I had a really nice chat with the USA Today bestselling author, W.J. May about the audiobook, 'The Price For Peace (Royal Factions Book 1)' which I produced and narrated for her. We talk about the book, what influenced the story and the characters and how I was chosen to produce the audiobook because of Liverpool Football Club.
The Price for Peace
Royal Factions, Book 1
By: W.J. May
When 16-year-old Elise is ripped from her home and taken to the royal palace as a permanent "guest", she thinks her life is over. Little does she know it has only just begun! After befriending a group of other captives, including the headstrong Will, Elise finds herself swept away to a world she never knew existed - polished, sculpted, and refined until she can hardly recognise her own reflection.
The Cost for Surviving
Royal Factions, Book 2
By: W.J. May
The dust has settled, and the captives have finally been claimed. Elise thought the deadly game was finished, but the more time she spends in the palace, the more she begins to fear the real game has only just begun. In the aftermath of the ceremony, each of the friends try to adjust to their new life. But some are having more trouble than others. Will's perpetual defiance lands him in trouble with the queen herself, while Elise is playing a dangerous balancing act, trying to understand the affections of the prince. The man can be sweet, but also psychotic. At times, he seems to truly care - but with a snap of his fingers, she'd be sentenced to death.
The Punishment for Deception
Royal Factions, Book 3
When an escape attempt goes desperately awry, Elise and Will find themselves at the mercy of the very people who have imprisoned them all this time. Tensions sharpen, punishments are severe, and they soon discover what terrible things are required if they wish to survive. But such wild spirits were never meant to be tamed. While appearing to submit, the future princess still dreams of freedom. And as the day of her wedding approaches, those dreams begin to turn into something more.
The Memorabilia Man
By: Charlie Wood
This audiobook is a cracker. It’s got everything, cops, robbers and musicians, it’s mostly set in Liverpool. For this one, I had to perform as over forty different characters. As most of them are scouse, I used members of my extended family, friends and people I met while I was working at BBC Radio Merseyside as the inspiration for each character. I hope none of them mind, especially the ones I turned into murderers and gangsters!
