Actually I recorded flash fictions and short stories from the Tumblr Writing Community for a while, then a friend of mine from comedy improv circles approached me to voice her sci fi novel. Only then did we find out about ACX… I put up a profile and now I am preparing auditions for other novelists.
So excited! My first full length recording of a novel. Did about 30 character voices too! I am a pro now. :-)
I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been working on a big audiobook… Hope you like this. Today’s readings are from my book FACE IT, an art/word collaboration between myself and Sarasota pen&ink artist Anita Wexler. This first section is all sonnets, but they have been read in singsongy character voices rather than in dull collegiate tones…
I am sorting out the upcoming FACE IT show: how the illustrations will be projections, what the tone of the delivery will be, where the DJ and improvisers will fit in, etc. I’m also hoping to have an actress read some of the 60 pieces…
I’d appreciate some feedback on the various artistic choices I made here, if you have a minute, my friends. - RussilPlayed 9 times.
Wordier Than Thou is our pioneering Bay Area fiction-reading scene, based in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. Yeah, it’s the shizzle. Even if we recently had to decamp from our snug black box theater at L Train (which was sold to some nincompoop) for the shelter of Genaro’s coffeehouse, a block away. Trading in a noisy bar clientele next door for a noisy espresso machine behind the venue counter… should be interesting!
Stoked! I’m a-rolling up my sleeves and readying the studio to undertake my first full length audiobook. I’ll be pulling Chinese and Peruvian accents out my ass for Bett Correa’s Engineer Your Perfect Child. By September it should be sailing out onto the ocean of Audible.com…
The book cover I designed for Tom’s latest thriller novel, Homicidal Hustlers.
Yay! I finally have a decent video of me performing! This is me reading fiction at L Train. The piece is David Sautter’s detective story “People Just Disappear”, and this took place during the first Fiction, Live! evening which I also emceed. Videography by Jeff Handy.
I’ve been asked to do a full length nonfiction audiobook.
I’ve been given a job designing a novel’s book cover.
I’ve got two Dinner Murder Mystery Improv gigs coming up soon.
My DAG improv troupe is running its summer show, Road Trip, every Friday until the end of July.
I am doing one more final edit on my own novel The Kundalini Code before it becomes a serialized audiobook on podiobooks.com. I believe I know who will voice the female roles now.
I hardly have had time to think about my Flash Fiction, Live! shows, although I have a couple of younguns going for the bait…
