Real-Time Starcommander by Tracy Gregory is now a great new audiobook.
It’s all about Evan, who was desperate to hit the big time playing Star Commander, the world’s most popular real-time strategy game. While Evan works hard to get the pros to notice him, it’s very different eyes that are captivated by Evan’s progress. The Kirran Hegemony is at war. Outclassed at every step, the aliens turn to the most warlike race they know – humanity! Abducted from Earth, Evan finds himself fighting for his life, using his skills to command Hegemony forces in desperate battle. Now, helped by fellow humans, Evan must prove victory can be grasped from the jaws of impossible odds.

Starstruck

08Feb21

It sounded like a deal that was out of this world!

I’ve been producing audiobooks since May last year. One of the ways I get paid is with ‘royalty share’ deals. These are audiobooks where I share the royalties from sales worldwide with the rights holder of the book. The trick is to only produce books that sell really well.

I auditioned for an audiobook on astronomy through the Audio Content Exchange (ACX) online which is owned by Audible. A few days later, I received an offer to narrate and produce the audiobook which was written by a world famous astronomer.

The paperback, hardback and Kindle versions of the book are New York Times bestsellers, so I had a really good chance of making a lot of money with the audiobook.

The first problem I had was in chapter one. The manuscript showed a labeled photograph of the moon. I had no idea how to turn that into something that could only be heard, so I sent a message to the rights holder and asked them how they wanted me to proceed. The print version of the book was published by Cambridge University Press but according to ACX, the rights holder was simply listed as “Larry”. “Larry” didn’t reply so I found the world famous astronomer’s website online and messaged him through that.

He had no idea that his book was being turned into an audiobook and doubted it was even possible. It was designed as a book you could take with you at night when you went stargazing, so it was full of photographs and diagrams showing you which way to point your telescope. He did some checking and emailed me back. It turned out that Cambridge University Press had no plans to turn his book into an audiobook and they’d never heard of “Larry”.

“Larry” had simply downloaded the Kindle version of the book and uploaded it to ACX. He was hoping I would narrate and produce it so he could sell it as a downloadable audiobook through Audible, Amazon and itunes and split the royalties with me. Luckily, I caught this scam early and reported “Larry” to ACX.

So Larry, you know where you can stick your offer to produce your stolen astronomy book…

Right up Uranus!

I’m so sad to hear the news that Gerry Marsden has passed away. I’ve sung along to You’ll Never Walk Alone at Anfied hundreds of times and was lucky enough to chat to him on BBC Radio Merseyside in 2013.

He came into the studio and I recorded a chat with him for playback on my show the following day. It was a great interview, he was fabulous! When he left the studio, I checked the computer and to my horror, I realised the file was missing! I’d obviously clicked the wrong thing and it hadn’t saved. I actually heard the music from the shower scene in Psycho in my head!

This was a MASSIVE mistake. I didn’t just lose an interview, I lost an interview with a Merseyside legend and I did it at RADIO MERSEYSIDE!

As luck would have it, Gerry was still in the building somewhere, doing interviews on other radio stations around the country “down the line”. I found him and told him what had happened. He said, “Arr Ay Graham! You’re joking aren’t you?” I sheepishly asked him if we could do the interview again and he was really good about it. We did the re-record and he was even better second time around.

Thanks for everything Gerry, You’ll Never Walk Alone!
