Who Wants to Be an Audiobook Narrator?


http:///on/who_wants_to_be_an_audiobook_narrator_118995.asp?c=rss

Ever listened to an audiobook, and grumbled, "I could do that?" A new contest will give readers around the country a chance to try it.

Until June 30th, aspiring audiobook narrators can submit three-minute demos to audiobook maestro Scott Brick, vying for a chance to win work as an audiobook narrator. To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of Brick's audiobook work, the producer is sponsoring a Share The Experience contest.

Here's more about the contest: "The winner will receive personal instruction from Scott, followed by actual recording work from a number of major publishers. The judges will include representatives from some of the biggest publishers in the business, including Random House Audio, Audible.com, Harper Collins Audio, Books on Tape and more."

Hahaha thanks Amy. :) I actually have no voice-over experience. It's a different skill altogether. I've thought about taking some classes though. There is MAD money to be made in voice-over work.

I bet you have an amazing reading voice, harmony! You should audition for this. And should you win, I request a finder's fee! ;)

Oh that sounds like lots of fun! I LOVE Jim Dale. He does the voice over for all the Harry Potter audio books. He was also the narrator of Pushing Daisies. May she rest in peace. :(
