Book Trailer - Barren: Taking of Name
Science Fiction & Fantasy
The trailer for the first book in the Barren trilogy, by Jon Perrotti.
After years of being told-- in podcasting and theater work-- that my voice is easy to listen to, I began recording audiobooks of fanfiction in August of 2013. A year and 40+ audiofics later, I began recording audiobooks on ACX; I currently have seventeen published books and am working on one more.
I record using an AKG P220 with pop filter and shock mount, in a custom home studio with an acoustic blanket and acoustic foam surround. My preamp is a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd gen. I edit using Audacity.
Please note I do not imitate specific accents, but make every effort to use inflection and pacing to make individual voices unique and interesting.
With ACX, currently published:
Shadows of Aggar
Fires of Aggar
Sands of Aggar
Oceans of Aggar
Bonds of Aggar
Wilds of Aggar
Secondhand Origin Stories
More than 50 solo podfics, 5 collaborative multi-voice podfics, 3 collaborative audio trailers, theater work with Bloomington Civic Theater, theater work with Hamline University, theater work with Mounds View High School
From the author of Alien Hunters: "I love how every character sounds so distinct in your narration; you really have a talent for voices."
From the publisher of Shadows of Aggar: "Truly. I couldn't be more thrilled. I wish Chris Anne were here with me to hear you bring her work alive. I'd like to think, somehow, she can hear it. I cannot thank you enough. "
On the Audible release of Shadows of Aggar: "The reader did a fantastic job, bringing to life characters I have loved for years."
On podfic "Change of Heart" at AO3: "I love how you voice Lewis, just really seem to *get* him, and all the layers of confusion and affection and frustration and everything come through beautifully."
On podfic "Voices in the Dark" at AO3: "I really want to comment on the fantastic quality of your recording. First, the clarity of sound and the volume is spot on. Second and more importantly, I really like your reading voice. It's perfect for enjoyment of the story."
On podfic "And Who Shall Be Able to Stand?" at AO3: "Your voice gave me goosebumps and I got lost imagining the world you described!"
