A Time For Reflection and Plotting the Year Ahead
I also managed to finish recording Helen's second solo novel "Forever Haunted".
I am currently completing final edits of the recordings, and will be submitting them to Audacity for review. Once approved, it will be available on Audible, so stay tuned.
Finally, I got myself an account on Instagram. If you'd like to follow me over there, here's my link:
My goals are to network and entertain, as well as help promote our books and projects.
So what are my plans for 2021?
Well, for starters, finishing the final edits and getting the audio files for "Forever Haunted" submitted to ACX for approval of course. I've re-edited nine of the 18 chapters, as well as the opening and closing credits.
Once I've got those out of the way, I'll start recording "Forever In Deep".
As the year progresses, I'd also like to finish recording the remaining chapters of my "A Christmas Carol" project for release on YouTube in December. I still have to edit the current files, as well as add more soundtrack layers for sound effects and other touches, as well as locate more public domain, and non-copyrighted images for the video.
I of course wish to have completed 1st drafts of "The Door" (the direct sequel to "The Bridge") as well as "The Vampyre Blogs - Family Ties" (which is a direct sequel to "The Vampyre Blogs - Coming Home).
There will also be book cover art that will require my attention for Helen's 4th solo novel "Forever Festive", "The Door", and "The Vampyre Blogs - Family Ties"
Helen and I are also considering trying our hands at some podcasting, focusing mostly on writing, recording audios at home, and other creative endeavors.
I have dozens of other ideas, but I'm trying to keep things within the realm of actually getting done this year, without killing myself. I'm still working full-time at the county. Currently I'm alternating one week in the office with the public (which is nerve-wracking because of the pandemic) and then one week home telecommuting. So, trying to keep a balance of what's doable as opposed to moaning about what I can't get to, is really tricky at times.
And of course, I will be posting more here about my audio adventures, including more bloopers, as well as sharing thoughts on writing.
There's a lot on the agenda as you can see, so we hope you'll stick with us. And as always, keeping writing everyone.
