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.
