Listening to your own work as an audiobook!

 

Well it kinda says it all really. The last few weeks and well the whole of this year so far almost seem a blur, from one thing to another, ups and downs as with life always…

Yet today I had plans, I woke early and couldn’t focus, back on the good ole plan (lipotrim) to get me in the healthy zone in the docs. I did so fab last year, but I’m still at the top end of the weight I want to be, and what is healthy for me, so almost 2 weeks in and feeling the pain of it all haha, the second time is so much harder. But the benefits are worth it, I know they are.

So yeah, no focus and you know when you really need it and it’s just not there yeah. So, ibuprofen, some paracetamol and lots of coffee and I just about started to come around.

I have always so much to do, that never ends, write up crits for the team on Scribophile, (which I’m near done on) and continue with a script I’m working on, I did sign up for camp nano and my cabin is awesome, yesterday I hit the ground running with a few wordwars after work to write 3.5k on my futuristic SO with my fav female character, Sarah Mendoza. I have to warn everyone this is a little out of my comfort zone, space battles and hardship I can handle, but she’s leaning towards a slightly erotic tone of content, haha, I love her but boy she’s opening my eyes.

But, I had an email late last night… A good one, squeeee and cue all excited jumps etc. I had the go ahead to go over the first section of audio for both TSK’s book 1 – Lethao narrated by Greg Tremblay and for our Shorts, The Truth Hurts narrated by Holly Adams.

I’ve only just got into listening to AudioBooks, so the experience of living inside the world someone else created for a few hours is just settling into my mind.

It’s a whole different ball game when someone else is narrating your world, your characters and their story.

It’s not like I write it and forget the story, no, but it’s like experiencing it all for the very first time.

I still haven’t done as much as I’d like, a house to clean and stuff to do here, but I listened to Holly’s work twice (loved it) and then moved onto the first book which I’m now up to chapter 4 on. This might take me all weekend. Haha, but I’m loving it. Kinda here thinking, I didn’t write this did I? but yes, I did. I’m very proud of the team where we’ve come from and where I hope we’ll go.

Thanks for being there with me @TeamSecretKing you brought to life what was only in my head. Now it’s free for everyone else to enjoy or hate, hehehe

Hugs –

CampNano!

So yeah. That says everything. April is looking good and I’m excited as usual. I have one story I haven’t finished from last year which is still begging to be continued. I am heavy in beta edits still from TSK’s book 2, which I’ve 7 chapters to get through this weekend. I’ve been out this morning with mum got some bits to keep me going and now I gotta knuckle down and get on with it. 🙂

Anyone else doing it? want to join in my small writing group on facebook… It’s a small group of last years camp participants a few nano friends and will have some from this year 🙂 but we’re from all over the world, all ages and genres, some huge talent…

If you do let me know, the more the merrier to get April well off to a good start. We’re in plotting and planning stages still but the more the merrier.

EXCITED!!!!!!

TSK- moving forwards.

Hey there everyone.

As I said yesterday, with the new year and all that ‘building work’ finally out of the way. (6 whole weeks where I had to step away from the writing side of things)  we’re back at it.

Organisation took over this weekend, and I’m happy to say that we’re got a good plan for the year. A very action packed and full year of course, but an exciting one.

The art work for the short stories is coming in nice now, and we’re about to really launch and start marketing our members only section with them in mind. It’s fab to be able to see how these have come along in the last 6 mths.  Formatting the stories and the artwork together, they look, simply amazing.

At the beginning of December, as the company we advertised and took on 3 other writers. 3 very good writers, who took on the projects given to them with great enthusiasm. I’m very excited that we’ve had some submissions for the short stories from them already, and we’ll be extremely happy to be adding their names permanently to the TSK Team. 🙂

However with the added writers and their amazing ‘minds’ the shorts, have gone from a possible 16- to an infinite amount! lol  Some of TSK’s other characters are now being developed on a deeper level. With each authors interpretation of their lives and events. This is fab and is in my mind collaboration at it’s best.

Here’s one of the pics from our first short, just as a reminder…. we’ve circulated a few of them on facebook and twitter, and when I went to meet Andrew and I saw them in the flesh they blew me away. (Art Gallery opening soon) lol

TSK-Lethao001

The particular scene is from Lethao 🙂

Watch this space. The first short story will be out soon! and we’ve a fab schedule for the others and I’m back to working on book 2’s beta edits. This will be one heck of a year. Stick with us this will be fun.

Building site!

So yeah that pretty much says it all. We’re living in a building site at the moment, as work on the house, started a week ahead of schedule. oopsie.

I had to give in early on nano because of all this planning, even though I made the 50k because I planned well, the novel isn’t finished and I’m so behind on everything. Oh well.

The back of our house.

Things have gone a lot better towards the end of this year, we’ve lots good happening, not just the publication of TSK or of Trent’s wonderful language book this month, but for us personally, my mum and the house.

We were going to move rooms, our living room used to be a bedroom and we were going to swap them back around. But, instead we decided to alter the structure of the house and make it better for us. That of course involves a good amount of cash, which we had, and some time away from stuff.

So, knocking through two rooms, putting in steel beams and redecorating in December isn’t a very good idea, but it’s the best time for us to do it, we’re not really xmas people… lol It’s hard on Bobby and us though, moving stuff, and just total upheaval.

Here’s some before, and during pics. I will of course, keep them posted as things are done, it’s really nice to have those memories to remember.

I’ve had a rough week at work, with different things going wrong, but now, I’ve a week to clean, sort things out, and catch up on lots of stuff I’ve neglected.
