I feel like I just got home from my recent trip to LA, but something came up and I’m heading back over.
While I don’t like to travel, I do it when I see the value in it and I’m certain there will be value to my pending trip.
I’m going (this time) for a 2-day demo class for audiobooks with Pat Fraley, Scott Brick and Renee Raudman. All three are masters and I’m genuinely looking forward to meeting them and learning from them. At the end of the weekend, I’ll have recorded 3 pieces for an audiobook demo I will display on the front page of this site, along with my other demos.
I’ve been agonizing over what 3 pieces to choose for the demo, and as of this blog post, I’ve only decided on 1 for certain – an excerpt from The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav. If you’re interested in quantum mechanics, but don’t know much about it (and are perhaps a bit afraid of physics), I would recommend this book. Gary Zukav has a lovely way of explaining this topic for non-masters (like me).
So now I’m off to the bookstore to browse around for my other choices. I’m tempted to stay “safe” and pick things that I’m comfy with, but this is important and I’d like to show at least a range of abilities… which is why I chose a piece on physics – it sounds brainy, and so now I can juxtapose that with something from the children’s section or a light piece of fiction.
I’ll add to the post when I’ve made my final choices.
According to the leaders of the class, I’ll only be doing 3 of the 4 choices, so I’ll update again when I come back.
