Hi. I'm Kevin Clay, and I would love to do your audiobook. Now, why in the world should you pick me? Well, first of all, because I realize how important your book is to you. I realize you've spent a lot of time, a lot of effort, hours of your life bringing this book into being, and so now you'd like it made into an audiobook. It is incumbent upon me to give it the same kind of attention that you did to make sure that it's the absolute best and matches up with your vision of what the audiobook should be like.
Whether you've got something concrete in mind or just a general idea and you'd like me to fill in the gaps, I can work with you on that. I've been doing audiobooks for years, had a lot of training from some really great people who've helped me out, and I've got a team of proofers, editors, and, of course, Oliver, the quality assurance dog to make sure that your audiobook is exactly what you're expecting, if not, more.
If you're interested, give me a call. I'd love to chat with you.
“My grandfather gave me a cassette recorder when I was eight years old. My friends and I used to make up our own audio dramas complete with sound effects we’d checked out on vinyl from the local library. I’m still doing audio dramas but now I get paid to do what I always did for fun as a kid…”
Kevin Clay spent 30 years in broadcasting and even though he’s no longer on the air he still donates a lot of this time to volunteer work reading to school children, emceeing events and occasionally picking up his guitar to entertain the masses (whether they want him to or not!). He is regularly featured on camera in training, sales and other presentation videos, being the master of various characters that he is!
Kevin has invested heavily in training with famed voiceover artists Pat Fraley (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Scott Brick (Dune, In Cold Blood). He was also one of only 75 narrators nationwide chosen to attend Audible.com’s Narration Workshop at their studios in Newark, NJ in 2015. He regularly invests in training and workshops to keep his narration skills sharp and improving.
He’s been married to his wife, Bridget, for over 30 years and they share their home with his audio supervisor Oliver “The Quality Assurance Dog”, a rat terrier who won’t accept anything less than the best in audio production.
