This job is for experienced voice talents with their own quality recording equipment and sound editing software in order to be able to meet Audible.com's quality assurance upload requirements.
Once hired, I will then send you the full manuscript to work on, including a copy of the graphic novel.
The estimated project end date is very important. Please do not apply if for whatever reason you do not see a good possibility of finishing a 58 page (about 20,000 words) read within that time frame.
