Project Main Details

Unabridged audio book narration of "Persuasion" by Jane Austen. We require a natural British female voice. Total running time of the project is approximatley 9 hours. Narration files should be recorded in 44.1 KHz .wav format, and delivered via FTP. Would prefer delivery of an individual file for each chapter.

Final product will be sold as a downloadable audio book on and iTunes. Narrator will be given full credit for their work on this project.

Completion deadline is flexible, but would prefer the narration to be finished on or before October 30, 2009.

Please provide a fixed price quotation for this project which includes delivery of the narrated and edited files. Price should also include narration corrections, if during our review process we find any errors in the final narrations. Corrections can be made by re-recording just the sentence that contains the error.

Alpha DVD has completed approximately 50 classic audio books to date, most of which are sold exclusively through and iTunes. We are planning to release approximately 30 new products during 2010, so there is an excellent chance for additional work after "Persuasion" has been completed.

Script Details

Sample script provided for auditions:

Jane Austen

Chapter 1

Sir Walter Elliot, of Kellynch Hall, in Somersetshire, was a man who,
for his own amusement, never took up any book but the Baronetage; there he found occupation for an idle hour, and consolation in a distressed one; there his faculties were roused into admiration and respect, by contemplating the limited remnant of the earliest patents; there any unwelcome sensations, arising from domestic affairs changed naturally
into pity and contempt as he turned over the almost endless creations of the last century; and there, if every other leaf were powerless, he could read his own history with an interest which never failed. This was the page at which the favourite volume always opened:


"Walter Elliot, born March 1, 1760, married, July 15, 1784, Elizabeth, daughter of James Stevenson, Esq. of South Park, in the county of Gloucester, by which lady (who died 1800) he has issue Elizabeth, born June 1, 1785; Anne, born August 9, 1787; a still-born son, November 5, 1789; Mary, born November 20, 1791."

Precisely such had the paragraph originally stood from the printer's
hands; but Sir Walter had improved it by adding, for the information of himself and his family, these words, after the date of Mary's birth-- "Married, December 16, 1810, Charles, son and heir of Charles Musgrove, Esq. of Uppercross, in the county of Somerset," and by inserting most accurately the day of the month on which he had lost his wife. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
