Audiobook of Melt by Robbi McCoy 
**************** one of the fastest-growing companies specializing in audiobook production and distribution for independent authors and small publishers, is looking for a narrator to record the audiobook version of the romance novel **********************

Description: “When photo-journalist Kelly Sheffield is offered the chance to travel to Greenland for coverage of American science teams, she grabs it. Not only is it a dream assignment, it also means she’ll have a chance to reconnect with the compelling Jordan Westgate, the glaciologist studying the melting ice cap.

"Jordan hasn’t forgotten Kelly, nor has she forgotten that she’d found it hard, all those years ago, to firmly reject the inappropriate overtures from a student. This Kelly—self-assured, successful, and even more attractive—is a threat to Jordan’s equilibrium, something she simply can’t allow.

"Kelly finds the frozen landscape a match for Jordan’s chilly attitude. But Greenland is a surprising land of beauty and danger where even the iciest heart can melt.

From the award-winning author of *********************************

We are looking for a young or middle-aged female voice that can show a solid differentiation in characters without sounding too cartoony or over the top. The performance should be measured and have a relaxed pace without dragging. We prefer a very natural speech style performance over some more stylized audiobook narration styles.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
“Make a wish and blow,” her mother had said, hovering above her with a face beaming maternal pride, full of encouragement and expectation, waiting for her little darling to blow out four candles on a rabbit-shaped cake crouched on a white platter and coated in shredded coconut. Her mother had looked so happy she almost didn’t want to look away, but there was the CAKE right in front of her, a whole plate of sweet yumminess with her name on it. Literally. It was written in white frosting on a fondant carrot resting across the rabbit’s front paws: K-E-L-L-Y.

She had looked the bunny in the face—licorice whiskers, red gum drop nose and Junior Mint eyes—and blew!
What did I wish for? Kelly asked herself, trying to think back twenty-six years.

If she had known anything about how life would unfold, she would have wished for her mother to still be able to smile like that fifteen years later.

She walked swiftly over lichen-covered rock, her footfalls the only sound to reach her ears. There was a soft scuffing from the rubber-soled hiking boots, hardly a sound at all. Anywhere else, she wouldn’t have heard even that, but the silence here was so complete that if she had been standing still, she might have heard her heartbeat.

The sun was high in the sky and a delicate breeze wafted in from the bay.Everything is fine, she reminded herself. There was no way to get lost, though miles of ubiquitous gray gneiss stretched behind and before her with nothing to mark her progress. No trees. No houses. No telephone poles. No sign of life at all. Not even a bird. In the bay, stretching away from the rocky shore, the same. No boats. Just that exquisitely beautiful expanse of still, shimmering water studded with slabs of ice, all sizes, shapes and textures, sparkling like enormous sugar cubes in the sunlight.

Further out, massive icebergs lined up along the horizon like the buildings of a city skyline, stark and silent, a parade of sculpted statues in a fascinating and infinite variety of profiles. They stood like majestic sentinels, seemingly motionless. But the forms changed day to day as new ones calved off the enormous Jakobshavn Glacier and floated indiscernibly slowly toward the open ocean.

People said that Ilulissat, meaning “icebergs” in Greenlandic, was the most beautiful place in all of Greenland. That was no small claim in a land this big…and this beautiful.
