Thank you for your interest in becoming a Books In Motion Narrator.
Our narrators traditionally have a radio or theater background, are able to create alternate and distinct character voices, and maintain these voices throughout the course of a book. We record in our studios here in Spokane, Washington, though we also utilize narrators with access to their own remote studio.
When auditioning for narration: submit a recording, preferably in mp3 format, that is 5 to 10 minutes in length. Radio spots, industrial voice over work etc. will not suffice to show us your storytelling abilities. Select a book that you enjoy and that has a few different characters. We will be listening for your pacing, your ability to transition from one character to another, and if you are auditioning as a remote (home studio) narrator, we will also be paying attention to the audio quality of the recording that you submit.
To get an idea of what we are looking for and expecting, visit some of the audiobooks posted in the Categories section of our website and listen to a few audio clips from different readers.
Submit your sample recording and contact information to email@example.com. If we feel that your abilities may fit our needs, we will contact you about rates and availability.
