Check Out my Interview with Audiobook Narrator and Coach Sean Pratt

Hello everyone! I know I haven’t written in awhile. Things have generally been good with one really bad day thrown in for good measure. I am writing now specifically to plug the most recent episode of Talking Audiobooks.


I don’t always write a post on my blog plugging each new episode but that’s due more to laziness than anything else. I really should talk about each one because to only do them every now and then makes it seem as though I am playing favorites. That’s just not true, I enjoy each episode for one reason or another and hope that everyone listens to all of them, even though I know that’s not really realistic.

Going Solo

Hello, everyone. It has been awhile since I’ve written anything of substance on my blog. I suppose it could be argued that such a thing has never happened but I’ll just leave that one alone. I have been very busy lately. So busy in fact that I am only now mentioning that my debut as the solo host of Talking Audiobooks aired on June 2. You can access that episode here and a book review I did here.

I am going to talk about the podcast and some of the things we’re doing in this post. However, I don’t want my blog to become nothing more than an advertisement for my podcast. The fact I want my blog to be more puts me in a bit of a spot.

Audible Unveils May 2017 ‘2 for 1’ sale

I’ve been working on getting things ready to take over as the host of the Talking Audiobooks podcast (see my previous post if you don’t know what I’m talking about). Most of what I have been doing has been related to social media but I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly I want to do on the show.
One question that I am still debating is how best to talk about sales that companies such as Audible have from time to time. This is an interesting question because unlike other things I might want to discuss on the show, these are more time sensative. A sale may last a few days and so it wouldn’t be helpful to anyone if I did an audio segment talking about a sale but it wasn’t published until the sale was over.
I have some ideas on how to handle this problem but I’m still trying certain things. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. For now though, and more than likely as things continue, I am still going to write about sales on this blog. Which finally brings me to the point of today’s post. Audible.com is having a 2 for 1 sale for members.

Update

I know it has been awhile since I have written. I’m not even going to apologize for it because this is my blog and I can write or not write as it suits my desires. I wish that I desired to write more but the fact is that I haven’t really desired to write at all and thus the blog has gone quiet.


As I write this, I am honestly not in the best spirits. As loyal readers of my blog know, April 13 marked the one year anniversary of the passing of my father. The anniversary and time surrounding it has hit me pretty hard and started to hit me in the middle of March. Looking back, I am so thankful that I was able to travel with dad to the last of his chemo therapy appointments in late February/March of 2016. I wouldn’t trade those car rides for anything.

Happenings

Hello everyone. I’m taking a bracket break to update my blog for the first time in way too long. My reasons for not having written sooner are many but can best be summed up as laziness. At least I’m honest, right?
Let us see if I can’t catch you all up on the “happenings” in my life. This shouldn’t take too long but probably will take longer than it should.
