It’s been a very busy month; in addition to everything below, I learned how to juggle! It’s not a skill I thought I’d pick up anytime soon, but a friend put together a free 5-day course that made it attainable! I’ve certainly not mastered it (gotta work on toss consistency!), but I’m really thrilled with my progress. There have been lots of *very* frustrated moments, and yet I can actually juggle for a bit! Those smiling fellas are DIY juggling balls you learn how to make in the course from rice and balloons!
I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to and any other comments you have – leave a note below!
Here’s a quick look at recent adventures:
Audiobook release: I narrated Change The Management by Al Comeaux, teaming up with Deyan Audio! “With well-told stories that illustrate the need for a fundamentally new way of thinking, this book finally speaks straight to leaders to help them re-think how to manage change – and even how to lead every day.”
New demos: I’ve continued working with Shannon Parks on fiction narrating and we’ve put together a couple new demos from A Man Called Ove and The Count of Monte Cristo. I’ll be posting these soon on the site and elsewhere, but for now, you can listen to Ove here and Cristo here.
Prepping two historical fiction audiobooks: on the heels of Haboob Wind, I’m now working on a second book for the same author, Tommy Anderson—though instead of jumping ahead in time, we go back 150+ years to the Civil War and General Sherman’s March to the Sea! And second, I’ve re-published my grandfather’s novel Icy Cape based on his time as a radar technician in the 1960s at that station in Alaska; eBook and print versions are available now!
Voiceover work for podcasts: a bit out of the blue, I was contacted to record intros, outros, and bumpers for two different podcasts. It was great to be part of these projects, and I look forward to listening once released!
Taught two workshops: first was for San Diego Writer’s Ink, teaching authors how to read their books (at in-person and virtual events) and audiobook production, and the second was for Independent Book Publisher’s Association, sharing strategic ways to market audiobooks. Both turned out very well!
More ahead! Be well and keep in touch!
