Ghost River Audiobook Audition

Calling Female Audio Performers/Narrators! We’re looking for you!

We’re excited to announce an open casting call for the audiobook version of Chad Ryan’s “Ghost River.”

We’ve decided to bring this groundbreaking horror/magical realism novel to Audible and other retailers in 2021.

But first, we need to find the right voice for the denizens of Orphan Rock!

Here’s what we’re looking for…

  • A female narrator (this is non-negotiable) with a smoky voice, reminiscent of Lauren Bacall/Barbara Stanwyck 
  • Characterization is KEY, the cast is unique (and the drivers of the story) and should be acted out more than read
  • A narrator comfortable with elements of extreme horror and dark subject matter (here’s the content warning)
  • The narrator must have the ability to produce studio quality material & recordings
  • Voice acting and narration experience is a BIG PLUS

Compensation Terms…

  • We are looking for a royalty share arrangement (50/50 split)
  • A “Per Finished Hour” rate may be negotiated, not to exceed $100 dollars

 How to submit…

  1. Select portions of Ghost River (chapter one is available for free here)
  2. Record a brief sampling of your work
  3. Submit to “” with the subject “Ghost River Audition.”

 Audition Tips:

  1. Characterization is critical! Esther, Minister, Liz need to shine through and feel real, not read.
  2. Avoid overly polishing the narration: Ghost River is a book about being IMPERFECT w/heavy slang
  3. A bit of a twang in your vocals will go a long way bringing the cast to life!


Submit them to “” with the subject “Ghost River Audition.”

Good luck to all who audition! We look forward to hearing you!
