Fandom IS Universal

When I speak at schools, libraries, conventions and so on, I feel it is important to talk about my multi-ethnic upbringing. Coming from two drastically different cultures and being a geek on top of that wasn’t always the easiest thing as a kid or a fan. And seeing myself represented in fandoms was often difficult…

One of Few Audiobook Update #2

Lots of friends, namely much more seasoned producers, are quick to note how ambitious my approach to the One of Few audiobook was/is. Casting voice actors in these roles rather than have just one narrator multiplies the work to an obscene amount. I shot out the sides with warnings like this: Even included a cheat…

One of Few Audiobook UPDATE!

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram or like my FB page, you may have noticed MONTHS back that I was posting pics of actors recording in my home booth. What were they working on? Well, I guess I wasn’t all that sneaky about it. They were doing the audio for my science fiction novel. That’s right! One…

REEL TALK

I’ve been doing demo reels for about as long as I’ve been doing VO. In the last decade, I have learned a lot both as a studio professional and a voice-over artist. REAL TALK — I reject more demo requests than I accept. The reason why is simple and, for the purpose of this post, I’m…

One of Few is out!

Today is the day, y’all! One of Few is OFFICIALLY released! HUGE THANKS to everyone involved! And I do mean everyone: editors, testers, readers, friends, family, dogs, etc. From the back cover (for those that might need a refresher): Doing what few can. How fortunate I am. Locators are rare. Only eleven people can access chambers…

We’re less than a week away from One of Few’s release! I can’t believe it, guys. This is so exciting… and TERRIFYING. But mostly exciting. Thanks to all those that have pre-ordered their Kindle copy! If you’d like to pre-order, do so here. The paperback will be available on Tuesday May 23rd through Amazon. And…

One of Few – Sneak Peek #2

I had the opportunity to talk with Doug Engler and Darcy Abramson of Anime Zing Radio about some of my voiceover work (Interviews with Monster Girls, Girls und Panzer der Film, Fairy Tail, The Thunderbird series, etc) as well as One Of Few. The interview can be heard here (I’ll pop in around the 33…

One of Few – Sneak Peek #1

The book is less than a month away from going live!!! If you’ve seen the Amazon page for the Print version of One of Few, it shows that it was released on March 12th—it wasn’t. Quickest/easiest way to get that fixed was to simply make the book “unavailable.” One of Few OFFICIALLY comes out on…

TAKE COVER!

You’d think working at the same company with someone would allow you the opportunity to get to know one another before having them on your podcast. You’d THINK that, but, alas, no. The production department at FUNimation and their art department don’t get to interact much outside the break room and occasionally running into one…

“The hell, Doty? YOU WROTE A BOOK?”

I’ve written a few things over the years: short stories, poems (even won an award in high school [plus a $50 gift card to Circuit City if that tells you how long ago]), stage plays, screenplays, adaptive scripts, WAY TOO MANY tweets/posts and so on. However, when it came to attempting to write a book,…
