Review Reminder Memes

wrr review meme 1

Thought I would make a few Review Reminder memes specific to my own books. This is what I came up with. Just a start, but maybe tweeting these out or posting on FB now and then (but not a constant barrage) might remind folks to leave reviews if they’ve enjoyed my books. Sometimes something more specific helps, I think.

As you might guess, I’m feeling the pressure for not having had enough time to market my books lately. When I’ve only got a short time to play, sometimes graphics are easier than trying to get into writing a scene.  But I’m still experimenting, here.

Thoughts on this idea? Or the memes themselves? Just curious.

Update on Audio Version of Swamp Ghosts

Good News!!

Thanks to an interesting and encouraging post by Don Massenzio, I decided it was time to make my work available as audio books. I signed on with ACX, put up a sample from Swamp Ghosts (the one I’ve had the most requests for), and found a reader whose voice I thought would work. Yesterday, I got the news she has finished recording, and now it’s up to me to listen to the entire book, suggest any changes I feel are necessary, within guidelines, upload the cover resized for a jewel case, and voila! It will be ready to finalize and publish.

So far, this has been an easy process, though with books as long as mine, it does take some time to get them both recorded (on the reader’s end) and proofread (proofheard?) on mine. I have to find 9 hours and 44 minutes in which to sit back and listen, chapter by chapter, author’s notes, acknowledgements, and all. That’s a big chunk of time for me, which I will have to tackle in bits and pieces, but in the long run, it will be worth it.  Audio books are growing at an unprecedented rate, and I believe it’s important to be sure readers have that option.

When this is all over, I’ll post about the entire experience, but I just had to share that the longest portion–reading a 400-plus-page book aloud–is over! I listened to the prologue tonight, and think it sounds darn good, so I’m really excited to see how my narrator has done with the rest, and very much looking forward to being able to offer all of my novels in audio form!

What about you guys? Any of you thinking  of producing audio books? Have you started yet? Do you like to read them, yourself? Have you had experiences you’d like to share? We’d like to hear from you.

#SwampGhosts Audio Book Update

Wow. Things are moving right along. After listening to quite a few audition tapes, I found one reader I believe will be perfect. The tone of her voice is exactly what I wanted, and her southern accent isn’t over the top. So, I made her an offer, and she accepted. I just sent her the manuscript, and the next step is that she will record the first 15 minutes of the book, and submit for my comments, suggestions, and approval. Once we’ve covered that, she’ll read the rest of the book, and submit for my final approval. At that point, I should only be looking for small mistakes. We should be able to iron out everything else from the first 15 minutes.

I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it. Will keep you posted as this process continues.

Soon To Be Available in Audio Format

Yep. You read right. I’m finally done talking about it and taking steps to get my books out on audio. I started with Swamp Ghosts, because local folks have been asking me about this for a long time, so I figure I’d start with the Florida series. I uploaded snippets from the book for auditions, and have been surprised at how many responses I’m getting. Now to pick just the right voice for Maggie, since in this first book of the series, she’s the only character whose point of view is written in first person. The rest are each in third, and will have to settle for Maggie narrating the whole ball of wax.

How many of you have done this? I’d love to hear from those of you who have, so I hope you’ll share your experiences with us. I know of a couple, for sure, so while I’ll be posting about my experiences as things progress, please tell us what yours has been.

My first thought: it was rather surreal, hearing someone I don’t know reading my words. But also, pretty cool! 🙂
