Project Main Details

Audio Preview for books 
We are creating a new book marketing service for authors and publishers. A select book passages will be read by the VO talent while we add background music/sound effects/visuals to enhance the experience. You can see our recent sample work for the author, Laurie R. King at:

For this audition: The VO talent must be able to add “acting” to the reading rather than providing a straight read. The script passages are meant for a young adult female, approximately 15 years old. The voice should be youthful and dramatic, yet should also have regal tone to it as she is a royal princess from 13th century, Japan. There is no need to add any accent for authenticity purposes.

Thank you so much for considering this project!

Script Details

I tried to move toward the sounds of the chaos, but my foot lodged under something bulky that was on the ground. I tripped and fell on top of a person; it was Senza.
The fog remained thick and murky, but I could still make out the shimmer of Senza’s embroidered sash and the white pattern of her outer garment. I knelt beside her and shook her gently.
There was no reply.
My hands reached over to touch her face, but there was nothing beyond her shoulders. Her face was gone. Her head was missing.
I felt a thick sticky fluid on my hands, Senza’s blood. A small whimper escaped my lips, as I retched again and again. I vigorously ran my hands down my garment to wipe off her blood. 
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.
