Mae Whitman to narrate new audiobook edition of ‘City of Bones’ (available now)

tumblr_n3gaqs9CF01riilx0o1_1280Exciting news, Shadowhunters! Actress Mae Whitman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Parenthood, Arrested Development) will be narrating a new audiobook edition of City of Bones, Simon & Schuster Audio announced.

The City of Bones audiobook is available to download via unabridged digital download beginning today (April 15).

Cassandra Clare shared her thoughts on Whitman, as well as teased that we’ll like the narrators (emphasis on the plural) for City of Heavenly Fire.

As a sort of celebration of City of Heavenly Fire coming out (and the audiobook coming out — I think you guys will love the narrators) Simon&Schuster decided to re-record City of Bones (with the corrections that have been added over the years — Simon having one sister instead of two, for instance!) — with the lovely Mae Whitman as the narrator.

Here’s the press release:

NEW YORK, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Simon & Schuster Audio is proud to announce that actress Mae Whitman will narrate a new edition of CITY OF BONES by bestselling authorCassandra Clare. The audiobook will be available on April 15, 2014 as an unabridged digital download.

Clare is the author of the New York TimesUSA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling Mortal Instruments series and Infernal Devices trilogy. Her books have more than 24 million copies in print worldwide and have been translated into more than thirty-five languages. CITY OF BONES is the first installment in The Mortal Instruments series; the film version debuted in August 2013starring Lily Collins, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jamie Campbell Bower, and Lena Headey.

“Mae is an incredibly gifted actress,” says Clare, “and I can’t wait to hear her bring CITY OF BONES to life.”

In CITY OF BONES life changes drastically for fifteen-year-old Clary Fray when she witnesses a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Soon she is introduced to the world of the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own.

  1. I could have used this when I was trying to get my dyslexic sister into the series. LOL. But it’s too late for that now, as she already finished the original audio book for CoB. Still… it’s awesome that the VA for Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Yuffie Kissaragi (in Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus) will be reading this now. I bet she’ll make listening a lovely experience for people. And who knows? Maybe her name will even bring more people into the series:)

  14. Plumbing Repairs That Require a Professional Plumbing
    Service
    Plumbing repair work can encompass many things, such as mending hot water heaters, or fitting
    new faucets in bathrooms. On the internet, there is information about how to do
    many kinds of plumbing jobs. Understandably, most people want to avoid
    hiring a plumber to carry out maintenance or repair work, which
    they could perform themselves. Nonetheless, considerable precision and expertise is needed to implement the majority of plumbing tasks.

    Even a basic error, like failing to seal a pipe tightly enough, could cause
    leaks that result in expensive water damage and high water bills.
    Leaks could cause mold to develop in your house as
    well. You should hire plumbing services, whenever severe problems with your plumbing system arise.

    If you don’t do this, you might end up making
    the problem even worse.

    The hot Water Stops Working

    It can be difficult to identify the cause of this problem, unless you have a leaking water
    tank. Leaks can appear anywhere in your system, due to a range
    of factors. Issues with gas heaters can involve
    thermocouple ignition systems and burners. Issues with electrical heaters can involve
    heating elements, bad overload switches, malfunctioning thermostats,
    and blown fuses or circuit breakers.

    The Water Pressure in Your Home is too low

    There are several things that can cause this problem. Examples include badly
    designed supply lines, low water pressures from wells or city supplies, and water line blockages (such as debris or rust).
    A reputable plumber will diagnose the cause of the problem, and tackle it effectively.

    The Sewer Line Backs up

    In all likelihood, if you encounter a sewer line stoppage, the line
    will have a plug in it that leads out to the primary sewer.
    Frequently, this is caused by tree roots. Large sewer rodding machines can be rented, however
    they might harm the sewer lines or drain. Contact a drain cleaning
    company or plumber. If they experience problems,
    they will do the repair work.

    Installing a new Water Heater

    Ideally, you should avoid trying to install a new heater on your own. A good plumber will transport the new heater to your storage
    area, connect it and ensure that it functions correctly.
    He or she can get rid of your old heater too.

    Severe Damage to Water Lines

    It is a time consuming process to fix damage to water lines.

    Normally, this occurs due to freezing. Hire a plumber, so that
    you don’t have to interrupt your regular schedule.

    Pipe Freezing

    If you have frozen pipes, they may have cracks in them already —
    in which case you need a plumber. Even if your pipes don’t have cracks in them, hiring a plumber still might be sensible.
    Rather than thawing frozen pipes, some plumbers just replace certain sections
    of them.

    Any kind of plumbing problem can represent a threat to property or health.

    Therefore, these problems need to be addressed straightaway.

    Locate some good plumbing repairs services, and contact them if you encounter any of the above
    situations.

  15. There are many types of tiles available nowadays.
    The method of tile cleaning will depend more
    on the tile type. However there are couple of things to be followed to add the sheen and glow of
    the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water
    too as soon as they are split to prevent the stains.

    Place a doormat which helps in reduction of mud or
    dirt entering through footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile and grout cleaning process, types of tiles are as follow –

    Ceramic
    Porcelain
    Stone

    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult
    if the surface is cleaned regularly. The surface can be vacuum cleaned every
    day or just sweep it. The wet mopping is required once in a week.
    Use of mild floor cleaners will do for the mopping. One can make
    it at home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.

    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.
    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners can be used for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles
    made of stones as they are natural minerals. Never
    use harsh floor cleaners. Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry mop to
    soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to
    regularly clean the grout, i.e. the lines between the tiles.
    Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously. Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease
    etc. The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean. It can also be a cause of mildew or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms.
    It is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the
    grout which will not only protect the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    Many a times it gets difficult to maintain the floor due to hectic working schedules.

    Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our clients at a very affordable price.
    Moreover the price depends on the type of the tiles, number
    of tiles and size of the tiles to be cleaned.

    Following steps are followed for the tile and grout cleaning
    after you contact us-

    Pre inspection of the tiles and floor.
    Shifting of the furniture, if any, from that space.
    Dry Sweeping of the surface
    Application of the suitable cleaning solution.
    Cleaning the surface with a soft pad.
    High pressure cleaning
    Mopping and drying the surface.

    We have our experts who carry special tools to do the tile and
    grout cleaning; the grout sealing is also done if ordered.

  17. LinkedIn has a great feature that connects with your existing email accounts and allows you to invite
    anyone you have interacted with to your network.
    This means that you might reach people you interacted with once or twice, or people that you haven’t spoken with in a while.
    This is a powerful tool, but are you using it effectively in your marketing?

    LinkedIn as a Data Collector
    Look at all the ways you can collect data from people. The
    easiest metric to track for most is their email addresses, so ask people and promote their use.
    Create mailers or offer contests via email registration. Remember, each email you collect is another potential LinkedIn profile waiting to be connected to.
    Also, you might convince someone to join LinkedIn when they
    receive an invite from you, which means more customers to interact with.

    Easy Ways to Connect on LinkedIn
    So, what are some easy ways to connect with users and get them to want to network
    with you? Many companies have started suing LinkedIn as a corporate
    blog to promote brand awareness. These blogs might not even have anything to do with the products being sold, but they might tie in with
    corporate culture or offer up some helpful knowledge or technique.
    This is called generating substance, and if you want people to see a value in your postings, you need
    to provide that substance, otherwise they simply
    won’t care.
    The nice thing about this is you don’t have to be a multi-faceted business guru
    to provide content. Maybe you promote an interesting link of the day, or maybe you repost a news story
    about something company-related (please give credit if you do this.).
    It could even be a humorous blurb or story, or even a business-appropriate joke to
    keep your network’s attention. The only constant is that the postings stay constant.
    If you start it, then maintain it to help build that brand awareness.
    Remember, people won’t actively look for you if they
    don’t know you exist.
    One great way that some companies have started building a loyalty network is
    through promoting their employees. Some companies will offer a spotlight on their employees, showing off the projects they have done or discussing their
    high points. This not only helps to ensure your employees feel
    valued, but it also helps to paint your company as more human, which is something you want when trying to get people to connect with you.

    Pitfalls and Things to Avoid With LinkedIn
     
    Most of what has been discussed here has been the positives of using
    LinkedIn for your promotions, but there are some pitfalls you may want to avoid.

    Again, not all marketing works for all niches and some can be turned off more easily than others.

    For starters, when advertising with a graphic, consider the context that your audience will view
    it in. LinkedIn is business to business networking.
    Is your picture one that would be considered
    safe for a business networking platform? Yes, attractive, nearly-naked people tend to get
    clicks, but are those the kind of ads people at major corporations are going to be more than likely
    be turned off due to lack of professionalism?
    Consider your content in your pictures before posting and make
    sure your graphics are a good match to your audience and marketing message.

    Second, watch your language. While on the surface, this could be taken as
    do not swear, on a deeper level, you have to consider what a company will filter
    for and what they will allow. Some words tend to trigger web filters pretty easily, so
    be careful about your verbiage. Also, look at the message your words send.

    Are you trying to be edgy, dynamic, endearing?
    Do your words properly convey the message you want people to see?
    Sometimes people get so wrapped up in sending out a strong message that they fail to consider if it is the right one.

    Third, don’t verbally tie yourself to a region or company if you can help it.
    While you may want to highlight a company on a landing page or maybe
    you are geared towards a certain region of the world, you don’t want
    to inadvertently exclude potential customers because they think your ads don’t immediately apply to them.
    Remember, you can focus your ads in terms of companies and locations ahead of time,
    so listing out that info in the actual ad
    might prove redundant.
    Fourth, don’t slack on your content. It can be easy to start with
    a big push, but the number one thing that kills an audience’s interest
    is inconsistency. Don’t slouch on your posts. Make sure you dedicate
    a certain period of time each day to providing some form of content.
    If you can’t or think you might have problems with this, hire someone
    to do it for you or spend a day or two generating multiple posts so that
    you can just plug and play. However you do it, just be sure to keep doing
    it. You are setting an expectation of service as accompany when you post,
    and to do so inconsistently will send a bad message abour what your
    company considers professional.
    Fifth, be careful on rebranding. Some smaller companies take the
    philosophy of experimentation a bit too far and keep trying to reinvent themselves
    every month or quarter, but the truth of it is that many companies form bonds over the
    long term with clients, and just because you announce a
    name change or a new logo, that doesn’t mean that your clientele is paying attention. To build your brand, you need consistency,
    so stick to a logo or name and try to avoid being so edgy that you can’t make up your mind
    about your name. Remember, you’re a business, not a rock star.

    LinkedIn Final Thoughts
