Recording Your Audiobook, Part 2: Performing

BookWorks

04audi600spanLast week we showed you how to go about setting up a home studio for recording your audiobook. Now that you know where to record, we’re going to show you a few tips and tricks you need to know when you do record.

Remember, when you read aloud, you’re not just trying to get the words right – you’re trying to perform the book for your audience. If you drone on in a lifeless monotone, your readers are not going to be as invested in the story as they would be if you read it dramatically and with life in your voice. Of course, if you’re not confident in your vocal abilities, you can always hire a narrator/producer using ACX!
