Exciting news! This week I have forced myself to get out of my comfort zone. I have decided to do my very first audiobook production in English and German.
Our lovely Ambassador LUCKY was born during the lockdown in 2020 and has been our first Lily4Refugees Ambassador. Meanwhile, eight more adorable characters have joined our team.
But LUCKY is very precious to us, so I had to do the voiceover myself. And I have to admit, doing voice-over is much harder than I thought. Especially when you do everything from recording to editing yourself. And when you have no acting or voice-over experience like my amazing German narrator Dirk Jacobs (Lilys Botschafter), Sharda Laskowski (Lilys Ambassadors), Carl Lindquist (Teddy & Lily), and Beverley Murray (Bon Voyage).
Nevertheless, I’m proud of my first audiobook production and I really hope you enjoy Lucky’s fun and inspiring story!
Lucky, From Zero to Hero
is the story of an unhappy and nameless dog stuck in a smelly and unfriendly
animal shelter in Ireland. Just when you think there is absolutely no hope for
a better and more meaningful future, life surprises you. Lucky shares his
incredible and exciting life story and how he became a hero from zero.
Lucky’s story will teach young listeners about the importance of education, school, and work. He was born during the lockdown and is the first Lily4Refugees Ambassador. That’s why he is very precious to the writers Lily and Sima Amis and why Lily Amis has narrated the story herself.
