Finding a narrator on ACX

I’ve been…putting off my next real authorly project which is to do the recording on a book I’ve had sitting on the shelf for a year and a half or so. Instead I’ve picked up a couple of jobs on ACX, and I’ve read a ton of descriptions. So I thought I would put it off some more and give some tips on finding a narrator on ACX. I’m not really an expert, I’ve only been doing it for about…

Audiobooks and Audible

A brief update about audiobooks and Audible. I narrated a book a few months ago and it is finally out on Audible.

Why Audio?

So why audio? Why do I make it? Why produce things as audiobooks? I like to write, so why do audio? I recognize not a lot of authors create audio, and even fewer authors create their own audio. (Which is 100% ok!) I was asked why I did it, especially when I talked a little about how much work it is. My experience I’ve actually got a good bit of experience in doing audio. Not entirely like audiobooks or podcasts…

See, smell, hear

I love thinking, but most of these links are more tangible. How we see, smell, hear, and interact with the world around us. Or the world a forever ago. That one is pretty to look at too. Yarnbombing! Fantastically beautiful and cool projects. I’ve seen some of these in my city. I’ve never done one myself, but I have absolutely considered it. Smell tourney What smell would win in your world? I like the smell of thunderstorms and campfires a…

Soup

Another Friday, another challenge from Chuck Wendig at Terrible Minds. Last week people posted the first sentence for something, only the first sentence. He got over 500 comments, eep!, and selected 10. I picked one of those and this is my take on that sentence. Soup “Of all the things I expected to find in my tomato soup, this wasn’t one of them.” (Stella Wood) I grinned and slurped down the chunk of real, fresh tomato. I pushed my spoon…

600 Second Saga

I’m starting a podcast at the end of March. It will be 600 Second Saga. It will be a flash fiction podcast. 600 seconds (or 10 minutes) or less of science fiction and fantasy delivered as a weekly podcast. I will be writing and reading my own works, but I’d also like to read flash fiction from other authors. I am in search of pieces that are 1,000 words or less that float anywhere within or near the sci-fi and…

I’ll announce that when everything is finalized and it is available. Update:…
