Well, let's say hello to Monday morning. It's supposed to be warm and sunny today, and, of course, I am scheduled to work. According to the forecast, the weather's supposed to be nice for most of the week. That's nice. There's always yardwork to be done. There's a bush growing in front of the porch I need to cut back and possibly remove completely because, little did I know when I planted it, that it's considered invasive.
In spite of it being slow yesterday, I did manage to sell 2 floor measures. That should keep management happy. I made my goal for the week. Yippee. Otherwise it was slow, which meant for a long, boring day at the Flooring desk.
I do have some big news, something that will delight a number of you. My latest book, The Body Under Ice is being turned into an Audiobook. That's right. For those of you who would rather listen to Eli and Max as they drink their wine, this should be very good news. I'm working with a talented narrator named David Magadan (link to his website). A number of narrators auditioned, he nailed it on his first try. I suspect that's pretty rare after hearing so many different voices.
Well done on making your selection. I'd be curious to see how that young man nails the characters' voices. (I love voices so it'd be important to me)!ReplyDelete
I'm pleased to say his Jules Laurent has a nice French accent... But of course.Delete
I was at the big orange box this weekend. The garden department was booming.ReplyDelete
That's where all of our revenue is coming from.Delete
Oh, he sounds good. Kinda young (that was my impression, but you know I like deep voices) but that should provide dynamism to the audiobook. And congrats!ReplyDelete
I can't wait until all the Repugs throw their hat in the ring and Mango Mussolini starts trashing them. Especially Meatball Ron.
A lot of the narrators just didn't hit the mark when trying to sound like 19 year old Tag Bowerman.Delete
And just how did this David audition? Did he read on a casting couch? He's adorable and what a great idea for your book!ReplyDelete
No, through a recording. You'll have to buy the audiobook to find out what he sounds like.Delete
He has some samples in his website.Delete
I would like to hear his French accent, though...
