Captain, We're Phasing! 

I'm alright admitting that I like sci-fi. Science fiction writing and films can be wildly entertaining. Have you noticed that a lot of the things they discuss in sci-fi end up becoming reality? And if you take a quick look into the science behind the types of things they're doing, they're usually not too terribly far off the mark on the things that are already here and happening.

Just like in the test kitchen, audio accidents can have surprising implications. I can't tell you how many times I've cringed, thrown my hands in the

Should I really spend the money to turn my book into an audiobook?

Be honest with yourself, you've spent a lot of 

  • Time
  • Energy
  • MONEY
  • Brain Cells
  • and MORE

writing your master piece. The writing, the editing, the re-writing, the cover art, the formatting, the publishing....What a headache! And now people want you go through a process that's just as in depth as the last three main pieces to get an audio only version?! It's maddening!

     Or is it?...
