My Special Holiday Project Gift From Me to all of You...

The holiday season is upon us, and I hope you are all enjoying yourselves. I know I've been on the quiet side for some time, but I've been dealing with some health issues (which I'll discuss down the road, it's still not fully resolved yet). But I've also been working on a special project for the last 2 years. It's been quite a journey with this particular effort of mine, as it's part audiobook and part video. 

As you all know I've done a fair amount of audio work, but adding video was a whole new ballgame for me. Getting everything lined up just right, finding imagery in public domain, as well as music to go along with it, took a considerable amount of time and energies. But I feel like the results were worth it. I learned a lot along the way and may actually start doing some podcasting in the near future. We'll see.

But for now I'd like to present to you all to a brand new Unabridged presentation of Mr. Charles Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol". It's up on YouTube and you can reach it simply by clicking on the image below:




Why I chose this particular work is explained in the opening of the video itself, but I'll briefly summarize my reasoning here. After years of watching all the versions created for film and television, I finally read the novella itself and discovered that a large proportion of the story never makes it to the screen. And as I read, I found myself occasionally reading aloud in various voices I assigned the characters in my head. So, after actually doing audiobooks, I felt it was time to give Mr. Dicken's story a shot. 

So far, my beta-viewers were all pleased and impressed with the finished project. And I hope all of you will be as well. 

Please leave any comments on YouTube, as well as hitting the Like button if you enjoy what I've brought you. 

I am considering doing some more Christmas related ghost stories down the road, as I've discovered a trove of such stories available in the public domain. For those who don't know, ghost stories at Christmas was a time-honored tradition over in Europe, long before Mr. Dickens created his famous novella. I'll go into why this was so in more detail in my next post, but for now please enjoy my holiday season offering and stay safe my friends.

And as always, keep writing and recording, everyone.
