Interview with Bill Nevitt, Audiobook Narrator for the Disaster Crimes Series

I am really excited to welcome Bill Nevitt to Write with Fey. Bill is the audiobook narrator of Seismic Crimes, Tsunami Crimes, and the-soon-to-be-released Flaming Crimes! His answers are fascinating and gives a neat perspective into the work of narrators.

Welcome, Bill!


1. What equipment do you use and what’s your process from audition to finished product?

My equipment consists of a “Lexicon Omega” computer interface, Rode NT-1000 condenser mic and an Apple “iMac Pro” computer, 25” monitor.

Following the narration, I listen to the entire chapter, completing three steps:
A) ”Proofing” – confirming my narration matches the text of the book;
B) Editing – Confirming/adjusting the timing of the read, i.e. appropriate pauses, etc.
C) Mastering – noise reduction and volume adjustments to meet ACX’s standards

2018 (and 2017) Link Round Up

UPDATE: In my December post, you might've seen a note I added about going to the ER. I went after experiencing severe pain in my abdomen that lasted a full 24-hours and didn't respond to pain meds. I found out that I have a 7cm mass (about three inches) on my right ovary. I've seen a specialist at a cancer institute. No one can say exactly what it is, but because of my age, the specialist doesn't believe it's cancer. (Side note: my paternal grandma died of ovarian cancer.) I have an appointment at the end of the month, but I'm going to call today to see if I can get in sooner due to uncomfortable, new symptoms. I'll update you all next month. Thanks for your well wishes!

UPDATE: After talking to the nurse, she bumped up my ultrasound to this Friday with a follow up on Tuesday to discuss the results and next steps.


I didn't do a "Best of Write with Fey 2018" post (which I usually do in December) because I didn’t post as much last year. I didn't even do one in 2017! But then I thought that someone might’ve missed a post that he/she could use right about now, so here’s my linky round up.
