Quick turn-around for small projects; in-studio remote consultation with clients. For book narrations, typical completion time is about 3 hrs. studio time for each hour in projected length; dependent on the subject matter and requirements for the variety of voice characterizations, pacing and follow-up consultation and fine-tuning with the client. It is my practice to provide a book rights holder with a line-numbered Word version of the manuscript to facilitate ongoing questions and corrections. I believe in keeping the client informed as I progress, which includes - at the client's request - periodic audio samples.

"It's tough to keep a listener's interest when they're sight-seeing and trying to listen to a guidebook at the same time, but Wayne made it possible with his smooth, unhurried narrative style. He made it sound like he was really seeing those places."Curtis Casewit, author, Western Colorado: Grand Junction, Durango, Telluride, Mesa Verde & Beyond (Travel Adventures)
