As this episode is released, I’m off to Kansas City with my wife to attend the Independent Audiobook Awards there. I was honored to have my audiobook Accidental Thief, narrated by Roberto Scarlato, nominated for the GameLit category. I’m in some pretty august company there and I’m looking forward to meeting up with my fellow authors some amazing book narrators while I’m there. Win or lose, this trip is going to be a huge win for me.

Roberto Scarlato is a Chicago native who worked a variety of odd jobs before someone told him to get into the voice narration game after hearing his rich baritone voice. Since then, he’s narrated books from a multitude of genres, including some amazing fantasy books.

Both Anneliese and Roberto are nominated for awards this year so let’s take a look at what it takes to narrate a good fantasy audiobook.
