Current Goal – 2023 Fan Art Contest Prizes

Current Progress Toward Goal – Updated February 28, 2023
The deadline for this goal is September 30, 2023. After this date, this goal will update to the 2024 fan art contest.
Next Goal – Audiobook for The Beast Hunter
Description: Ever since I wrote my first Keltin Moore story, I’ve dreamed of having a professional voice actor narrate my books. While it may take a while to reach this goal, I am willing to wait to ensure that the final product is the best possible adaptation of my most popular novel.
I will use the Findaway Voices network to audition and hire a professional voice actor and audio engineer to record, edit, and process a complete audiobook version of The Beast Hunter: A Keltin Moore Adventure to be released on as many audiobook platforms as possible. Findaway narrators’ rates are based on the total finished hours for a project, and can range anywhere from $250 to +$500 per finished hour.
Using the Findaway Voices rate calculator, I was able to determine the following specifics:
Manuscript length – 80,000 words
Estimated cost per completed hour – $300
Calculated range – $2,475–$2,925
Averaging the calculated range together, I determined a final, estimated total cost of $2,700.
