Now that my trilogy is complete and published I’ve been looking into the options I have available for Silent Sea Chronicles. My plans are to release a box set in October and to begin the production of the first audio book.
I ran a recent poll regarding the cover options available for the box set, thanks to those who voted and commented. I have now made my decision and look forward to revealing the cover to you very soon.
I have also begun the audition process for book 1 The Lost Sentinel through ACX, though I would like the chosen narrator to produce the whole Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.
I have two issues to decide upon before work can start.
Issue number one – Gender of narrator. The lead character is a young woman, but there are also two male main characters as well as numerous important male and female characters ranging from the very young to the old. On balance I feel a female narrator would be more suited to this but I’m asking for auditions from both and will see how that goes.
Issue number two – Age of the narrator. As this is more a YA trilogy, should I be looking for a younger voice actor? It’s not something I’ve considered before when I’ve listened to audiobooks so should I be worrying about it now? I haven’t listened to YA fantasy in audio so I’ve been listening to samples and am still researching what other authors have opted for.
Maybe you would like to have your say on your ideal narrator. If so please vote in the poll or comment in the post. I’m especially looking for comments from those who have read the series to see who they imagine would put voice Tei, Brogan, Farrell, Callisa etc. Even if you haven’t read the books, please vote. I appreciate all feedback.
If you are a narrator and interested in auditioning, please follow this link to ACX for more information.
Here’s a quick reminder of The Lost Sentinel – The magical island of Kalaya is dying along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?
Finally, I’m looking to run a short promo when the box set is available, so if any bloggers are interested in running a feature on release day please let me know. I will blog about that again when I have a release date but it’s never too early to start planning!
Thanks for reading.
