Adventures in Narration: Poison in the Pudding

Pickups (fixing mistakes) for Poison in the Pudding are finished! Now on to the editing and mastering. This new novella and accompanying audiobook will be available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes in October!

I tried a couple of different things for this holiday season piece by Shéa Macleod, including a slight pose to embody a particular character, and a height shift for another. During the VO classes I took, the instructors indicated that even slight shifts like these result in a different sound in the voice.  It will be interesting to see how the voices turn out because while they sound VERY distinctive in the microphone monitor…ehhhhhh…not so much…in the actual recording.

Some of that might be the fact that I learned “mastering” from tutorials at ACX. My novice mastering is evening out my voice, removing all those subtle differences, and frankly, I’m sure it could be done better.

Still, I’m sure listeners will enjoy the sweet, short whodunnit. Viola is a great character, and I’m in love with both her escapades and how supportive her community is. Well, not the law enforcement community, but there are always toes in the way of a powerful woman…
