Job Description

ABOUT ME: My name is Matthew Acheson and I am a member of the Horror Writers Association - with 12 short stories published to date. I love stories that make my heart race, chill my blood and coax the hairs on the back of my neck to stand at attention. I prefer strange plots with hairpin turns and protagonists whose trials leave them broken, damned, deranged. These stories remind us we are alive.

PROJECT SCOPE: I am commissioning voice actors to read all of my published short stories, so that I can make them available in audiobook format on my website,

This particular project is to hire a voice actor to read my most recently published story, The Final Meeting of the Truth Society, and record it in .mp3 format. If the project goes well, then there is an opportunity to record 11 other stories in coming weeks.

AUDITIONS: I would like everyone auditioning for the project to read the first 1/2 page (139 words) of the script and submit that as a sample.

AUDIENCE: Readers of horror, science fiction, and fantasy.


ARTISTIC DIRECTION: The first five pages should be read with a lighter tone, but when the narrative switches to first person the tone should become darker and more grim. I prefer that characters be read to sound differently, but this is not required.
