This group is BUSINESS...where are the jobs today that pay narrators? Who has these jobs? What are the sources we might contact with a demo to get narration jobs? Sure, we can talk about narration techniques too...
A thought from Bettye.... You are entering the PUBLISHING INDUSTRY. Learn about it!
You must have a killer audio book demo to get paying work in this field especially from PUBLISHERS. You also must separate jobs you do on your own in your home studio from voicing for publishers, often in their studios. When you read for publishers, the pay is better and you often don't do the audio engineering. Mostly, they prefer readers in their own studios. The audio book jobs advertised on the online pay to play sites are usually from vanity publishers or the authors themselves or for other reasons...not publishing house jobs. Know the difference. And get used to the fact that audio books usually pay for THE FINISHED AUDIO HOUR. How long will it take you to get one finished audio hour that is perfect? That depends....could be two studio hours could be twenty studio hours with you engineering and voicing it too! Be very cautious on your price bidding.

KICKIUM IN THE RUMPIUS
"ANOTHERUS JOBUS" works for me .. your Latin is impeccable.
ANOTHERUM JOBUS ;o)
On a more serious note .. I recently put together a set of sample book reads and covered Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen, Anthony Trollope and a couple of non-fiction technical items. The feedback I got was to keep the technicals and replace the classics with more modern items. Part of the reasoning was that clients are likely to be wanting to hire for a modern piece and will probably want to hear modern idom. I didn't get a result for that one.
Best regards all.
Excellent group idea!
