Mary Jane Wells is a UK voice talent and performance transplant who brought the audiobooks that inspired the award-winning series Downton Abbey to life. With another 11 audiobook projects being published this year, and a world class entertainment career behind her, Mary Jane will be an expert panelist for The Digital Author and Self-Publishing Conference this Sunday, October 13th, 2013.
The conference is a full weekend focused on the new paradigms for authors in an increasingly digital world. Workshops, inspirational sessions, and focused panels will be attended by professionals representing every genre and level of the industry.
A member of the Writer's Junction, and currently in the process of writing a play, Mary Jane will be speaking about the trust process involved in the construction of an audiobook. Mary Jane will explain how, as a writer, you can best choose the right narrator to voice your imaginative world. "My hope for the event is that writers get the support and connections they need to further their work to spectacular new platforms, especially audiobooks," Mary Jane reveals. "This conference is very specific, very current, and has high-level experts and representatives who can be approached in all strata of the digital publishing world."
Mary Jane joins Stefan Rudnicki, Gabrielle de Cuir, Roxanne Hernandez, Dean Sluyter, Jessica Kaye, and Christian Rummel on the New Revenue Streams for Authors from Audio Books panel.
A writer of the highly successful adaptation of Virginia Ironside's The Huge Bag of Worries, the voice of the television commercial campaigns for Eharmony, Puma, LinkedIn, Think Finance and Jet2 Holidays, and has voiced many documentaries, animations, and videogames, Mary Jane brings a unique, varied insight to the audiobook space.
Her advice to the creative professionals who dream up, write, edit, publish, and record the stories? "Create with the heart, build with the mind: collaborate with both. Creative strategy is not a solo sport."
