We met online and immediately began a conversational exploration into life, spirituality, and, in particular, relationships. As the days went on and our conversation deepened, we didn’t feel moved to exchange photos or share details about our ages, our education, our interests, or our pasts, and yet our feeling of connection to each other only intensified. When we met in person three weeks later, one lingering kiss ignited a passion that continues to this day.
Early one morning, five months and many mystical sychronicities later, we experienced a profound realization. In that moment, we looked into each other’s eyes and simply knew we were here together to do something in this world. We also knew that if we said yes to this greater purpose for our relationship, our lives were going to change dramatically.
Four years later, it finally became clear to us that what we were together to do was to help others have deeply connected relationships. So we spent another four years examining our relationship, writing down our discoveries in practical, accessible language, and trying out our ideas with dozens of other people, both singles and couples.
We called our book The Soulmate Experience because we knew that although finding one’s “soulmate” might be very elusive, even impossible, creating a “soulmate experience”—a relationship deeply connected on all levels: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual—is available to everyone. And since our book’s publication almost two years ago, we hear from readers almost every day that it’s working.
The message we’d like to give readers is this: Whether you’re single or already in a relationship, it is possible to create and sustain a profoundly connected, exciting, and deeply rewarding relationship experience.
When you wrote the book did you know you were going to offer it as an audio book?
Yes, eventually. Now we record the audio book at the same time the final proofing of the print book is underway, as the two processes support each other.
Why did you decide to produce an audio book?
Because more and more people these days are listening to information while driving, exercising, and the like.
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
We read it ourselves—first we received some training in a professional studio and then we recorded it on our own, with professional assistance. It was a very fun experience! The outtakes are hilarious… 😉
Get a great microphone and create a nice sound by padding the walls and ceiling. Hire a professional editor to assist with your initial recording setup and clean up the final files. What else would you like to share with readers about your audio book?
We’ve been told it makes great listening, especially the stories of real people.
