Project Main Details

9 Hour Historical Fiction WWII Audiobook 
Looking for a male narrator for a per hour project. The WWII historical fiction novel is just about 92,000 words. The rate is flat based on the expected 9 hours of audio.

Audio will need to be submitted as first-round proofed and edited- our company will take care of mastering and finishing. Our company will proof the audio and send back a list of corrections (read errors) to be made. Our company will take the corrections and splice them into the audio.

Talent will be expected to participate in a conference call with the production company and author for initial notes and direction. The first chapter will be reviewed prior to the talent getting the green-light to record the remaining chapters.

We are looking for experienced talent that can work professionally under a deadline, is familiar with transferring files online, and can take direction well. Please no first time talent.

Script Details

custom demo required 
My good friend Barry Fortune was a successful business magnate, crony to the president of the Philippines, and renowned internationally throughout the business world--a world as distant as possible from mine in academe. Barry refused to allow our old friendship to wane. He maintained casual but continual contact through an occasional Christmas card or an invitation to a family event, such as a daughter's wedding, or by sending a newspaper clipping of one of his exploits. During those early years of establishing himself in the Philippines, he "gifted" me with a few shares in one of his enterprises, a brewery. At the time, contrary to a prior resolution, I lightly accepted them since they were of little value then. The shares have since multiplied substantially, yielding considerable and steadily increasing income.

The presidential suite was elaborately appointed although it was wasted on me, a confirmed Spartan. First off I tried to reach Barry by phone, succeeding only after penetrating several layers of protective staff.

"Hal, it's absolutely wonderful hearing your voice. You sound exactly the same," he said excitedly.

"And so do you, Barry. So do you. Is it possible neither of us has aged over the past forty years?"

"Well, I certainly haven't," he chuckled.

"But I have," I said. "I must learn your secret."

"Don't give an inch, that's all," he said. Although in his early seventies, his vigor and drive showed no sign of abating.

"Ah, my friend, I can't wait to lay my eyes on you again," I said. We had not seen each other since I left the islands at the age of twenty-two when we were Seabees. During the long interim we had rarely corresponded, for Barry disliked writing letters, especially personal letters. I last saw him waving from the dock at Subic Bay while I stood in the throng of sailors high on an aircraft-carrier deck. He had shouted above the din, "Everything I have is yours, but don't expect me to write."

"I'll be back," I hollered in return.

Barry's voice in the phone interrupted my reminiscing. "My chauffeur will pick you up at seven."

"That will be fine," I replied.

"We'll have dinner, just the three of us. She's dying to see you," he said, she being his one and only wife of many years.

"Same here," I said. "Is she as beautiful as ever?"

"Hal, more so, positively more so. She won't give an inch either."

"Yes, I remember, that's how she was," I responded cheerily.
