Acting : Voice for Audio Books by Denise Baer

Denise Baer

Voice for Audio Books

I have a few novels published and I've wanted to make them into audio books. Since I don't have the equipment or the proper voice, I was curious if actors who are starting out do narrations for audio books.

I've looked into Audible and such, but the costs are steep. Just wondering if anyone does it at low cost and exposure.

Any and all comments are appreciated.

Audible allows you to do a "profit share" option where there is no upfront payment, but you each take half of the profits.

You can offer a low PFH on there as well.

You are unlikely to get a worthwhile audiobook offering "exposure". The equipment, skills and environment all have associated costs.

Consider it an investment in your book!

I do audio tapings and voice work, you can check out some of my voice over work in some of my stop motion animations on my stage 32 page, let me know if that helps. Good luck!

Alexander, as stated, I know all about Audible, which is why I was asking about low-cost and exposure here since I'm an Indie author.

Karim, I went to your profile and found one video, but there wasn't any audio. Thanks for responding.

Alexander Doddy

Denise, as explained, Audible IS a low cost option.

Karim Davis

Don't know what's going on there, here is a link to a movie where I did all the voice acting:

Fiverr.com is also a good place to nab some very inexpensive and often quality voice over work.
