What’s in a name?

Pen Name, Pseudonym, nome de plume, or literary double. No matter what you call it, here are a few things to consider before choosing to use one and creating your own.

Stereo Goals Day 6

With all of my re-recording finished it was finally time to export my audio files! It was a very exciting moment but still a tedious one.  Part of working with my father is that he loves to teach as he goes. That meant while I would much rather be catching up on some market research … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 6

Stereo Goals Day 5

In the beginning, when I gave myself two weeks to record my audio book I hadn’t given a thought to the long editing and publication process. I thought it would take the whole two weeks to finish getting one recording from the beginning to the end of my book. However, since Day 4 was so … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 5

Stereo Goals Day 4

I stepped into the studio ready to go. I’d warmed up my vocal chords beforehand by singing while getting ready and was able to do most of my narration with only one or two repetitions of each paragraph. My deadline was still a heavy weight on my shoulder but not because I wasn’t sure I … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 4

Stereo Goals Day 3

The third day in the studio was a lot easier in some ways and harder in others. The pressure of having such a short time frame to complete my audiobook was getting to me. I rushed through my narration and it ended up taking longer than it should have because I kept getting tongue-tied. There … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 3

Stereo Goals- Day One

The first thing I needed to decide was how to produce my audio book. As I mentioned in my previous post, a professional producer and voice actor are pretty expensive. It’s one of the major factors in the high cost of audiobooks in comparison to their print and digital counterparts. Narrating my own work cuts … Continue reading Stereo Goals- Day One

Stereo Goals

Whoever said, “writing is the easy part”… Well, I’ve said it a few times myself, but lately, I feel like it’s actually the hardest. So in order to keep my brain from shorting out with writer’s worry, I’ve decided to brush off a few projects I had sidelined in my quest to maintain my writing … Continue reading Stereo Goals

Shark Week Blues

Shark Week is officially over and that means it's time for me to get back to work. If only my brain would get on board. All my current story ideas are totally stuck in Shark territory. Sexy marine biologists in dangerously fishy situations here I come. I probably won't be writing these to publish but … Continue reading Shark Week Blues

Snack Attack!

When I get in one of my writing moods nothing can tear me away from my laptop.  Which is why having a fully stocked snack section on my desk is a must, otherwise I'd probably starve to death on my longer writing binges (usual two to three days long).  Sleeping is generally optional and even … Continue reading Snack Attack!

Mind Games

I don't know about anyone else but my brain is one hell of a joker.  I don't know how many times I get the most amazing ideas or have the most awesome days occur and it all turns out to be a dream.  A dream that my mean old brain won't even let me grasp … Continue reading Mind Games
