With only two days left before my self imposed deadline, I have finally finished recording all audio for the Podiobook version of the book. I’ll be staying up tonight dividing the chapters into actual episodes with intros/outros and music. The cover has gone through another ten or so revisions and still has a couple things that need fixin’. Then it’s on to formatting the text and making sure that all my T’s are dotted and i’s are crossed. And yes, I know that’s an annoying use of an apostrophe, but it enhances meaning, so…
It’s amazing all of things that you don’t think about when you aren’t trying to independently publish, but it’s a maze of tasks and the one I’m looking forward to the least (probably because it’s the hardest in my humble opinion…) is writing the book description. It needs to be catching, bold, pithy, enticing, striking, avoid cliches, grasp the readers by the wobbly bits and still make them want to read the book! Oh, and it should be pretty short. So, what the hell am I doing using this post as a personal diary for when I have such a painful job that needs doing? Guard your wobbly bits! Here I go…
Congratulations, Brion!!! I can’t wait!
This is awesome! I’m so pleased to hear you’re also releasing it on Podiobooks. That will help me read it sooner, then I can get a review up on my amazon purchase sooner 🙂 I do 99% of my reading via audio because I have a long commute each workday. Congrats Brion! This is such awesome news!!!
Hey, thanks Dan! It should be up in the couple weeks. Just doing one final pass to catch whatever slipped past when I was staying up until 3am with the boy and dozed off over and over while editing audio. = P
I’ll definitely let you know when it’s up.
Thanks for reading!!!
