Imponderables Proper the Dance: The Russian Collection
by Alex Levitch (available on Amazon and Audible)
From the author: Michael did a phenomenal job narrating my book of poetry. It was a joy to work with him – to have a true professional actor at my disposal to narrate and interpret my words – and Michael was always willing to go the extra mile to achieve the desired delivery. The end result far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Michael for his narration work.
Fauna Park Tales
by Maretha Botha (produced through ACX, pending on Amazon and Audible after sequel is prepared)
From the Author: This is my first audio book production experience and Michael Hardy – always willing to consider my suggestions – made this process a pleasure. My work was not without challenges – an animal and bird adventure series for children set in southern Africa – and required capturing the spirit of Africa with authentic and varied sounds for each character, even the human ones. His willingness to go the extra mile to produce such unique timbre has in my opinion succeeded in creating a memorable narration, which young and old will enjoy.
I look forward to collaborate with him to produce the rest of the series too.
