When I finally got off my butt and started looking for a narrator for Ghosts of Tomorrow, I knew exactly what I wanted: Male. American. Gritty voice.
I posted the book on ACX and received several excellent auditions. I was very close to picking one when Rosa Watkinson messaged me asking if she could audition. Always willing to try something different, I said sure.
You can imagine my surprise when Rosa, who isn’t male, has an English accent, and doesn’t have a gritty voice, turned out to be perfect.
What follows is the Prologue of the Ghosts of Tomorrow audiobook – out early April 2018 through Audible (grab a copy here if you’re a paper and card person: link). I hope you enjoy it!
A little bit on the narrator
R. B. Watkinson, raised on mythologies, legends, and tales from around the world, has an affinity with fantasy, but she has an eclectic taste so reads broadly in all genres. She worked as an editorial secretary, has taught in special educational needs, acts, and sings. She loves to write too – a lot. After completing a Diploma in Creative Writing at Oxford University, she began the Wefan Weaves Trilogy. The Cracked Amulet, published in January 2016, was long-listed for the David Gemmell Morningstar Award. The audio version came out in February 2017. The Fractured Portal should be out this year. Now, she is a narrator too – and loving it. The fact the book is so good makes reading Ghosts of Tomorrow easy and great fun.
