Today we are happy to share Emma Calin’s latest cover for her soon-to-be-released novelette Love In A Hopeless Place. The book will be out on Amazon in Kindle and e-book format at the beginning of June.
We received a lovely email today from the author of “101 Tips on How To Be A Bouncer” – Mr Darren Lee. He has now received his finished audiobook – narrated by our very own Oscar Sparrow and seems very pleased with the result.
Not being shy about blowing our own trumpet… we our proud to share his testimonial with you:
Thanks Darren! Needless to say… we are all walking round with big grins on our faces.
Great news, the audiobook for Darren Lee’s 101 TIPS ON HOW TO BE A BOUNCER is now finished and is available FREE with every Kindle copy purchased.
It lasts around two and a half hours and was recorded by Oscar Sparrow, in his firm but friendly South-London accent.
You can find out what Oscar thinks about the book and also hear an audio sample on Emma Calin’s blog where he is doing a guest post today.
With over 670 ratings on Goodreads and 5 star ratings on Amazon we knew we were in for an interesting story and we were not disappointed. It is a cracking mystery adventure with an evil villain, a noble quest, forbidden love, passion and romance all developed in a fast moving plot.
The recording has been a challenge as the authors requested that the Gentleman should have an upper class accent and the Rogue, as a young cockney sparrow should sound as if he comes from a lower class London background. This seemed very reasonable and the authors loved the audition we sent them.
When we read through the book before starting the recording we then discovered that there are actually 15 other characters plus the narrator - a young girl, servants, footmen, landlords, a doctor and a magistrate to name a few! We have had a lot of fun placing all their accents and characters – and even more fun keeping track of them so that when they appear at different times in the book they are consistent. All in a day’s work for narrators and editors!
The main audio is now almost complete. Then it’s over to the editor for processing and checking. This audiobook will probably last over 9 hours when it’s complete so it takes many hours of painstaking work to edit it all together, get rid of any strange noises (tummy rumbles before lunch and ‘oinks’ after!) as well as final polishing to blend it all together.
If you need to read it before the audiobook is out (end of May 2013) you can find it by clicking here: The Gentleman And The Rogue on Amazon Worldwide (NB. Explicit erotic content).
We are pleased to announce that we recently fought off the competition and snatched the contract to create a most unusual audiobook for Mr Darren Lee.
He works in the security sector and is a successful trainer. He has written a great manual for nightclub workers and security managers which is available on Kindle. Having an audiobook would provide another medium to deliver his message and reinforce his training program.
The author felt that British English would suit the subject – in particular a London accent with a bit of an edge. Who better than our Oscar Sparrow to audition for this role? Darren liked Oscar’s chatty, informative style and common touch and awarded us the contract to record and produce his audiobook. We have recorded the text – it is now in final polish and production phase and we expect it to be finished by the end of April.
