Brooding atmospheric narrator

Category : Fiction
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Brooding
Performance Notes
Here I set the tone for the moody and surreal story to come. Brooding and atmospheric.

Action scene, tense

Category : Mysteries & Thrillers
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Storyteller
Performance Notes
A excellent example of pacing through an action scene. This is from a werewolf story. From The Hyde Effect.

Dialogue w/ man and woman

Category : Fiction
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Articulate
Performance Notes
This is a nice bit of dialogue between a man and a woman. It's easy to tell who is speaking. I can do a range of these voices.

Multi person dialogue, intense scene

Category : Fiction
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-General American
Vocal Style : Articulate
Performance Notes
This is a nice little piece of dialogue with several characters, including an old blind man, a middle-aged Southern scoundrel type, a menacing man with a more neutral voice, and a couple of black men (the blind man's sons). The atmosphere is at first informative, then increasingly tense. From Hatteras Blue by David Poyer.

"Mango Publishing is very lucky to have the honor of publishing legendary author Leonard Carpenter, who wrote the million-selling Conan the Barbarian series we all know and love. Therefore, we were extremely selective when choosing a narrator for his novel LUSITANIA LOST. Edison McDaniels was the only one who could bring this marvelous story to life.  He did a brilliant job. Give it a listen and you'll soon agree!" Brenda Knight Editorial Director Mango Publishing  ••• "Edison McDaniels is on his way to being one of the superstars of audiobook narration. Edison brings novels to life in a way few others can match. With attention to detail both in the narration and his interaction with the author or publisher, he delivers a first rate experience. If Edison offers to narrate your novel, stop all other auditions and sign him. We did."  Tony Acree Publisher Hydra Publications, LLC  ••• "I second Tony Acree's endorsement of Edison McDaniels. He does a great job, and I am very pleased that my novels are his first narrations for Hydra Publications." Dr. Arlan Andrews, Sr., Author of Silicon Blood and The Valley of the Shaman ••• "If you had asked me in the beginning if I would have imagined a mature, African-American voice being perfect for Joel's story, I would never have imagined it would have worked out so well. Edison's voice captured the tone of the story." Carter Bowman, Author of Part Timers ••• "Edison McDaniels' narration of my novel, SILICON BLOOD, made me feel as though I were listening to the story for the first time. His edgy presentation captures exactly the tone I intended for the near-future, dystopian, noir tale of terror, guilt, and betrayal. A great job!" Dr. Arlan Andrews Sr., Author of Silicon Blood ••• "The patina of mystery and mysticism he is able to import by voice intonation alone gives the audiobook version an added dimension of realism. Edison, you captured my intentions perfectly." Dr. Arlan Andrews Sr., Author of The Valley of the Shaman
