…that it would be this difficult to secure a narrator for my audiobook? It started off great and although the few that I auditioned weren’t the right voices for my novel, Relations, it seemed as if the interest was there. Now it isn’t. I really don’t know. I’m assuming that it’s due to my modest book sales. Hey, you gotta start somewhere.
Have you authors whose books are available in an audio format as well had this problem? If so, what did you do to resolve it?
Okay, so about two weeks ago, I told all of you about plunging into the world of audiobooks. It started off great. I listened to three narrators the day after I put out the call for them. However, there are two that have not auditioned for me but I have listened to their audio samples who I think would be perfect to read for my novel, Relations.
My problem? I haven’t been able to get in touch with either of them.
Have you ever called a repairman, agree on what needs to be done at your home, set aside a block of time to wait for him and he doesn’t show up?
Don’t you hate that?
I hate that!
Yeah, I know, the comparisons aren’t quite the same. I haven’t secured a narrator yet. It’s through no fault of mine. They are nowhere to be found.
I’m ready to get on with the project and this throws a monkey wrench in my plans. What to do?
