A copy of the audio version of The Death Pictures has arrived at Hall Towers, and is causing me some mixed feelings.
It's great to be asked to narrate my own books - I just know that if an actor had done it, I'd have taken issue with just about every different voice and inflexion he or she used for the characters. Not that I'm precious about the TV Detective series or anything, but they're my friends; mine, mine, mine!
So, it's a compliment to do the recordings myself, but it sure is odd to hear your own voice coming at you, telling you the story of an apparently pointless murder of a dying artist. I'm still not sure what to make of it.
You'd think I'd be used to hearing myself on the radio or TV by now, so it wouldn't feel strange, but that's not the case. I think it's probably because the books are so very personal.
Anyway, if you fancy trying them, they're on the Apple Store to download. If you do give them a try, let me know what you think via the contact page - www.thetvdetective.com/contact.html - but please be kind!
