Been really busy..

It’s been a great couple of weeks in the booth. I’ve been so busy that there were actually a couple of projects I wasn’t sure I was going to get finished on time. I am however now at the spot where I’m marketing more than recording. Just the cycle that we all have to go through at times. I am not however going to focus on that, I’m going to focus on the good and the new.

Amazon and ACX have kept me pretty busy. I have a few new titles up. Unexplained Disappearances is one for you mystery buffs. Several unsolved cases of disappearances throughout history. Check it out if you get the chance.

Causation is a text helped to describe and instruct on the causality and how it affects our lives. This was a very interesting one to narrate as not only did I learn a lot myself, it challenged me in the reading style. Definitely worth looking at.

If you like ghost and haunting stories Haunted Asylums is definitely for you then. I know I enjoyed reading it, well I’m kind of weird that way anyway but the subject is something that I truly enjoy learning about so narrating it was a lot of fun.

Don’t forget Breaking Into Hollywood by my now friend and author Michael Uva. I loved reading his life story. He actually came on the radio show a couple of weeks ago: The Madhouse with special guest Mike Uva and talked about some of the stories in the book and his fascinating life. And if you listen to the show, yes he did send me pictures of the sugar bowl (that’s all I’m gonna say about that, you’ll have to listen to either the book or the show to find out)

The Worst Female Serial Killers In History is another fascinating listen. Again it is a favorite subject of mine and I completely enjoyed narrating this one. If you are like so many others that I know and are fascinated by the minds and actions of serial killers, definitely one to check out.

The 2 big projects that I’ve been working on I can’t really say much about as I am under an NDA for both of them. Suffice it to say that they were very educational and a lot of fun.

So what’s on the horizon? Well Get Outta My Head w/Marie and Janos has been a really big hit. We honestly feel that we’ve been able to touch a few lives and that makes it worth it for both of us. So much so that we are planning a weekly podcast as a continuation of the show. Look for more updates on that in the next week or so. It’s something that both Marie and I are very passionate about so we’re moving from the planning stages to the production stages as quickly as we can.

That’s about all for now. I know this one is a little longer than normal but I guess that’s what happens when I don’t update the ole blog as often as I should. Someone should remind me to get on that more often.

Check out my website : Mike Hatak Voice Over Talent for demos and info on my voice over services or you can always contact me here and we can discuss your project and how I can help with it.

Until the next time I see you, or you hear me, be good to each other.


Bad me, haven’t blogged in too long…

Yes it’s been too long since I’ve said hi to everyone, but I have a really good excuse… I’ve been really busy. Ok so that’s really not an excuse and I need to take a page from  Dave Courvoisier‘s book and blog at like 3am. It’s not like I’m not awake at that time anyway and it’s a good quiet time for blogging.

So what have I been up to? Just recently finished a pretty high dollar rush project for a new client that has already hired me for 2 more projects and it looks like there might be more down the road from them as well. If anything can be learned from this it’s this: dazzle new clients. Well you should dazzle all your clients but new ones especially. They were so amazed that I got their project done in not only under their deadline but 3 days under their deadline and they didn’t need to ask for any revisions or changes at all.

A couple of new local radio ads airing in Arizona that I’m really happy with.

New books on Amazon I’m really proud of. The Worst Female Serial Killers in History is up for sale on Amazon/Audible/Itunes and is an interesting listen. If you’re like most people I know the subject of serial killers fascinates you and this little audio book is no exception, some scary women in this one.

Knowledge of the Past, Possible, and Future: A Dialogue is another up for sale on those 3 platforms. It’s interesting and was a technical challenge to produce. The author wanted it to seem like a telephone conversation between the 2 characters in the book.

Breaking into the Movies! From Inglewood to Hollywood!: What Really Happens Behind the Lights and the Long Road to Get There! Is one I am particularly proud of. It’s the life story of Michael Uva who broke into the movie business as a grip. I mean what the hell is a grip? That’s what got me interested in the book in the 1st place. He has since become a good friend and we go back and forth calling each other, “The Other Michael” in our communications with each other. He’s going to making an appearance on my radio show tomorrow night The Madhouse @ 5pm PDT. Tune in if you can. If you can’t make it the show will be available at the above link on demand as soon as the show is over. It’s bound to be a fun conversation and the guy has so many hilarious stories about his work in the movie business.

That’s it for now. I promise that I will be better at getting the word out. Until the next time I see you, or you hear me, be good to one another.
