Job Description

Novelist is seeking voice talent to read the Prologue (approx. 770 words) of my new fantasy novel. It will be posted on my Face Book.

The character in this scene is a drunken 16 year old girl from a high family in 462 BC. She is a strong and proud young woman, though generally quite shy.

I would like it recorded within 1 week if possible. I have attached the full material below.


Sample from attached file:


My tale is not of harrowing fare, and please do not think me wayward to shun my fortune or my station, for they are things I never chose. But if you do not know the ways of the Human heart or how embers burn in a girl child—but are never allowed to flame—then how could you not judge me any better than petulant? I did not steal away from home in peevishness. I ran away because my uncle, the King of Nordania, offered my hand this very midsummer to a wealthy sheep farmer. And as I heard these words from my secret hiding spot in his antechamber, my heart spoke to me: He thinks you are worth no more than the price of mutton. That fat, insipid, merchant suitor only wanted to buy his way into royalty. So, in those hours before I would become property, before my uncle could pronounce my fate to my face, I stole away in the deep of night with nothing but the clothes on my back, a few coins, and a bite of cheese. But why run to Nordanshire Abbey, you ask? Nay, I did not trade one prison for another. You see, I spent four years in that abbey—from the age of eight until twelve. Despite an austere life of discipline, I have only glad memories from that place. The sisters were kind to me, and even doting at times.
