Tales from the Microphone…
This is an exciting time for me! I’m at the launch pad ready to send my voiceover rocket ship into space and I couldn’t be happier!
If you’re reading this, my very first blog post, welcome and thank you. This blog will focus on a little bit of life, some fun mixed in and lots and lots of voiceover.
I’m very excited to report that I have in front of me, my first ACX contract for narration services. If you have ever thought about narrating audio books, ACX.com is a great place to start. It’s the audio book “division” of Amazon so needless to say, there’s a lot of clout behind it!
Audio books are exploding right now. Sales overall of audio books increased from 2013 to 2014 by 13.5%. But check this out – by 2015, that increase went up to 24% so it’s clear that as people get busier and busier, they are utilizing audio books to entertain them in traffic, on public transport and at home.
Now I won’t enter into the debate about whether or not “listening” to a book is the same as reading a hard copy of it. I think enjoyment is the key. And in today’s busy world, people may be able to learn and experience more through audio books then ever before!
I don’t want to “spill the beans” about the title that I’m recording until it’s ready for primetime, but as soon as it’s available, I’ll let you know…
