Here, at last, is the first episode of the audio drama Empire of Blood. Huge thanks to Alan White and the entire Empire of Blood cast  for all their hard work and making Vincent Marconi’s first steps into the world of audio so confident.

A grisly murder in Australia causes the Icarus Foundation to assign Vincent Marconi to the investigation– but Vincent is weary, bruised, and tired of losing friends to the evil that plagues our world.

Listen to the First Seven Minutes of Empire of Blood – The Audio Drama *UPDATED*

I’m very excited to reveal this one as now we are taking our first true steps into the world of audio dramas. The first episode of Empire of Blood has been recorded and Alan and I are working together to have this ready soon to release. In the meantime enjoy the first scene from Empire of Blood audio centered around Vincent Marconi who was first introduced in the Unseen Shadows novel: Fallen Heroes.

I should note that the soundtrack hasn’t been added as yet but this first scene is all but complete. Big Props to all the voice actors for their stellar work in this scene…still getting my head around hearing Vincent speak!

Update: as producer the audio drams head honcho  Alan White has signed off on this I thought you might like to hear the scene with finished soundtrack I put together added on. There still a few tweaks to be made but you’ll get the idea. By the way the theme at the end which is the Unseen Shadows theme (yay a theme!) plays for a lot longer than it will in the final version.

Enjoy

First Two Clips from the ‘Empire of Blood’ Audio Drama

Continuing the day of previews I thought I would give comics a rest for today and head into the world of audio dramas. To that end feast your ears on two early clips from the six part audio drama ‘Empire of Blood’.

If you’ve read Fallen Heroes and I tell you this tale stars Vincent Marconi you’ll know who I’m talking about. If you’ve not read the book it doesn’t matter as it’s a cracking standalone story.

Just to give you a heads up that now all the effects have been added yet and neither has the soundtrack but the clips should give you a good idea what to expect.

Meet And Listen to the Cast of Audio Adventure ‘Empire of Blood’

So it’s been a very interesting couple of months for me getting to peek behind the curtain of an audio drama production and co-write my very first audio script.

I’ve been a big fan of audio dramas ever since I was a kid when I first listened to the Lord of the Rings audio adaptation on BBC Radio. To be here listening to a host of fantastic voice actors and actresses reading for a part in a drama centered arond a character from one of my stories is a mind blower and no mistake.

I think the weirdest part for me was listening to the audition’s for Vincent’s part and having to match that against how I’d heard Vincent sounding in my head as I wrote his dialogue. All in all a rewarding and interesting experience for me and hopefully it will be for everyone involved. Big thanks again to Alan White for spearheading this, putting together the story ideas and script, creating and posting up the casting sheets and allowing me to play an active role in the process.

So with the deadline passed Alan and I listened to all the great auditions, shared our thoughts and then came up with the cast for episode one of Vincent Marconi’s first outing into the world of audio. As a little background for people who have read Fallen Heroes this adventure is set after the events of the novel. Like all the spin off projects we are ensuring that people won’t need to have read the novel to enjoy the audio drama but if you want a richer experience then it’s definitely going to help having read it.

What I decided to do was rather than just list the cast I would also stick on my fave readings from their auditions to give you a hint of what to expect. There will be more info on the cast members in the weeks to come as recording for episode 1 gets well underway.

So I give you the cast of Episode 1 of first Unseen Shadows audio adventure ‘Empire of Blood’.
