    I think this voice-over book will be like a memorial. It may have the last written word and foreword of Don LaFontaine. I think every voice-over artist should have one for their library just because of him.

    It will have a highly appraised autograph from two that look as if they have had many successful firsts. I think for Ms. Thomas being the first to announce The Oscars, The Tonys and The Emmys all in the same year is very, very impressive. I hope to have the same goal for myself one day.

    As I can see from the e-mail, the schedule of events did not include Chicago. I would have loved to have met them in person for their autograph. Is it possible that it is in the future?

    The couple has missed great people like Sherry Berger of Voice Over U; Darren Stephens, sound engineer for my first demo, that works with The Acting Studio; Jeffery Lupetin, voice-over teacher and consultant for The Acting Studio and good recording studios in Chicago like Radio City Recording. They could have come out and supported a good book for their next session or voice-over class.

    If not, I hope to win a copy of "Voice For Hire" through the giveaway on the blog Vox Daily.
