Thanks to mooseturds on Twitter I have just read that a new audio book performed by RA is coming out this month. Apparently on the same day as The Jane Austen Society, the book is called His & Hers and tells the same story from two different perspectives, with RA narrating “his” story, and a performer called Stephanie Racine performing “her”. The character voiced by RA is a DCI.
Hello Rowan Jackman? And here is an interesting tidbit about the recording process:
I wonder how that worked – recording on your own
in your toilet with the producer connected via FaceTime 😂. I bet he will never be able to use that toilet for its original purpose again 🤣. More information HERE via The Bookseller. I haven’t quite figured out yet whether this is an Audible production? There is, however, already a pre-order page for His & Hers available on Audible. But hold your horses credits until the performers’ names have been added.
Otherwise: new month, new beginning! With the first of May, I am hoping that we will see some improvements in the current pandemic developments. Our lockdown is in place until the fifth, and I am keen to see what the powers that be have decided for the near future. Personally, I don’t think we will go back to anything near-normal, soon. With my shipment of 3 kilos of Haribo gummi bears, I can confidently sit it out for another few weeks 😉.
Lastly, upon request *waves at Besotted*, here are a couple of pictures from Casa Guylty. First up is “Rupert Armchair”, also tenderly abbreviated to “RA”, in his new habitat.
Not sure why I am suddenly reminded of this 😇:
The next project is a reading light for Rupert, and something to disguise that ugly electrical switch in the corner there. (This room served as a kitchen for some time before and after we moved in, and the switch operated an electric cooker.) And the following is the newly covered sofa in our sitting room.
It’s not a massive departure from the previous sofa covers (they were a deep orange) but it is clean and unripped.
Happy May, everybody!
