Introduction to Audiobook Creation with Audio Creation Exchange (ACX)

The following presentation, Introduction to Audiobook Creation with Audio Creation Exchange (ACX), was produced by me with the help of Beizo Tierno, the narrator/ producer of the Apparitions audiobook.

Apparitions audiobook

The presentation came about after I co-hosted a live event on Facebook as part of the inaugural Indie Author Day on Saturday, October 8, 2016.  Then, one of the questions I answered related to the processes involved in producing her aforementioned audiobook, Apparitions.

While comprehensive, my reply was brief, because of the nature of the event, so after mentioning it to Beizo, the idea for this in depth walk-through of the process quickly took shape.  As you’ll see, both Apparitions and Perfect Timing feature, as does my debut title, Serendipity, which is currently only available in ebook format.

The presentation itself is long, but very in depth, so grab a beverage of your choice and settle to watch it.  If you do get to the end, and would like a FREE copy of the Apparitions audiobook, please leave a comment on the post and I’ll get one out to you.

Later that evening while gazing in wonder at his photo albums, she is startled by an instant message from him. Hours fly by as they chat easily, discovering shared interests and passions.

Passions of a different kind are soon ignited as she feels her now best friend’s embrace across the miles. They have shared so many secrets, but her desire for the man who she openly admits adoring is one she dare not share. Not now. Not ever?

Apparitions Paperback Cover Reveal

It’s only a few days since I announced that my short story Apparitions is now available in audiobook format.  And today I’m delighted to share with you that the book’s “family” is growing once more, as I bring you the Apparitions paperback cover reveal.  But before I do, here’s a look at the audiobook cover, for a hint of what’s to come…

Cover Design

I designed the cover to perfectly fit the story.  The silhouetted couple symbolize the anonymity I gave my characters, and I chose the background image of both the sun and moon because it too epitomises the very premise of the story.  Apparitions, as described  here in the opening stanza of the book…

“Anything that appears, especially something remarkable; an act of appearing; manifestation.”

…are not limited to night; the gentle mists can envelop us at any time of day or night.  That itself is something I explored in one of my first blog posts, which has now, rightly, been given it’s own page on the site.  You can read my thoughts on dreams, daydreams, fantasy and more, here.

Apparitions Paperback Coming Soon

The good news is you’ll only have to wait a few days before you can get your hands on the paperback version of Apparitions.  This Saturday, October 8th, is Indie Author Day, and the launch will coincide with that.

What Do You Think?

Have you read Apparitions?  Do you think, as I do, that the cover represents the story?  Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.  Thank you.

Apparitions Audiobook is Available Now

I’m honored to announce that following very speedy production by narrator Beizo Tierno, the Apparitions audiobook is available now.  Many, many thanks to Beizo for such great work and prompt service!

Apparitions audiobook cover revealAdoration.  Desire.  Passion.  Apparitions explores something everyone is familiar with.  Dreams.  We all have them.

Written from a unique, anonymous, perspective, the narrator takes you on a journey through time and consciousness.  And the multitude of physical and emotional responses experienced when you are attracted to someone.

Do they feel the same way?  What should be done or said in their company?

Affection and love are the greatest gifts one can give another.  No matter how old you are, love makes you young again.  It is all encompassing, involving body, mind and soul.

Apparitions is a very emotionally driven story.  One that will arouse, excite and delight the senses.

Quick Update

Hello!  It’s been a while since I posted the Apparitions Launch Giveaway Winners, but I can assure you that I’ve been very busy since then, so today’s post is, as it says, a quick update.

If you follow me on social media, particularly Twitter, you might be aware of some of what I’ve been up to.  But if not, I won’t keep you hanging on any longer…

I’m currently doing the final edit for my first full length erotic romance novel!  And I can now reveal the title will be…

Perfect Timing

While the exact release date is yet to be confirmed, it will be released either late fall or early winter this year.  Yep, you’ll have it in plenty of time for Christmas!

In addition to editing Perfect Timing, I’ve also made one visible change here on the website.  Both pages for my previous releases, Serendipity and Apparitions, can now be found under the “My Books” page on the navigation menu at the top of pages.  If you’ve previously bookmarked their links, or have shared them anywhere, they will automatically redirect, so no need to do anything.  And I’ll soon be adding the Perfect Timing page to that tab too.

To keep up with my latest news and updates, if you’ve not already done so, please consider subscribing to the blog, or following me on social media, including Facebook, and my Amazon Author page.

Do you have any advice for me as I complete the edit?  Please leave a comment and let me know.  I look forward to chatting with you.

Thanks!
