I have a 110,000-word fiction novel that I would like narrated. Voice should be smooth, and without accent. I don't have an absolute deadline for completion, but within the next month or so would be nice. Minimal voice change between mail and female characters, unless you can convince me otherwise. I certainly don't want falsetto from a man, or unnaturally low voice from a women.
I feel books with a female main character are more often better read by women, and vice-versa for books with a male character. I have asked dozens of people who they thought was the main character in my novel, and surprisingly, the results were about 50-50. The sequel is more clearly male. All that to say I have no strong preference of male or female reader.
The plot is about two men attempting to extort millions of dollars from the Mormon church. If you find this topic offensive in any way, please do not bid. It wouldn't be a successful partnership for you, or me.
Below is a sample chapter. It's not representative of anything other than my particular writing style. You don't need to submit a reading sample of this chapter, but you should certainly have samples for me to consider you.
I'd like to pay around $1,000 or so, but the free market says I get the quality I pay for, and I pay at market rates. In other words, it doesn't really matter what I "want".
I, and several other experienced listeners will assess each voice and select one based on the clarity, tone, inflection, and quality, understanding that all those things are very subjective.
