Author/Publisher endorsements Mike Kraus - Chris is a fantastic narrator to work with. He's always on time or early, delivers a quality product and my readers really enjoy listening to his delivery. I look forward to continuing to work with him for a long time to come! Bobby Akart - Chris Abernathy is the consummate professional. His attention to detail and flawless performance combines to bring my words to life. Chris puts a lot of time and thought into the different aspects of each production, communicating clearly and quickly with me throughout the process. There’s never a single bump in the road. I couldn't recommend him more highly. Just as important, Chris is truly my partner in the production of my audiobooks. Not only are his performances incredible, he spends a considerable amount of time interacting with my readers on social media. That’s the kind of team player Chris is. I’m honored to have him as a friend!
