Contest time!

Starting now and running until January 31, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST, every review of the free serialized audio production of my novel LILITH'S LOVE hosted at Podiobooks.com will be entered into a raffle to give away a FREE signed, inscribed paperback of LILITH'S LOVE!

All reviews posted at Podiobooks.com as a comment will be automatically entered. If you want to earn an extra raffle entry, you may post reviews elsewhere (iTunes, Amazon, Smashwords, etc.) but you will need to leave a comment here on this post to let me know you've done so!

Once the contest has ended, I will announce here on the blog the name of the reviewer who has won the book. That user will have to contact me if they wish to receive their book and where I can ship it to.

Good luck, and enjoy!

 

The podiobook is complete!

So at long last, the podcast audio adaptation of LILITH'S LOVE is complete! Is it perfect? No, of course not. I may go back and remaster some parts of it. I am always of the mind that a novel, and now any production based on one, is never finished.

I would like to thank Evo Terra for encouraging me to produce a podcast version, giving it a home on Podiobooks.com, as well as providing one of the many voices in the cast.

So what's next, besides an eventual remastered edition? Well, naturally there's the sequels. Yes, two. LILITH'S LIGHT and LILITH'S PEACE. Neither is complete. I dare say these projects alone will keep me busy for a while to come.

But that's not enough; I am also writing prequels. Prequels featuring characters that appear in the sequels but NOT in LILITH'S LOVE. Yes. I'm insane. Certifiable. And you wouldn't have me any other way.

In the meantime, if you enjoyed the podcast version and feel like donating, please do visit Podiobooks.com and leave the donation there. You'll be supporting them AND my part of the donation will go directly to the American Cancer Society.

Finally, most of you know, but let me reiterate for those that don't, Michelle and I host the Out Of The Coffin podcast all about vampires. Free time now means back to more regular episodes there. Huzzah!

LILITH'S LOVE Episode #14 – August 17, 2010

This is the final episode of LILITH’S LOVE, featuring the Monologue and Epilogue from the novel.

Donovan updates his diary after everything he and his friends have survived.

My most heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave voice to characters in this production...
Karl Long as Christian Armstrong
Michelle Celley as Lilith Thompson
Dani Cutler as Anna Foster
Jack Mangan as Michael Barrett
Jack Hosley as Jake
CJ Feierabend as Mary Jane Hill
Dan Feierabend as The Master
Robert Gallagher as Malcolm
Chris Lester as Joe the Bartender
Paul Maki as Rob Stevens
J. Daniel Sawyer as the Border Guard
TD-0013 as the Patrolman
Evo Terra as George Shaeffer
Gilane Jones as New Age Girl
Jose Carradero as Lord Jonathan
Robin Hudson as Lady Katia
Nuchtchas as Waitress

Without the kind volunteering of time by those folks, this production would never have happened.

My appreciation and thanks go out to the members of The Narrow Way, who gave me permission so long ago to use their song "Deranged" in the novel and in this production. The opening theme music is from their song "Freedom of Movement". Though the band has scattered and moved on, their music lives on, I still love it, and am happy to be able to share some of it with you all here.

All other music loops and sound effects were provided courtesy of The Free Sound Project, which can be found at www.FreeSound.org.

Finally, thank you for listening and having the patience in too many cases to wait for each episode! I hope you have all enjoyed the podcast version of the novel. It has been a wonderful and often arduous experiment. In the end I'm glad I did it and I look forward to podcasting more fiction in the future, taking all lessons learned into account. If you would like to hear a podcast all about vampires featuring myself and my fiancée Michelle, the voice of Lilith, please stop by the Out Of The Coffin podcast at http://www.OutOfTheCoffin.com/.

LILITH'S LOVE Episode #12 – July 14, 2010

Two months later... I cannot thank you all enough for being patient in waiting for this episode. If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or one of my other online haunts, you know some of the issues that have caused this delay. I'm not here however to list the myriad reasons. Instead, I will just beg your pardon and jump right into Chapter 11 of LILITH’S LOVE.

Donovan has precious little time to adjust to his senses being improved after feeding from Lilith. His friends discover that Chris has been kidnapped so they mount a search party to find him.

WARNING: This episode contains adult language and cliffhangers. Listener discretion is advised.

This episode stars Michelle Celley as Lilith Thompson, Dani Cutler as Anna Foster, C.J. Feierabend as Mary Jane Hill, Robert Gallagher as Malcolm, Jack Hosley as Jake, Karl Long as Christian Armstrong, and Jack Mangan as Michael Barrett.

Delays

I am writing to you all from my phone. This is because my PC has crashed again and I'm in the process of determining what can be salvaged. Beyond my health issues, this has been the largest factor in the many and persistent delays in producing the final episodes of LILITH'S LOVE.

I promise you all that as soon as I can, I will be releasing the episodes here and on the mirror sites. I want to thank you for your patience. Those of you leaving comments, please know that I appreciate your words and know that I would have responded sooner had I the chance.
June has just been a terrible month around here. I am eager to see it gone and move on with the production post haste.
Thank you all,
Dan

Mea culpa

Folks, we do apologize for the delay in not only episodes here but over at OutOfTheCoffin.com. Computer problems, summer vacations, and random octopus incursions are keeping us all very busy. We are still planning to release the next episode in June (yes of 2010, thank you very much), with the final episodes to follow in short order in July. Hang with us. We're getting everything in order, we promise!

Phoenix Comicon May 27-30!

Phoenix Comicon 2010

Phoenix Comicon 2010

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you all know that I will be attending the Phoenix Comicon this Memorial Day weekend. I am not a guest nor on any panels; I am just attending as a convention-goer. I will definitely be there all day Saturday and Sunday. I may be attending Thursday and Friday nights. Michelle (the voice of Lilith) will be joining me on Sunday.

Furthermore, I have confirmed that other Lilith's Love voice actors will be attending on various days. Including Dani Cutler (Anna), Jack Mangan (Michael), CJ Feierabend (Mary Jane), Dan Feierabend (The Master), and TD-0013 (the Patrolman).

If you will be attending Phoenix Comicon, please let me know by sending me a Twitter DM (@DanS42) or Facebook msg. I would love to see you there!

By the by, there's apparently a convention in Baltimore this weekend, too. If you happen to be headed that way, have fun and say Hey to everyone for me. :^)

No matter what you do this weekend, stay safe and have fun, and I'll be back soon with the next episode!

LILITH'S LOVE Episode #11 – May 15, 2010

My most sincere apologies for everyone. Such a long hiatus was not intended. I hope you will all forgive the delay. Without further ado, here is Chapter 10 of LILITH’S LOVE.

Lilith goes to Michael's bar hoping to find out if he, Jake, or Malcolm might have seen Mary Jane. When Lilith discovers the truth, she'll find it very difficult to trust them all. However, she may have no choice when she does encounter Mary Jane again.

WARNING: This episode contains sexual situations, adult language, and astrology. Listener discretion is advised.

This episode stars Michelle Celley as Lilith Thompson, Dani Cutler as Anna Foster, Robert Gallagher as Malcolm, Jack Hosley as Jake, Karl Long as Christian Armstrong, and Jack Mangan as Michael Barrett.

Thank you for visiting, listening, and subscribing! I'll be back with episode twelve in two more weeks (barring further issues)!

Episode 11 will be late

Walpurgis Night bonfire in Sweden - Wikipedia

Walpurgis Night bonfire in Sweden - Wikipedia

I have spent the last couple nights recovering the audio of Chapter 11 for my lines. I still have to edit my audio and then edit everyone else's in. There is no way this will be done by this weekend. My apologies. I will endeavor to have the episode posted as soon as possible.

In the meantime, enjoy your Walpurgisnacht bonfires, and then have a scone and a large house blend this weekend and I'll be back ASANP (As Soon As Nocturnally Possible).
