Science Fiction author Crystal Storm is spreading the word that her novels, “The Synarchy Series” are about to make the leap from the pages and into the ears of science fiction fans.
The story in the “Synarchy Series” is about Stefano Vasco Terenzio who is manipulating events as the world inches closer to Dec. 21, 2012 (the last day on the Mayan calendar believed to be the last day of humanity). Terenzio is ready to see his machinations come to fruition to give him absolute power. He is quoted as saying, “I will die to see my will done, and it will be done.”
Many people have described the story as being “The Godfather” meets “Stargate-SG1”.
Not only has this series documented the rise of its main protagonist, but it has done amazing things for its author. Storm, aka DCS, has used her book as the flagship for the SVT Publishing empire, she is turning it into a movie (see the trailer here), she launched her own publishing company, and she has her own internet radio show where she discusses everything from literature to politics to the supernatural.
Now, Storm is telling people about a live reading of the first chapter of her book “Synarchy Book 2: The Ascension” on Blog Talk Radio on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 11 p.m. EST (10 p.m. CST and 8 p.m. PST respectively). Fans can hear it at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/svtpublishing.
Storm spoke with ScienceFictionZone.com about her book entering an audio realm.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE: How does it feel to see “Synarchy” taken to a new level with voices reading your work?
I know a lot of fans of the series love audio books and I wanted to make sure we were providing for them too. And, in keeping in the vein of doing things in a way that’s never been done before I thought it would be fun to actually get voice actors to bring the book to life in a different way.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE:Do you think this will bring a new audience to “Synarchy?”
DCS: I think it will, it will certainly be interesting to see. We’re experimenting and having fun with it.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE:Why is it voice actors and science fiction go well together?
DCS:I think voice actors could go well with a lot of different genres. I’m extremely lucky to have the caliber of actors that I do who are dedicated to this project so I really can’t wait to listen to how it turns out.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE: Can we expect to see your other works put to voice?
DCS: Absolutely. We’re going to do this for every novel in the series and maybe some of other projects.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE:How long is it taking to adapt the book or is this a straight reading?
DCS:We’re doing a live reading first just to see how it goes. It’ll be relaxed and fun. If the voice actor’s feel like they’d rather do a few test runs before we go live, then we’ll start pre-recording.
SCIENCEFICTIONZONE: Either way, we will be there! Thanks so much for joining us.
DCS: Thank you. This was fun!
