    Hello all, I am a huge fan of audiobooks (I am a window cleaner by trade and I listen to books all day) and I have been a voice actor for a few years now. I was hoping I could find an author with which to collaborate. I am specifically looking for a short story to narrate.

    I am happy to do this for free provided it is indeed short, and furthermore I am happy to sign all the publishing rights of the recording over to the author SO LONG as they let me use it or part of it in my portfolio. I am simply trying to build my portfolio and for some reason have met with quite a bit of resistance.. I don't know if authors are particularly against this idea or something? maybe some people here can fill me in...

    I hope to meet a few new people here!

    OH

    my current portfolio: http://www.elijahlucian.ca/voice.php my contact email is at the bottom of every page. I am pretty easy to get a hold of.

    Thanks this is wonderful. I'll share this with some of my other writing peeps. I have several Indie Author Groups. Also are you on ACX, if not check it out. :) It's a great place to get jobs.

    I like to see how it would sound with a man reading it, so this will help us both. Give you a Mystery Romance to read a few chapters off, and let folks see that side of your voice. :)

    Thanks for sharing!!

    If you want to check out the book I can email you some chapters, and you can take a peak at here on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Samantha-Fury/e/B00418GSVC/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

    I would want to do the first book Charlie's Angel
