Updates on Frequency Novella and other Creative Projects in the Works

By Dr. John Reizer

I know there are very important happenings taking place throughout the world and I assure readers that I will be covering them on this website in the weeks and months to follow. I have been working on NoFakeNews for eight years. It’s absolutely amazing how fast time flies.

I wanted to offer everybody a little information about what’s going on concerning my writing projects. That’s pretty much what this post is about. I hope you don’t find the updates too boring; they’re important to me and my family.

For the past year or so, I have been writing day and night; working on several novels and giving my input to another writer working on the screenplay for The Target List which we are both hopeful will become a movie in the not too distant future.

In addition to that news, I am fortunate to have been asked to participate in an exciting new television series that will be released later in 2020. The television series, NO VIRTUE, is currently in preproduction and scheduled to begin filming in June 2020. I am currently a co-executive producer for two episodes.

No Virtue was written and will be directed by MJ Palo and others. MJ Palo is also writing the screenplay for The Target List.

My latest novella, FREQUENCY, was published and released on January 11, 2020, and is off to an amazing start. Frequency has received very positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and was such a fun story to write. I have always had a fascination about life existing beyond the parameters of Earth and this science fiction tale takes a long swim in those waters; exploring the possibility that alien life could be sent to our world by an extraterrestrial species through a radio frequency that has traveled 2.2 billion light-years across the universe. It’s a fun, quick read that most people seem to enjoy.

Frequency was a busy book on Amazon in February 2022.

The Frequency novella is currently in production to become an audiobook on the Audible platform in April 2020. Allen Grunerud, the narrator of The Target List audiobook will be the narrator of Frequency. I will post updates as that project progresses.

Nine years ago, I wrote a very short story (Novellete) titled, TRESANTARAS. I have been rewriting that manuscript into a more fully developed novella that will be published very soon under a brand-new title. I will let readers know more about this project once it is published.

Thanks for reading!

An Interview with Allen Grunerud – Narrator of The Target List

By NoFakeNews

Recently, we had an opportunity to ask the narrator of The Target List audiobook, Allen Grunerud a few questions. Here’s what he had to say:

When did you know you wanted to be an audiobook narrator?

I had been thinking about audiobook narration for several years prior to retiring from teaching a couple of years ago.  I have experience in voice-over and commercial work, so this seemed a logical transition.

How did you wind up narrating audiobooks? Was it always your goal or was it something you stumbled into by chance?

I am relatively new to audiobook narration.  I taught theatre and English for many years; that combination leads to a love of language and a reverence for the spoken word.  Narration provides an opportunity for artistic expression in the comfort of a home studio.

Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?

I use the ACX format to find audition opportunities.  ACX is the Amazon Audible production site that matches authors and producers and streamlines the business end of audiobook production.  It was not too long after I began auditioning that I began receiving offers.

A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?

I do think it is essential to be able to interpret an author’s words and be able to verbalize a character or mood.  Having been an actor and director for decades has made the move to audiobooks fairly seamless.

What type of training have you undergone?

I have my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Theatre and I produced and directed plays and musicals for professional, educational and community theatres.

How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?

As I indicated, I am fairly new to audiobook narration, so the process still feels fresh and enticing.  New projects bring new enthusiasm and I love to explore a new book and work with authors.

Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?

I am an audiobook listener; it was my salvation several years ago when I was commuting to work.  It is an excellent way to catch up on “reading” without having to read.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of narrating an audiobook?

My favorite part of narration is the interpretation and presentation of the author’s vision—trying to bring that to life.  I have great respect for writers; creation is a very personal thing, so I want to come as close as I can to make my narration fit the author’s intent.   My least favorite part, I suppose, is the technical end of things: editing and such. Also, I spend an inordinate amount of time re-recording in order to get the words right, get the sound right, get the mood right.

What would you say are your strongest narration abilities?

I guess I bring authenticity to my narration.  A believability. You never want the narration to sound like you are just reading a text.

What about this title compelled you to audition as narrator?

“The Target List” really piqued my curiosity because of its subject matter, its unlikely heroes and its suspenseful nature.  Once I began working on it I appreciated the economy of language and the very accessible and endearing characters. In addition, John (Reizer) is a very supportive and nurturing author to work with, which made the project a joy from beginning to end.  This is a terrific book and I hope I have done it justice.

The Target List Audiobook Review by Author L.S. Fellows

By L.S. Fellows, Author

The story begins with a “doctor” casting a wand over a young girl and curing her of a terminal disease. But it is some time before Clyde Daniel and his associate Donna are ready to share their breakthrough with the world.

However, it seems the world – or rather Big Pharma – is neither ready nor willing to accept this new radio wave technology. Many among us would query their hesitancy. Why would anyone not welcome such technology? Isn’t the point of Big Pharma to find cures for those pernicious diseases? Of course it is. But, such ‘cures’ come at a price – the cost of research is reflected in the amount charged for any new wonder drug.

Now, if patients no longer need to take daily medication to ease their pain and suffering as a result of chronic illness and diseases, then the demand for such pills and potions becomes redundant.

Oops!

Could big pharmaceutical companies be holding out against cures for today’s killer diseases? Is it all about money after all?

The short chapters really keep the pace taut and tense in this thought-provoking story. The narration adds to the tension, the personality of the main characters comes through, as does excitement for the wand’s potential in regards to the future of healthcare.

I could happily have listened to more about the characters and the conspiracies they face in bringing the wand to market, but I have to admit that the brevity of the story delivers the desired shock factor. It certainly had me thinking about the role of Big Pharma and the drugs industry and made me ever more thankful for European healthcare systems on which I currently rely. That said, if only there really could be something available like the wand … how amazing would that be?

Highly recommended for fans of medical thrillers: sharp, pacy and thought-provoking.

Audiobook Review of The Target List

By Gina Flores

It’s been more than a few months since I have written anything for NoFakeNews. My schedule has been hectic, and I have been back and forth to Europe like a pingpong ball this year. But now I have some downtime until January and can catch my breath.

I haven’t had the chance to write anything about Dr. Reizer’s novel, The Target List. I read the paperback in July; it was fantastic. I told John at the time it was the best thing he’d written to date and I loved his Michael Morris books.

I just finished listening to the audiobook edition narrated by Allen Grunerud. It’s also fantastic.

Let me just say that this story and the concept of WAND are brilliant. The storyline is not only plausible, it’s probably happened more frequently than anyone could imagine.

I loved Clyde’s character. He’s a very complex individual, intellectually speaking, yet down to earth and ready to confront and defeat professional assassins. Donna is great too – she possess the perfect personality to keep Clyde on track and between the two of them, they’re the perfect team.

The Target List is entertainment and a window’s look inside the world of Big Pharma all wrapped up in a two hour listen.

What I liked best about the novel is the simplicity of the writing. Dr. Reizer keeps the story’s pace moving at a good clip and is able to accurately portray the state of criminal activity taking place in the pharmaceutical industry, and still create a very good medical thriller. Not an easy thing to pull off.

If you’re interested in listening to or reading a great story, get acquainted with John Reizer’s, The Target List.

Gina’s book rating:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

 

The Target List (Audiobook)

WAND is a revolutionary new medical tool that cures diseased tissues in human beings without the use of drugs or surgery. Ten years in design and production, the technology has a 95% success rate in curing most forms of cancer in animals and human beings.

The brainchild of 48-year-old Harvard Medical School graduate, Clyde Daniel, WAND (Wave-Altering-Nanoparticle-Disrupter) is going to move the profession of medicine out of the dark ages and into something that closely resembles science fiction. That is, unless the pharmaceutical industry, which stands to lose billions of dollars in lost drug revenues, can intervene with its hired assassins and destroy the technology and its team of creators before it ever has a chance to see the light of day. 


The Target List is a medical science fiction thriller, a real pause-resister that will have listeners hooked from the first chapter through the very end of the book.

Reviews:

By Kindle and Ipod fan – USA

“This was great!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This has action from beginning to end. Short and fast and focused, it acknowledges one of the current beliefs that Big Pharma doesn’t want to cure anybody because it would hit their profits. The author’s writing style is different from Robin Cook, but if you like Robin Cook, you will also like this book.
I really liked the narrator. He does a good job differentiating different characters.

I was given this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.”

 

Norma Miles – United Kingdom

“We Wand to get rid of cancer today”

⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This very short medical thriller still manages to be an exciting action filled tale which also hints heavily about the current ongoing consultancy to keep people sick and dependent on the drugs that make a few pharmaceutical companies very wealthy. It is against their interests to bring health to a nation. Written consisely, more attention is paid to ideas than character but the main protagonists are nevertheless personable and endearing. Narration by Allen Grunerud is delivered with good intonation but in the slightly flattened tones of a news report, giving a greater authenticity to the story: a good choice. ”

Tiffani Policriti – USA

 “Suspenseful book with a perfectly matched narration”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This was a really good production. The sound quality of the narration was excellent. I thought the narrator did a nice presentation throughout the book.

The story content was also very interesting and quite suspenseful. I would recommend The Target List as a great audiobook to listen to.”

An Anonymous Reviewer – USA

A Fast Paced Medical Thriller

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I really enjoyed this book very much. It was extremely interesting and I couldn’t stop listening. The story was fascinating and I loved the suspenseful situations that Clyde and Donna constantly found themselves in.

The narrator was very good and his voice inflections with the different characters in the story really added to the performance.

I would recommend this audiobook to anyone looking for a good suspenseful listen.”

Tracey Allan – United Kingdom

“Interesting”

⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Good story and I like the way it refers to the big Pharmas and how they may be behind a lot of things (don’t want to say too much in case it spoils the story for others). Story flowed well and the narration was perfect for this type of story.”

Stephanie – USA

“Short medical thriller”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Loved it. Focused on beliefs that Big Pharma does not want cures as it impacts profits. Action from beginning to end. Narrator was excellent and really warmed to the story. He does a good job of differentiating characters.

I was given this audiobook in exchange for honest review. Keeping this one in my library!!”

   

Mark – USA

This story is awesome. It is so realistic that it makes your heart race, anticipating what’s going to happen next.

 

H. Nathan – USA

Super Interesting

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What a ride, this book is action-packed, sad, and very suspenseful. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat and is hard to put down, once you start listening to it. Every chapter in this story is amazing and keeps me thinking about it. It is super interesting.

 

 Alan K – USA

Five Stars

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I found besides giving us a good scare he goes right on making me laugh out loud but then by the end I felt like crying. It drags you from one emotion to another. I can’t wait for the next one. If you are looking for a thrilling page-turning story and you enjoy medical suspense then this book is for you.
