Podcasting

Good progress on the podcast preparation, had a shaky start, Humphrey narrated the 1st. chapter of the wrong book and was well into the 2nd. when I discovered it,

Anyway, we’re back on track now and nearly ready to upload the 1st. chapter of “Layliana”. In this podcast we will also introduce the magical characters to you and an idea of what the whole series is about.

We’re very excited about the whole project and look forward to your feedback.

Keep watching for an update and a release date.

Here is a teaser of some of the music from Layliana.

Ditheramentation

Should have gone out on the bike yesterday.. didn’t.. Today it’s raining again, damn!

Nothing for it but to take to the studio and start doing the voice overs for our impending podcast (my sister and I) where we will introduce our hero character “Todalie” and his friends.

I’m excited about this, we have completed 4 audio dramas but before we publish in book and audiobook form we have decided to podcast them in episodes over the next year so keep your eyes and ears open and I’ll let you know how to subscribe (please) when the 1st. Episode is ready.

They will be narrated by our good friend Humphrey Smellyngton Smythe in his own inimitable way!

Until then,

Cheers.

A preview

Very shortly I will be launching a “Fundit” campaign to raise money in order to publish the first in a series of original Pictorial Audio Fairytale Books comprising original music, words and graphic illustrations by myself, my sister Susan and her husband Vitya.

The first book is called “Todalie” and here is a sample of the music for your listening pleasure.

More later.

The great need.

When creativity is within, there is no escape. It will and must come out.

Layliana’s tale

This is the first piece of a new project telling the moving story of the Swan “Layliana” the year before she met Todalie on Lough Key and started a new life.

Swan and babies

Head down, no messing!

Time to get serious now about our Fairytale “Todalie”. The music is finished, the book is finished (bar editing) the Images are amazing. I have so many ideas in my head for making an animation of this beautiful story.
Now we need someone to come on board and make this a reality, I’m not putting this project out so it can disappear without people having the chance to enjoy it in all its glory, so come on, be brave, climb on and take a shot at making something fantastic be fantastic! No language barrier here, this story will travel anywhere. Imagination is a wonderful thing 🙂
