Note: My current rates are $200 PFH for a standalone, $175 PFH for a series of 3 or more books scheduled no more than two months apart. I am open to negotiation so don't hesitate to reach out to me. I have a very limited number of Shared Royalty Contract openings each year, and those fill quickly. To be considered for a Shared Royalty Contract, an author and/or book must have a strong sales track record. I grew up traveling the world and am proficient in the art of language. As a musician, I hear the melody and rhythm of the spoken word in every voice, making me adept at picking up and performing various accents. I'm a public speaker and an author, so I have an excellent grasp of the English language, sentence structure, form, and prose within the context of story. I write and read primarily fiction, but I enjoy narrating both fiction and nonfiction. I am able to voice a variety of character ages, from children to elderly, both female and male. I especially appreciate working with authors on series, where prominent characters continue through multiple books. My voice has been called easy to listen to, exotic, soothing, mysterious, and dramatic. It lends itself well to Contemporary Commercial Fiction, especially in Women's Fiction, Cozy Mystery, Sweet Romance, and Young Adult or Coming of Age genres. ~ I do not narrate erotica or high-level heat romance. ~ I do not read horror of extreme graphic nature, but I love a good mystery or thriller. My favorite aspect of ACX is how simple they make it for good communication between my authors and me. It is my goal to produce your audiobook the way YOU want it to sound.
