to believe the book tour is coming to a close. There are a couple of final events left, and they should be great, so if you are (or will be) in the Bay Area, I will be doing my final reading events in January. Please come and support these wonderful independent bookstores. My only East Bay and San Francisco readings will take place:

Friday, January 9 (EAST BAY) 
7pm : Reading & Signing
Books, Inc. 
1344 Park St, Alameda
Full Event Info > 

Saturday, January 24 (SF) 
4pm : Reading & Signing 
Green Apple Books 
506 Clement St., SF
Full Event Info >

That’s the news from Double Happiness land for now.

Double happy holidays to all,
Tony

Read and Share Double Happiness for Free

Wow, that was fun. Over 2,000 copies of the e-book of Double Happiness flew off the shelves in 48 hours.

My deepest wish has always been to share the story with as many people as possible. May the story be read and shared far and wide.

I’m happy to keep giving it away, but I have heard that sometimes recipients of free books don’t actually read them, so I’m going to try earmarking the free books now for those who will commit to read it. Put simply:

For the rest of this month and the next month, the e-book will be free for those who will commit to reading it. The e-book will be $.99 for everyone else. At the end of September, the e-book will return to its normal price of $4.99.

Two ways to receive the e-book free in September:

  • Pledge to read it and review it. (Check the box for a free e-book).
  • Pledge to read it and share it with your friends via email (write to tony@tonybrasunas.com).

How to receive $5 off the print version:


Thank you. I’m extraordinarily grateful I’ve been able to publish Double Happiness and share it with so many readers.
