    I read your review on this book with the link provided. I enjoyed it (among many other of your reviews of books, very helpful) very much. In this economy we have to keep our dreams alive and KNOW we will make it in such a career that is competitive, lucrative but most important FUN!!

    I feel the book has what it takes to help us voice actors ( what ever our current level of knowledge/experience is) make it.

    Thank you Randy, Peter and most of all voices.com and the vox daily!!

                    Count me in too Stephanie .. I'm a huge fan of Peter and his coaching techniques for voice ... I met with Peter during the writing phase, and I personally can attest to the amount of work that went in to the book. A true labor of love!

                                              thanks for the informative review. Would love to get the book! Am at a place where the information would be valuable, as I am rentering the arena after not doing voice overs for about 11 years. Still have a great voice, just don''t know the new technology that well yet. Some but not enough to actually record thru my computer and submit audtions. Then to be able to record a job and send it back to them.

                                              Thanks for entering me!

                                                    I bought a copy when it first came out. Great read, fun and informative. Love the stories from Randy about reading live for the TV shows. The included DVD was excellent, like being in one of Peter and Randy's classes. While I have my own well thumbed copy - please do include me in the drawing. I just took a first class workshop with Deb Munro and, if I win, I'd pass a copy onto one of the young up and comers from Deb's course.

I was so impressed with the subject matter that I gave copies as Christmas presents to two V/O friends.

It has provided excellent information, links and encouragement that have helped in preparing for a career in this industry.
                                                                                                                        I have been building a small home studeo and have a target of making this a primary income for me.
                                                                                                                        The opportunity to read Randy and Peter's book would really help my in acheiving my goal.
                                                                                                                        Take care and please keep Vox Daily coming into my email box!!

With a more direct-on approach to voicing over and on its prospective industry, this specific, straight-to-the-point kind of information is really just what we need. Can't wait to get started working. But first, I sponge in as much well-worth knowledge I can to make the most of every recording and every audition down to the very business transaction. Thank you again for this well of opportunity.

I'm a long-time fan of the site, and now a first-time commenter. What can I say? The prize is too tempting to ignore! I always enjoy voice-over books that feature personal stories and anecdotes -- so much more satisfying than straight instructional stuff. But 'Voice For Hire' sounds like it's got both. Can't wait to read it!

I left a job after 25 years on my terms and I am now pursuing dreams that I refuse to let stay buried inside of me. I've always been told that I have a great voice. Along with pursuing a career in voice-overs and broadcasting, I'm going to see what happens, no "I'm going to make what I want....happen." Also, thanks for the valuable information you provide through Vox Daily.

I began my acting career just 3 years ago, almost accidentally & found my passion. I am having the time of my life. I'm one of those who have been told my entire life that I have a great speaking voice. I would love to get into doing voice overs. I have had one audition for a vo & got the booking. I would be honored to get the book, start getting vo work as a result of putting its contents into practice & then write (or record) a glowing testimonial.

My voice career is a little stalled right now, and I need to get started again. This book would get me going and headed towards success.

                                                                                                                                                                          Right now, I need work more than anything else, and voice work has had to take a back seat. With a book like this, I could get that demodisk done and headed towards someone who could make my name in voicework. I'd like that so much.

                                                                                                                                                                          If I can win a copy, sweet! If not, I'll trace the links and get myself a copy. Many thanks, and hope I'm lucky.

                                                                                                                                                                                            Thanks again for some great information! This book by two very successful voiceover artists sounds like the epitome of help to all of us in the industry. The volume of knowledge appears to be very in-depth and provides us with most of the answers to questions that we have all been wondering about for years. As a somewhat new individual in this business with some experience, I know that there is a lot I don't know about it all. I think that this new book is a definite must read!! Please add my name as a hopeful winner to this thoughtful work.

Whether you are a newbie (such as I) or one with years of experience. There is always something more to learn about voice over. I don't know if there is any part of the industry that shares it's knowledge and offers to help all of us such as voice over artists do. I appreciate each and every way we can help each other. I have not read this book, but I know that if I did, it would be of immense help in developing my career. Thank each and every one of you for sharing.

If you say it is a must read then it must be. I have been wanting to get a copy of the book and I would love to win it from Voices.com!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Personally, I think it's a fantastic thing to be able to receive books, DVD's or what have you on the subjects of voice over, or the successful people that are making it happen. Before I got involved in anything voice over, it literally took me years to research anything on the subject at all. At that time, there weren't any books and/or literature on the subject and any of the professionals that were doing it, were afraid of their own jobs and/or careers to share any of this knowledge. That's one thing I do enjoy about voices.com. It's not just a matter of being a lead generator (which some people) call it, but it's got more information about this business than you can shake a stick at. I don't know in heaven's name what is wrong with some people. There's nothing wrong with having as much help as one can get. It's fantastic that the professionals in the business would even take the time to write a book, send out blogs and podcasts and tell us newbies what's in store.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          One thing I admire about people like the Don LaFontaines is this: If you ever notice, the people that are really successful at anything, are humble. They don't sarcastically put down newbies, (we all have to learn), and they don't tell us that they're too good to accept certain jobs. They just do what they do. Hats off to all the humble artists and professionals (you know who you are). The ones that have a lot to say in a boastful way, are probably not as successful as they think they are.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Anyway, Love the site, love what you're doing, and looking forward to many years to come.

Besides, in this biz, if you are not voicing, you better be practicing and continuously learning and honing your craft. Lastly, if you walk away with at least 1 "new" idea, technique, experience, tip or bit of advice.....then it's all worth it!

Other than having a demo tape made with a bonafide producer, (who said I did well) I have done nothing to introduce myself to the necessary people in the field.

You pitch it so effectively I can't leave reading it to chance. If I should win, please give it the the runner-up.

My question is will it help the VO actor in Seattle who don't want to move to the big city? I find very little material around for the small city VO actor who just wants to work from his home studio but still inspires to do this bix full time.

Hopefully I can get my copy free from Voices.com!

For that reason alone Randy Thomas and Peter Rofé's book "Voice for Hire" should be a huge time saver, as well as a compelling read.
