Audiobook Version of Engine of Creation:The Complete Series is Now in Process

The recording, editing, and mastering of the audiobook version of EoC:TCS has begun in earnest. Using parts from a now-defunct podcast my wife and I put together years ago, I've assembled a small recording studio in the back of my walk-in closet--finally found a use for all those 4XLT flannel shirts I own.

The book breaks down into seven intros, one outro, and eighty-eight chapters for a total estimated length of ten-eleven hours. This will require anywhere from seventy to over a hundred hours of work to complete. Currently, I am working on Book 1-Weapon, and I hope to work out most of the bugs in the process by the time I start Book2-Rescuer.

The biggest hurdle I've encountered is my lack of speaking experience. For the last several decades or so, I have verbally communicated with my fellow human beings less and less. I am uncomfortable in group situations and do not enjoy casual conversation, so narrating a book--even my own--is really pushing my comfort envelope. As the great poet said: Buck up, Snowflake. The corn isn't harvesting itself (actually, I just made that up.)

I'll keep you posted with updates. Until next time, have a good one.

Announcing: Zayden by Frank Carey

Zayden by Frank Carey

Zayden Wilcox had what he considered a dream job: Space Patrol Marshal for the sector of Losig Maltrose Station and beyond. He had a routine that would bore a normal man to tears, a staff who loved him, and an ex-smuggler ship he called home. Then everything went to heck when his ex-fiancée showed up with a surprise thirty years after she left him at the altar.

Oh, and did we mention the interdimensional disaster unfolding or the assassin trying to kill him. Yeah, boredom was looking better by the minute.
