About

Hi, John Gregory Hancock here: I'm an author with my own special style of writing. I let the stories come through me and i get out of the way. Many have enjoyed reading my work, but I made a discovery: some of my stories become elevated to another level when read aloud. Especially when read aloud by a professional narrator.

And I've found the perfect professional voice actor to read my series, Dreamwood Tales. I listened to some of his demos, and then I asked if he would consider auditioning snippets of three of my stories. His Name is Jon Caruth. If you want to hear his entire audition from my stories, here it is: 

Now here's where you come in: I need to pay him to record the books. he's agreed to charge 800 per book. I have two books, so far, in the dream wood tales series, but I'll be writing more. So I'm hoping to raise the first 800 dollars, for now. If we exceed that amount, I'll use it for more volumes and marketing.

If you liked Jon Caruth's voice, he can be hired by looking for him at www.acx.com

If you're curious and want to check out my books, go here: www.amazon.com/John-Gregory-Hancock/e/B00B8ECQMW

Here are some examples of my illustrations that are inside my books, that you have a chance to get for donating:

Risks and challenges

Potential challenges would only be scheduling. Jon Caruth is a busy narrator, so things would have to fit into his schedule as well. Other than that, the books are already written, so there's no other obstacle I can think of.
