Recent Release: Seven Tales (of Blood and Beauty) by Wayne Kyle Spitzer

Audiobook narration is something I really enjoy. As a voracious reader and sometimes writer its pretty obvious that I love a good tale. Within the genre of audiobook narration for voiceover talent, I have a special fondness for anthologies and short story collections. Which brings me to a recent release on Audible that I was… Continue reading Recent Release: Seven Tales (of Blood and Beauty) by Wayne Kyle Spitzer

The Weekly Aesop

For a little while now I've been making a weekly recording of one of Aesop's Fables. I've mentioned this before. The main purpose is to both allow me to have some fun and variety with my warm-up for the day's voiceover session, and consider some of the morals that Aesop's Fables impart.

Fortunately, I have enough to keep me busy. Not least of which is this very quick narration (under a minute). It's from Aesop's Fables; The… Continue reading Narration Sample: The Crow & the Pitcher

Voiceover Dispatch, September 13th 2017

Voiceover Dispatch; September 13th, 2017 I'm a few days into the audiobook production of a novella, and that has me thinking about the things I enjoy about long form narration…and some things I don't. One thing that anyone who has recorded an audiobook for eventual purchase knows that, pardon the cliche, it's a marathon, not… Continue reading Voiceover Dispatch, September 13th 2017
