There can be no better way to learn about the art of being a Storyteller than by listening to the Master Storyteller herself. A brilliant introduction to the joys and challenges of the audiobook narration.

Respect!

Have been an audiobook book fan since 2000 and a Lorelei King fan since discovering Charley Davidson and First Grave, back when it was the only Grave book! In Storyteller, Lorelei and Ali pull together how they, and so may others, do what they do, to bring to life the stories we enjoy.
Not just for those interested in becoming an audio book narrator, but for anyone who enjoys a good listen and have ever been curious how it’s done.
