Happy Sunday, RG2E Peeps!
I’m over the moon to share with you that STUCK WITH A STIFF (The Stuck with a Series, Book One) is now available as an Audio Book!!! And what a unique and exciting listen it is…
Coming to iTunes soon!
In our Indie Epublishing World, it’s all about been there done that, or I think I’ll try this or perhaps that, or nope that one doesn’t seem to be working, or ohhh yeahhh that one is definitely working, or better yet, gosh I love the “sound” of that so okay let’s see how that could work in my multi-media empire.
And, we are building multi-media empires, not just filling cyber shelves with our Ebooks.
Now that we have the opportunity to take our books from Indie Ebooks to Audio Books, we’ve got even more fabulous decisions to make!
After listening to a variety of Audio Books, I decided what I really liked a lot were those books using both male and female narrators. I have a strong theater background, so maybe it was that instinct that drove me. But whatever the reason, my gut told me to pursue this type of “sound” next.
So, when I posted my next two series for auditions on Audible (we really do get to “audition” narrators to produce our books 🙂 ) – The Cozy Cash Mysteries and The Stuck with a Series, I mentioned I was looking for a male/female duo or even an ensemble-style cast.
Wait till you hear my new narrators…
Jeffrey Kafer will be producing my Stuck with a Series Books.
Professional Award-winning audiobook narrator/producer of 60+ titles spanning thrillers, mysteries, drama, comedy and non-fiction
Jeffrey, along with the very talented female narrator – Karyn O’Bryant – as well, will read this series with Jeffrey doing the chapters from the male point of view (POV) and Karyn taking the chapters in the female POV.
Marshall Davis of Davis Sound, LLC will be recording my Cozy Cash Mysteries.
Professional and affordable studio recording for audio books an voice-overs
Davis Sound is an audio recording business set up to cover a wide and complementary range of services. Within these services is audio recording, editing, and mastering provided in our ProTools based 24-track studio. This audio recording capability is used for music, audio books, book trailers, voice-overs, or other similar applications that can be used for promotion.
Davis Sound also provides information and highlights music of various artists associated with Davis Sound, including links to sites where their music can be purchased and downloaded. In time, more musicians that work with Davis Sound will be added.
What’s really cool about what Marshall and his actors are doing is that they are actually going to act out the books. Meaning, that whenever both of my male and female characters are in a scene, that’s the way they will read them. The male actor takes the male characters and lines, and the female handles all of the female characters and lines.
So, there you have it!
Going from Indie Ebooks to Audio Books means New “Sounds,” New Narrators and New Ideas!!!
Have y’all had the opportunity to listen to audio books with both male and female narrators tag-teaming it?! Tell us below…
