Where You Can Find It

SCIENCE FICTION … FANTASY … HORROR

The futures of which we’re now dreaming are taking on new twists and turns of the imagination. One could easily say that each of the stories in this volume take place in the future where magic has returned, technology has abandoned us, aliens have invaded us, or we ourselves have evolved—or devolved—beyond our ability to predict.

This volume collects Year #2’s best of the best speculative fiction published in 2010 at WilyWriters.com.

It includes the following stories:

My latest project is the Dire Multiverse audio drama! It is produced by Games Omniverse in conjunction with Wily Writers.

It is a horror/paranormal romp in an ever-expanding world and consciousness, an enlightenment adventure with an ensemble cast of characters all coming to terms with the revelation that magic is real.

Have a listen to the first episode, an introduction to the story.

I’ve been circling this software for some time, but haven’t been sold that it will actually help me cut down the amount of time it takes to edit my audiobook files…until today. I’ve actually bitten the bullet and invested in it. (P.S. It’s on sale right now.)

I spent several hours with the Test version (you can test it free for a month), and I’ve found just the right combination of apps and settings that will edit out much of the clicks and crackles that I produce when recording.

What It Does

Izotope RX7 Standard is the one I bought. I don’t need the Pro version. Too many features I’ll never use. As it is, I’m unlikely to ever need more than two of the apps in the Standard version:

  • De-Crackle app
  • De-Click app

I fiddled with the settings until I got them just where I wanted them.

What It Doesn’t Do

This improved the file without warping the sound, but it didn’t perfect the recording. I will still have to go in and clean up the most agregious mouth noises and clicks. I’m okay with that. I believe that RX7 will get me more than halfway there, and that’s a big win for me and my time challenges.

If you have any questions about my experience with RX7, you can contact me on Facebook @angelmccoy.

I’ve finished my work on this project, and now I’m just waiting for it to launch! Can’t wait! This game is so unique, and the main character, Jesse, is a strong and nuanced hero who I know you’ll find fascinating as her story unfolds. The story has that Finnish strangeness that we know and love from Remedy’s earlier releases. So excited for this!

I am over the moon!  CONTROL won several awards from IGN, specifically the 2019 Game of the Year award! I couldn’t be prouder to have contributed to such an astounding project.

Remedy Entertainment, the game company known for masterful storytelling in their games, created the games QUANTUM BREAK, MAX PAYNE series, ALAN WAKE, and more. Their history of cinema-style narrative was like honey to my inner writing bee.

I traveled to Finland to meet everyone and get oriented to the I.P. Then I began creating content for the game! There’s nothing quite like starting a new project, especially one that fuels your creativity and fits your aptitudes and appetites so well! You guys are gonna LOVE this game!
