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.

So here is my attempt. Voice Over (or V.O.) is everything…
