A Thousand Pardons My Friends...
Greetings one and all. Sorry for the silence, but as you can guess I've been really busy on audio and writing projects. Sadly, one of those projects will not come to light until this time next year. This would be the one I last posted about, namely "A Christmas Carol". Between trying to get the audiobook version of "Forever Haunted" completed, as well as a lengthy short story (I know that sounds weird, a short story being lengthy) over on our other blog "The Vampyre Blogs - Private Edition", as well as trying to deal with work and prepping for the holidays, time has not been very available for me.
So I'm planning on releasing my reading/performance of Mr. Dicken's classic for December 2021. It will be complete with voices and sound effects, along with royalty-free and public domain imagery from the internet. At the moment it seems to be coming in at a length of 5+ hours which is why I will be releasing it in staves (chapters) as Mr. Dickens wrote it. In addition, I may produce a complete audio of the performance to be made available on CD or as an MP3 download. But that's all next year.
For now, I'm dealing with new shutdowns here in Santa Cruz, California (due to Covid - 19) which has hampered a number of other efforts Helen and I had planned. As well as other work related issues which have left us both rather tired at times.
Helen also had to scale back on releasing her 4th novel in her "Forever Detective Series", to next year as well, since it too is Christmas related. However, she did complete a short story that will be posted soon over on her blog theforeverdetective.com. We intend to also create an audio for that story which will also be published shortly for your enjoyment.
I'll be sharing some new audio recording experiences here on this blog, starting in January. I'll be focusing on editing and more recording techniques, so you know what to keep an eye out for.
I'll post here again as soon as I have something to say, or just to wish you all Happy Holidays.
In the meantime, if you want a ghost story set around Christmas here is a link to the one I've created over on "The Vampyre Blogs - Private Edition". To date there are two installments with more to come. I'll leave the links for those right here and hopefully you'll get a chance to check it out. Enjoy... and until next time, keep writing my friends.
