So, I’m pretty sure I have mentioned this in an off-hand way, but I find I am very excited about the idea, and have actually started planning it. Yep, I am going to get into the self-publishing world through what I think of as the back door: I have all the technology, and the skill, to put my work out as a podcast. So that’s what I’m going to do.
I came up with the idea months ago, but it has taken me ages, and lots of sharing with other people, to actually believe that it is a good idea. I have had a few consulting-type chats with the Boy, and he has given me lots of cool pointers, which my brain is now working on. I’m so excited about it! It’s like this was what I have been working toward all along. All my experience with music editing, getting into audiobook narration (Thanks Brian Rathbone!), not mention being an actor and a singer… These are the Things I Need in order to make this happen!
I have to come up with a title for the podcast, and a logo, but I have already decided on theme music (SO excited about that part!), and some other cool things I will do. I will read my own work, beginning with the Gatekeeper trilogy (it’s no longer called Dark Elf’s Warrior, btw… I never liked that title), add some short fiction between books, maybe feature some work by my friends every now and again… Even record some episodes before live audience!
It’s going to take me a while to get started, because I want to finish Book Three, plus there are Things to Plan, but stay tuned. 🙂
