Looking at that list, I thought, Huh, okay — all I need is a good introduction to producing your own audiobook.
Went to find it.
Well, I spoke with some friends at the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association, where the unofficial motto is, If you can’t find the book you want, write it yourself. Asked folks if they thought that I should write a guide to audiobook production.
So I think I am. I’m thinking of calling it The Author’s Voice: A Writers Guide to Recording and Producing Audiobooks.
I’m excited to be able to announce that Stillpoint has been signed to produce two new audiobooks for novelist Uvi Poznarsky. First up is A Favorite Son, Poznarsky’s retelling of the Genesis story of Jacob and Esav. Told through the eyes of Jacob — both as an old man and as a boy — the novella looks at the emotional challenges that come with Jacob’s assumption of Esav’s birthright, taking his brother’s place as the favorite son.
The other title — a very appropriate one for Valentine’s Day — is Poznarsky’s contemporary novel of a love that won’t be denied, Apart from Love. I’ll be producing this title, and sharing the narration duties with the wonderfully talented Heather Jane Hogan.
Stillpoint Digital Press announces the publication of its first murder mystery, Death in a Fair Place by W. L. Taylor.
Set on the idyllic campus of a glossy prep school in Northern California, this fast-moving detective novel involves intrigue, scandal, and, of course, murder most foul — right on school grounds. When the head of the prestigious Pemberley Oaks School is found dead in the school’s memorial redwood grove, the list of suspects includes just about everyone with a connection to the school — faculty, staff, parents, and teachers. It is up to Detective Bill Felkin to dig past the privileged, sophisticated veneer and discover the truth.
Taylor, who worked in independent schools for many years, says about completing his first novel, “Being a fan of murder mysteries, the idea came to me to write a detective story that takes place on a private school campus. After I came up with the germ of the idea for the book seven years ago, I paid attention to the old adage — write about what you know — and that provided me with a wealth of material.”
