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
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.
