Voice Work

This announcement has actually been a long time coming. I should have posted it months ago, but I’ve been up against the wall with different projects and haven’t had the time to post. For the time being, I’m going to have to put a hold on audio projects. We have a number of unfinished repairs to the studio area that have been put off too long. So, for the time being, the studio will get packed away until the repairs are complete.

I must apologize for not posting here lately. Life has been very busy, and in my most productive time I’ve knuckled down on doing my voice recording, to keep to the schedule I agreed on with the producer. There hasn’t been as much time for blogging as I’d like. It has helped me regain some focus, though. I have a bad habit of working on too many projects at once and losing myself between them. While it is good to have the next project waiting in the wings, one must always keep focused on the current goal.

I know I’ve been silent here for a while. It has been almost a month since I’ve been able to update the blog, and I’m afraid I have to say that not all the news is good. We’ve had more than our share of family drama and it has played out somewhat harshly than we had hoped. The repercussions have sent a bit of a wave through our family and we’ve in the process of picking up the pieces.

Last week I talked about getting back to work on writing the next draft of The Perils of Prague. I’ve made a start on it, but it is still slow going, what with everything else going on in my life. Still, I’m making progress. Moving forward. Unfortunately, now I’ve got to add something else to the mix. I’ve got some voice work commitments, and it is time to get recording again so that I can meet them.

Life, it has been said, is what happens while you were making other plans. My last post talked about some of the things that life has brought me, recently. This post, is about the other plans I’ve made. Last year, at Balticon, I started what I had termed my “summer project” to get my novel The Perils of Prague ready for publication by the end of the summer. That project did not go off as planned…

At long last, we have come down to the last episode of the Balticon 47 Wrap up. We hope you’ve enjoyed the long journey to get there, and that you will likewise enjoy this final episode. For our last episode brought to you from Balticon and Swimming Cat Studios, we bring to you the last panel from the New Media Track at Balticon 47. This panel is entitled Multi-Creatives and it is an examination of why some artists are drawn to create in more than one media, how they manage it, and why they continue with it.

This post is partly inspired by a post from P.C. Haring. P.C. has had a very bad September. The theme of his post is “Why do we fall, sir?” The answer, of course, is so we can learn to get back up. But that got me thinking… There are many reasons why we fall. Some trip. Some will leap for greatness and fail to catch themselves. And some… are pushed.

Mixed up over mixers

The last time I posted about my voice work, I had been approached for three new episodes of voice work in addition to the work on P.C. Haring’s Slipspace Harbinger. Now, it is about a month later. I’ve completed two of those episodes, but now I’m going to have to put the last one on the back burner in order to concentrate on my Harbinger commitment. I would have started recording this earlier, except that I’ve added a mixer to my recording set-up. Of course, the mixer itself is what is causing the problem.

This post was inspired by a conversation I had on Facebook this weekend with a fellow writer who has had a difficult time of late. It was also inspired by many, many conversations I have had with other friends who have expressed their gratitude and their respect for all the work I have put into being an author and a voice actor. At first, I didn’t understand where that respect was coming from…

Three Episodes

A lot can change in a week. And it can change in ways you don’t really expect. If you read last week’s #WriterWednesday  post, you’ll recall that last week I had signed on for a voice work contract for a property that I am really excited about doing. Well, that hasn’t changed. What has changed is that I can now say that I’m going to be part of the cast of P.C. Haring’s Slipspace: Harbinger podcast novel. Those sharp-eyed visitors to this site will notice that on my Voice Work page I already have Slipspace: Harbinger listed, and have had it there for a while. Well, that is because P.C. approached me about this role quite a while ago, but events on both our sides of the equation have delayed things from going forward until now. Now, we’re finally getting started with production! But there have been more changes…
