Another Lucky Season

Football Season is here!

And with it comes the Colts first loss :(. At least it was at the hand of Peyton Manning. And despite how lack luster it looked, they stayed true to their form of giving every fan a heart attack in making it real close towards the end. Being a Colts fan the past 3 years requires quite the nervous system.

At any rate, I am excited. This team may be beat and battered as usual, but they’ll still throw punches with the best of them.

Any Progress is Progress

Just an update for the millions of fans  out there. I have been slowly chipping away at the sequel to Stopping the Fat Guy. So don’t worry. It will Come out- eventually.

This one has taken longer for many reasons. One of the big ones being my desire for quality. While working on Tricky Turkey Tango ( yes, that’s its title!) I’ve become more obsessive about the finished product.

This can be a bad thing, but as long as I can learn to let go of a project as a writer and say at some point it’s as good as it’s going to get, it’ll be very beneficial.

With that said, I’m making some edits slash upgrades to Stopping the Fat Guy.  Something I can do whenever I want as an independent author. If you  want to check out the revised version let me know and I’ll hook you up.

In the mean time, fans, hang in there and writers, keep it going; the world needs your art.

Book Tracks

I recently stumbled upon a site, can’t really remember how, maybe Reddit, called Book Tracks. It’s an interesting new way to look at reading. One that, as an artist, I’ve thought much about myself. Thought I would imagine getting it to be just right could be very challenging.

 Book Tracks, for those of you who don’t know, is way to add audio to books. This audio can range from music to simple sounds; such as the creaking of a door or the thumping of boas against the docks. It’s a way to add extra depth to a novel. An extra sense to really pull you in. 

Though i’m all for this, as almost everyone walks around with a Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in their pockets, I could see it causing a ripple in throughout the writing/reading community. Will a Book Track book be considered a book? Novels are works of words and the readers imagination. A novel doesn’t have sounds.

Book Tracks bridges the gap between reading and listening. How will a Book Track book be categorized? Is half way to a radio show isn’t it? Can it be considered a novel among your typical everyday non audio version? Or will it end up being flagged like a picture book. 

We’ll have to wait and see. But I for one am exciting to finally see technology used. It’s part of what makes advancement great.
