Review: The Juggling Author by Jim Heskett

My Reviews

Great addition to your writers tool box!


This book is exactly what it claims to be and not to be. It’s about juggling writing and everything else. There are a lot of examples, suggestions, details, but they are upfront that you are the biggest part of the equation. It takes hard work on your part, and this is not a get rich quick kind of book.

The author is a real example of how to make it work with a busy life. He has a family, full time job, and is a writer.

Chapters are short but full of information. I’m glad I could get the ebook version through kindle unlimited for free because it makes finding the referenced suggestions easier. Just click the link inside the book while listening and you are brought straight to the book on amazon. For me it is an easy way to grab the title and put it into a search at my library’s online catalog. I also found many of the titles on Scribd.

The narrator, John Alan Martinson Jr. has a great voice that I loved listening to, and would make a good narrator for a romance book. Sadly, despite have a long list of titles on Audible, he has no romances listed. Perhaps he has a pen name that he uses for other genres. I can only hope!

I give this 5 stars because it delivers on what it claims and it is a title that will be going into my writers tool box for sure!

Review: The Juggling Author by Jim Heskett

The Author’s Guide to AudioBook Creation by Richard Rieman

This is a very informative book on creating audiobooks. The author has lots of tips from personal experience as well as some from fellow authors and mentors. The idea of creating your own audiobook can be confusing. There is so much more than simply picking out a narrator and recording it. Mr. Rieman gave me a lot to think about and a good idea for where to start.

 

I totally agree that writing for audio is a good plan. As a super listener of audiobook fiction, some titles do fall a little short sometimes when it comes to the audio. It reads fine in print, but in audio, its either distracting or overwhelming.

 

This is a good how-to title for the author that is thinking about, or on the fence about, making an audio version of their book.
