    Hello!

    I'm an actor and voice talent, and have also written 3 non-fiction performance guides.

    I'm very interested in narrating audiobooks and would love to work with indie authors on any book narration projects. Being new to this and unrepresented, I'm happy to work for a fraction of the price of your average 'Audible' narrator, and will endeavor to produce the highest quality recording, no matter how long it takes me! Please see below for my fees.

    If you'd like a quote, please email me at jakeurry@hotmail.com, with a brief description of your project, a word count, and any other details you think would be helpful.

    Thanks for reading!

    Voicereel

    This is my audiobook voicereel, to give you an idea of the sound of my voice. If comissioned, I will always send you samples of myself reading your work to choose from, before recording the whole work.

    Fees

    I work at a basic rate of £30/1,000 words. This is negotiable for longer recordings, so feel free to ask for a quote. After researching the costs of other narrators, I've put together the following breakdown to compare my fees with the usual expected costs.

    1000 words: Me - £30, Elsewhere - £50 to £75
    10,000 words: Me - £300, Elsewhere - £500 to £750
    25,000 words: Me - £750, Elsewhere - £1250 to £2100
    50,000 words: Me - £1500, Elsewhere - £2500 to £4200

    Sounds like you have a pretty good voice for narrating audiobooks. I hope it works out for you and grows into a good business.
