The Interview

Ever feel curious about what goes into creating an audiobook? Maybe you have considered producing one at some point, but weren’t sure what goes in to it?

This is an interview with three people who worked on the Howls From the Scene of the Crime anthology audiobook (on kickstarter now). We talk about casting, recording, giving good performances, and a lot more!

The Kickstarter!

There is a kickstarter that is funding this anthology and it’s accompanying audiobook. Also, this anthology will contain my first published story! Please consider supporting it at:

Even if you don't back the project, if you could at least come leave a comment, it would make a bigger difference than you think!
