Here's a bit of a plug for my recent Young Adult Adventure audiobook: Kirkus Reviews star-winner BLACKHEART'S LEGACY by Sally Copus! Enjoy! #Lotsofaccents
While I've always taken pride in my accent work, and tend to narrate books with a large ensemble of characters and multiple voices, many of them tend to have the same dialect (English, Scottish, American variations). Here, though, the adventure comprises a vast number of characters from all over the world. Everywhere from the USA to Scotland to Jamaica to China is represented. (Don't worry, no offensive stereotype voices here.)
It was a joy to narrate, and I'm just listening back to Audible's final commercial version; audio quality sounds nice. Although aimed at 11-to 14 year-old audience, it's really a lot of fun for adults as well.
