Voices are increasingly in demand for commercials, cartoon characters, announcements, and other voice-over spots. This outstanding handbook explains how to launch a career and find work. Along with sample commercials and script copy, the author gives advice on vocal exercises, on self-promotion, and on business matters, and this expanded edition includes new tips on making a demo CD; vocal modulation and breath techniques; advanced copy-reading techniques; and a section on how copywriters see the job of the voice artists they write for.

  1. I’m a newbie. I’ve already read a lot, listened to the podcasts and audio lessons, and taken a workshop with Patrick Fraley. But this is one book I don’t have, yet.

  2. This was the first book on voiceovers I read. It’s great for a newbie, but I am curious what has been updated for the second edition. The version I got had in it material about demo TAPES, and all about how to design your “J-card.” I assume the new version talks about CDs and maybe a little more about the marketing of the VO craft?

  3. Hi Stephanie,
    Elaine’s book “There’s Money Where Your Mouth Is” is a book I would love to win through – Hook me up!
    Thanks for all your interesting blogs, podcasts and posts gang!
    Everyday I’m learning something new!

  4. As someone who wants to “launch a career and find work” in voice acting, I would not only like to receive a copy of this book, I would LOVE to!

  5. My daughter and husband are looking to break into the voice-over business…. I would love to get this book and share it with them!

  6. Hi Stephanie,
    There is ALWAYS more to learn, even for someone who’s been in the biz for 3 decades–oops! not me, surely! I also have to put in a plug for the outstanding “Internet Marketing Plan for Voice Actors” which I purchased some time ago and read and re-read to pick up new info and tips. I hope I’ll be doing that with Elaine Clark’s book as well.

  7. I SOOOOOOOOOOO want to win this book..
    …I’m really looking to excel in this business… and “just” moving into this arena.
    pick me?!?!?!

  8. Hi Stephanie. Sounds like a fantastic book and I’d love my name to be put in the hat for a possible copy. 🙂 I’m just trying to absorb all the information I can these days. This site really helps to make that possible. Thank you!

  9. Stephanie,
    I suppose lightning striking twice is out of the question. I would, however, love to have a copy of this book. I have read a lot of books on VO. This looks like a good addition to my library. I have listened to podcasts with her and even the teasers were helpful.

  10. I say you can never know enough. In addition to the intriguing title, Elaine’s book sounds like it would be full of nuggets that any serious voice talent would love to get their hands on. Count me in … I’d love to win this book !

  11. “There’s Money Where Your Mouth Is” has been on my list for a while. As I finish one I add it to the library and start another.
    This would be a wonderful way to “add” it to the library!

  12. You must be very proud that your people are so generous sharing their “tips” for success. In a world of me-me-me’s, how nice to see something else.

  13. I’m an actor who is just beginning my journey into voice overs. I took Scott Brick’s workshop in Sacramento at Nakamoto Productions on July 27. I’m making my demo in two weeks and am certain that Elaine’s book would be valuable in my education re voice overs!

  14. Elaine Clark’s “There’s Money Where Your Mouth is” is one of my favorite VO books in my library and reread many times. My book was published in 1995 and is full of real information needed such as chapter 5 “Making it M.I.N.E.” … digging beneath the surface of the script and bridging the gap between yourself and the character… helps the reader make the dialogue theirs and come alive. Nope, I don’t work for Elaine or the publisher but highly recommend this new revision.

  15. As someone new to VO, it would be fantastic to add Elaine’s book to my growing library of resources. Thanks for sharing these opportunities with all of us!

  16. Hi Stephanie:
    This is just the kind of book that I need. I’m trying to make a transition from being a career drama teacher to doing voice overs. There is so much stuff out there that I would love to have this book to help me to focus and learn from an expert to get my second career “outta the gate!”

  17. Stephanie – – this book would certainly help my understanding of the V.O. business and what it takes to “make it”. I’ll read it regardless, but would sure like to win it through your give-away.

  18. Wow! Just subscribing to Vox Daily has turned out to be a great choice. I don’t usually subscribe to lists but this provides great insight to someone like myself just starting out.
    Nice job Stephanie!
