Some of my recent audiobook releases under my pseudonym Amelia Hugh (Click here to view my audiobooks on Audible):
"Amy has been amazing to work with! When I first set out to have my books narrated, I hadn't taken into account the 12 very distinct accents that needed to be mastered. After countless auditions that came up short, Amy took this project on and absolutely blew me away.
She took time to research each accent and proper pronunciations so that every scene felt authentic. Her narration was seamless, making the listener really feel the tone of every scene. She's narrated 4 of my 600+ page books and I don't believe I've had a single critique or edit to her work.
I couldn't have had a better experience and will always use Amy for my narration."
When they put audiobook narrators on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Amy Hutchins deserves to be on it! With so many readers embracing audiobooks nowadays, I knew I wanted to make my books available in audio format. What I didn't know was that I would have so much fun doing it.
Amy was exceptionally professional and thought of absolutely everything, truly bringing my fantasy world to life. Her communication and attention to detail was top-notch. She even caught errors that had made it past proofing in the print versions. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I can’t express enough how wonderful Amy is to work with for audiobooks! She’s professional, thorough, and helped me navigate my first productions with ease. Her studio equipment and proficiency made the process extremely easy.
As for her vocal talent and performances, she is truly exceptional. She used a variety of accents and voices for my young adult fantasy series and my standalone contemporary romance. Her voice just flows between the characters and narrative, keeping listeners fully emerged in the story with engaging inflections and tones for each character’s personality, bringing it all to life.
She has the skills and talent to level up any audiobook experience! Five stars! Highly recommend.
