Cookies: Sluts of the Snack World

Are the voices in your head listening to you? Oh yes. Yes, they are listening to you. They know what you’re saying. Sometimes, they talk back. Sometimes, they sing along. Sometimes, they write children’s book with hidden messages placed in plain sight with a neon bow because, hey, a little style never hurt anyone. (This, of course, ignores the Great Style Massacre of 1973.)
Welcome to “Fun To Grow On” – the new children’s book series for adults. These books are not for little children or big babies. Each story is filled with blood and violence, sex and swearing – Seriously. This series is for adults. These are not parodies of children’s books but original stories for adults who still have a lot to learn… as do we all.
“Fun To Grow On” presents the very first book in the series… Cookies: Sluts of the Snack World!

Recording Indian Paintbrush…

Today, I finished recording my new audiobook, indian paintbrush. This wraps up two weeks of sitting in a small room, getting into one of several characters, and speaking, yelling, screaming, etc.
Voice acting is no different from live acting. You get the same emotions, the same responses. The only difference, in my case, is that it is me – alone – and I’m the director, the producer, the engineer, and the actor.
It gets a little weird.
Fortunately, I’ve done enough of these to have a good idea of when I need to do more than one take or when something doesn’t sound quite right. As the writer, too, I can change text if the others involved – all of whom live in my head – see any problem with it.
And, so it was when today I came to the conclusion of the book and I found myself getting caught up in the emotions of it. The actor reading the book was brought to tears, over and over, and the director had to stop him to do it again and, because they’re both me, I ended up sitting here in tears stopping and going back, stopping and going back. I had to turn off the tears and turn on the tears – off and on – off and on.
Over the years, I’ve gone from acting with other people to writing alone to, now, acting alone. I’ve found that the skill sets are really kind of interchangeable. But, more than that, I can’t help but think how cool it’s going to be when people begin to buy the audiobook. Because it’s more than just a book I wrote. The reason I love my audiobooks so much is because it is my opportunity to take all of my talents and just go crazy.
The audiobook for indian paintbrush should be out sometime in October. You can find the ebook on Kindle and paperback coming soon.
