Just heard one of your Librivox stories and was quite amazed. Very professional. I am a retired teacher and by wife and I own a small “Mom and Pop” audiobook business. Would like to communicate with you about doing some stuff for us. If you are interested, please let me know what you charge per completed hour. Also am interested in including some short stories you have already done for Librivox in our upcoming short story collections.
I realize they are in the public domain and we don’t need permission to use them but…I wouldn’t want to do that without your permission and payment for it. Let me know if you are interested in either of these. ( New stuff or payment for permission to use old stuff in our collections )
I just wanted to tell you that I am very impressed, and very grateful to you for sharing your wonderful talent. I have stage VI cancer, and find it difficult at times to hold a book. I’m so glad I discovered Librivox, and especially to find you.
Very Warm Regards,
Hello Ruth. I just finished listening to “After London, or Wild England” and wanted to thank you for your reading. There is a book I would love to hear you make a recording of and that book is “Survivors” by Terry Nation. The book is a British novel about a young mother trying to find her son and survive after a global pandemic kills the majority of the world’s population. I think your voice would be perfect for the book. There does not seem to be any commercial production of this. If there is any way you could do this, please let me know.
This one hadn’t disappeared, Mike, I need to approve comments before they appear, because of spam comments. Unfortunately I am currently struggling with very limited functionality on a 12 year old laptop, as both my computers have broken within the last couple of weeks, so this is the first opportunity I have had to approve your comment.
I can only record books for LibriVox that are out of copyright, I’m afraid. I do record some books commercially, but it would be very difficult to obtain the audio rights for this as it was republished only a couple of years ago by a new publisher, I believe.
I simply want to thank you. Your recording of “Wuthering Heights” just saved my exam period by making the study so much more enjoyable. Being able to read the book and then listen to it whenever my eyes got sore was wonderful for me. And your interpretation is absolutely fantastic! English isn’t my first language so I had immense trouble getting a clear idea of how the different dialects could sound till I found your reading. Audiobooks can be invaluable to foreign students. And then in the public domain! Just the warmest thanks from me.
Hello Ruthie. I am in the middle of listening to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and I want to say you are such a joy! You are a marvelous reader & I appreciate so much your contribution to Librivox! I listen while I walk at work (3 breaks throughout the day) and I always wonder what people think as they walk towards me because I’ll often have an amused smile on my face or be laughing out loud! Thanks again. Warm regards, Sue Gambill (Tallahassee, Florida)
