Last week, I had the great pleasure to fly to Toronto, OT Canada, and spend 2 days or 12 hours in an ADR Studio at Technicolor, recording the audio version of AMAZING GRACIE. Which will be out soon on Amazon and Audible.
The amazing actress and my dear friend, Sara Botsford, did the reading and the recording. Sara’s extraordinary talent not only brought the written words to life giving each character a unique voice, but made the incredible story more meaning. Although I wrote my grandmother's story, hearing it spoken so beautifully gave the book a life of its own. At times, it was very emotional for me, as it bought my grandmother back to life as well, revitalizing the amazing times and memories I had with Gracie, my Grandma. It was a thrill that I will never forget, and I will be eternally grateful to Sara for giving up so much of her time in the studio.
I'd like to also thank, Marian Botsford Fraser, Sara's sister, also a published author, who assisted us in getting the dialogue and character voices flawless and consistent throughout the reading.
We are still in editing mode, so it may be a few months until it launches, but as soon as it comes out, I'll let you all know. And, even if you have already read the printed versions, I can truly say, that you will find the audio version even more incredible and more captivating.
My journey into writing AMAZING GRACIE was very much like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together to finally reveal the hidden truth. A stunning portrait of a young girl who survives the shocking destruction of her poor-yet-loving family, and rises to become a woman of strength, courage, tenacity.
