IHS: Welcome, Augustus. Thank you for being with us today. I’m really excited to have you here! Would you please tell our followers who you are, what city you're from?
Augustus: I am Augustus Vaughn (Augustus V.). I currently live in Beverly Hills. It is beautiful!
IHS: Okay, Great! What is the title of the book you just completed with us?
Augustus: The Bad Boy (Complete Set)
IHS: Interesting title for an intriguing book. Now, please tell us, what was your favorite part about listening to this book come to life?
Augustus: The testimonies in the reviews for the series, I kind of teared up on some of them. Have your Kleenex ready if you read them! lol
IHS: I know what you mean! Those are really great reviews! Now, whether fiction or non-fiction, books are truly inspired work from authors. What was your inspiration for this book?
Augustus: That's certainly a good question. My inspiration was watching some beautiful relationships with the most beautiful people you can know, turn into fuel for the next Tyler Perry productions. I had to do something about it. And not with jargon, but actual result bringing solutions.
IHS: Switching gears now, is your primary business writing? If so, what do you do for fun? If not, what do you do “in real life”?
Augustus: I understand the question in full, and hope this answers the question... But writing is not a business for me, I do this as a calling, a ministry, and... well... yeah, for fun too!
IHS: Yes, that answers the question. Writing is most definitely a calling. Ok now, many authors are not audiobook listeners by nature. Are you? Have you ever listened to an audiobook before your own?
Augustus: This is a good question. One day, I was in a debate with someone concerning biblical matters, and of course, things got real. So I felt the need to inform them that I've read the entire Bible more than 10 times! And they stumbled and asked; "how? how could you do that and be so young" I gently replied... "Youtube" lol
IHS: You narrated the book yourself, which is quite a task. What was it like to hear your book come to life by giving it a voice?
Augustus: This one will be fun to answer, I did have to become a different person narrating this book, I think all authors should narrate their own work from time to time.
IHS: What were you most worried about when starting out with this audiobook process? Did the worry happen or was it unjustified?
Augustus: This audiobook was my first, so I was terrified! And Audible did not help lol. From the sound check, to the quality, I had to record the entire series over 3 times just to get it on Audible. But I have library now, so you can say it was worth it.
