Drawn In

Audiobook Adventures… Take Two!

About four years ago, I started on a journey to get Drawn In produced as an audiobook. It was exciting, and I learned a lot in the process, but ultimately it didn’t play out. It’s no one’s fault & there’s no ill will at all, just to be clear.

But now it’s four years later, and I am so ready to try this thing again! I’m on the hunt for my Rennie. So if you are an audiobook narrator (or know one to share this with), give it a shot! It’s open for auditions on the ACX website and I’ve already received a few great submissions!!

A few notes:

    This will be a single narrator production, not full cast. I’m looking for one person.
    The main character is a 16-year-old girl, standard American accent.
    This will be royalty-share (but I am willing to negotiate for the right person if something else is needed).
    Ideally, I’ll want to use ONE narrator for all three books in the trilogy. (Book three is still being written.)
  • One minor character has a British accent (London… think Doctor Who, not Downton Abbey).

Contact me with questions! I’m sooooo excited to get going on this!! 😃

Writer’s Bucket List

bucket list

 

Confession right up front: I’m totally stealing this idea. I follow a great writing blog by Ave Jae (you can find her list here) and I found it so inspiring, and a great way to keep an eye on the prize. It also made me think about what “the prize” really is. Mine will be different since I’m not focusing on traditional publishing. But it’s precisely because of this reason that I want to do this. I think it will help to focus me since I feel a little flounder-y at the moment. So, with a hint from Ava Jae, I’m starting with a few things that I’ve already accomplished (because really, what is better than crossing things off a list?). So here goes…

  1. Finish first draft of a full-length novel
  2. Finish initial edit of a novel
  3. Finish final edits of a novel
  4. Choose fantastic cover art
  5. Go to a writer’s convention
  6. Publish my first book!
  7. Hold a finished, published, perfect copy of my book in my hands
  8. Have a launch party
  9. Have a book signing
  10. Get a great review from a complete stranger
  11. Outline a whole trilogy
  12. Complete a trilogy
  13. Get a fan letter
  14. Be someone’s favourite author
  15. See fanfic based on my characters
  16. See a tattoo based on my books
  17. Have an agent seek me out

So there we have it! What’s on your list?
