Welcome to the
Audiobook section of Sci Fi – Arizona.
ago, many of my books were available on Audible.com. However, my agent grew
concerned about some of the language in their user agreement and we withdrew
from the arrangement.
I have always
wanted to produce my own audiobooks. So, for 20 years, I experimented with
computer voices. None of them sounded natural enough to pursue. However, with
the advent of AI, I have discovered a voice that actually sounds human. As an
experiment, I have recorded the three books of the Antares Series and am
offering them for sale to the public.
While this AI
voice is good, it is still a computer voice. It cannot emote the way some of
the most talented voice readers do (at a cost of up to $250 per hour). These novels are output in a pleasant male voice that just reads the text. As is the
case with printed books, any emoting taking place will be inside your head.
If you are a
long-haul truck driver, or face a boring daily commute, or just like to take your
fiction in through your ears, you may find this technology interesting.
To hear a sample of the audiobook voice, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or press the button.
Your audiobook(s) will be shipped by the same process we use for our paperback novels. The memory stick containing the audio book chapters will be sealed into a small envelope (both shown to the right or below). These will then be stapled to your order receipt to ensure it won't become separated in transit. This full assembly will then be placed in a standard-size (#10) heavy duty envelope and mailed to you via First Class Mail.
Note: The size of the audio files are such that it is impractical to download them over the Internet.
