As predicted, the wind blew and it got cold. It was definitely a good day to spend in the recording booth. I recorded two chapters. Then while my son and I watched a movie, I mastered five tracks on the book bringing me to current on it. I still need to listen thought and take … Continue reading Recording day
I've been slowly getting back to narrating. It got challenging last year with all the smoke in the air and I'm very sensitive to smoke, so it was making my throat raw. I certainly wasn't going to do anything to hurt my voice, so I stopped. Unfortunately, that allowed life to get in the way. … Continue reading Second hit of the reset button
I can't believe we're into August 2021! For me, it's been a strange, wonderful, busy year. Unbelievably. I thought I was going to be able to get back to recording audiobooks in June, but the weather until recently was so hot that it didn't happen. Things are finally cooling off, so I imagine that I'll … Continue reading August already?
The long awaited 5th novella of my Loki series has arrived on audio. It's not up everywhere. I have to give a laughable side note here: I've seen warnings that ingestion of audiobooks at ACX and others are creating temporary delays with getting titles released. "Ingestion?" What is this? Mortal Engines? Maybe it's a throwback … Continue reading For More Mischief, Listen Now

I do think a section of my brain just works on things … Continue reading Progress bar updates

Here I am again with another Diana Wynne Jones book. This audiobook was much shorter than Castles in the Air. I also fell into the story much faster, probably because I knew it was another book where Howl would make an appearance. And he does come in much sooner. If you know Howl, you spot … Continue reading Thoughts on House of Many Ways
At first, it was a relief not to do the weekly progress blogs. I could put the words to my story instead. I was kind of glad that I had released myself from that self-imposed obligation. Then, over the last couple of weeks, I've been missing them. Not doing them weekly, but the chat I … Continue reading Progress – March 2019
I'm a Diana Wynne Jones fan. Pure and simple. When I was looking for a new book to listen to, I decided that I wanted another DWJ book. I had once heard that Castle in the Air was a sequel to Howl's Moving Castle. On this particular day though, I couldn't find any confirmation that it was. I decided to take … Continue reading Thoughts on Castle in the Air
