Webcast Live: Ask Even More Experts - Level Up Your Narration (Sponsored by SAG-AFTRA)

On the next Webcast Live, Suzanne and P.J. will be joined by Grammy-nominated audiobook director Christina Rooney and multiple-everything-award winner Scott Brick to talk about their working relationship and what it takes to make a great narrator…. great. Christina is a highly sought-after director who often works with Penguin Random House on major audiobook projects—she and Scott have teamed up on the Jack Reacher series, Jurassic Park and The Passage Trilogy, among many others. Their individual career experiences, when combined with the insights from their 15-year-long relationship in the booth, will provide invaluable—and potentially career-changing—tips about what a narrator needs to do to get to the next level. They’re that good.

We’ll have giveaways and fun in the chat for live audience members. Seriously - you don’t want to miss this. Registration is open now.
