Buy my Latest Short Story

Stiff-Legged Bear  


Luke's brother Cody went missing four years ago. The police could't find him. Neither could search and rescue. Everyone believed he got lost or died in an accident in the woods. Years later Luke thinks he found something to prove what happened. Maybe Cody had been right all along. The mythological monster was real. Luke and his buddy Nick travel deeper into the woods to find out.

Writings of Dan - Episode 00 "A Short Preview"

You may have noticed that I removed the "soon to be" red text from above "podcaster" in my blog's header. That's right, I have recently obtained a set up that I can record nice, clean, high quality audio on! I will now start to podcast my fiction. I can't say how excited about this I am. My eventual goal is to get my novels onto, but first I must finish one, and edit the other :) In the mean time, I'll be podcasting one Fantasy short story next month titled "Good Things Come in Small Packages." In the month of May, I will podcast a Sci-Fi short story titled "My Last Day." I'd like to put out one short story a month until I release my first novel, and maybe at that point I will start a feed in iTunes. Until then, this is your one stop shop for podfic from Dan Dan The Art Man.

Episode Zero, a very short preview of what's to come, enjoy!

  1. Sounds good! Great voice quality for a podiobook listen!

  2. Tom, thank you so much! You rock! I really appreciate it. I've re-recorded everything to slow down my delivery a bit and get a consistent volume level. I've also chosen a different song for the intro. I'll put it in a new blog post that should be up after you read this.

    I'm so glad you like what you've heard so far, I'd love to hear your feedback on the whole short story when it drops, which I'm hoping will be this Friday!

    Thanks again!

  3. Well, Friday is here and I'm only about halfway done. I was just going to do a straight read, but couldn't stop myself from adding mood music and a few sound effects here and there:) I think it will be worth it, so far I think it's adding a lot to the story. It is very tempting to release a part 1 today, but I must wait until it's complete! Thanks for your comment.

  4. Tom, the full episode is now available with background music and tons of sound effects! If you haven't checked it out yet, I think you'll really enjoy it. Thanks again for your kind comment!
