On the positive side, I like everything else he has done. Even though I know the story inside and out, I get a kick out of listening to it. The characters really come to life. There are a total of twenty-four chapters, so we are about half-way there.
There will be a final review. Currently, I ask for changes in pronunciations, point out missed words or sentences, ask to shorten gaps of dead space between sentences or paragraphs, and that's about it. It appears to be in the narrator/publishers hands for the most part. It would be my recommendation that during the audition process of choosing a narrator that you ask lots of questions. And if you can afford it, you might consider the hourly rate. It can range from $50-$400 per finished hour. Try to find a narrator willing to collaborate with the author. My narrator was chosen because his voice seemed to fit well with the genre and, not the best reason, he was available immediately. Since I have essentially accepted my current role, things are moving along nicely.
I'll continue to post comments as the process continues. Please check back.
