Announcing: The Returning!

Hey folks, eggyolk here.
I humbly submit for your enjoyment my very first podcast: "The Returning"

The Returning is a serialized podcast novel about alien abductees. Mysterious lights, lost time, visions of strange visitors, these are all phenomenon associated with alien visitation. These are phenomenon associated with delusional attention hungry yokels. Rebecca Linnekin and Mark Dion will soon discover that some tall tales are nowhere near as fantastic and terrible as the truth.

For all you drabblecast fans, I can say that this story fits one of Norm's guidelines for story submissions. The fun one. Which is too say the one that comes with combat lubrication.

The podcast can be found at http://www.heyescast.info/thereturning
New episodes every other Thursday in the evening.
Give it go, will ya!
Thanks,

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it! It's nice to get some feedback!

We're on the bi-weekly plan here, I gotta do all my writing, recording, editing, and mixing when my little boy naps. Who knew that editing and mixing audio would deeply satisfy the perfectionist in me? I mean I knew it would drive me crazy, but it is so very satisfying.

Hey folks, it's that time of the month again:

Episode 5: Running
http://www.heyescast.info
Download the mp3 here: http://files.me.com/dheyes/1sogln.mp3


Previously on, The Returning
Sheila reached out to Becca making psychic contact with her in the middle of her high level meeting. Meanwhile Becca struggled to find out who is sabotaging her network and why. Mark came out of funk of losing time and sudden obsessive compulsive behavior, and landed himself a job as a fixit guy at the Hopkin’s Court apartment complex where he and Becca live. Meanwhile Jeremy Faulkner found himself running low on cash but not as he takes on work as a private eye, only to be hired by Becca.

And now, The Lights are coming.

The Returning, a serialized novel about alien abductees.
Advisory for this episode:
Language, mild alien gore

Story Run time: 33:18 (with plenty of babble afterwards)

Previously on The Returning
Mark, Becca, and Sheila have escaped the Lights - for now. Faulkner begins investigating Becca’s problems at work, and neither yet know that they’ve already met. While hiding from the lights in a parking garage just off the highway, Sheila gave the others a lesson in tactics and her own history. Mark is introduced to Nessa who assumes that his relationship to Nessa is purely the professional kind and takes offence. Meanwhile Special Agent Kelly lurks in the building heat of Jaffery, waiting to make his move.

Now it’s time sit back and prepare for The Returning.

Mild alien gore? I can't wait!
Is the gore mild, or the alien?

I haven't submitted to iTunes yet, I have to rebuild my website to do that - even though I made it with iWeb. Go figure! I am going to do a rebuild of the website at the end of season one though, I just don't have enough time between now and Christmas to get it done.

Glad you're enjoying the show!

Yeah I went through this already but iTunes told me I didn't have a valid podcast name, and one other issue (which I don't recall off-hand.) I'll try it again though, just for yucks!

I just got my confirmation email!!!

The Returning will be listed by iTunes! Hot Damn!

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSt ... =389866085" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That'll be the link they tell me. For some reason the store only lists the last five episodes, but if you subscribe via the store you can download all of them. Still researching that.
