International Adventure Assistant Needed – Is That You?
Right now I’m auditioning narrators to turn my most recent thriller The Devil You Know into an audio-book.
It’s very exciting and I never knew there were so many talented people out there. Obviously every author will have their own specific criteria and in my case I require someone who can deliver an authentic Scots accent and even with this strict stipulation there are lots to choose from.
Most of the top quality guys are also actors – who knew?
This means that the lead times for these audio-books will be long and so I don’t expect the first one until next summer. But if it works out then I’ll hopefully transform all of my novels into audio-books!
If you want any tips or contacts then please get in touch! it’s a fascinating world!
All of this got me thinking that Ridge Walker could probably do with an assistant or two. I mean he can’t keep on expecting his poor wife to risk her life again and again can he? Not now they have a family.
There would have to be some (deadly) strict requirements however and probably NOT the usual sort of thing you’d expect to see on a resume!
So, if you think you might fit the bill and have the following skills and attributes then get in touch and soon you might be an international hero jetting off & saving the world!
- Pulling Ridge Walker out of dangerous international situations at the drop of a hat
- Communicating with foreign nationals without being able to speak the language
- Have an ability with a variety of weapons
- Be a fervent fan of the beautiful country of Scotland
- Not have met an alcoholic drink you didn’t like
- Be able to work without supervision, leadership or even a clue what is going on
- Have a scant regard for the practical workings of ‘the law’ anywhere in the world
- Be drop-dead-gorgeous, male/female but untouchable (he’s been there-done that..!)
- Having several passports / identities would be a bonus
So there you have it!
Previous applicants need not reply, all applications will be treated with the utmost contempt etc etc..
This second Ridge Walker novel is also available in print form here
Enjoy your reading and writing!
