This week, the audiobook of The Smallest Thing went into pre-production. I am trying (and failing) to contain my excitement, but honestly, I cannot wait to hear Em and her story come to life. The person who’s going to make that happen is Charlie Sanderson.
Charlie is the voice over artist who’ll be narrating The Smallest Thing. I knew from the second I heard her audition that she was the one. She captured Em’s attitude perfectly, and really brought to life the characters and personality of the village. Wait until you hear her Mrs. Glover.
While Charlie has a talent for accents, Em’s voice won’t be too much of a stretch for her. Charlie was born in Yorkshire (like me!), grew up in Derbyshire, and went to school just a few miles away from the real-life village of Eyam. Really, it was meant to be.
You can find out more about Charlie’s work at her website, charlie-sanderson.com. You can also find on her Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Just be warned: she is Dog-mum to a very cute black lab puppy, who is a natural for the camera.
I can’t wait to share samples of the early chapters from Charlie. Meanwhile, here is the new audiobook cover for The Smallest Thing. It will be available later this summer.
Every month, from now until publication, I’ll be offering my newsletter subscribers the chance to win pre-launch copies of the new audiobook. If you’re not yet subscribed, click here. You’ll also get some free readable goodies and news from me once or twice a month. Good luck!
