ABOUT B.C. ARCHER

White on Black.png

I am a Passionate Audio Book Narrator and Story Teller, and Singer-Songwriter, with a natural Western / Midwestern accent. I love moving the listener in ways that only a true artist can do. I have a versatile vocal range and am very articulate. I love to perform Natural, British, other European, and even Southern accents. I am particularly fond of Fiction; but with a Particular flare for Post Apocalyptic, Mystery, and Thriller, LitRPG, and even a little Romance. I would love to help you take your listeners on a journey they won't forget, or if you are an Audiobook fan; I would love to take you on a journey that you won't soon forget.  

I have loved acting and singing - since I was a small boy...  But being a loving father of three beautiful girls and a husband to an amazing and beautiful Woman - well, raising a Family and sending my beautiful Girls through college - required hard work and a steady income…  We are in a place now where I can finally spend my work time doing what I truly love - and that's Story Telling.   I've acted since elementary school.  I'm also an avid singer/songwriter, musician, and sound producer. Two years ago - my career took a wonderful turn into the world of Audiobook Narration, and I truly love it.    I will take our listeners on a Wonderful and Immersive Journey, and will do so with passion, dedication, and relentless effort - and, with a love for this art that is essential in immersive Narration.   I will create stunning quality sound and the Character that you always intended in your writing.  As a lifetime lover of literature and just plain old great stories - I understand what it means to be swept away by a story.    As a United States Military Veteran, and an Avid Outdoorsman, Mountain-Climber, and overall Adventurist - I have some unique perspectives and elements to my storytelling capabilities.   As A Business Man, I am a good communicator and collaborator -- and will manage our business together with the utmost professionalism and dedication, warmth, and friendliness.  I love Character dialogue and age and gender variations.   I’m comfortable with accents, and am a lifetime student of the art, and always endeavor to learn something new.   I absolutely love what I do, and that can not possibly help finding its way into my narrating.  

In my first two years - I have Narrated and Produced more than twenty-five Audiobooks - now available on Audible, Amazon, and Apple, and  I always have a new production in the works   Links for some of my favorites can be found below.

 

An Anecdote on the evolution of a Narrator

I remember when I recorded my first Audiobook - I thought it was pretty good.  I mean,  I really liked it, and thought - "Wow - I'm good at this."   I think the old adage is true that we hear what we wish to hear... because - it was truly awful.  When I listen to it now, I shudder.   In fact - I cringe when listening to my first several Audiobooks.   I've grown tremendously over the past two years that I've been Narrating and Producing professionally - and have worked very hard to become a fan favorite.  I sometimes wish that I could go back and re-produce my first few Audiobooks.  I have certainly evolved since then.   And like anything else - we usually get better at the things we do - the more we do them... That could certainly not be more true of me as a Narrator.  I genuinely love storytelling - and I've studied, and practiced, and learned continuously every day.  Now - today - with all audiobooks that I record and produce - I truly believe that I have found my voice - and can spin a very good tale. I hope you will not judge me too unkindly for my earlier Audiobooks, but rather, embrace, and immerse yourself into my later works.  They are truly worth it -- and know that I am ever a student and strive endlessly to tell my next story better than the last.  God Bless, and happy listening ~ B.C.

The Day America Died! New Beginnings: After the EMP

Written by A J Newman - Narrated by B.C. Archer

The Day America Died: New Beginnings
Zack Johnson has been living day by day since his divorce. Helplessly lost without the woman he once loved, he spends most days drinking to excess and chasing women for an hour or two of meaningless pleasure.
.
It seems like his rudderless life is as empty as the pile of bottles in his yard, but when rogue nations conspire to knock out the US grid, using primitive nuclear weapons to create a shattering EMP blast, the country he loves is suddenly transported back 150 years.
.
With technology all but destroyed, Zack knows that he has to stand up and be counted as the country becomes a lawless wasteland, filled with vagabond gangs and danger lurking behind every bush.
.
But Zack is 2,000 miles from home, and as the government begins to crack down and things spiral out of control, he knows he only has a limited amount of time to get to his daughter and bring her to the safety of his Kentucky farm.
.
Along the way, he will face danger like never before. But can he reach Callie before she comes to harm or is placed in a relocation camp? With the odds stacked against him, Zack will do anything it takes.

 
 

Infection: Rise of the Undead

Written by Steven Kenny - Narrated by B.C. Archer

Kenny wakes to what he thinks is just another day, but nothing could be further from the truth. Radio commentators speak about people biting and ripping each other apart, but even then he doesn’t want to believe what he hears. At least not until he witnesses it firsthand. Seeing the barman getting quartered by a mob of raving madmen, he runs and hides in a hardware store. Momentary safety turns into horror when he realizes that his wife and family are still out there, alone and unprotected. It will be up to him and his friends to save those dearest to them and seek shelter in a faraway farmhouse he knows could provide them with a safe haven. But never has a plan survived with the first contact, and neither does his.

 
 

Alien Safari

Written by Robert Appleton - Narrated by B.C. Archer

" Warning! Wildlife may be dangerous. Proceed beyond this point at your own risk.


When celebrated Omicron detective Ferrix Vaughn is called in to investigate a deadly breach on Hesperidia, a protected planet full of indigenous wildlife, he doesn't know what to expect. The place used to be a tourist attraction, but the safari tours were discontinued long ago due to rampant poaching. Only a handful of researchers live there now, including Jan Corbija, the young woman who reported the breach.


The deeper Vaughn digs, the more the evidence seems to point to a recent raid on a biotech facility in a nearby system. Whatever was stolen from there, it's attracted the attention of major political players in a time of war across the colonies. Vaughn suspects the secret is on Hesperidia, in the hands of the two fugitives who fled the murder scene.


If he wants to get to them first, he's going to need Jan's help. Her Alien Safari tour will have to reopen for this final excursion. But to survive it, they'll both need to face their demons, for a predator far deadlier than man roams the wilds of Hesperidia. And this is its killing season.


This way for the ride of your life."

 
 

Alone at the End of the World

Written by M.P. McDonald - Narrated by B.C. Archer

As a deadly virus decimates the world’s population, survivors struggle to find each other. After all, nobody wants to be Alone at the End of the World.


Thirteen-year-old Ethan should be practicing his skateboard moves, not watching his family members die, one by one. He knows he could become a victim of the evil infection at any minute. Scared and alone, he fills his backpack and goes in search of other survivors, hoping he lives long enough to find someone. Anyone.

When Cassie sees the bodies of neighbors and strangers littering what had been pristine front lawns, she realizes her intense focus on business and family may have saved their lives. How does a single mom and her two kids survive an apocalypse alone?

Noah emerges from his two-week fishing trip in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, shocked to learn that a devastating pandemic has swept the world. Should he venture into the fray to find other survivors or retreat into the woods and isolate himself as long as he can?

When their paths converge, they face a new struggle ─ learning to trust total strangers as if their very survival depends on it... because it does. Sympatico Syndrome is intent on sparing no one.
