Audiobook Overload! Ahhhh!
That's what freedom is all about.
The ability to choose is our sacred right.
I get that.
So why is it so stinking overwhelming!!!
Now that my book is published in both hard copy and ebook, I thought it would be good to turn it into an audiobook as well.
And then ...
I was presented with my list of options.
Who knew there could be so many?!
Do I want a male/female voice?
Should the accent be American (7 variations),
British (17 variations, not counting Irish),
or even Caribbean?
(Ha! Listening to a World War II escape story from a voice sounding as if it's vacationing in paradise, should liven things up a bit. I can hear it now...
"Cho! Put dah guns down, man!")
After I choose the accent, there is the question of style. Should the vocals be velvety, raspy, spooky, perky, hip, sheepish, or perhaps wistful?
These name just a few of my options.
I can't seem to find the choice for "normal reading voice" anywhere.
Maybe if I just keep scrolling...?
And then, a friend recommended I do my own reading.
Hmmmm... yet another choice to consider.
Is nothing easy?!
