Audiobook Production

  • Your finished manuscript goes through the following process

    • Your manuscript is read so the voice talent gets to know your characters, understand the scenes, builds a flow of your dramatic arc and begins to form characterizations to bring your words to life.​

    • After a complete reading, the voice talent records each chapter in one session, to keep the audio quality consistent throughout the chapter. Lines are read and re-read to make sure they match the specific scene, character's voice and personality.

    • Each chapter is meticulously edited to remove extraneous noise, to ensure consistent sound quality throughout the recording and maintain continuity in the editing process.

    • As the author, you review these edited files, taking note of pacing or inflection issues, scene expression and character mannerism. These notes are used in the next phase of production.

    • The voice talent, reviews the editing notes and seamlessly makes the appropriate corrections in the edited audio. 

    • The final audio files are reviewed a second time to ensure the edits meet the authors expectations.

    • The approved audio files are mastered to remove room noise, additional audio artifacts such as pops and clicks that make their way onto the audio recording.

    • Once mastered, the files are ready to distribution, either to the JumpCard® Catalog or to another online distribution site.
