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
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. This week I… Continue reading The Weekly Aesop

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
