I finished the latest audiobook yesterday, It's called The Cotswolds Werewolf and other stories of Sherlock Holmes, so it's been approved by the rights holder and is now in the process of being quality assessed before heading to retail, fingers crossed that all goes smoothly and that means that it'll be up for sale some time in a week or so.

This experience took place in the ancient Lancaster Castle a great stand in for Hogwarts...(ok Hogwarts with Scaffolding)

Kane's Cross Released!

It's taken a couple of weeks to produce this novel as an audiobook, I had to go back and do the first seven chapters again as I wasn't happy with a small echo I was getting. So I've padded up my little booth in the corridor under the hall in the cellar. The Builders are driving me nuts with their beep beep beep reversing machines, cement mixers, clanging trowels aetc etc so the sooner they are gone th e better but there's still a couple of months left yet easily!&...

New stuff is happening. After finishing on the last audio book I was advised to try out the audiobook exchange. The site is mostly a collaborative thing between authors/publishers and actor/producers. There are a few books that pay an upfront fee for the producers services (very few) but largely the authors or publishers offer book up for a 50% royalty share, so I decided to give it a go.

I was under no illusions there were thousdands of authors and tens of thousands of narrator...

I went down to London a week and a half ago for the photo shoot and the publicity machine is already gearing itself up into action.

Next week sees me recording the next in the Agent of Rome series and I've spent a considerable amount of time prepping the PDF copy I'd been sent with the var...

I've been away for a few days working in Leeds for Sneaky Experience who as their website states provide adventurous pop-up cinema screenings to audiences of all ages in unique and inspiring locations. Which means not only do the audience get to see great movies like Lord of the rings in the inspiring surroundings of a ruined abbey they also get to meet characters based on the film beforehand and interract with them in a fun way via various games and scenes based on the film.

Things suddenly became very busy over the last few days! I was contacted by Oakhill Publishing and asked if I could jump in and take over on an audiobook so I had to quickly create an audio sample and send it in for approval by the publishers as this book is a gritty story of the experiences of a young northern girl who gives birth to a half caste baby in the early 80's and is kicked out by her mother and her subsequent problems.
