My publisher recently asked me to record a teaser from my short stories that appear in the anthology, The EX Factor. Anyone narrate their own work before? I used some low-tech stuff (it is just a teaser, after all) and felt like the results were mixed...mostly with my own performance, I suppose.
The editor liked it and has suggested I do the first novel and the second when it is released. I like the idea, in that I know what emphasis and tone I intended when I wrote the prose. Still, I know for a fact that I am not as skilled vocally as professional voice talent (though considerably cheaper).
Anyway, just curious what others' experiences have been and what your ideas are.
P.S. If anyone is truly interested, I'll upload one of the teasers. It is in pre-production form, meaning the publisher hasn't done anything to it yet. It's just what I read, unpolished and without flourish.
