In November, I had the opportunity to attend the 20Books author conference in Vegas. Wow, was it a wonderful week! I had the best time meeting authors, industry professionals, and fellow narrators.
One of my fellow narrators booked a table for all of us to share at the vendor day and it was so much fun to talk to authors all day long! We had great interactions and really helped to educate authors on audiobooks.
The rest of the week we spent time in various panels. Though they were geared toward authors, there were still a lot of awesome takeaways for narrators.
One of the days, my narrator friend Senn, decided it would be fun to do live readings! So we invited a bunch of authors to bring a page or two over lunch for us narrators to read aloud in front of everyone. It was so much fun and there was SO much talent in the room!
I also had the pleasure of meeting some of the acquisitions and marketing departments for Blackstone, Podium, Dreamscape,
and Tantor and had some great convos with them, as well as a great chat with Soundbooth Theatre.
I’m excited to continue nurturing these relationships with these amazing folks in the book world!
Oh, and I also had some awesome swag! One gal literally squealed in delight when she saw my keychains!
