How Joseph Narducci Became An Audie Finalist With His First Audiobook

Hey there!

I woke up recently to some amazing news. A friend and client of mine, Joseph Narducci, had been named a finalist in the Audie Awards for a book he had voiced.

His very first narration of an audiobook, by the way. Yep, he’d never narrated and produced an audiobook before.

(And if you don’t know, the Audies are like the Oscars of audiobook narration. This is HUGE for him.)

So I got him on Skype and asked him how he did it. I can tell you it was inspiring a conversation as I’ve ever had.

Awesome, right? And as he said, even if you’re tech-phobic, you can do this. I know you can.

Hope this helps! Give me your thoughts on this in the comments below.

    I too use Audacity and learned to do some editing with my coach but was totally reassured with David’s on-line class before he teamed up with Dan, about the simplicity I can achieve in producing my audiobooks. The techie side of all of this business is what took the most for me to grasp properly and I have to admit I was intimidated by a lot of the self proclaimed gurus who constantly tout their latest gizmos to make their productions the best-! Voices in my head ‘used to say’ I’m not good enough to do all that! Well thanks David for your clear straightforward teaching. Outstanding! Actually I don’t need an audie to know I’m successful however it certainly would be a delight!

    I have the AT2020 usb and have produced a dozen plus audiobooks with that microphone. It is a great mic! I love it. I’m so glad to hear someone who knows their stuff recommend it. Cool video! Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations Joseph and David and Dan!

    What a wonderful story and a great interview. I watched the entire thing. While outside validation is not what should drive us, it is always nice when it comes.
