The audio recordings are awful. Tania and I are always delegated the task of writing and recording the script telling sales about our new books. But two things have made the experience better. For one, they've moved us out of the intimidating professional audio studio and into a vacant room upstairs. And, we decided that since it's unlikely most of the sales team will listen to the recording, we might as well be silly about it. As I recall, Tania wrote a cheer to promote Dragon Girl, I impersonated Spanish soccer commentary for Sasameke, and we both make tummy-rumbling noises for Not Love But Delicious Foods.
Last season, I pretended that the zombie apocalypse had descended upon our offices and that I was hiding out in the studio to avoid the undead ravaging the children's division. I'm kind of glad I never got a copy to listen to.
