It’s easy to get caught up in all the things that seem to be going wrong in our lives. That’s why it’s so important to stop every now and then and think about what we’re grateful for. And what better day for gratitude than Friday?
Dear Greg Tremblay,
It’s been a little over a year since I first sat down with a borrowed microphone in a small closet stuffed with clothes, and tried this whole “narrating audiobooks” out.
When I found some narrator facebook groups and started asking naive questions and looking for advice, you were there for me. You didn’t care that I was new, or clueless, or that I was “new competition.” You just wanted to help. And you did.
We started talking directly via messenger, united not just by our career efforts but the sharing of Dreamspinner as a major client, and a love for quality gay romance. You let me vent when things were frustrating, and celebrated with me when things went well. You were honest, and frank, and funny.
When I decided to take the leap and build a professional quality recording space (largely inspired by your own upgrades), you gave me tons of advice and answered all of my questions. When I couldn’t figure out how to get the door to hang straight, you even went on a video call with me and walked me through it.
When we both talked our way into the Dreamspinner Author’s Workshop, you offered to split the costs of a room with me, and didn’t mind when it took me FOREVER to actually pay you back for it. We stayed up, drinking gin and tonic, talking life and business, narration and dreams.
When I hit a major dryspell, you reminded me to breathe.
You have been an incredible friend and ally. Confidant and role model.
Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for me. I know our journeys still have many miles ahead, and I look forward to all the times and ways in which those journeys will intersect.
Here’s to you friend!
