Once we got the basics established, character voices, etc., Jay’s been busy finishing up a previous project. He got that out of the way this weekend, and now ready to go on Truck Stop. Yesterday he surprised me by sending the narrated Opening and Closing Credits… surprised because those weren’t anything I’d even been aware of! Part of those things that I didn’t know I didn’t know. So that was pretty cool and again, I just love his narrator voice!
In addition, he recorded the Dedication, Acknowledgements and the “For My Readers” segment with my contact info. We’ve sorted out where they’ll go, with Dedication and For My Readers after the opening credits and before the book starts, and Acknowledgements at the end of the book before Closing Credits.
Jay sends me these files on the ACX website where I can listen to them, but I can also download them, and I do that and put them into their own playlist on iTunes so I can go in and find them easily, and organize them and so forth.
So now we have the character voices figured out, we have our front and end matter narrated, our Opening and Closing Credits narrated. The next step… he starts narrating the manuscript!
