    I just got a contract from SteamyAudio for Lilac Memories that I sent in a few weeks back! I'm thrilled. This will be my very first audio 'book'! heehee. Dancing.

    Yeah it's kind of exciting, they're going to send me the file of it when it's done. I can't wait to hear it. I've never had an audio version of one of my stories. I DO know it's hard to do. After I sold this one, I thought, hey, that's kind of a cool idea, maybe I could record an excerpt and have it on my site for those who'd rather 'hear' it. Now, without being too immodest, I have a fair speaking voice, and don't read in 'monotone' so it came out fairly well... the TRICK is not stumbling in places, or you know, taking that wrong breath, or just any number of things that can foul up even just a short page or so. I can't imagine how many 'takes' it would take to do a complete even short story smoothly.

    But hey, I'm happy--they're doing it--not me.... AND I got my check already from them about a week ago! You have to love a company that pays so promptly.

    Voice work is fun, but not easy. It sounds easy, after all, you only have to talk, right?

    Wrong. LOL

    And yes, gotta love prompt payment.

    I have always wondered how that works? Do you have any say in how they do that? Do you get to approve it before they put it out?

    Yes, I am nosey!
