As my last blog post discussed, I'm turning my novel, Imaginary Me, into an audiobook for your ears to scrumptiously consume! Yum, yum. To make sure the audiobook is as delicious to the ears as possible, I have to make sure the narrator sounds great. So I've been reviewing auditions from narrators.
I'm happy to say that I have picked someone. Who is it? Well, that'll come in a future blog post. But for now, I will let you know who my top auditions were! Complete with an audition sample!
Over the next week, I will highlight the top three auditions I received. All of these individuals could have narrated the book and I would've been happy. They were able to bring what I wrote to life and it was amazing to hear their interpretation of my story in just the little snippets I gave them to read.
In no particular order, the first audition I'd like to present to you is from Jake Hunsbusher. His audition was great! Not only is his narration clear but his ability to do character voices put him in the top auditions I received. Below is some detail about Mr. Hunsbusher along with a partial recording of his audition.
Narrator: Jake Hunsbusher
Bio: I've helped sell over 600 audiobooks so far! I'm ready to record! Nuanced character voices, clear direct narration, and a strict focus on production quality. Let's talk!
I'm a professional voice actor ready to use my talents to enhance your material. I've done a lot of projects that focus on varied character voices with BIG personalities but I've also done narration work for tutorials, radio, and, you guessed it, audiobooks!
