Well. Check this out. I wrote and released a book.
“The Eyes In My Dream” took me 5-6 years from start to finish. I discuss the process a little on the book’s page; click on the link in the website’s table of contents.
The audio version is currently going through audible.com’s approval process. Assuming no hiccups, it should be available by 10/4/20.
I’m probably going to make a print on demand version available; I plan to take a closer look at what’s involved later today.
One Man. One Voice. One Year. #OMOVOY continues. I’m releasing original songs on Sundays and cover tunes on Wednesdays. I hope to keep that formula for the rest of the project’s duration - last video will be 3/28/21.
I’m going to write another book. As I type this, I don’t know what it will be, but I have a few thoughts. I could revisit one of the characters from “The Eyes In My Dream.” I think I could do a series of books based around one of them. I could also write something to go with “The Life and Times of Snuffy Wilson.” I actually started at least twice before abandoning it.
I don’t have any other ideas at the moment, and I’m not sure when I’ll start. I did just release something after all, and it’s not like I don’t have things to occupy my time.
Oh, I did have a sort of close call with the audio book. I’ve done a few now, so I’ve developed a process. I usually read through / record a chapter, then go back and edit it - meaning I redo anything that’s necessary, remove mistakes or choose the best takes, etc. I’ll usually do a separate track for each page. It turns out I hadn’t edited the last couple of pages. I damn near put it out that way.
Thankfully, I caught it, and only did so because I wanted to add the chapter titles to the audio version.
I know I haven’t kept up on my blog consistently, and I should. I just don’t always have much to say. Or, I do, but don’t feel like saying it publicly.
That’s it for now. Be good.
