Wow. Things are moving right along. After listening to quite a few audition tapes, I found one reader I believe will be perfect. The tone of her voice is exactly what I wanted, and her southern accent isn’t over the top. So, I made her an offer, and she accepted. I just sent her the manuscript, and the next step is that she will record the first 15 minutes of the book, and submit for my comments, suggestions, and approval. Once we’ve covered that, she’ll read the rest of the book, and submit for my final approval. At that point, I should only be looking for small mistakes. We should be able to iron out everything else from the first 15 minutes.
I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it. Will keep you posted as this process continues.
