We take a listen to some excerpts from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet. I play for you some excerpts from the first section of the book. You’ll hear how Sherlock and Watson meet, how Sherlock makes the deductions he does, how he processes the crime scene, and his solution for this heinous crime. This is all from my production of this book that is now available at a special price. I invite you to take a listen!
This week, we break from our look at audio books to delve into some spiritual areas. I recently spent a weekend dealing with the deaths of two parents in two families close to me. Putting these two events so close together stirred my soul deeply. When I got back to my home church the following weekend, I heard a lesson from John 11 on Lazarus. What should our perspective be on a story of resurrection? I share this lesson with you on this podcast. (This podcast is a bit longer than usual. I hope you can hang with me!)
We take a deeper look at the book which is currently in production here, Avatars of Web-Surfer. I talk about some of the stories that are a part of the book and how they lend themselves to the theme of the book. Plus you’ll hear an extended excerpt from the first Episode in the book. Join me as we dive into some interesting science fiction with spiritual overtones.
This week, I’m back with a look at the Four Spooky Offerings of 2016 for Halloween. We look at Slimmer, Do You Want to Play a Game?, Payback, and Crying Through Plastic Eyes; all short stories written by Regina Puckett. I play you samples from two of the books and share a little of the plot lines. But you have to listen to the books to find the endings!
Then it’s time to look forward to the next offering coming from Narration by George: Avatars of Web-Surfer. This is a collaborative effort of four authors to bring a great Science Fiction idea to life. I’ve got an audio sample of an early version of the book for you to sample. And we talk about the Virtual Release Party for this new book. Exciting stuff!
Hey Everyone. Sorry for the lack of a podcast this week. However, I am suffering from two maladies.
My Comcast connection has slowed to a crawl – almost to a stand-still – and doesn’t look as if it will recover before the day is out. It’s a little hard to upload something that may take hours. Thank you Comcast!
My lack of inspiration for this week. For some reason, I just don’t have a great idea for sharing with you. Rather than bore you, pick up on a podcast you haven’t listened to this week.
Thanks for your patience. I’ll see you next week with the Narration by George Podcast – the podcast on audiobooks, spiritual ideas, and other items of interest.
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.
We’ve been looking at tales where the setting is an “other worldly” one. But, what if our main character is “other worldly” and set in our modern day world. We take a look at such a character today known as “Knighthawke”. Author Jerry Minchew created Knighthawkeas the main character for the book bearing his name and the sequel, Knighthawke: Vanishing Shadows. Michael is an ordinary young man with ordinary aspirations who is caught in an unbelievable set of events which make him over into an “other-worldly” character. Take a listen to some samples in today’s podcast!
Our look into tales of other worlds – even just altered earths – continues today with an in-depth look at The Destined. This is a tale of evil powers which arise every 700 years or so and threaten earth. To counter this threat, others are imbued with gifts to fight this evil and set things right again. This story tells the story of a High School Teacher and a few teens who have been imbued with this power. The question is, will they know how to use it to save the planet from total annihilation. It’s a such a fast moving action-adventure-other worldly tale that it’s hard to stop listening.
