We're giving it away this week, so if you've been waiting to read this fabulous book, now is the time to put your name in the hat.
Comment for a chance to win!
I had the opportunity to review You Can Bank on Your Voice by Rodney Saulsberry in January of 2007 and highly recommend this book to all voice over professionals, particularly those who are fresh in their careers or are aspiring to join the fray.
Click here to read the review of You Can Bank on Your Voice.
Published in 2004, Rodney Saulsberry's book (covers all aspects of getting started as a voice-over talent coupled with well chosen vignettes from his own career to entertain and inspire.
While the book was literally brimming with useful information about getting started, setting up a home studio, growing your business and taking care of your voice, I'd like to mention the three elements that stood out the most to me.
These elements were:
à¹ Rodney's storytelling capabilities
à¹ The attention given to the importance of relationships in the voice-over business
à¹ A comprehensive guide on how to interpret copy for commercials, tags, promos, trailers, and legal tags as well as hard sell / soft sell reads and so on
In addition to the core content, Rodney includes several appendices covering copy samples, vocal exercises, and resources as well as an extensive glossary.
Just comment on this blog posting and let me know that you'd like to win!
