When I produced my first audiobook, I had a choice to make. Do I narrate my book or do I hire a narrator.
Honestly, I would love to be the voice of my own books but as a family man with a full time job a few thoughts flashed through my mind when I got to this point.
Where am I going to do this? I have no studio or equipment.
How do I prevent my wife, 3 kids, or 2 crazy dogs from interrupting my narration session? Answer: I don’t. Snowball effect…mounting impracticality for self-narration.
Fortunately, just a few clicks on the ACX marketplace website and I found my answer. Hire a narrator!
I uploaded a 1 page sample from my ebook and literally within 15 minutes I was listening to narrator’s audition for the opportunity. It was really cool hearing people read my work. About 3 weeks later my book was listed in Audible.com
