So much for staying on top of the blogging. It’s almost November. How did that happen?
Well, it happened while producing several back-to-back audiobooks as well as other VO projects from August to now. The End, Take No More and Hannah and the Gods of Olympus all were released during the month of August.
And despite a week break (took a drive down highway 1 to Big Sur) I was back in the booth again with two more audiobooks. Wander & Roam just came out yesterday. It’s a contemporary romance, which I admit, isn’t a genre that usually draws me in, but this particular book about a pair of young people who escape from their emotional turmoil to volunteer at a farm in Australia was beautifully written. plus I do love practising my Australian accent. I have yet another audiobook coming out about the pirate queens Anne Bonny and Mary Read which should be released within the next week or so.
Oh, and on top of that, I went to an audiobook masters workshop with Pat Fraley, which, as with all of Pat’s workshops, was very enlightening. Phew. Busy few weeks.
Things are slowing down at the moment, but with the promise of more things on the horizon come January.
Does this mean I shall actually have some time to blog about voice over without just plugging audiobooks? Hopefully. I have a few ideas of things I want to talk about, especially in the audiobook world, since I often meet authors who have no idea where to start or why narrators charge the rates they do.
In addition to the blogging, I’m hoping to do some site revamping just because, well, I’m bored, and this is what I do when I’m not in front of the mic. I’d also like to take some time out to specifically work on getting a video game demo put together. That is the goal for 2015. Well, that and actually booking work with AAA titles off that demo. That would be the real goal.
I know. All in good time.
