Audio Book Conference for monkeys

Finally, after years of wanting to go, I'm winging my way to the Big Apple for APAC.  I'll be on the narrator's track, and hopefully learn startlingly new insights that will help my audio book career!

I was all excited when Scott Brick announced his contest for new narrators, but it turns out it's limited to brand spanking newbies, or someone who has not been paid for audiobook work yet.  Ah well...I'm bringing along some copies of my demo-in-progress and hopefully I can get some kind soul to listen to it and give me some tips.

Stay tuned for the wrap-up and my thoughts!

I love olmstead

I love the book I'm reading right now: A Trail of Heart's Blood Wherever We Go by Robert Olmstead.  I've read one other of his, Coal Black Horse, that was amazing as well.  I'll post a review here when I'm done, but for now, an appropriate quote.  Someone's pet monkey has just died by jumping into fresh-poured concrete:
Cody looks up at Stan.

"I'm sorry about your monkey," he says.

"Looked to me like it was his own fault," Stan says.  "Sometimes I wondered who was chained to who."

Of WordPress themes and monkeys

So one of the challanges in installing a blog on your site is getting it to look like the rest of your site.  This is really frustrating. :(

One option is to create a completely custom template using the look of my actual site, but that requires a bit more technical knowledge, time, and effort than I really have.  So I decided to just use a nice theme that someone else has already created.  As you can see...it doesn't look much like my main site.  I don't like this on other sites...when you click on a blog link and are suddenly taken to completely different looking section...but I don't have much choice at present.  As time goes on I can hopefully integrate the two looks somewhat, but for now this is it!

The First Post - Hello VO World!

So I decided to join the ranks of voice-over bloggers out there and contribute to the conversation.  Will this end up being another failed blog with only one week of posts?  I hope not, but time will tell!
