the April 2016 recording session
We did it! Together we reached our goal of $31,500 to finish the post-production (adding the music and sound effects that bring our stories to life) of the stories recorded in 2016.
Exciting Events Volume 5 (to be released later this summer) will include: A Light in the Window, Run For Your Life, The Day the Milk Jug Broke, When the Angels Sang, Emma Edmonds-Master of Disguise, and Elizabeth Fry-Angel of Newgate.
What's next? Now that the post-production goal has been met, we’ll make a new goal! At Your Story Hour, producing new stories is kind of like doing the dishes. Just when you think you’re done, more appear! But it has been said that, “If you have dirty dishes, it means you are blessed with food.” Instead of food, YSH is blessed with: 18 stories (in addition to those in Exciting Events Volume 5) that need to go through postproduction; 15 scripts that are ready for the next recording session, plus nine more scripts that need to be completed by the end of the year.
So now we face a new set of goals, knowing that we can count on you to help us reach them. If you would like to help us get a head start, make a donation today!
