Book narration excerpt 700 to 800 words 
The goal of these excerpts is to attract visitors to the book's website and to mailing list members and create interest in the book during the final stages of writing i develop a platform prior to publishing.

The voice actor I want will be a storyteller with a warm, and somewhat contemplative voice since this is a memoir. The main character in this scene is a 24 year old man, though narrative bits can seem older and wiser. The girl in the scene is in her early twenties and open to interpretation.

The context of the scene is a time when everything in the protagonist's life seems lost, but there is a resiliant optimism, a sense of rebirth as well, so attitude varies between seeing what comes next to regretting things remembered. If it helps to think of a particular actor, perhaps James Franco, intelligent if a bit scattered and occasionally clueless.

No particular accest is necessary, though the scene is set in the Midwest (Indianapolis, Indiana) in 1965. Only minor inflection needs to indicate the girl's voice in dialog. From here, the interpretation is up to the actor. I'm availble to ask any questions at all.

There will be voice actor attribution at the beginning of the excerpt following the title - "as ready by (voice actor's name)".

Script Details

Custom demo required 
I'd made some friends on the assembly line at RCA, especially with a pretty, shaggy-haired, red-headed girl with striking gray-green eyes named Rita. She seemed interested in me, and that felt new and easy and good, but also complicated. We'd lunched together with other co-workers before, today though, we sat alone at a Formica topped table in the plant cafeteria. Maybe Dave's recent calls from California had been what prompted me to tell her about our vocal group.

"You said you used to sing with some guys, but you didn't say you were in a actual band." A light dusting of freckles across her nose and under Rita's wide-set eyes gave her a perpetual, slightly surprised expression. Her freckles crinkled when she smiled, a girlish quality I thought was cute. She started work on a small bowl of soup while a half a ham sandwich and a plate of potato road kill masquerading as French fries waited their turn.
