This article really explains in detail about why narrators are hesitant to take on royalty share projects, and why the bulk of #audiobook marketing is best left to authors. http://www.voiceofderrick.com/rs_marketing/
So, I want to talk about audiobook contracts and marketing. Specifically, royalty share contracts and the marketing of audiobooks by narrators. It’s a surprisingly touchy topic. And one of th…

After a rate discussion on a forum recently, I found there was an interesting divide between the ACX narrators who were more likely to work for free, and those like myself, who come from voice over. All I can say is please don't work for free and then call yourself a professional. It's just not right.

My latest #audiobook just came out today. It's a novella. I won't be narrating the full series, because it has a male protagonist, but it was a lot of fun to do. Check it out on #Audible  http://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Gray-Man-Rising-Audiobook/B01DOENMEO/ref=a_search_c4_2_1_srTtl?qid=1459620416&sr=2-1

Dude. Alter your consciousness without drugs...and with videogames. 
A whopping 96.6% of "hard-core" gamers have experienced altered visual, auditory, and body perceptions as a result of playing games.

The overall tree cutting experience went well enough.... I guess. This is the first time i have hired such a company, so I wouldn't know. However their timeliness is awful. They were over two hours late for the initial job, which meant our plans for later in the evening fell through. It also meant it was dark by the time they got done with the trees, so we didn't get the rounds placed in a convenient location, but instead sitting in our grass and bushes. Then when it came time to pay, they wanted a cheque because nobody could seem to work the ipad for a credit card payment. When we tried to get ahold of someone over the phone to make payment, rather than taking payment over the phone or saying they will send a bill, they said someone would come over the next morning at 10AM. We were set to go out shortly after but we said OK. By 10.30, no one had shown up. We called and was told they were going to be here any minute, yet it still took another 10 minutes before someone finally showed up. They were 40 minutes late, just for a credit card payment. And yet again, our plans fell through because of their lack of timeliness. Any other company would just send a bill or take payment over the phone. I'm sorry, but this is just not good customer service and I honestly can't recommend them.

Chik and his team have been great to deal with from start to finish. He easily handled our unusual employment situation, and kept up regular communication throughout the seven month short sale process. As complicated as our buying experience was, with the bank waiting until the last minute to approve the sale, we appreciated everything Chik did to meet a tight closing date. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Fantastic company. Our battery decided to pack it in while we were parked at PCC Natural Market. We called Edmonds Auto Parts because they were nearest, figuring we'd have to leg it down there and then carry a new battery back. Instead, they drove to us with a new battery and a box of assorted tools, without charging us anything in advance, including core charge. To top it off, when we needed a particular size tool to get the old battery out, we called them to ask if they had any that we could buy, and they came down again, and brought us more tools to borrow. Can't beat that kind of service!
