So a funny thing happened on the way to a tweet, Greg Tremblay, the fantastic narrator of my Dirty series, texted me and said… hey, you should giveaway a custom ringtone. Or something to that effect. There was some discussion. A few emails and then well, long story short—there may have been some pixilated shots of whiskey and banter but a plan was formed. A plan so cunning I could have stuck a tail on it and called it a weasel.
Mostly, it involved Greg. And your phone. But it was still a plan!
After a furious, intense process of queries, eliminations, debating on who said what, we came up with a set of phrases from Cole, Bobby, Jae, Claudia, Scarlet and one from Maddy then Greg went to work. And returned to me with a brilliant sound bites forged by a narrative master—in the style of the characters’ voices.
So dear reader, as a thank you for everything you’ve done for Greg and me, I’d like to present the entire set of ringtones—twenty one in total—FREE, as a gift to you.
Available in Android (MP3) and iPhone (formats for Android and Apple phones, Greg has also graciously included the WAV files if that’s your thing. Download links to the zipped files are provided below.*
A great humongous thank you to all of the blogs who helped me with this guerilla gifting. This swirled up on Tuesday and Greg just MADE it happen. He is the voice of the series and I am forever grateful for his talent.
Love you all, and really, Thank You.
If you’ve not tried out Greg Tremblay’s narrations, please do so. He makes audiobooks fun and damn, he brings Cole and the others to life.
Greg Tremblay’s body of work can be found here—and yes, the Dirty series is there but so are many other lovely audio books. I highly recommend one of Greg’s audiobooks, a comfy chair, a pair of headphones and a nice hot cup of coffee… or tea… with or without whisky.
* These are copyrighted and available free for individual use. The files included in the zip cannot be sold by third parties nor can they be altered in anyway as to destroy the integrity of the original work. Animals were test subjects for these sound files and while the cat could not have given less of a shit, the dog seemed mighty interested. Please note, neither own nor use a phone or a computer so results may vary.

😉 Technically I said “voicemail message” first… and I’m still down with that as a fun raffle sometime… I would do voicemails in character for … oh… 3 people some time as a prize drawing if you wanted.
See, I did not even catch voice mail *grins* I was all… ooooooh… blurby soundy things. I haz writerly thingies.
… I can’t brain today, I have the writers?
Bah. Reply in wrong place. Apologies.
See? You have the “writers” too. *grins* It’s the inability to do the simplest tasks and chew gum 😀 Or reply on the wrong post or say the wrong thing because I’m not paying attention *laughs*
Ok, so I just finished reading the book – GOD woman, what an ending, you made me cry and laugh at the same time. Darn good writing ! I’ve listened to Greg’s voice and it gave me shivers. You guys are da bomb !!!!
I am so glad you liked it! *HUGS* Awwwww
Love his reading of the series. The voices are amazing.
BUT… some of us are technically challenged but some how are the computer guru’s of the family… no idea how that happened…
So… how do you download the ringtones… HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone’s gonna have to help you there. It’s an in-person thing. Too many variable for me to walk someone through it on the internet. I can suggest you download them to your computer, unzip the file and then move over the ones you want? You can also use them as notification sounds on your computer 😀
How do I hear what I am downloading so I know which to keep?
If you download the MP3 or Wavs, you can hear those in any music player. I think the MP4s are playable too.
Thx for the ringtones. You’re great and funny as hell (refering to the copyright addendum). 🙂 Have a good day.
OMG! LOVE these! While I won’t use the one that I love as a ringtone per se….it makes for a GREAT alarm…as in when I get distracted by funny cat videos on YouTube and forget to get dinner going…sheesh!
Personally I prefer ringtones to voicemail messages, I have more use for those. 😀
Well. Suddenly I kinda want to listen to the audio books. (Err. Now, with Greg here especially, I feel I need to apologize and explain why I wouldn’t otherwise. Long story short – I have a problem with sounds. Neurologically speaking.)
I also really, REALLY wish I owned a phone to put these on. Ooh, I bet I can convince my partner to use some of the Scarlett.
I’m using them for computer sounds *grins*
