Project Main Details

Audio Book Salem VI Rebecca's Rising 
This is an audiobook project. The eBook is scheduled for release on July 19, 2012, the print and audio books are scheduled to be out in September 2012.

The book is Salem VI: Rebecca's Rising and is a paranormal, thriller, based in Salem, Mass. We are looking for the right male voice and do not require a New England accent, unless the talent is originally from that area. This is the first book in a trilogy, so there is future work on this project.

Book Synopsis
Having stepped off the fast track of primetime network television news, John Andrews has chosen a quieter life as editor of The Salem News, a small paper in a quiet New England town. Life is perfect until Andrews’ wife is killed in a tragic accident. After several years of trying to numb the pain with alcohol, Andrews is visited by the spirit of a long dead ancestor who opens a door to a shocking family history. After he experiences a surreal glimpse into the past, Andrews must confront the question of whether he is losing his mind or whether for several hundred years his ancestors have been engaged in a secret battle with a coven that worships Satan. Fueled by the need to understand whether his wife's death was an accident, as he had always believed, or something far more sinister, Andrews, along with his beautiful assistant editor, risk everything to discover a truth so horrifying it threatens to destroy everything and everyone he knows and loves.

Script Details

Here is a link to prologue and first chapter of the book:

Please read a few paragraphs and submit for consideration. 
THE MAN STOOD IN THE SHADOWS, SHIVERING, rocking from foot to foot to keep his Toes from freezing and watched his breath whiten in the cold air. It was only mid- October, but up here in Vermont the unseasonably frigid night felt like January. Across the street the lights of Davis Hall burned through the clear air and reflected a dull glow off the frost-rimmed grass.

The man checked his watch. Nearly four a.m. Most of the college kids seemed to have turned in for the night because the vast majority of the room lights were off. The man didn’t care about most of the kids at all. He cared about one single kid, in room 321, and he didn’t care about him in the way a parent might. He cared about him the way a risk management specialist cares about looming liability. The kid wasn’t a problem yet, but the man knew he had the potential to become a big problem. Nobody knew exactly when it might happen, but according to people who knew more about this than he, the kid had begun to glow with awareness in the past couple days. It was way too early. It was pure luck that somebody with the ability to see such things had spotted him and gotten word back to Salem. Awareness didn’t normally develop, if it ever did, until much later in life, but if people said it was happening now, the man wasn’t going to argue. As a self-defined risk management specialist, his job was to nip problems like this in the bud.

He looked again at the window of room 321. It had been dark for two hours, and he knew the room’s three occupants were totally dead to the world. He’d made sure of that because earlier that afternoon, dressed as a University of Vermont janitor, he had picked the lock on their room and injected their pony keg with a little mixture of his own, a concentrate of dissolved sleeping pills that would put them down deeper than the alcohol ever could. The whole point was to make sure they were sufficiently unconscious so the smoke and heat could
