Great news! We officially have our new narrator for the Life After Lust Audiobook project!
A big thank you to everyone who voted. There were diverse perspectives and I really appreciate your input.
I chose Chris Brinkley for these specific reasons:
1) A friend with recording experience reviewed the recordings and voted for Chris based on the recording quality. Her feedback was very specific: “Pace is fairly deliberate. Some words (“healing”) seem a little pushed. Delivery is easier, more realistic than Derek’s. More variety in delivery. Nice articulation without sounding over-done. Think he would hold attention better than Derek. Breath is edited out….I vote for Chris.”
2) Chris was the only narrator with a recorded request to work on this project, noting how he too had an alcoholic, bipolar father and felt he would be a good fit. This means a lot to me because it shows he cares. I definitely want someone who wants to do this unique project.
3) Experience – Chris is highly experienced in voiceover and audiobook narration specifically. His website states that “Chris is the voice of over 120 audiobooks currently available on iTunes, Audible, and Amazon. In 2014, he received the prestigious “Audible Approved stamp of approval and is considered among the best audio producers in the industry with a verifiable record of outstanding achievement” (click here to learn more about Chris).
In all transparency, Chris has the highest fee for narration and recording. Thankfully, my Kickstarter supporters gave above and beyond what we thought we needed which allows us to have the funds for the best talent. Isn’t that amazing?
Chris is now recording a 15 minute sample of the book for my approval and input. The estimated recording completion date is April 13, 2018. Life After Lust will be available in audiobook shortly after that!
Things are moving forward! Thank you for your support and encouragement.
