Series 2 - Girls of Dirt
Set 500 years after the first series, with brand new characters and some well-loved names from the first books, this is a story about the women of Dirt and the dragons that become their friends. Strong female leads, a wonderful tale. Coming soon: Dragons of Dirt and the dramatic People of Dirt.
Includes a recap of series one.
Setting up at home to record audiobooks
If you are going to record your own books into audiobook form, you must do it properly. Despite some people saying you can simply record on your phone, this will produce an inferior product that annoys and infuriates listeners who are used to professionally recorded books.
I am not going through all possible buying choices here, you will need to do your own research, but this will hopefully give you a good starting point.
A Christmas Carol Audiobook
A brand new presentation of the original story by Charles Dickens, narrated by CC Hogan in a London accent. A dark and yet warm telling of this iconic tale.
The Joy of the Wonderful Breath
From time to time, the subject of breaths in recording comes up - should they stay or should they go?
The answer is, of course, quite simple - they should stay. But let me breath a little life into this debate and explain why.
Audiobooks of the classics by Charles Dickens
I am just starting out on a long-term venture to record the most famous books by Charles Dickens in my London Accent.
This is a big departure from the normal RP British presentation, but I think it brings the stories to life in a new, wonderful way.
Audiobooks by CC Hogan

The Young of the Plains
An episodic story about a young dragon and young girl living on the borders of the Eastern Plains.
This is a story aimed at younger readers and will be told in a series of short chapters on YouTube.
Using iZotope RX 6 for Audiobooks
This is a look at how I am currently using RX 6 Standard with Cubase Pro when working on my audiobook recordings.
This is not a review as such and may well grow over time as I learn more.
Audiobook Articles and Resources
A growing list of resources about producing audiobooks from around the websphere. Let me know if there are any useful titbits I should include.
Preparing a audiobook script for recording
In the good old days, scripts were printed on paper and the voice over would go through the lines with a pen, marking it up so he or she had a better chance when it came to recording.
In our modern world, paper is seen as a waste of trees and most of us work on tablets. So, how do I prepare my script?
Recording Your Own Poetry
Following on from my articles on Audiobooks, I thought I should talk a bit about poetry.
Although many of the techniques and technology tips are the same as recording any other spoken word media, poetry does have some specifics when it comes to presentation and attitude. This article is aimed at the poet who is possibly less confident when it comes to using their own voice to record their poems.
