The Narrator of the Audio Book – Echoes of a Storm

I thought you might like to know a bit more about the narrator of the Audio Book.  So I asked Cari to send me a quick pen pic of herself.  Please see below.

 

Hello All!

My name is Cari Scholtens and I live in Michigan, USA.  I am a schoolteacher and basketball/track coach by day and by night, when the VO signal shows upon the sky, I read audiobooks.

I got into voice work when I won a contest through the gaming company Bioware for their AAA title Mass Effect: Andromeda.  I play several roles in the game and got a trip to Los Angeles and an IMDB credit for it.  It also got me a little recognition in the voice-over community.  Since then, I have landed several roles including voice-over for Grisha MacLaggin in the upcoming fanfilm “Voldemort: Origins of the Heir” and several audiobooks including “Echoes of a Storm”.

I am eager for you all to be able to hear the work Alan and I have put together on this project and I certainly hope I do his work justice!  Thank you all for your support of “Echoes of a Storm!”

Cari

The Narrator

For an audio book to work, you need three things:

a. A good story
b. Someone to bring that story to life
c. The ability to work together

I am extermely luckly to have Cari Scholten narrate the book,and bring the story and character to life.

So, that you can learn a little more about Cari and her work etc, i’ve asked her to provide me a couple of paragarphs that I can post here.

As i have said before, writing is a very anti social hobby. You disappear for days at a time, to bash away at a keyboard in the vain hope that someone will like what you have written 🙂

Its only after the writing process ends does it become a more interactive process. In my case, sending it to the wonderful Lisa W (hello Lisa) for proof reading and suggestions.

Asking the talented Saskia Schnell to design the cover.

Shoving copies under friends to give feedback.

That is where writing becomes extremely inter active and where some of the best future story lines come from.

However, i still had control over what went on and in the books.

That totally changes when you have to hand over your precious work to someone you hardly know and let them interperate it in their own way.

And that will be the subject of my next post. The differnce between working with people on book and an Audio Book.

Audio Book of Echoes of a Storm

I am very pleased to say that the Audio Book version of Echoes of  Storm will be released shortly. As I have received the following email from ACX

Hi Alan

  • Your audiobook will go through both ACX and Audible quality assurance (QA) rounds.
  • Once it passes, we will let you know and begin distributing it on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The whole process usually takes up to 10-14 business days, as long as there are no problems.
  • If your audiobook does not pass QA for any reason, you and Cari Scholtens will be contacted right away with instructions for how to remedy this.

Exciting times 🙂

Scott, Alan: The “Y” Front Standoff (The Y-Front Chronicles) (2014)

Once again Alan Scott serves us a plateful of humour with a dash of serious. OMG, that talk-show. “Women Who Bitch With Other Women” remind me of some very popular talk-shows that definitely do not have ASD’s in mind. “Next season’s must-have fashion accessory!” indeed.

Once again, the idiotic government wants to kill their once-upon-a-time tool. This is one of the worst thing about governments around the world. For heavens sake, let SCoT-1 get his well-deserved revenge instead of wasting unnecessary lives trying to stop an unstoppable person – especially with Terminal Flatulence on his side.

I laughed. Out loud. Definitely recommended.

Falklands 1991

Falklands 1991

With the poppy appeal in full flow and armistice day fast approaching. It always reminds me of one night in the Falkland Islands in 1991.

I was a young man of 22 serving in the RAF, and was currently posted 8’000 miles from home in the Falkland Islands. I was living in a four man room, with 2 other RAF and a Paratrooper.

This one night, there was about 10 odd of us in the room drinking and watching Black adder goes forth on video. Although we were not suppose to have alcohol in the room , being caterers we had managed to get a few cans of beer in, and had a huge tea urn full of Vodka and Orange.

I should point out at this stage that we had just finished a five day exercise; we had been practising our roles in the event of the Falklands were invaded whist we were there.

So, if you can image it 10 odd men, 8000 miles from home, aged between 18 and 24 from the RAF, Army, Navy and the Para’s, in a 4 man room drinking, laughing, just of a 5 day exercise and watching Blackadder goes forth.

Then the laughter stopped and the mood changed as the final scene from Blackadder was played out.

For we all realised that we were far away from home, and what if what we had just been practicing became reality, then…

Please buy a Poppy this week.

Thank you

Alan
