Today, as part of the Renegade blog tour, I have Kerry Wilkinson on the blog being interviewed by the narrator of the Reckoning audiobook, Kat Rose-Martin.
The voice of Silver Blackthorn interviews her creator
For various reasons, I probably listen to more books than I get the chance to read. I love audios and am often on Audible looking for things to add to my wishlist.
Reckoning, which came out last year, is told from a first-person point of view, so when I had the chance to audition potential narrators, I was literally listening for the voice of Silver Blackthorn.
It's a very strange experience hearing other people read the words you've written. As a writer, I remember where I was when I wrote certain lines or came up with plot points. A good narrator makes or breaks an audio and when I heard Kat Rose-Martin's (https://twitter.com/katmartin92) audition, I knew she was the right person for the job. She is Silver, so much so that, when I was reading back the final draft of Renegade, there were points when it was Kat who was in my head.
Reckoning is out now on Audible (http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/Young-Adults/Reckoning-Audiobook/B00QQSCUKS), with Renegade following in a few weeks.
As part of its release, Kat has taken the opportunity to ask me a few questions about the series in general:
