North Star is now in audiobook production. I’m very happy that audiobook listeners will experience the talents of a wonderful narrator this summer. I tell you, once you listen to her reading of Yvette and Caresse’s interactions; you’d understand the brilliant acting ability she brings to the written word. I’ll introduce you to her work soon, I promise.
Now, I’m trying to select the best narrator for South Beach because I really would like both productions to come out around the same time.
For those of you that don’t know very much about audiobooks, you should really give it a try. Most listeners use audiobooks while they’re traveling, commuting and during lifestyle activities such as exercising, relaxing, cooking, cleaning, gardening, walking the dog, etc.
With the right narrator, audiobooks are a good replacement for reading fiction for attentive listeners. It’s a wonderful way to experience fiction. Audiobook narrators are often actors and actresses that have voice and dramatic training. They are able to use dialects and accents, can respond to direction, have the stamina that being in a closed studio for many hours requires, and ultimately deliver the feeling behind the author’s intent of the book.
I’m so glad I have the honor of selecting my choice of narrator because this novel sets up some main characters of the Sheridan Series. The performer plays all of the parts of my work (although there are also books performed by multiple narrators or a full cast).
So are you still having doubts about whether an audiobook can be as much of an enjoyable experience as the printed original? Well listen to real people talk about their audiobook experiences below.
