I’m currently in production of the audio version of my first book “Be Your Own Change Guru: The Ultimate Women’s Guide For Thriving At Midlife.” I’ve never done it before so first things first – it’s time for me to walk before I run. While some people get narrators for their books, this is something I’ve really wanted to do myself. I think because of all the podcasts I’ve done – nearly 100 by now – plus my weekly vlogs, I have a little grasp of what it takes to work my voice and read to keep things interesting. But of course, there are new skill sets. Ninety-nine percent of the time in my podcasts I’m going unscripted and off the top of my head, so narrating is a whole other story. So that’s where this week and YOU comes in. I thought practicing on my podcast could be a perfect way to give both of us an idea of what I’m going to do. You’ll see that I intend to combine reading as well as continue the off-the-cuff style of my podcasts so that it will seem as though I’m whispering the book straight into your ear.
If you haven’t read the book and are curious to see the printed version, check out a free sample here. And let me know what you think! Will you be interested in hearing audio versions of my books? I sure hope so, but I’d love your feedback and any ideas of things I can do to make it different or shake up the usual audio format are totally welcome. And of course, thanks, as always for listening.
