If you read this blog, you probably know I’m in the process of making my first book, A Reason to Live, into an audio book through the Amazon site ACX.com. I’ve gotten several fantastic auditions from voice actors, and am a little stuck on how to proceed.
Got ten minutes? Listen to these voice samples from A Reason to Live, vote for your favorite and, if you want, give me a couple comments at the bottom of the page. It would be a huge help for me in making my decision (which I need to do before May 15 or so).
- Section #1 is the killer, so if it sounds kind of creepy, don’t assume it’s the whole book, just skip ahead a “page.”
[I wanted to hear how they did with a different mindset/character]
- Section #2 was action–a knife fight.
[I wanted to hear how they did action.]
- Section #3 was dialogue between Amanda and Marty.
[I wanted to hear how they did female voices and dialogue.]
Not all actors did all sections. I asked them to at least do Section #3 so that I could get a feel for dialogue (of which there’s more than the other two, obviously).
Thanks for your help!
