I was down to the last chapter to record in this audiobook when I came down with a cold. Slept all day instead of recording, then woke up at 3:30AM and couldn’t get back to sleep. Alright then, let’s get to work. Only my voice was gone, so another day wasted.
Was finally able to talk well enough to get it done today, so that’s in the can. Now for the rest of it. Converting to proper audio format, packaging and uploading to the distributor.
Note to self: don’t get too attached to your plans.-)
The recording of Vin Stone — Not a Detective is about halfway to completion. I’m using a new recording system, so it’s been an interesting time of learning as well as production. It sounds different from my previous readings, which shouldn’t be surprising, I guess. It’s different equipment and a different setup. As I get used to it, though, I have to be careful that the chapters don’t sound different from each other. I’m no longer recording in a closet, with all those clothes to damp down the echoes, so I have to find other ways to accomplish that.
I’ve been recording The Plainsrunner for a couple of weeks, and it’s going well. There should be about two more weeks of it, then it will be on to polishing it up for presentation. I’m finding these sessions a little easier than the recordings I made of the Green Comet trilogy, which you can find on the Downloads page. I think that mostly comes down to shorter chapters, which are easier to do, and a shorter story overall, which is less daunting.
I always seem to enjoy this part, while also not looking forward to it. People say they like the audiobooks, though, so it’s worth continuing.
