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.
I’m still also laser focused on the upcoming release of Cyber’s Escape, book 2 in the Sapiens Run Trilogy. I’ll be promoting the first book in the series over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for special offers associated with Cyber’s Change (book 1).

Today on the show, in honor of the audiobook awards tonight, I decided to bring you a chat with two of the best fantasy narrators out there. Anneliese Rennie is former NPR PBS FM radio host/announcer in a major media market. She has a background in opera and can present in English, Italian, German, French, Latin.
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.
