Little wonder, then, that audiobooks are finding a resurgence (thanks in part to new, enabling technology). It’s in our genes.
A wonderfully-written article breaks-out the reasons to a deeper level. It’s called The Mind’s Ear.
Still not convinced that this may be a possible outlet for your talents? Then try this article: The Coming AudioBooks Boom (Sept. 2011)
Ready to get started? This quote is probably a good reality-check: “…Go home, go to your bookcase, shut your eyes, reach out, and grab a book. You don’t get to choose. Take that book and sit somewhere quiet and small, like a closet, and read out loud for three hours a day. If you have any stumbles, back up and start the sentence again. If you hit a word you don’t know how to pronounce, go look it up. Do that for three hours a day, for two weeks, and then, if you’re still interested, give me a call…”
See the entire blog article I wrote which included this quote: R U VO Enuff?
If you’re still interested, sign-up for a weekend audiobook workship with Pat Fraley sometime.
