"Voice-Acting: the 2nd Highest-Paying Freelance Job By the Hour." This statement is from It’s just talking, right? Actually, you need: "More Than Just a Voice: The REAL Secret to Voiceover Success." After 2,500 blog articles, friends began urging Dave to publish a collection of his best blogs. :More Than Just a Voice" is that book. For those seeking answers about getting into the business, to others who needed a refresher on the latest techniques and trends, this book is the answer. It’s also full of common sense advice in the face of rumors to the effect that voice-acting is a license to print money.

Sure, you have to be a good speaker, but that’s less than half the battle. Today’s voice talent is equally adept at audio engineering, marketing, social media, accounting, and writing. This book fills in the blanks to get you there. Each chapter tackles a topic that shapes you into a well-rounded freelance voice over talent...more than just a voice. Voice Actors are paid to be the voice on documentaries, corporate videos, audiobooks, explainer videos, medical/technical narrations, and TV promos, and they got there by being smart about their freelance business.

“I have recommended Dave’s blog to so many voice-actors over the years and now all that information is organized in one publication, completely updated and categorized. Congrats Dave for this excellent book, a true resource for all things VO.” ~ Joe Cipriano, Network Promo Voice for FOX, CBS, ABC
