The face behind the voice
If you haven't heard, Audible.com bought the audio rights for my first three books (recordings available in September). Here's the voice for my vampire-detective Felix Gomez, the talented Jay Snyder. As appropriate for someone doing Felix Gomez, Jay's hoisting a beer in a New York bar.
I was in New York for ThrillerFest
. Being in the Big Apple, I had to first wander around and see what was new. Since scooters are currently the rage and with the obscene price of gas, it's no wonder the NYPD has their own fleet of scootertrash.
The first night, eight of us thriller writers* ganged up for a signing with bestseller author and MC for the night, Lee Childs at the Park Avenue Borders. (*including Laura Benedict, Laura Caldwell, JT Ellison, Michelle Gagnon, Shane Gericke, Tim Maleeny, and Alexandra Sokoloff)
We had a full house though I suspect the attendance had as much to do with the raffle of an eight-foot snake (modeled here by a groupie of Child's) as it did with our literary talent.
What's New York City without a night on the town? Here we are ridding Manhattan of the scourge of margaritas, one glass at a time. Agent Lukas Ortiz and fellow authors Michelle Gagnon, Jason Starr, and Allison Gaylin.
ThrillerFest had on its schedule the big kahunas of bestsellers. Here on the right is the legendary RL Stine. At the left are Robert Liparulo and Jon Land.
A banquet shot in the Grand Hyatt (meaning $$$ for everything).
The ThrillerMaster Award was given to the prolific and successful Sandra Brown. Now on my TBR pile.
Back to Jay Snyder. He shared with me the good news that he and fiancee Michal were tying the knot on Sunday. Gracious voice-over artist that he is, Jay invited me to their reception in Brooklyn where I got to meet Michal (in the blue dress) and many other cool friends in the voice and musical profession. As you can see, Jay cleans up nicely.
Best wishes to the happy couple.
