I’m in the midst of narration and production of the latest science fiction novel by Michael Miller, Second Earth, M-104. This is the third in a series of books about an alien who wishes to destroy earth and the scientists who are battling to keep earth alive. This battle takes a lot of technology – some of it “other worldly”. Michael takes the time to share some of this technology with us and how he thinks it might work.
I share a sample from the book as well as the author’s comments about writing in this genre and the research which goes into the writing of this exciting book.
If you listened last week, you know that we are going to feature some older podcasts as “re-casts” for the next four weeks while I move and re-build my studio in a new home. This week’s re-cast features my friend and author, Becky Wooley. As a minister’s wife and church secretary, she has the inside scoop on how churches run. And she has taken that information and some great imagination to write the clerical crime novel, Non-Prophet Murders. Grit along with three pastors find themselves the target of a killer. Can Grit and his girlfriend, Grace, find the killer before he or she strikes again! Full of humor, satire, and some scary moments, Non-Prophet Murders keeps you guessing “who-dun-it.” Listen and find out how she does it!
I interview author Michael Miller in this week’s podcast. Michael is the author of The Sixth Lobe and Born to Matter, books we looked at on podcasts #51 & #52. Michael’s writing is detailed and exciting, with the action jumping off the page into your imagination. His characters are varied and interesting. And his subject matter is unique. Imagine a boy and, later, a man with the ability to read your subconscious thoughts. Or a space traveler assumed to be dead, returning to earth through a “fold” in space. Or that same traveler bringing aliens with him. How about more Biblical documents like the Dead Sea Scrolls. Such is the imagination of Michael Miller. Join me for a fascinating interview!

This week, we continue sampling the story of Danny Wilson. This is the second of Michael Miller’s books featuring this remarkable young man. In Born to Matter, Danny returns to the United States to settle old scores. In the process, he makes both new enemies and new friends. He settles his scores and makes a mark on lives that show he really was Born to Matter!
My 50th podcast features the first author who entrusted me with a book for production, Regina Puckett. I interviewed her to talk about her about her award winning books, writing, her future projects, and the Warren Family. The Warren Family?
The Warren Family is a series of five books revolving around various members of the same family. I produced the first two of the series with a third under contract now. Regina and I talk about these characters and the way I’ve drawn these characters vocally.
I’ve produced first two of the four novels in the Warren Family Series from award-winning author Regina Puckett. This week, we take a look at those two novels, Concealed in My Heart and Songs That I Whisper.
Join me as we meet Charity Warren, the ingenue picked from her college drama stage to appear in a major motion picture. Concealed in My Heart is a story of friendship turned to a life-time love.
Then we are introduced to Suzette Warren, the artist commissioned to paint a portrait of the up-and-coming country star, Seth Black. Since neither are interested in a relationship, they find attraction to each other. What will happen next?
For the opening of any new year, looking back and looking forward in assessment is always interesting. Looking back, we see the accomplishments and failures of the year. And we look forward in wonderful expectation of what the new year will hold. So, it is with Narration by George. I look back at the titles that are available. I look forward to new distribution channels and new authors. And I start with an interview with author Donna Patton. Take a listen!
This week, I interviewed Anne Baxter Campbell and Trish Horner about the latest Narration by George Audio Book release, The Roman’s Quest. Anne is the author of this very fine novel. Trish was the narrator for the female characters and the female point-of-view narratives. We talked about the novel and about the faith in God that is evident throughout and central to the book. You’ll hear examples of everything mentioned. There is so much to hear that this is only the first part of the interview. Next week, for part two, Anne interviews Trish and me.
This is the last of the review of the 41 audio books I have produced since Narration by George has started business. This week, you’ll hear some poetry, a fantasy, two science fiction excerpts, a western, and a non-fiction book. Quite a spread of genre’s to enjoy this time.
We continue the celebration of my privilege to lend my voice to the work of some amazing authors. We’re looking at 41 books in 41 days. In this program, we look at four novels in the romance/life category. Three of these books are set in the same town. And we take a look at an unusual telling of the Christmas story.
