Narration Services

Hi! I'm a hybrid author and audiobook narrator/producer. I have over ten years of experience with voiceover and commercial work. I'm also a musician and vocalist. I could tell you more about me, but as an author myself, I know you're probably most concerned about what I can do for you, so let's cut to the chase:

  • When I take on a job, I produce the audiobook quickly - typically around three weeks for 80-90,000 word novels

  • I give high quality, consistent audio files that will easily upload to Audible/ACX (because we all know, they're the most picky)

  • I work hard to bring each character and novel to life and will make sure it's true to your vision, not just mine. This is a collaborative process, and I will keep you updated and informed each step of the way

  • I'm a good communicator and conscientious/detail oriented. You won't ever wait more than a day before getting a response to questions or concerns

  • I am thorough in my recording and meticulous in my editing. Your files will be delivered proofed and ready to go. If you'd like to be involved and listen to each file, I welcome your involvement! If you prefer to hand it off and then post your files to ACX, that works too :).

  • I am careful to only take on projects I feel are a good fit so I can give them the full attention and energy they deserve

Hiring a narrator can be stressful and often feels like a leap of faith. I hope I can make that process easier and less nerve-wracking! I look forward to working with you!

Process: Email me at cindygauthor@gmail.com for pricing and include 300-500 words if you'd like me to prepare a sample/audition of your work. This is not required, but I'm always happy to provide them! If you like what you hear, we will discuss fulfillment dates, you will pay a $500 deposit to secure your spot, and fill out an on-boarding form (with audiobook credit and character information) and contract. Let me know if you have any other questions!
