Author Biography

With this audio production, both publisher and author set out to create an audiobook that gave the listener a powerful and intense audio experience with the inclusion of sound effects and five pieces of original music. Working closely with the reader Gerard Fletcher, and producer Lee Pritchard, this audiobook has surpassed all expectations with Gerard’s characterization and dramatization of the story and Lee’s excellent production quality and artistic input. Try before you buy - Demos of the audiobook can be heard at the publishers website: www.2qt.co.uk

Firstly, I would like to thank my publisher, 2QT Ltd Publishing for their support and management, Gerard Fletcher for the reading and Lee Pritchard for his production and creative input with the music and sound effects.
As an author used to the written word, hearing my book brought to life with Gerard’s excellent characterization and interpretation has been a really exciting journey. Working alongside both Gerard and Lee with their professionalism and passion has been a delight. I am very proud to see my work in an audible format but as important for me, is the creation of an audiobook that hopefully provides the listener a different experience to the many audiobooks currently out in the market place, which is what I set out to do when creating this audiobook. The book is also available as an MP3 download from the publishers website.
Thank you,
Robert C Auty

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

The Siege of Scarn is book one in the Trance Warriors series written by Robert C. Auty. This book has it all: thrills, adventure, action and entertainment. The lead character was Connor, an assassin who killed the wrong man. The evil Queen was furious; however, our hero managed to escape. Along his journey he met a dwarf, Cheryl, and Janice; they assisted him in his battle against evil demons. Connor struggled to develop his Trance Warrior powers; the fate of the world was in his hands. The evil is growing stronger and only Connor can stop him. Connor goes into a trance-like state when he is fighting. He ages while in the trance, and when he comes out of it, he is exhausted. While he's in the trance-like state he is powerful. He must battle the evil twin.

Auty skillfully developed the characters in The Siege of Scarn. He gave them depth and dimensions. Auty has developed an unusual warrior, one that readers will love. His companions add great dimension to this tale. I did not want this audio book to end. I can hardly wait to listen to the next book in this series. The plot is well done with enough twists to keep this reader eagerly turning the pages. Auty is a fantastic writer. His words paint a vivid picture. From the moment I began listening to this book I was enthralled. I hope this book is made into a movie; I will be the first one in line at our local box office!
