More Tell Me a Secret news!


The serialised audiobook chapters 1 and 2 are now out! I listened to them last night, and it is amazing! I'm looking forward to reading the rest. If you want to know how many chapters there are, there are *checks* 45 chapters, so if they continue releasing 2-3 chapters every week, then we're looking at 4-5 months~ HOWEVER, you can purchase the whole lot of it and read it RIGHT NOW. I wish I could...
