        Stephanie,

        What Mary said. Many thanks for the link to Do That Voice!

        For those new to VO: This is a real treasure trove of information. It took many of us a good deal of searching and stumbling to gather just part of what's here, so take advantage of some one-stop shopping --- and give the voices.com folks props for putting it together.

        Best,
        DH

          This is absolutely marvelous. Thanks for putting it together. I also really appreciated that 'voice-seekers' survey result which you published. I'm very happy to be a member of the Voices.com talent brigade! :D

            Excellent work on this! This is a great resource for all in the Voice Over community and very much appreciated.

              As voice over work is essentially a freelance business where you need to market yourself, I recommend

              http://freelanceswitch.com/

              It's a great site that has a lot of ideas about marketing yourself and has built a great community that is always willing to help.

                Thanks for the tremendous resource. Great job compiling this.

                FYI, for those seeking a voiceover coach, there are about 150 listed in the Resources area of voiceacting.com.

                Also, thee other books you should know about:
                1) Demo & Marketing Magic for Voice Actors - Penny Abshire
                2) The Voice Actor's Guide to Professional Home Recording E-book - James Alburger
                3) How to Get Jobs for the Voices in Your Head - James Alburger

                Thanks again.

                  Best Regards,
