What did we do in 2016? What’s coming for 2017? That’s the subject this week as we look back and look forward. I play samples from some of 2016’s audio book releases. And I summarize our schedule for the coming year. It’s a full one! Join me for the review and the preview.
Just in time for the spooky fall month of October, I have four tales of terror produced for author Regina Puckett and available on audible.com. We review those four tales in this podcast. Check out why you’ll never look at a diet the same in Slimmer. Party games turn deadly in Do You Want to Play a Game? Jeremy has a debt he owes in Payback. And Destiny is desperately looking for her daughter in Crying Through Plastic Eyes. Listen for the samples. Each book is available at Audible.com and in the iTunes Store. (Look below for links to each book!) And listen during October for give-aways for each book!
Uh-oh! This podcast was taken over by a pirate. Captain Cleytus Pitcher IV captured the microphone and tied me up so that I couldn’t speak to you this week. He still shared the new stuff that’s coming to Narration by George. So, that’s good. There are two short horror tales by Regina Puckett – Do You Want to Play a Game? (just released today) and Payback. And there is the new Science Fiction epic, Second Earth M-104 by Michael Miller. (The Captain just doesn’t get Sci-Fi!) In the end, I was able to get the police involved and now he’s spending the night in jail. But, he’s still on the look-out for his treasure!
In today’s podcast, we’re looking forward. If you’ve checked my Coming Attractions page, you’ll see that there are a number of books listed there. Just what am I going to be working on in the coming months? I seek to answer that question in this podcast with samples from three of the books aswell as some comments about others. There are romance stories, horror stories, a couple of sci-fi novels, and a steam punk offering. Join me as we take a look at what will be available to you for download in the coming months.
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.
Last week, we started looking at a pair of books by Michael Miller. These books – The Sixth Lobe and Born to Matter – tell the story of Danny Wilson and his unusual ability to read people’s sub-conscious thoughts. We met Danny as a boy last week. This week, we see him all grown up and tackling the real world. I play samples from the second book,Born to Matter. Join me for a fun ride.
We continue sampling from Books That Go Together; stories and characters that are sooo good that they cannot be told in one novel. Today, we start looking at the two book story of Danny Wilson in The Sixth Lobe and Born to Matter by Michael Miller.
In The Sixth Lobe we meet Danny and discover his condition – an extra lobe in his brain that allows him to read other people’s subconscious thoughts. This is a problem for young Danny; an opportunity for the adult Danny; and it creates interest from several parties as his abilities are discovered. How does he handle this situation?
This week, we look at two books which have yet to be released. But, I give you a sneak peek at them with fully-produced samples for listening.
I venture into the horror genre with a short story from Regina Puckett, Slimmer. This book is complete and will be available in the next week or so on audible.com and the iTunes store.
You’ll also hear a sample from the third book in a Michael Miller science fiction trilogy, Second Earth, M-104. The first two books are available now from audible.com. This book closes the trilogy with a visit to an earth like planet. Come take a listen to the preparation for this journey.
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!
