Good morning and welcome to today's update! I'm pleased to announce the release, on August 1st, of War of Secrets, details of which, appear below.
As regular readers of these pages will know, for the last several weeks, I've been putting together a 'home studio' so that I can record books and drama to professional standards from home, as the lockdown here in the UK means that many independent professional studios are still being 'lightly' used, if at all. The situation I currently find myself in, with regard to maintaining a viable career, suggests to me, that recording from home, which has long been the case in the USA, will now become the 'new norm' here too.
Before the home studio was fully up and running, I did manage to rig up a temporary work space in which I recorded a few auditions and some voice-overs. Over the last couple of weeks in the new studio, I've recorded a full cast and fully interactive audio drama, two short audio books and War of Secrets, a 'standard' length book, which, as you can imagine, is very pleasing. Here's what it's all about:
War of Secrets
A Space Marine Conquests novel
the Dark Angels as they battle trauma-scarred T'au, Lieutenant Farren
and his Primaris Marines discover their allies have many secrets they'll
do anything to conceal....
story: Lieutenant Xedro Farren is a Primaris Marine, stronger and more
adept than even the Space Marines his brotherhood is sent to fight
alongside. As the Dark Angels and the Primaris Marines fight a
trauma-scarred force of T’au hellbent on destroying their former allies,
the true quarry becomes clear - the shadowy instigator of a psychic
curse that could plunge a string of Imperial planets into madness.
worlds burn in the fires of battle, an unthinkable pact is struck, with
the Primaris Marines peeling back layer after layer of deceit to find
the appalling truth. Can Farren hope to emerge from this web of lies
without losing his honour - or come to that, his life?
Written by Phil Kelly, audio book Produced by Matthew Renshaw & Narrated by John Banks
Length: 9 hours - 48 minutes

Over the next few weeks and months, as mentioned in previous posts here, the 'home studio' and it's human occupant, are about to embark on a very busy period of recording, involving two new audio book series and the continuation of a third, along with, hopefully, a few welcome 'extras' thrown into the mix.
Like any project I've ever undertaken, the prospect is both thrilling and terrifying in equal measure. So far, I haven't put a foot into the perfect and unbroken snow of anticipation; as soon as I utter the first syllable of text, the 'perfection' will be lost and the process of compromise will begin.
'Twas ever thus!
...all for now; more just as soon as it happens!
