Audio books are becoming more and more popular, and for the listener, it is a more personal experience to hear a book read by its author. Tanglewood works with nationally acclaimed voiceover talents daily and knows what works! The author brings passion and the authenticity of their written word. It is important to capture that passion clearly, in full fidelity, adhering to industry audio standards. And it’s important for the author to be able to focus on their material, undistracted, so that all the nuances of the message can be captured. We encourage authors to practice reading their work out loud, before they come in to the studio. Rehearsal and repetition give the author a comfort with the process of delivering their message aurally. Your editor becomes your partner in the process, acting as a second set of ears and to catch anything that might otherwise slip by unnoticed. With the right preparation and a great coach and editor on the other side of the glass while recording you, too, can do it!
