Elaine Clark of Voice One wrote an amazing book, now in its second edition, called "There's Money Where Your Mouth is: An Insider's Guide to a Career in Voice-Overs".
You might recognize Elaine as one of our experts on the Voice Over Experts podcast. If you click on her name above, you'll be taken to her profile and will be able to listen to her speak to learn more about her teaching style.
Described at Amazon as:
Aimed at seasoned actors as well as vocal talents who lack show-biz experience, this career manual offers the most complete guide to a lucrative field.
Voices are increasingly in demand for commercials, cartoon characters, announcements, and other voice-over spots. This outstanding handbook explains how to launch a career and find work. Along with sample commercials and script copy, the author gives advice on vocal exercises, on self-promotion, and on business matters, and this expanded edition includes new tips on making a demo CD; vocal modulation and breath techniques; advanced copy-reading techniques; and a section on how copywriters see the job of the voice artists they write for.
All you need to do is comment on this article and let me know that you'd like to win Elaine's book!
