Long Island Writer Gets New Voice From Local Audio Publisher
SueMedia Productions, of Hempstead, NY, will begin releasing Tom Philbin’s Precinct Siberia novels as audiobooks beginning Wednesday March 30th at Book Revue located at 313 New York Ave. in Huntington, NY at 7:00pm with a reading of selected scenes from the first book in the series. Originally written and released in 1985, Precinct: Siberia is NYC’s 53rd Precinct, where “the heaviest criminals hang out; where the most hardened cops are sent.”
Detective Joe Lawless: tough, street-smart and ruthless, his battles with the brass have landed him in Siberia. Now he's out to nail a sadistic child-murderer before he kills again...
Police Officer Barbara Babalino: sent to Siberia for refusing the advances of her boss, she's out to rescue a young hooker. But the girl's pimp knows something that could destroy Barbara's life...
Detective Leo Grady: with five months before retirement and a flask of vodka in his pocket, he thinks he can take it easy. He can forget it.
Nothings easy in PRECINCT: SIBERIA. A wine and cheese reception and discussion celebrating Tom’s Precinct Siberia series will immediately follow the reading at Book Revue. Downloads will be available through Blackstone Audio. RSVP to SueMedia by Monday, March 28, 2016.

And now, in addition to his ongoing voiceover work, he is an acclaimed and record-setting audiobook narrator with dozens of fiction and non-fiction titles to his credit, and winner of the prestigious Earphones Award.
