Next up… my first audiobook

Provoked-JC-Audiobook.jpg

I am getting pretty excited about the audiobook of Provoked! It’s going through quality assurance at ACX right now so will be out very soon…

The narrator, Hamish McKinlay, is a native Scot with a fantastic range of Scottish accents (yes, there is more than one, lol!). This was a huge – and very difficult to achieve – priority for me given that nearly every character in Provoked is Scottish. I love the voices Hamish has used for both well-educated, lower class David and aristocratic, anglicised Murdo. Murdo’s accent in particular was a difficult one – maybe non-Scots won’t even realise how authentic it is, but regardless, it will remain a source of joy to me 

The other thing I’ve realised – or rather, that’s been brought home to me once again – is how, um… earthy my sex scenes are. I’ve been biting my lip and squeezing my eyes shut through listening to these scenes. It feels very exposing, having your own salty words performed with such relish. Oh, those rolled-Rs!

Anyway, I’m hoping audio readers love this and will be doing a giveaway in my newsletter as soon as it’s up.

    I loved Provoked and now really want to hear those accents! Do you have plans to do the rest of the series in audio?

    I’m so excited for it (and the whole series) now. Even though I personally wouldn’t have an ear for the Scottish accents, it so important to get all accents right, for the readers who will know. Your words definitely deserved all the care and attention they could get, and I’m thrilled I’ll be able to reread them again soon through Hamish’s narration.

    That’s fantastic news! I would love to review this for AudioGals (www.audiogals.net). Please feel free to email at reviews@audiogals.net when it’s available 🙂

    I cannot wait to get it and excited to hear all the different characters as accents differ all over Scotland. I don’t always understand everything people say in different parts of Scotland and i was born and brought up in Central Scotland.
