Progress Notes

Tales of Episode #207
After some research reading and episode breakdowns (aka outlining), I think I have enough to get started. Act 3 is still about 60-65% worked out, but I figure I'll get cracking with what I've got.

I can always work things out when I get to that point in the story.

As for those other Non-K+M Projects (NKNMP) I mentioned a while back:

NKNMP #1: Swashbuckling fantasy. About 700 prelim words. On hold.

NKNMP #2: Portal fantasy. About 400 prelim words. Also on hold.

NKNMP #3: Bay City story. Still in notes form. And yet another on hold.

NKNMP #4: Bay City story #2 completed at about 3,200 words and now out to market #3

"Read By..."

The other night I happened to land on Clarkeworld's website and noticed the link to "audiofiction."

And saw the notation: "Read by".

And it suddenly hit me--there are peeps doing this online! Right now!

Narrating fiction!

Holy testicle Tuesday! I gotta get in on this!

I mean, I've already had experience acting in audiodramas.

And I did narrate one bit of audiofiction.

So, in conjunction with me finding out how to get started narrating for places like Clarkesworld, I'm also gonna hang out my shingle as an audiobook narrator. Dramatic readings for SF/F flash, shorts, novelettes, and novellas.

Okay. Not quite audiobooks. More like audiofiction.

You get the picture.

Click the link to "Narration" up there under the header for my rates and contact info.

Here's hoping to work with you soon!
