Recently my friend Roger on LinkedIn asked me if I had gone to a recording studio to get it done, and inquired about the steps in how I brought it to life. Here's what I shared back, but also with the inclusion of the SECRET NOTES, which just wouldn't fit in the LinkedIn response.
Roger. I have a home studio for podcasting, that I can use for vocal recording. It's something I enjoy doing when I have the downtime.
Here are My 12 Steps for making an Audiobook:
I want to share why I wrote the book IMAGINE -- why the message is important to me.
In my early days as a child I struggled with what others thought of me -- what I thought of me. You see, when I was younger, I was the kid with the buck teeth. The blond headed toehead, who may have smiled on the outside, but -- can I be honest? I wasn't smiling about myself on the inside. I struggled.
The reality is that there are people all around us who are struggling too. They silently struggle with thoughts about themselves, about what they are perceiving from others, and that just isn't healthy thinking.
People are hurting. Maybe lonely. They might even be questioning their worth, and the value they bring to the table.
Their imagination might be taking them to some pretty dark places. They need hope. A light. A path.
That's the message of the book. You see, when I was 13 something finally shifted for me. It's when I first realized the value of imagination.
