New Year, New books
So, everyone at this time of year talks resolutions – and I’m sort of no exception. However, mine is to keep building Abbeysound Audio as a brand for audiobook production.

Audiobooks are not cheating
So here’s a thought… Often, students can be put off studying English because they don’t enjoy reading.

For years, students … Continue reading Audiobooks are not cheating
It’s been a few weeks..
… so thought I better get up to speed. The audiobook side is really moving forwards, with both the major books I’m producing heading into their latter stages.

It first occurred … Continue reading When is a voiceover not a voiceover….

Hired as a music specialist, I’ve not actually taught much music but have taught lots … Continue reading It’s not all stories….

Have a listen and see what you think and, if you’d be so kind, please share it. Just … Continue reading Listen To Me…
Like any new small business owner, you always worry if there’ll be enough work to do or enough customers to make it work. And whilst Abbeysound isn’t new (34 years old last December), this extra focus in audiobooks as AbbeySound Audio is a new direction. But I needn’t have worried. My week has consisted of … Continue reading Busy week!
New year, new stories, new directions
So, here we are in 2019. Some will say ‘New year? It’s same old, same old’ but not me. New challenges and new productions to make – all very exciting. I start work on a new production for an English author based in Germany next week plus I’ve pre-productions to finish for a writer in … Continue reading New year, new stories, new directions
