Narration & Production

My fully produced narrator package includes:
  • one half hour phone consultation to establish author directives and scheduling (free of charge)
  • first fifteen minutes of narration is proofed by author and change to directives established if necessary
  • once the author has signed off on the proof, the Narrator records the raw audio data file
  • the raw file is edited for pacing and removal of unnecessary breaths and sounds
  • retakes are performed by Narrator if necessary
  • raw file is mastered to remove things like plosives (strong consonant sounds) and white noise, equalization, normalization, etc. to improve the sound quality for listening at long periods of time
  • once the author approves the sound quality, the file is properly distributed
  • a snippet of the recording is created for marketing purposes 
    (Note, snippets are required by most online retailers and aggregators.)
  • one half hour follow-up consultation to discuss the project is free of charge
The package provides you with a polished, professional retail-ready audiobook in formats and file sizes required by all of the leading retailers and includes a sample audio snippet.   The Narration and Production Package rate is calculated per finished production hour with a two hour minimum.  Call for a rate quote; 440-941-6131.10,000 words of text = 1 production hour
