Need a Narrator?

One of the coolest ways to attract your literary audience is with an audio book. Did you know that in 2016 26% of the population had listened to an audio book in a 12-month calendar year? Since then, the numbers have increased more than 40% with more than 70,000 books being created yearly. Interestingly, 48% of all listeners are under the age of 35. (goodreader.com)


How can you stand out in such a driven market? The best way is to find a narrator that understands the uniqueness of your body of work. For example, you wouldn't have someone who is only experienced in self-help to narrate your urban fiction novel would you?


Some of the most important factors that go into narrating include the understanding of literary elements, such as:


Tone

dialect

rhyme scheme

theme

characterization

Point of View

reliable or unreliable narrative

identity & more


With over 11 years of experience in literature, a B.A. in English and currently in my M.A. in English & Creative Writing, I have the skills and knowledge to bring your audio book to life. Below you will find my audio samples. If you'd like me to do a sample of ONE PAGE of your book, please submit your details below. I look forward to becoming your narrator.
