About this project

This is a unique opportunity to play an active part in the production of the new audio book edition of the legal thriller, Chequered Justice (ISBN: 978-0-9569104-9-3), by John Bartlett, voiced by Leslie Phillips CBE.

Above is the finished Prologue edit of the Chequered Justice audio book.

Chequered Justice was first published in hardback in 2010.  It sold out within 4 weeks of publication and was subsequently produced in paperback and eBook format, where it became a Number 1 Best Seller.  

Risks and challenges

The good news is that all audio recordings of the book, voiced by Leslie Phillips CBE (with the exception of any retakes required after the editing process), are already in the can and at present the project is running on schedule. You're not financing the beginning of this project, but its culmination. All raw audio is currently being professionally sound edited and processed and we are not expecting any production delays. The actual manufacture, mastering and packaging of the finished boxed CD sets (expected to amount to amount to 14 CDs, around 14 hours of audio), will take place in China once sound editing has been completed - it is not anticipated that any delays will occur in this project, but worst case scenario envisaged could be something such as a slight delay in the publication date set, due to circumstances beyond our control, i.e shipping delays.
