on Anne R. Allen:
When Love and Need Become One
So here comes a heaping helping of what’s good for my soul. I’ve always told tales. I just had trouble, the first fifty years or so, believing that people would pay me to tell them.
But I had a revelation recently, the kind that comes with advancing age and wisdom, with an insight that I deserve work that makes me happy, and above all, with getting laid off. And for the better part of the past three years, this is what I do. Up early, look for auditions, record and edit the words of other fine authors and try to bring them to the ear.
Bottom Line: I could be richer, but I don’t think I could be happier.
I believe audiobooks are the most exciting aspect of your writing that you might not be paying attention to. I’ll try to touch briefly on some lessons I learned recently, in the hopes of informing you– OK, tempting—to consider this alternative if you haven’t already. Authors fall into two categories, those who have done audiobooks and those who need to get cracking.
