I maintain a PO box, which is primarily for receiving parcels from Scott. That makes it worth the expense. But, the address is also posted on our about page. And so, every once in a while, I get an unsolicited book, catalogue or something else. This one falls into the latter category. A CD full of audiobook samples!?!?
It came with a letter:
Greetings to Jesse Willis,
I am a voice talent specializing in storytelling and audio book narration. The novel, “In The Company Of Ogres” by A. Lee Martinez, has captured my heart and imagination. This is a book that just cries out to be spoken. I would very much like to have you
consider allowing me to narrate this novel and bring its characters to life. I have the ability to record audio books and deliver the recordings to you.
You would have several different delivery formats from which to choose. I am, currently, in the process of narrating and editing two biographies for Redwood Audio Books. My passion, however, is for the sci-fi fantasy genre. The attached CD contains two samples of my narration from “In The Company Of Ogres“. In addition, the CD contains samples of narration from other sources. If you would like to know more about me and hear more samples of my voicing, please visit my website at: http://darlasvoice.net
Sorry Darla. SFFaudio doesn’t make audiobooks, commercial or otherwise. I’ve solicited a few friends to record some for a podcast, but that is never a commercial venture. From the sample CD (also available in mp3s on your website), I can hear you do have a good narrator’s voice. I hope you can make a go of it.
