Recording The Bone Road

I’ve started recording The Bone Road as a podcast. I estimate it will be close to 30 half hour episodes, and I’m planning on uploading it to podiobooks when complete, as I did with Matcher Rules. Reading, editing, adding sound: each episode does take a while to complete, so I’m looking at a great deal of time and energy over the next month or so.

The new microphone has definitely improved the sound quality. I’m also trying to add more expression to my narrative; several listeners have commented on this, so I’m trying to improve. I do hope the entire process goes faster than the first book and it should. The last time I had to teach myself how to record, edit, mix sound, add tags, and use at least three pieces of unfamiliar software. I think I’m over that part of the learning curve.

I am a bit worried about the new book getting shunted aside for this, but there is no way around it. I’ve promised myself to write SOMETHING on it once a day. I hope I can keep it up.
