What the heck just happened? The month of June just sort of disappeared in a vortex of VO work. Which is a good thing, but makes it hard to find the time to compose something interesting, relevant or amusing as a blog post.
What Can You Expect at VOICE 2014? Voice Over Times From August 27th- 30th the who's who of voice-over will gather in Anaheim, California for the fifth edition of the Voice Over International Creative Experience, VOICE 2014.
Publishing. Becoming an author, and taking a book to print was NEVER simple, but at least there was a method. Now, it's something akin to chaos. The publishing business began the same upheaval in their world that voice-acting did when digital + forward-thinking entrepreneurs realized the marketplace potential. What or who lost out?

I don't know about you, but I get offers by email every day with an encouragement to participate in some form of online or in-person, or psueudo-in-person session. Let me just attempt a list of the many types of learning enticements voice-actors are subject to on any given day: Webinars Skype Google Hangout GoToMeeting FreeConference Calls Zoom Customized (eg. EWABS, VO Peeps, etc) Private Skype or Phone coaching White papers Books LinkedIn Groups Peer-to-peer conference calls Weekend or week-long coaching Workshops Conferences and Unconferences Live in-person seminars, and remote [...]
