I'm 5 episodes into the story but it just hasn't caught my interest. The audio effects are very annoying. The regular narration is fine and well done, but the two other effects are quite grating. One sounds like the reader is standing in a big tunnel, the other quite tinny ...
Only listened to the first three podcasts so far and I can relate to the story more than some of the fantasy books I have listened to from Podio books. I suppose that I used to be a teacher and that it is from a British writer makes it more ...
For anyone interested, the next one is written and being recorded at the moment. The editing bit is a long process, but I hope to have the first few episodes out in the next few months! Thanks for the compliment!
I absolutly loved the story and you have a most beautiful reading voice. Please write another as you obviously have a talent but failing that you must do more audio readings as you definately have the voice for it. Well done on both writing and oratory production. I listened to ...
An engaging read! Complex and mildly disturbing. The characters slow slip out of the mainstream lend credibility to what would seem like unlikely reactions and circumstances. I enjoyed that you refrained from deconstructing every action and reaction, leaving the reader things to ponder. Thanks for presenting your work in this ...
Congratulations!!
I *loved* this book! THe characters were *so* well fleshed-out that they stay in my mind even now, that I'm finished the book. The plot was so excellent, that it quickly became my favourite podiobook and the fiest one I'd listen to everyday. I had to know what happened next! ...
wow, thanks for the compliment. This story is ALL about the inner conflict! :) and in the episodes to come, it only gets more intense. I hope you enjoy the rest of the story.
You have a really beautiful voice. If this is your first podiobook, then you most certainly have the "showman" gene. But I have wondered for awhile about how a more introspective inner conflict story would translate to audio... as opposed to a slam dunk action /scfi/horror/fantasy/ thriller. I'm not sure, ...
I've read that about a thousand times and not spotted that. thanks! will sort it as soon as i can. :)
