The similarities between narrating Horror and Romance

Updated: Oct 25, 2022

Horror is incredibly satisfying to narrate. I love curating an intimate atmosphere for listeners and building up the suspense through dynamic pacing. Horror is all about tension and it just so happens that this is one of the main elements in a good romance audiobook as well.

Whether the MC in a horror novel is hiding under the floor boards listening to someone's footsteps creak above, or an MC in a romance is holding their breath while being slowly undressed...the tension lives in between the words on the page. In intimate scenes like these every word hangs in the air and if we're doing our job well as narrators you will be on the edge of your seat waiting to devour whatever the author throws at you next.
