Em's place

Writing, anxiety-wrangling, tea.


My most recent work are the audio books of the Split Worlds series which I recorded for Brilliance Audio.

I have recorded flash fiction, short stories and novellas for several authors directly, in multiple genres, including these for Iambik Audiobooks:

Sci-fi novel Fall From Earth by Matthew Johnson

Sci-fi time-travel thriller: TimeSplash by Graham Storrs

My own short story collection: From Dark Places

Historical romance: The Lady Soldier by Michelle Styles and Kate Allan

Romance: Storm’s Heart by Rachel Lyndhurst

Stories recorded for Dark Fiction Magazine

Steampunk novella: The Devil in Chains by Adam Christopher (nominated for a Parsec Award)

Paying For Rain

A Study in Flesh and Mind

A Brief History of the Great Pubs of London

I recorded an extract of a Harper Collins novel “Shine” for the author which can be played through the audio widget on this page.

Here is a link to a story I recorded for fellow writer Adam Christopher called “Nine Ladies Dancing“.

One of my own stories (recorded by me) was featured on Shadowcast Audio.

There is also a sample story you can play directly from the bottom of this page.

Would you like me to narrate something for you?

Fancy having your story produced as a professional podcast? Perhaps you’re an American writer who wants to hear your story in a British accent, or perhaps you’re a British writer who hates the sound of your own voice. Well, I could record it for you. I am based in Somerset, England, and have recorded for clients in America, Australia, Denmark and the UK.

You retain all rights to your story, and there will be no promo for my services at the end, just a “Story X, written by Lovely Author, read by Emma Newman” line at the beginning. If you want to tell people where to find me after they’ve heard it, that’s entirely up to you!


For a professionally recorded and edited narration of your story, in MP3 format (or WAV if you prefer):

500 words or less: £10

500 - 1000 words: £18

Short stories up to 4,000 words: £50

Short stories over 4,000 – ask for a quote.

Audio books: I have worked directly with published authors and also with small presses. Contact me to discuss your requirements and I’ll send you a quote.

If you’d like me to record a story as a gift for a writer, that’s fine too!

The sample story is “Wicked Witch For Hire” by Katherine Nabity.
