Rejoicing away!!!!
Am so happy things are working out for you. Fantastic news!!

Won't lie though, I do miss your wonderful SPN reviews but you're obviously in a great place right now, so I can't complain.

So, congrats!

Re: Rejoicing away!!!!
Thank you!

And on the reviews: I'm planning to resume them with season eight. Yay! It's going to be dicey until mid-December - I'll still be juggling two careers up until then - but come Christmas time, voiceover will rule alone and I expect to be able to MAKE time for my writing. Stay tuned to this channel for episode commentary!!!

That is just fantastic! I'm so happy for you.

If you ever need a guy voice, pm me -- my husband is a pro stage actor here in the area and would love to do more voice work. He does accents!

Thank you! Has your hubby looked into making his own home studio for voiceover work? It doesn't take a whole lot of investment - just soundproofing a room, getting a decent microphone, and downloading some software, which doesn't need to be pricey and could even be free ... and then knowing where to search for the jobs and contacts you'd most like to engage to get work in the niche that suits you best. (Want to find local producers? Check mandy.com!)

We have garageband and a Shur SM58. :) That's where we've gotten so far! I also do a little bit of recording for my music teaching, but I'm not satisfied yet with my recording quality.

Good luck! I wouldn't dare try doing music without a sound engineer running the show - too much risk of me blowing the mic! (Can you say, dark dramatic mezzo-soprano with a Broadway belt? Yeah - noisy!)

I'm using Sony SoundForge with an AKG 2100C mic running through a mini-M-audio interface. Laptop's (I'm a PC person) outside my recording closet: I turn the recording on, got into the (carpeted!) closet, shut the door, kick a robe against the bottom of the door and pull a quilt across the door to block sound-bounce, and then walk past the blankets draped over the clothes to where my mic awaits, pillows and a draped blanket behind it. Looks sillier than the dickens, but it works!
