I’ve just created a home audio booth, and I know lots of indie authors out there want to do the same but have no idea where to start. So I thought I’d share the process and show you how to build your own DIY audio booth.
Why Build a Home Audio Booth?
Most writers by now know that they need to jump on the audio book bandwagon ASAP. The audiobook industry is booming. That’s swell, but what about those of us who can’t afford to spend $6000 paying a professional narrator to narrate, edit and master an audiobook for you? Well, we can do it ourselves. I’m seeing more and more indie authors taking the proverbial bull by the horns and DIY’ing audiobooks. And it’s not like we haven’t seen this kind of behavior before. Look what happened with video proliferation and the rise of YouTube. iPhone home movies and the growth of DIY authenticity on YouTube exploded. I think it’s happening with audio too.
Here’s my quick tips on building a home studio. [Read more…] about How to Build a DIY Audio Booth
It’s always a delight to be asked to speak at a conference. It’s something I love doing and something I’d love to do more of in the future.

Productivity and me go way back. We’re like siblings: we both wana get shit done and somewhere deep down (like REALLY deep) we love each other. But mostly, we kick seven shades of shit out of each other while stealing one another’s greatest posessions (time) and taddle tailing about who got what done on the ‘to do’ list. We need to be more productive because right now, we’re a mess.
We both know it, though neither of us will admit it. It might possibly, probably be the reason I have 22,000 words of a novel on ‘How to Be Productive’ and it’s also – ironically – the reason I’ve neither finished it, nor published it.
The self-edit can be daunting. But it doesn’t need to be. Just like drafting, it’s another process, another part of the journey to publication. And one that is vitally important if you want to get the best product you can on the market.
This is a short post, one to recommend my friend the author and writing teacher, Joan Dempsey has launched an online master class on self-editing, which is open now and immediately available as soon as you enroll.
