'Ran across the following listing on a website that matches freelancers with people offering work.  30755728
I won't say what site, but it WASN'T V123 or Voices.

It WAS a shockeroo and an insult, though.

What people think voice actors should accept as pay for good work is astounding!

Title: Male Voice Needed for Audiobook Recording

I have a 200 page book that I need to be converted into an audio book.

The book is written in an easy conversational and entertaining style, so the voice must match.

Since this is written in my voice, I can only accept bids from North American male talent that can speak without a noticeable accent – similar to the national news anchors.

The final draft of the book will be completed by June 27th and the audio book project must be completed within 2 weeks after delivery of the finalized book.

I have attached a draft of Chapter one of the book so that you can see how the book is written and get a feel for word count. I estimate the total word count to be around 62,500 words.Estimated Budget: Between $250 and $499
Expected Delivery: Within 2 weeks of project award


62,500 words!!!!  < $500

My recent bid for voicing an audiobook of 40,000 words in length was over $5,000, and I thought I was low-balling!
