Progress on the Audiobook
We're really rolling now on the production of our home-brew full-cast audiobook of Neptune Crossing. Our narrator Bob Kuhn has recorded through Chapter 12, and the dialogue cast has done quite a bit of recording, bouncing around through a number of chapters—sort of movie-shoot style, so as to consolidate reading sessions for the characters who are in fewer scenes. It is remarkably difficult to do good voice acting for an audiobook. Bruce Coville told us he actually had stage actors at his Full Cast Audio studio who said, this is too hard—too different—can't do it. Not stopping us, though! We're on a steep learning curve, but we haven't been flung off into space quite yet.
While Allysen's away, we're taking a pause in recording, and hoping to get some of the editing done, so that we can start to hear what a fully assembled production will sound like.
I hope to get a bit of a teaser up online soon.
