The Audio Publishers Association reports that many people get audiobooks when they are traveling. With Thanksgiving a couple days away, you may be thinking of picking up an audiobook for your trip, and, as an audiobook narrator, I applaud your wisdom! 🙂
If you would like some help in making your selection, you will enjoy reading Stephen King’s recent column in Entertainment Weekly titled Hail to the Spoken Word in which he listed his top 10 audiobook recommendations. The discussion from readers is equally lively.
While I record in my studio, a fascinating post on Sarah Weinman’s GalleyCat blog titled An Audiobook In the Making described the audiobook recording process to the world. Sarah takes us all behind-the-scenes with her to a studio session of Jonathan Lethem recording part of the audiobook version of his new novel YOU DON’T LOVE ME YET.
By the way, if you’re interested in audiobook work, I cannot recommend too highly Pat Fraley’s audiobook class. He has another session scheduled in Los Angeles on 2-3 December. If you contact him about it, please let him know that I referred you.
If you’re an American, I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving on Thursday. I give thanks that I am married to the love of my life, live in this great country and can do voice-over work for clients around the world from my home!
