Since the release of Adventures with Kazmir the Flying Camel, our audiobook, we’ve received so many wonderful comments from readers, listeners and the press. Now, we’re daring to dream bigger!
I grew up on Bugs Bunny; his clever wit, his diabolical mind, and well, he’s just a plain stinker. But oddly enough, I learned that Alburquerque is to the left, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was a real book, and duck season follows rabbit season.
There is no doubt that Steve Blum is an amazing voice talent. His credits scroll forever and are so many that I can’t even pick the top 10 to list here.
If you ever want to create an audiobook, I would suggest a close and personal relationship with a producer. Luckily for me, I just happened to have married one. Michael Woodrum is an amazing human being and an extremely talented music producer.
In my opinion, Danny Elfman changed the way we listen to movies. I think Beetle Juice was my first conscious realization of the impact a score can have on the mood of a film. “In Tim’s (Burton) films, more than most, if you miss the tone, you don’t get the film,” says Elfman.
The 4th Sky and element is Earth. Our resources come from the earth. It provides life and protects us. Somebody IS the 4th Sky. His whole body, uh, face, well, you'll have to hear the chapter to fully understand.
Another of the 5 elements is Water. And as we all know, water is important for balance in the kind life. In the 3rd Sky, water surrounds us as the listener.
Friday was the party at the Braille Institute in Los Angeles in celebration of the end of their 6 week Summer Reading Program.
Adventures with Kazmir the Flying Camel was added to the permanent library collection at the Braille Institute. How cool is that? Wait, it gets better.
At the beginning of this journey, the beginning of this blog, I’ve shared with you that Tim Burton is my choice as director for my movie about Kazmir. He’s not my only choice as there are some amazing talents out there, but he is my first choice.
I kicked off my Dream It + Do It : Author Tour Wednesday in Oceanside at Garrison Elementary. What a great school. Their focus is on the visual and performing arts, so it was really easy to talk to them about the creation of Kazmir and the audiobook.
My focus is to share my story Adventures with Kazmir the Flying Camel with as many people as possible. Like a million other people, I thought it would be really fun to get on Oprah’s book list.
