Who tells your story?
Bringing words to life
As a professional narrator, I'm a reader, interpreter, performer, messenger... I bring an author's words to life in a very personal way.
In addition to performing both female and male characters in a wide range of ages, I am also experienced in accents including: American Southern, British BBC, Irish, Australian, New Zealand, German, Spanish, Italian, Middle Eastern (Israeli,) Hebrew, Yiddish & Eastern European
Here's what publishers & authors have said...
"I'm SO impressed with [Amanda's] versatility." - Tess Thompson
"Super talented" - Nick Pirog, author
"Really captures the essence of the story vocally"
- David McCaffrey, BNBS Publishing
Audio Production Services
As an audiobook producer, I can manage all aspects of creating a high quality audiobook that will be submitted directly to a distributor (such as Spoken Realms or ACX.) This is a more economic route than working with audio production companies. Here are the services I provide:
- Perform Narration for an hourly rate paid per finished hour of audio (PFH)
- Provide professional audio engineering by a respected industry professional.
- Make all audio files available for review before submitting to the Distributor
- Publish audiobooks through either Exclusive or Global Distribution
- You collect royalties on every sale of the audiobook in perpetuity.
At your request, I'm happy to provide references for whom I have produced audiobooks in the past.
My vision is to work in partnership with authors and publishers to produce a narration that captures the essence of each story and brings it to life for the listener. To ensure that my work is of highest professional quality, I partner with sound engineers that have extensive experience producing audiobooks. There are links to audio samples that are representative of both my style of narration and the quality of sound production that I offer.
If you are interested in forging a partnership or opening up a dialogue, please email me with your inquiry. If requested, I am willing to record a three minute excerpt of any text for your consideration. After a contract is agreed to, samples will be sent as the recording process begins to assure that my presentation of the text represents the author's vision.
Financial transactions will be agreed upon and processed through a publisher, distributor or intermediary such as ACX, Findaway Voices, Blunderwoman Productions, or Spoken Realms.
