Have you ever wondered what a deadly former assassin sounds like? Or a Russian mobster? Or a Thai smuggler?
Listen to the Devil’s Due audio book and you’ll find out!
As a writer, I’ve been lucky enough to work on a variety of projects… Marketing copy, promotional reels, screenplays, even comic books. But adapting my prose to audio was a new experience for me. A great experience, as it turned out.
Using the Amazon ACX program, I was able to audition several narrators for the book. As soon as I heard the deep, gravelly voice of Bryan Anderson, I knew I had found my Caine! Seriously, give the free sample a listen. He captures the dark, brooding world of the story perfectly.
Some interesting facts about Bryan: He is an FAA certified airframe and power-plant technician. He has visited or worked in 43 of our 50 states (Not sure about US territories…) And the man can rock the hell out of a cowboy hat!
Working with Bryan was a blast. But translating Devil’s Due from the page to digital audio was not without challenges. It’s one thing to write about Thai dishes such as Yam khai khem or Pu pad prik pao… It’s another thing to figure out how to pronounce them!
But Bryan was a trooper. He put in the heart, soul, and hard work to make sure everything was right. (And as always, any errors are mine and mine alone.)
Bryan’s wife Sonya even got into the act, and voiced some of the female characters. Hearing them bring Caine and Naiyana to life was a true pleasure. I got to experience the story all over again, in a new way. When Caine and Pisac finally confront each other, Bryan’s voice sent chills down my spine! I had to keep listening to the end, even though I wrote the thing!
If you’re an audio book fan, or if you’re just curious to hear what Thomas Caine might sound like, please give Devil’s Due a listen!
