The Flores Girl Novel is Available as a Free Podcast from Podiobooks.com

She is pretty, intelligent and very sensitive. He is a handsome alcoholic, woman chaser with a tattered career. Together, Sarah and Richard, must deal with the discovery of a new human species while contending with the onslaught of corporate raiders, Indonesian pirates and religious zealots. You know this is going to be a big romance, that is, if they don't kill each other first!

Their recent discovery of a living prehistoric human ancestor, Homo floresiensis on an isolated tropical island brought Sarah and Richard together. These small hobbit-like creatures are not the hobbits of JRR Tolkien's stories but a small tribe of prehistoric people living in seeming isolation for nearly a half million years on the Indonesian island of Irmã Flores. In their unrelenting quest for knowledge, Sarah and Richard unintentionally expose these innocents to the onslaught of the modern world. Moreover, while struggling with the ramifications of their find, Sarah and Richard find themselves strongly attracted to each other but they have to reconcile their own, very different personalities. In the process of discovery and befriending these ancient people, Sarah and Richard rediscover their own humanity and the opportunity to find true love.

The good folks at Podiobooks.com are hosting the Flores Girl Podcast and the even better news is that you can download the entire podcast of the novel for free. The podcast is narrated by the author and contains an original sound score and sound effects.

So many of you are shaking your heads and are saying what is a Podcast? Well, do you own an iPod or MP3 player? Podcast is derived from the words iPod and broadcasting. Typically a podcast is a narration by the author of the novel (or a hired gun) created in a MP3 format for playback on iPods, MP3 players and almost all computers or CD players manufactured during the past 5 years. It could be a novel, news commentary or comedy show, whatever. In its simplest form, it’s some bozo with a microphone and a computer. You download the file and play it back later at your own discretion. Typically with a novel you record the book chapter by chapter and release in a serialized format every week. You use a piece of software called an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeder to track the new releases for you automatically. This is a new medium and was embraced early on by such noted authors as Stephen King.

Here’s how to listen and you get to learn about Podcasting and RSS feeds as well:

1. Go to http://www.podioooks.com. The direct link to the Flores Girl podcast at Podiobooks is: http://www.podiobooks.com/podiobooks/book.php?ID=74.

2. Signup and login to create an account. It costs nothing and then confirm your free subscription.

3. This is the tricky part. To download the actual MP3 file you need an RSS feeder. If you own an iPod you may have for example iTunes already installed on your computer. If not download a copy of Juice from the icon on the page.

4. RSS FeedClick on the RSS symbol (says RSS 2.0 feed when you pass over it) and click ok to save the url link. Open your installed RSS feeder and paste the link to in the new subscriptions area. It will begin to download the MP3. You can play the file typically by right clicking it or by playing it directly from the directory you downloaded it to. When you open that RSS feeder it will automatically check and download new episodes from Flores Girl. From there you can play it back on your computer, or transfer it to your MP3 player for later playback. You know when you are exercising, walking or really trying hard to fall asleep!

If you are still using a dial up modem for the Internet keep in mind these files are up to 20 megabytes in size so feel free to go out and raise a small family before the download is complete.

If you have a problem either get a teenager to help you out or email me and I’ll help you out. You can reach me at: ebertel@floresgirl.com

And again your cost for this great listen: nothing! There are other great books on the site as well but no cheating and go straight for Flores Girl!!
