After an unavoidable delay, I realized just a week out from a new novel release that I hadn't completed a crucial piece of the marketing: the book trailer. So I quickly did my part (the video and animation) and looked for a striking and appropriate voice to accompany the thirty-second marketing video. I was very lucky to find James Smillie, and in 10 minutes I hired him for the job, not expecting to get the work immediately ... but his response time was incredible, and he was more than willing to work with me to get the right character take for the trailer. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome! -- Rachel Caine, New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and #1 internationally bestselling author of the smash hit Morganville Vampires, Stillhouse Lake, and The Great Library series.

New York Times

James has a rare talent for bringing voice work to life. Having directed voice talent for several years, I could not ask for a more gifted and professional collaborator - Nick Miede, Co-Writer and Director of Child of the '90s for Microsoft (50 Millions Views).
