The audiobook industry is booming. Listening to books has never been more popular - fact or fiction, we all love a good listen. But finding the right narrator is a complex art.
In this episode, I'm talking to Amber Bates from Orion Books about the part she plays in getting a book from a manuscript and into our ears.
We cover all kinds of stuff, including
Casting - and who is involved in the process
What to look for in your audiobook narrator
The listener and why they're so important
How to work with the author
Studios vs home studios
Directing your narrator
We also look specifically at https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=the+six+tales+of+chri…
(The Six Tales of Christmas) (also available from your independent bookseller), narrated by https://www.beeaudio.com/narrator/karen-cass#:~:te…
(Karen Cass) and written by https://twitter.com/amryanauthor
(Anne Marie Ryan). Yes - it's a bit late/ridiculously early - but it's always Christmas in my heart ;-D
