Hey, look at me, doing an update not too long after I did the last one (and on a Friday to boot). So, as this post’s title suggests, I’ve been dabbling into audiobooks. Since I currently can’t print copies of The Kanta Chronicles, I figured that I should find a way to have people experience it. And so, I’ve begun hosting auditions for people to potentially narrate for me.
I’ve held off on doing this for awhile because I’ve never really liked the idea of audiobooks. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed having a physical copy that I can always consult and don’t have to struggle with rewinding if I need to reread a section. This isn’t to say that I’ve never used them before; when I was growing up, my family used to listen to A Series of Unfortunate Events on tape, which helped with boring car rides. And I hear a lot of people praising Audible these days, so to continue to spread the word on The Kanta Chronicles, I’ve decided to dip my toes in. I’ve had the audition notice up for about 10 days now and have already had about five or six auditions submitted. I’ll probably wait until I have at least 15 before I make a decision, but I’d like some help. If you guys listen to audiobooks, what do you look for in a narrator for you to enjoy experiencing the book in this medium?
