Eek. It really has been far too long since I last posted. Mostly for good reason. I’ve been very busy with audiobooks these past few months. In fact I’m in the middle of juggling three and possibly a fourth audiobook project, although two are almost ready for retail.
Alas, I did not make it to APAC this year, but that was a very slim possibility. I will say I feel pretty good about being able to attend APAC next year. Which will be in Chicago, another place I’ve never been to, and will give me the opportunity to meet up with an author friend of mine. Bonus!
I’ve also been very busy with video game work. I’ve recorded more voices for Infinifactory, a game by Zachtronics. I voiced four characters and they are all quite different. I also got to voice one of two playable characters for a couple of other titles. One was for Heroes of Newerth in which I played Riptide. The second is for a zombie DLC which is still awaiting release.
They were a lot of fun. I got to channel my inner badass as well as practice my exertions. Exertions, for those not involved in video games, are the grunts, heavy breathing and death cries that you usually hear in games.
Alas, these past few months has left me little time to market. So no Dragon Age: Inquisition yet! The good news is that with all this video game work I have a lot of new samples to add to my demo, which is exciting. I feel like I now have a pretty good range with alien military leaders, fighters, hysterical women, snooty women, villainesses and a whole range of exertion noises to really take my demo and marketing materials to the next level.
Finally, before I forget, June is audiobook month. So in honour of audiobook month, here’s a sample from Aranya by Marc Secchia.
