Start Your Audiobook Career.

Choose how you’d like to get paid for your narration work:

  1. Your own per-finished-hour rate, paid upon successful completion of the audiobook.
  2. Share royalties from sales with the Rights Holder.

Here's How It Works:

Step 1: Fill Submission Form

Sign up by filling our narrators application with details about you and your acting and audiobook experience.

Step 3: How do you want to get paid?

Choose a per-finished-hour rate, or choose to share 50% of royalties. If you're unsure, choose both.

Step 5: Agree on Terms

When a Rights Holder makes you an Offer, agree on delivery dates for the first 15 minutes of audio and the final audiobook, and payment terms.

Step 7: Finish Recording

Send PortableVoices each completed chapter of the audiobook to meet our Audio Submission Requirements and Production Standard Terms. Before payment, the Rights Holder must approve the full audiobook, and has the right to request changes.

STEP 2: Upload Samples

Tag an 2 or 3 number of samples,, based on accents, genre, and style. That way it will be easier for authors to find you and Portablevoices to recommend audiobooks for you.

STEP 4: Audition

Participate in auditions of books you are interested in narrating and producing, and record a few minutes of the manuscript. If you're the Rights Holder's top choice, you'll receive an Offer.

STEP 6: Start Recording

Record, edit, and Send the a 15 minute checkpoint of the audiobook, which the Rights Holder will approve or provide feedback. When the sample is approved, record the remainder of the project.

STEP 8: Get Paid

If you and the Rights Holder agreed on a Pay for Production fee, you will be paid directly by the Rights Holder or PortableVoices Studios. If you produced the audiobook as a Royalty Share deal, then you'll be paid based on 50% of the royalties on sales.
