Audiobook #2 Update

I did a re-recording of An Improbable Journey tonight, and I used a new microphone. This one's directional, and seems to do a much better job than the iPad mic I used on  My Abstract Life.

Take a listen and let me know what you think of the difference in the comments! I've got editing on the new episode started, and should have it done tomorrow. I've also continued editing The Fast and the Dead, though I have no ETA for it.

My Abstract Life Free eBooks Available

Sorry this took so long, everyone! Now that My Abstract Life is both out of the KDP Select program and through my extended I'm-still-learning audiobook recording phase, I've got the new version ready as an ePub and as a .mobi file for Kindle enthusiasts. You can download it free now right here, and I'll have it up on Smashwords and Goodreads soon too.

    Fiction Improbable Audiobooks Episode 1 - My Abstract Life on YouTube

    As promised, the YouTube version of the My Abstract Life is up. Next, the new version of the ebook!

    Fiction Improbable Audiobooks Episode 1 - My Abstract Life

    Okay, enough dithering around and procrastinating on the launch. Here's episode 1. I've gotten lots of feedback to make it better than it was when I started, and I hope to get a lot more now that so many more of you can hear it, but I'll have to apply those new lessons to future audio books.

    This was both a terrifying and kind of awesome project to work on, and I hope you enjoy listening to it!

    Speaking of future audio books, I'd love some feedback on what stories you'd like narrated next. Determination is a good candidate, being another short one, and I could always return to the Prices stories if you want to get into some steampunk. I could tackle some of the longer stuff like The Ship of the Unforgotten, but stories that long will have to be broken up across many episodes.

    Take a listen; it's pretty quick, a little over 7 minutes long, and let me know what you think!

    This SHOULD be going out onto iTunes as well, thanks to Squarespace, but being a total newbie to all of this, I have no idea how long that's going to take. As I did with the episode 0 preview, I'll be putting this up on YouTube too.

    Recording Sessions

    I did another recording session tonight, and I'm starting to learn some of the tricks people use to not completely destroy their voices. (Which is sad. This is a short story; my longest take to date is not even 15 minutes.)

    I'll work on editing it some tonight, and then finish it up tomorrow, then get it out to some beta-listeners for feedback. It is thanks to them that I've kept on doing new recordings. I've gotten some fantastic feedback that has saved me from releasing rushed, poor quality audio.
