Personal recommendation from Dan O’Day:
If you're interested in voicing audio books (aka "audiobooks"; either is correct), Barbara Rosenblat is the person you want advising you.

She's the undisputed Queen of Audiobooks.

One critic nailed it when she said, "Barbara is to audiobooks what Meryl Streep is to film."

These are some of the questions Barbara answers in detail. 

it realistic for a beginner to expect to break into audiobook work?

How do I get started?  

What percentage of producers/publishers hire a voice over talent who works from a personal studio vs. going to the producer’s or publisher’s recording studio? 

If you record an audio book at another studio, do they direct you?

For how long do you record per day — and do you do it sitting down or standing up? 

When narrating a book with many characters, is it necessary to develop distinct voices for each character, as Jim Dale did with the "Harry Potter" books, or is it sufficient to indicate a change in speakers within a scene by changes in pitch or inflection?

How do you keep track of multiple characters in the book, especially when you need to remember a character who reappears from Chapter One and you're now on Chapter 15?

How much acting should you put into portraying the characters (including the narrator) in an audiobook?

In doing a few books from my home studio, my biggest challenge has been maintaining consistency from one session to the next. How do you manage to sound as if you recorded the entire book in a single take?

What do you do to prevent vocal fatigue during long recording sessions?

I've been hearing that the proper way to interpret audiobooks is to refrain from inflection. Have you found that to be true?

What is the best length for an audiobook demo?

I’ve been told that audiobook demos should be without music. Correct?

To whom do I send my demo?

How do you quote for your time? Hourly? By chapter? Number of words?

How much money could I expect to make in the audiobook niche?

Is there a great need for voice talent for audiobooks that are not character-driven, such as self-help, other non-fiction, and audiobooks?

What is the best track to reaching a point of voicing the top books?

Are there smaller publishers who are more inclined to use unknowns/voice actors who are new to the field?

Is it 100% necessary to reside near the primary locations where audiobooks are recorded? That is, if you're not within driving distance of wherever the sessions are held, do you really stand a chance of being selected as talent? 

Who are the decision-makers (buyers) in this industry?

How do you connect with the decision makers for audio book narration?

Who should I contact in Europe in order to expand into recording English-language audiobooks?

Running Time: 2 Hours, 20 Minutes

Immediate delivery! When you submit your order, you’ll be able to download this valuable voice over audio seminar immediately.  

Barbara Rosenblat has voiced more than 500 audiobooks. Her extraordinary range and abilities have earned her eight Audie Awards from the Audio Publishers Association — accumulating more Audies than any other single narrator. In the words of one critic, “Barbara is to audiobooks what Meryl Streep is to film.”
