Transcript of VOX Talk Episode 59

Hello there and welcome to VOX Talk, I'm Stephanie Ciccarelli.

Making voice over headlines this week are Rodney Saulsberry and Bettye Zoller, but first, let me tell you about a new way that you can get your voice over work more publicity.

For two weeks running, commercial products that include voice over have been reviewed in a new column on the VOX Daily blog, providing background on the product, how voice over is used, a review of the voice over itself and a brief biography of the voice over talent. Reviewed so far have been a Curious George Read-along book and CD narrated by Don Wescott and the Pixar Cars Shake N'Go King talking toy voiced by NASCAR's best-loved racer of all-time the King, Richard Petty.

All kinds of items are being showcased, for instance, audiobooks, talking toys, documentaries, video games and much more. Although appreciated but not solicited, sample products for review may be mailed to the Voices.com offices and upon their published review, will be donated on behalf of the voice over artist to a local charity or organization that can best make use of the donation.

For more information, click on the link in the VOX Talk show notes or visit blogs.voices.com/voxdaily/reviews

Do you need some inspiration to help pull you through? Rodney Saulsberry has just released a new CD called "Better Than Before", complete with 7 motivational and inspirational songs written with the voice over community in mind, drawing from his books You Can Bank on Your Voice and Step Up to the Mic. To learn more about this CD, visit RodneySaulsberry.com, and if you're listening to this podcast before January 17th, 2009, be sure to comment for a chance to win a copy!

In closing, Bettye Zoller is holding two voice over workshops called "The Business of Voiceovers" and "Narration Techniques" in Dallas, Texas on the weekend of January 24th and 25th, 2009.
