Samantha's Voice

Welcome everyone,
Promotions, like any political campaign, involves constant tweeting and posting and the line between tasteful and outright spam becomes filament thin.
I've tried to offer a variety of excerpts along with graphics in order to breathe a bit of life to my novel The Gaze.
However, to listen to a character in our heads is one thing, but to actually listen to their voice...

Just hit play and you'll see what I mean.

The lovely Kaye Vincent is the author of the English Romance The Treeman, a fun read that touches every emotion as the pages take you through the lives of an array of memorable characters. When I asked her to read for an audio sample, her excitement was contagious.
I have heard Samantha speak (sometimes scream) to me while writing her story, but I never thought one day I'd hear a real vocalization and I'm still wondering if I was indeed the one to write the story.
I hope you've enjoyed this little excerpt. I know that novel like the back of my hand, but I'd give anything to have every page read by Kaye.

On a personal (yet quite public) note to my good friend Kaye Vincent, you did a phenomenal job of giving Samantha a voice, and I shall be forever grateful for your time and dedication. You're the best!

Check out Kaye's novel The Treeman by clicking on her cover or you can find her at http://www.kayevincent.moonfruit.com/ to learn more about her and her work. You will be impressed.

PS: Don't forget: The Gaze can be downloaded for free over a period of 5 days starting this Friday the 25th for FREE on Amazon Kindle 

I hope you've enjoyed the excerpt. I know I'll be listening to it a few hundred times more, and that's just this week.

  1. That is so cool, Javier. Perfect voice to read The Gaze, too. :)

    1. What a feeling... And I can only imagine how hard it must have been at first. Kaye did an awesome job. It totally left me wanting for more

  2. Awesome Javier! Perfect voice! :)

  3. It was such a pleasure to do this for you Javier. Your words made it so easy to find meaning and I am deeply humbled to have been asked. Thank you. Samantha is quite a girl and I hope I managed to get somewhere close for you and your fans.

    1. oh, you'd be shocked to learn how often I've heard "that's exactly what I thought she would sound like!" I wish I could unhear it and play it again for the first time just to get those chills on my arms when you read the last few lines. That giggle when she calls herself a masochist was GENIUS!
