Random Friday

Totally random randomness… saw the announcement on Patreon? Change of schedule and new tier? Good! Now you get a preview of Sunday’s post. One of a kind, never to be duplicate again. If you’ve never met me, you’re going to hear my voice. And I’m someone who hates the sound of her own voice. I hate reading my stories aloud, etc.

So I did this little experiment with Voice Recorder and Video Editor on Netbook, since when I went looking for Windows Movie Maker I saw it was discontinued and to use the alternatives on Windows 10 (which is what’s on 1-year-old writing Netbook). So here’s my first attempt at making a video with those two thingies and no music.

Silvery Earth Kids character presentation.

I know, I suck. My admiration goes to the narrators of audiobooks! 🙂 Yesterday was another non-writing afternoon, since I had to check the second audiobook before approving it… and I have made some character sheets for Silvery Earth Kids too! 🙂

And since my post skills on Patreon are still limited (I seem to be allowed one image in the text-only posts and no image in the others), I shall post the character sheet here as well as on DeviantART… Here are our little guys and their friends and foes! 🙂

On a slightly different topic, one of my cover artists, Federica Manfredi, has designed a couple of T-shirts. If you’re looking for ideas, check Alien Puppies (for kids) and Pee-Rex (for men?! Well, adults) on Moteefe (I’m sure you can change the language set on Italian, you’re smart people, you!).

Busy weekend with Romics happening in town, so Sunday I’ll go to the comicon and Saturday I’ve got to make those paperbacks, argh! Hopefully the second antho is already on pre-order as ebook by now… Have a great weekend! 🙂

  1. Actually, while I have to admit you’re far better at writing than narrating, I’ve heard worse audio samples. In fact, I’ve had worse sent in as audition samples. At least you were good enough that you could potentially improve enough to make a reasonable narrator, if you put in the time and effort to try and achieve such a goal. In other words: no, it wasn’t great. But it wasn’t terribly bad either.


    • Aw, thank you! 🙂 the Italian version was worse because I translated on the spot, so there was more stamnering… and I kept moving my sheet, so lots of extraneous noises! 😆
      Anyhow, still trying to figure out how to offer a visually-impaired version of Silvery Earth Kids… will figure it out, evenually! 🙂


  2. I appreciate you trying. 🙂 *hugs*
