    I would like to know more about the audio book sessions. How did you find a studio? How much did it cost you? Did you have any qualms about reading it yourself or did you think about hiring a voice actor instead? These are questions I have not been able to find answers to.
    Congratulations again on what has to be a major personal accomplishment.

      Hi Jim.
      I happen to know someone right here in my home town who does this. We used his recording studio, he had the software and knew how to proceed. It took a couple of months of sessions, I think, before we were finished.
      As far as doing it myself, people tell me I have a great voice for it and they love my readings when I present at events. One group told me they could listen to me read the whole book. Nice, eh?
      Email me and I can help you privately with the rest of your questions. elainecougler (at) rogers (dot) com

    Elaine, the book looks great and I love your enthusiasm for the spine! Great you’re planning for all three to be lined up on readers’ book shelves! Very interesting to read your experience about reading your book aloud for recording – sage advice indeed. I always did this for my short stories but haven’t bothered with my book will definitely try this now. Best of luck with your book and look forward to the launch.
