Narrator Interview: Cassandra King (Chain Reaction (Nite Fire #2) by C.L. Schneider) ~ #Excerpt #AudiobookTour


A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?

Absolutely! Voice acting is, at it’s core, acting. Being an actor helps you to not only understand emotion, but be able to portray it properly for others to see. Especially for voice over! A lot of times we gauge emotion by facial expression, but when you’re listening to an audio book, you don’t get that luxury. The emotion has to sound real and authentic and that takes training.

Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?   

I love to listen to audio books!  I like to read the physical book first and then revisit it later in audio book format.  I love that it gives me the ability to step back into a world that I love, yet also allows me to multi task and do other things.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of narrating an audiobook?  

My favorite thing is always diving into the world and getting to portray different characters.  The character work is always fun and different for each individual. Finding out their quirks, their sound and their attitude is always exciting and interesting.  Least favorite – editing. Hands down. A tedious, but necessary evil. I have a lot of respect for editors! 

What about this title compelled you to audition as narrator? 

The genre is right up my alley!  I purchased the books before I even knew I was going to be narrating them.  The story sounded cool and Dahlia really sounded like a great character. I love doing work for books I am passionate about.

But the lines are blurring. As people begin mutating and combusting on the streets, Dahlia realizes a strange affliction has descended upon Sentinel City. The mysterious ailment strikes all walks of life, from the posh high-end nightclub district to the homeless community. Its victims, driven to random acts of savagery, are drawing attention too fast to cover up.

Assigned to the case, Dahlia and her human partner Detective Alex Creed investigate the deaths. But all they have are questions, bodies, and a public on the verge of panic. Working behind the scenes with her self-appointed sidekick Casey Evans, Dahlia struggles to discover what, or who, is behind the alarming transformations.

As the violence spreads and the mystery unfolds, she wonders: Are the victims still human? Were they ever?

Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire series.

i think it’s cool that the author bought the books before knowing she was going to narrate them. 🙂
