It's been a very long slog, but we did it: The Artful Flying Audiobook is finally available ONLINE!
As with any Artful process, this was a difficult challenge to meet. Initially, I thought: How hard could it be to read a 332-page book (that you wrote every word of) into a microphone? How hard could it...be?
The answer to that is: "You have no idea. It's much harder that you can imagine." But as with any Artful Process, we worked through all the challenges, learned the things along the way that we had no idea we needed to learn, including how to compose original music for the transitions, intros and outros, making sound effects sound like your intended object, and of course, how to insert the finished file into the Great Cloud of Internet Knowledge so that you can find it, and hear it with your own ears.
Yes, it was a slog. But it's done, and I'm really proud of it. My producer, who read the book years ago, and listened to the dozens of audiotracks countless times as he tweaked and edited, says the book's words took on many different meanings when read by the author than when he read it. It really "feels" different to me, these many years after I wrote the words. I hope you'll download a copy to see that difference -- even if you've already read the hardcover book.
So...Enjoy! Let me know what you think of the new work, and how it impacts your Artful life.
