I know, I only just announced the arrival of Dark Capital, but an hour or so after sharing that news, I found out that another of my new audiobook offerings is now available on Audible, so I thought I would just share the news of my most recent audiobooks this way: whether you’re interested in a dark ghostly tale of 1820s Edinburgh (Dark Capital), a collection of supernatural Scottish tales (More Strange Scotland), a medieval story of political intrigue set in Scotland (Crown of Dust), or a horror story about what happens when you deprive someone of sleep for too long (The Sleep Experiment, which is not set in Scotland, just to show that I do not only narrate in Scots). And I do still have a few codes for anyone interested in a free Audible download.
Very happy to share with you my newest audiobook performance: Dark Capital by Helen Susan Swift. This is the third in a series of supernatural tales from Helen, this one set in 1820s Edinburgh and moving between the Old and New towns, as Dr. Martin Elliot struggles with his own will–and his sanity–when an old staff he finds in his new home in the capital of Scotland seems to imbue him with supernatural powers … and a lust for cruelty.
I had a lot of fun narrating this tale, set in a city I dearly love, full of dark wynds and hidden closes and phantoms from a murky and sinister past. I hope you’ll give it a listen. Available at Audible at https://www.audible.com/pd/B092MXN9NP
And if you’d like, here is a brief sample to listen to:
Today I completed production on my audiobook for Dark Capital by Helen Susan Swift, and I have to say, this was a real pleasure to record. I feel I have been very fortunate in my audiobook productions, being hired to perform novels that I really love from Laya V Smith, Suzanne Rogerson, Zach Abrams, and Malcolm Archibald, among others. I first encountered Helen Susan Swift when I listened to the audiobook for her The Malvern Mystery, which was a lot of fun to listen to, so well narrated by Melanie Crawley. I had no idea at the time of listening to that fine mystery that I would get a chance to perform Swift’s Dark Capital, set in 1820s Edinburgh and inspired by the legends of the twisted warlock Thomas Weir. It was the perfect blend of mystery, supernatural, dramatic, and sinister. I loved it! I hope you’ll give it a listen when it comes available on Audible (probably in a month or so). In the meantime, here is a SAMPLE you can listen to to whet the appetite.
