So much, in fact, that I really don't read any more at all. I listen instead to about a book a fortnight, and they make my commute to work and my sporadic bouts of exercise almost pleasurable.
From the very beginning of this journey into publication I have been thinking about making an audio book. I had hoped that I would get this done by professionals, but the cost to hire a voice actor and studio is prohibitive to say the least. So I made a decision......
After a bit of advice from G+ user Kenn Crawford I went to Amazon and purchased a Blue Snowball usb microphone and a pop shield. I've just installed GarageBand and so I think i'm ready.
This is what my setup looks like. (I stole the mic stand from the music room at school)
So now I just need to surgically transplant Patrick Stewart's voice box and i'm good to go.
Wish me luck.
Ok -- I now have an initial test recording that I'd love some feedback on.
