Voices.com is pleased to present the world with the first-ever voice over industry book review series, instituting a book club designed specifically for professionals in the voice over field. The Voices.com Book Club offers monthly book reviews from respected industry gurus, businesspeople, and technologists, serving millions of readers around the globe with detailed, personal reviews of an authors work.
The audience of the Voices.com Book Club is largely comprised of people who use their voice to make a living, consisting of voice actors, voice talents, voice artists, voice over professionals, voiceover coaches, instructors, authors, production facilities, and recording studios.
The first book reviewed at Voices.com was celebrity voice talent Rodney Saulsberry’s “You Can Bank on Your Voice”, a book that gives people a leg up on getting into the voice over business. Rodney’s book covers all aspects of discerning talent, getting started, home studio setup, interpreting copy, auditioning, agents, unions, and more. The book is liberally sprinkled with vignettes from his career experiences, often humorous and always useful.
When interviewed about writing You Can Bank on Your Voice, Rodney Saulsberry says, "I was inspired to write this book by the pure love that I have for this business and my desire to let others know about this wonderful opportunity behind the camera. You can truly attain spiritual and financial success in the world of voice-overs!"
Voices.com Book Club reviewer, Stephanie Ciccarelli says, “Rodney’s book is sincere and encouraging, providing generous tips on how to succeed in voiceovers. Three aspects I appreciated most were his attentive writing style to his readers, focus on relationships between voice actors and their representation, as well as a comprehensive section on reading copy for movie trailers and commercials.
