I’ve spent the past few days listening to audition tapes from voice actors interested in narrating four of my books. My publisher, The Wild Rose Press, has offered their authors the opportunity to put their back-list titles into audio format.
The process for choosing a narrator is challenging in that the audition encompasses a very short passage in the grand scheme of an entire book.
Here’s a peek at two of the five books coming soon to audio!
When Ronan MacAlister returns to Glencoe, Maine to see to the affairs of his late uncle, he’s immediately reminded of why he’s stayed away. The small town is definitely not his cup of tea, and he can’t wait to settle the estate and be done with the cold winters. The only bright spot is the feisty farm manager, Aileen. All grown up now and far from the shy and reserved girl from his childhood, she exudes a steamy sexuality that has Ronan and his unruly body on full alert.
Aileen MacDougall had a huge crush on Ronan when she was a teenager, content to adore him from afar whenever his family came to Glencoe for a visit. Now he’s back, and although the circumstances are less than ideal, she’s eager to find out if her fantasies can live up to reality. But he holds the key to the future of Glencoe in his hands as well as her own hopes and dreams.
Can being trapped together in a remote cabin during a freak snowstorm melt his heart? Or will they discover they have differences even kilty pleasures can’t overcome?

When reporter, Kate Brogan, and her ex-husband vice cop, Matthew Kelly, both end up investigating local psychic Olga Limas, Kate realizes the fluff piece of journalism she’d anticipated might just turn into something more. Out to debunk the woman’s claim of being able to guide seance participants into the future, both hers and Matt’s skepticism is put to the test when they find themselves transported to 2065.
Certain the only one they can truly trust is each other, they form an alliance that quickly stirs more intimate and loving memories. Just as they are about to be shown the way home, a presidential assassination puts their lives, and their chances for a “happily ever after,” in jeopardy.

I’ll share more clips with you as I review them. And, of course, once the narrator has been chosen for each project, and the book becomes available, I’ll be sure to share the good news!
