We encourage you to voice your books. You are an expert on your subject matter and have almost certainly spoken in public. Your voice is a familiar aspect of your brand. But we can all use a little help sometimes!
The ‘narrator voice’ is a little different to your public speaking voice – more confidential. It’s a private exchange between you and your listener. Intonation, pausing and inflection are important elements in conveying your story and maintaining the listener’s interest for many hours at a time.
We have an expert audio book narrator of some 20 years experience. In addition to narrating, Richard Aspel is a patient and accomplished actor, writer and voice coach.
The following is an audio excerpt from his international award winning narrative of: “Can’t Buy Me Love: The Beatles, Britain, and America”
Richard provides some fascinating insights into his storytelling career here…
