Project Main Details

Fire Mage Audiobook 

Fire Mage is the first book in a four-book Blacklight Chronicles epic fantasy series that I am pleased to be bringing to audio book. The series has sold over 70,000 books and I've recently re-written and expanded Fire Mage and published the Kindle and print book updates on Amazon. Fire Mage appeals to young adult and middle-grade readers, as well as fantasy book addicts who devour books in the genre. I'd like start with the first book in the series, Fire Mage, then likely use the same narrator for the other four books in the series.

The books are quite popular in the UK, and also has the most readers in the US, hence the desire for a British accent narrator with a youthful, engaging voice. Fire Mage has over 42,000 fans on Facebook and I have over 1,400 followers on Twitter. I am an avid Audible reader and can't wait to bring my books to the format.

Regards, John Forrester

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
Talis searched the steamy swamplands for prey, hoping to make his father proud, no matter what the cost. His father's words echoed in his mind, “Your brother hunted big game when he was twelve.” Why did his words stain his mind like ink on a page? His brother had hunted with a team of men and merely managed to bounce his spear off a deer. Talis was thirteen now and though he'd tried, had been spurned by every hunting trip his father's men had pursued. Lad, don't want you dying like your brother, you're the last son of the Storm family lineage, and all.
Finding nothing all day, he scanned the muddy ground for tracks, kicking away needles and sticks. Off to the corner of his eye he spotted an indentation in the wet leaves. He strode over and bent down, flipping his hair away from his eyes for a better look. A thrill raced through him at the sight of fresh tracks. He raised his head and studied a sloshing stream blanketed with a soft mist, and squinted at a path illuminated by the four moon sisters. This was his kill.
“Did you find something?” said Mara, his best friend. She wore sage-green hunting pants and a ridiculously frilly white lace top, why, he had no idea. She was funny like that. As she came alongside, she raised her big brown eyes in concern, and glanced at the tracks. She chewed a cinnamon stick and frowned.
He grunted in response and pointed a short spear with a menacing, curved blade at the stream. This was his hunt and even though he'd failed to even bag anything as big as a deer, he swore he'd do anything to bring it back home to father.
Mara shook her head, the movement stubborn and terse, her short, brown hair slashing along her neck. “It's too late. I'm serious, don't look at me with those oh-please-Mara eyes of yours.”
“But the prints are fresh, an hour old at the most—”
“What are you trying to prove? We've been out here all day and my ass is sore from sliding down that stupid muddy hill. I'm hungry, irritable, and want nothing more than to eat a slice of peach cobbler, steal a mug of ale, and prop my feet up and feel the heat of the fire. Besides, I'm not going to let you get yourself killed doing something stupid as hell like hunting in the dark.”
“Don't be angry.” He flashed her the look he knew always made her smile, and gazed into her devilish, incredibly-cute amber eyes, hoping to convince her. But it didn't work this time. She set her jaw firm and scowled at him. He tried a different approach and lowered his voice until it was as soft as a cat's purr. “Listen, we can do it…can't we try just one more time?”

“It's your father, isn't it? You think he's going to instantly respect you if you bring back something big? He doesn't really see you the way you deserve to be seen. Ever since your brother died…”
The wind stung from a sudden cold gust and Talis sighed, wishing she hadn't brought up the subject of his older brother's death. He cursed fate, cursed his family's bad luck, and memories flooded his mind of his older brother Xhan. His arrogant, youthful expression. A cruel death in the desert.
