Behind the Scenes Author Reading!

lfisler : April 23, 2018 10:44 am : AMO Art Chat

Well–I did it!  I posted my first author reading over on Patreon!  As it says in the rewards for being a patron, I would do author readings, have behind the scenes teasers and cover reveals too!  You don’t know how daunting I found this task.

These author readings are easy for me. I know I can chat like crazy during podcasts, but reading is another matter. I know you all thought this would be easy for me. Wrong–it goes back to my childhood.  A teacher told me I was a terrible reader.  That voice is still stuck in my head. I know I will get better with practice, but this experience has given me a whole new appreciation of Gabrielle de Cuir and Stefan Rudnicki.  I guess the best part is that you’ll be able to see me grow with confidence and practice!

Just to give you an idea of how long this one author reading took to get it to you, I’ll post some facts and figures.  Reading the first short story on Nicole took about 3 hours.  Editing the audio took about 5 hours. So, eight hours total to get you the finished product.  So, to do this at the rate professionals charge would have cost me close to $3200.

I’m dedicating this week to Nicole. On Wednesday, I plan to upload a little audio/video on Patreon that talks more about her story.  I may even repost some of the diary entries that are buried here in this blog somewhere to remind us more of her background. On Friday, I think I’ll release a deleted scene from Cloaked–no promises but maybe.

    I want to thank you for your interviews, I found your podcasts last summer, and have followed you ever since.

    There is a quietness and respectfulness in your interview style which makes it very easy to concentrate and absorb the information in the interview.

    I am hoping you will have followup interviews with many of the people, I just listened to Quang Ho, he and David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Jeff Watts, CW Mundy, Kevin McPhearson…very good. The way David, Sherrie, Jeff and Quang were able to impart information in such a short time, was amazing.

    Keep up the good work.
    Thank you again.

      Dear Marsha,
      Thank you so much for you wonderful comments and for following the show. I appreciate your compliments very much. I’m also very honored that these wonderful master artists have been so giving and willing to do the show. Their generosity and artists like you who listen keep us doing what we’re doing. In this internet age it is hard to know how folks are feeling about what you are doing–except for the numbers of listeners that keep returning to listen, so I’m very happy to hear that you are finding them so useful. We’ve got some great shows scheduled in the coming months and we do plan to follow up with a number of artists to have them on the show again.

      It truly is my pleasure and honor to do the show.
      Thank you again.

  2. I recently found your wonderful art Chat’s channel. You had mentioned an interview with Sherry Mcgraw and David Leffel regarding edges and although I have looked, I have been unable to find this particular interview. I was wondering if it took place and if not, do you plan on maybe conducting this interview in the future? Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much Linda! I really enjoy listening to your show, they are so informative!

    Thank you so much for inviting us as guests on your podcast today Linda. What a treat it was to talk with you and to work with Cherie and Jen to bring the discussion to your listeners. We are honored and thrilled that already, several people have reached out to tell us they are planning to create mentoring groups of their own. Mission accomplished!
