What can I say...Chris and I as much like to write (we love to write actually) as talk about our writing, talk our writing, or just talk in general. This is why we are gearing up a brand new collaboration with the Chrome Orange Music And Media Company to release some of our writing in audiobook form as much as give forth an exclusive with Chrome Orange to present our Write Dirty Words smut-writing courses via audiobook.
Being able to read our words, lifting the intent off the page and through our lips to entertain (mainly) and instruct (maybe a little) is a real thrill for loquacious goofballs like us. In fact, I am about a third of the way done reading my book Dating While Intexticated, originally published by Jean Marie Stine's Sizzler Editions for Chrome Orange.
Boy am I ever enjoying the process.
I try very hard to make with the good writing and all. I do what I can to get my points across with some clever word choice or twisty fun grammar usage. If I come to a sentence that runs a little long, I often exploit what would usually be thought of as a big grammar 'no-no' by trying to have fun attacking my word usage. But speaking these words out loud I have found a whole new way to explore what I have written as much as to inject even more humor, and I hope a solid wry commentary, to my written words.
I can only see this audio stuff working to the betterment of what I do and how I do it, not to mention helping me to deliver a really great product, something a listener might love to listen to again and again. From my background of live music performance, where I was always the 'frontman' (how could my ego allow for me to be anything else?!) I think I learned how to engage an audience (for quite some time and still even now, lots of my non-adult work has been in the world of children's music/book- making, and you won't find a tougher time anywhere than standing in front of 3-year-old's and trying to keep them entertained!) I bring my background of performance in making the audiobook the best it can be and in the future with Chris attached to a few of these books, we will be an unbeatable pair, I feel.
So keep your ears peeled and look here often, we will keep you abreast (or two...tee hee) of what's coming in what we are saying.
