Holiday discount and free Christmas gift!

Looking for a great gift for an actor this holiday season? Or looking to save money while improving your own dialect and accent skills? My book, Accents and Dialects for Stage and Screen, makes the perfect stocking-stuffer for the actor in your life! He or she will love mastering its 27 accents and dialects, using the book’s fun exercises and accompanying sound files.

And to make it more affordable, from now until January 5, I’m offering $10 off on both the Deluxe Streaming print edition AND the iTunes ebook (Apple Book) version. That’s just US$69.95 (or US$69.99 on iTunes) instead of the usual US$79.95.

The Deluxe Streaming edition is a printed book with the sound files available via streaming audio from any internet-connected mobile device or computer. It’s available for this discounted price on this site (select Deluxe book w/streaming audio) until January 5. (The iTunes ebook must be purchased directly on iTunes by the account holder who wishes to use the ebook, but what a great inspiration for an iTunes gift card!) The original CD version of my book is still available for its usual price of $99.95 but does not contain Jamaican, Estuary, or Birmingham.

Please note that the discount is not available on Amazon. However, if you are outside the United States, you might find it cheaper to order the book through your own country’s Amazon, such as or

And now … my gift to you: my audiobook reading of Charles Dickens’ beloved A Christmas Carol. Just click the link to start listening absolutely free. (The link will expire January 5.)

As 2023 draws to a close, may your holidays bring peace and joy to you and all your family.
