This is the second-to-last post of my prototype audiobook files. This longer one is chapter two of “Friend & Ally,” wherein Nichole 5 gets her first taste of war. There isn’t much in the way of new character voices but there is a lot of action going on and I wanted to see if my voice could keep up with it all.
The final installment will be chapter three, sometime Saturday. It will slow things down again and introduce one more important character. Following that, I’ll create an ACX account, draw up a recording and editing schedule, and get to submitting chapters for their review; another process I am going to have to learn.
In the meantime, it has been a month since I have written a story, even just playing with ideas. “Goddess’ Crusade” is nominally due at the end of this year and besides a vague vision of one scene in my head, the other 60k+ words won’t write themselves.
So here’s chapter two; longer, I know. I’m still playing with Audacity’s settings and getting older about how to use it. Cheers!
