AUDIOBOOK JOURNEY
   
I've been thinking about turning my novel, THE HOPE STORE, into an audio book recorded in my own voice. Not because I think I'll get rich (though I'm open to that!), but because as I sample my first Audible book, I can see how immersive audio books can be.  I am reading/listening to the new novel ON EARTH WE'RE BRIEFLY GORGEOUS by Ocean Vuong. He's a gay asian poet that is now writing prose and so am I. Vuong's narration is very poetic and hypnotic, though I wish he had more variety in pacing, tone and emphasis.  I think the book works better as a memoir than as a novel since there is not a forward-driving story structure. Once I listen to the audio book, I turn to the physical book to make notes on the pages.

I purchased a cool microphone -- a Meteor Mic, a sound pop shield and headphones.
I'm learning to use Audacity to record tracks and edit.
