David Goldberg; CEO, Edge Studio

"Wonderful sound and great ability to accept direction - and most importantly - to heed it."

Johnny Heller; Audie Award winner and named as one of Audiofile Magazine's Top-50 voices of the 20th Century

"Bill did a great job, is very personable, and made great adjustments. Text mapping, Audience of One, Intention, POV, and flow...nice work!"

Carol Monda; Actor, voiceover talent, and Audie Award-winning audiobook narrator

Your performance "was absolutely, uniformly superb. No, make that SUPERLATIVE."

Bruce Bortz, Bancroft Press

In this ever increasing cynical (and sarcastic world) where it's "not what you know, but who you know" – especially in entertainment/publishing – every once in a blue moon, we get lucky; and I just did. That's exactly how I felt when I heard Bill Lord's audio version of The Samaritan. Lucky for me? You bet. Truth be known, I love audio books. Frank Muller was a genius, bringing to life some of the most commercially successful author's characters. Mr. Muller passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident but other audio readers continue to fill his gigantic void. Scott Brick, Roy Dotrice (Game of Thrones), Campbell Scott, John Bedford Lloyd, and George Guidall come to mind – all are great actors, with a wide range of voices.

Then there's Bill Lord, pretty much one of the new kids on the block in a very competitive market...and I LOVE HIM. I love his work! I feel incredibly lucky to have had Bill bring ALL of my characters to life, not just the key players. I may have invented these characters, but it was Bill Lord who gave them flesh and blood, and a voice – no pun intended. Male, female, young and old, even nationality, I was amazed how in touch Bill was to every scene, every character and their fate. WELL DONE, BILL LORD!!

To Bill Lord, I say: Thank you for making me look good!!! When the second book in the series (EXECUTIVE POWER) is printed, you can bet the farm I'll be hounding you to bring my characters to life...again.
