Anguish Podcast Episode 2

ANGUISH-2400x2400-Audible-Cover-2013-03-10Hello all,

This week, we have episode 2. The episode is the entire chapter 3 of my book, Anguish.

In this chapter, Lily goes to the bachelorette dinner party. There, she finds her old college friends, Amy, Erika, and Kelly. Lily is nervous because she hasn’t seen them for quite a longtime.

She questions whether she even really wants to go or not. What will she find when she gets there? What secrets will be shared? What has become of her friends?

Anguish Podcast Episode 1

ANGUISH-2400x2400-Audible-Cover-2013-03-10I have finally done it! Time to start podcasting my third book, Anguish. It’s been very interesting going back and relearning how to do a podcast. It’s been, what over a year?

 

After a bit of trial and error, I think I got it right.

 

Every week I will post a few chapters from Anguish for you to enjoy for free. If you feel like getting the whole audiobook, you can go to Audible.com. If you would prefer to read the whole book in one setting, you can go to Amazon.

 

Enjoy.

Anguish by Madeline Fresco now available for Kindle on Amazon.com

My third book, Anguish is now available at Amazon!

Here is the bio I wrote:

Lily just can’t get it together. In her 30’s, single and lonely, she dreads going to a bachelorette dinner party with her girlfriends from college. While they are leading fulfilling lives, Lily is still stuck on her college sweetheart, Devon, “the boy who got away.” Things change when — through mystical events — Lily travels back in time to the week before college graduation. Guided by her best friend Rose, Lily has that one week to get Devon to declare his love for her so she can have a second chance at happiness.

If you liked “Peggy Sue Got Married” and “13 Going on 30,” then you will like Anguish.

I hope you guys enjoy this book

Yup! It’s been a very busy last week. I’ve been trying to get all my books in Amazon so that I can also get them started in Audible. I was able to enter Anguish into Audible last night, but there were some issues they reported to me today. Some minor stuff that I need to fix. Again, because of the back pain, I had to record it for the first time here, in the apartment, instead of at the studio. That caused some microphone issues. They say there is some background noise. I asked the person who helps me with Logic Express at times, and he said that there is a filter he might be able to put on to fix it. Otherwise, that’s something like 60 hours worth of work down the tubes. Ack! I’ll refrain from freaking out until we try this filter.

I’ll let you know how it goes!

One more chapter until I finish the audio for Anguish

One more chapter left to record!

 

I’m so excited that I will be done with the audio for my third book ANGUISH.

 

It is such an accomplishment with this back pain. I know it’s not a lot, but I will feel like I actually did something this year. A lot of times with back pain, you feel like you aren’t doing anything with your life. That’s what is great about this. It took me forever, but I did it. By next week, I should be able to put it in the Audible store.

 

Oh, shoot! I still need a book cover. I have one in mind, although, it’s not very good. I really have scoured through countless stock photos trying to find something that matches the tone of my book. I don’t really want a real photograph of a person, because then it locks the readers mind into what the character looks like. I want them to dream up the image on their own. I tell you who I pictured as the main character, my roommate in college my freshman year. She was so beautiful. Unless I found a picture of her on the internet, it just wouldn’t do her justice. Plus, I’m not sure how she would feel about having her image on my book cover! We haven’t talked since my freshman year, so that would be pretty weird!

 

If you have any ideas of where to get images from please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it!

Anguish: More recording done

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 5.33.27 PM

http://www.muttville.org to get Pudding (the name of my next dog)

Okay, so the hubby was gonna help me put The Choice into Amazon last night, however, he was also flying out to see his parents in Florida today at 4:30a.m.! Wow! I could not believe that he chose a 6:00a.m. flight.

 

Needless to say, between all the laundry that needed to be done, the packing, the running to the grocery store to help me with my shopping for the week, it left little time for us to put my book into the store. So, it will have to wait until he comes back. I can honestly say though, the poor man had little time to himself yesterday.

 

So he will be gone for a little over a week. That means that I will have plenty of time to work on the audio recording of Anguish. I already got to Chapter 21 out of 25. That means if I do a chapter every few days, I will be done by the time he gets back.

 

The back had HOPEFULLY a minor setback last night. The stretching and such has been going better, so I ordered a bike. Needless to say, it didn’t go as planned. I hoping that this has little impact on my ability to get the recording done. I might just have to record one day, then edit the next, instead of trying to get it all done in one day. Either way, it should be fine.

 

I have the very nice lady who gives me massages coming over tonight to help ease my pain and my roaming mind.

 

If you want to know more about my back I try and do weekly posts on my blog, www.ihatemyback.wordpress.com. Check it out.

News on future Madeline Fresco books

So, it’s been a long time. The reason for the absence was the fact, still is the fact, my back is not better. The book work has stopped for a while because it was, and is,  just too painful to try and concentrate on new material. Editing proved difficult as well, because it’s hard to look at a hard copy of something while laying down in bed.

However, now I’m getting back into the swing of things. My plan is to release the second book, The Choice, and the third book, Anguish, all in the next few months. I won’t be going with the same publisher again because they were not very responsive.

The Choice is completely done. Cover and all. So, really, all I need to do is get it submitted to a new publisher. The second book, Anguish, I still need to do a cover for. I do think  I have found the cover I want to go with. So honestly, I think that is basically done as well.

The other thing that will be popping up in the next few months is that I will start recording the audio for Anguish. Despite The Choice being half way completed, I did that at a more professional studio, and I think the sound quality would be compromised because my back is not healthy enough to return to that location. Therefore, I will be making a make-shift studio in my closet and give that a go. I’m a little worried about San Francisco street noise. You may have heard some of that street noise when I recorded my into and outro to my episodes. It should be improved with a better microphone and the location of the recording being a room away from the street. But we shall see.

Lastly, Crossed the Line should be available any day on Audible. I tried submitting it once, but I submitted it with three of my chapters to one of theirs. I didn’t think it would matter, as the whole book just winds up being downloaded in its entirety to your computer anyway, but Audible doesn’t want it done that way, so I have to go through and reconfigure the whole thing. It’s only annoying because of my back. It’s not that much work — maybe a few hours, but when you have a hurt back, every moment counts.

So there it is. A bunch of new things happening. Oh, and one more thing. I did start another blog. It’s called I Hate My Back. I’ve been posting there every Wednesday instead. I just thought it might be nice to start a blog that centralizes a lot of the things that happen to someone who has back pain. I would love to read, even now, what another person went through. Now, hopefully, I will help someone else who goes through this. They can go to my site for articles on the spine, on annular tears, on what my PT was like.

Okie-dokie. Check back soon to see how all this new stuff turns out!
