It's now July and we are coming out of lockdown in the UK. I hope you have not suffered during the COVID outbreak. For me its been business as usual and I've worked full time throughout the lockdown, which has been difficult at times due to the additional burden of home schooling and trying to ration food and toilet roll, at the beginning.
A couple of years ago I invested in my StudioBricks VO edition sound booth and that has meant that I have been able to work from my professional home studio in the full knowledge that the quality of my audio is top notch!
So far this year I have competed ten titles, which has meant I've been recording back to back audiobooks, ranging from non fiction, Leadership academic books, to Pixie crime adventures in New Zealand. So the variety has been great!
One of the things I love most about recording audiobooks is the range and variety of titles I record, often books that I wouldn't ordinarily pluck from a bookshelf for my own reading. I am currently recording another 'Leadership" strategy non fiction title and, not for the first time, I'm reminded why I'm not leading a global blue chip company! lol. I'm perfectly happy leading myself and my faithful hound who works with my.
One move I have made during lockdown is that I have ditched almost all Social Media. It's a move that has been on my mind for the last few years. It's such a shame, but because 'Identity politics' is such a virus right now and shows no signs of stalling, I have found Facebook and certainly Twitter to be a highly toxic environment and absolutely not conducive to networking and growing business relationships.
I am now using Instagram as my sole social media platform and I hope to see you there. gabriellevoices_audiobooks
It was such a shame that APAC was cancelled this year as a result of COVID but hopefully I will be off to NYC next year instead.
I am looking forward to the second half of 2020 to be as busy and fruitful as the first half, albeit less socially restricted and I really hope to keep in contact with you via updates from my website and Instagram.
If you would like to work with me then please contact me and let's talk.
