Today, audiobooks are attracting record numbers of listeners, and the industry continues to experience double-digit growth year over year. As the demand for audiobooks grows, more and more people are asking, “How can I become an audiobook narrator? Is it even possible?”
The short answer is YES! It is possible. And I’m living proof that you can make a living doing it. My name is Derek Perkins, and I’m an audiobook narrator.
To date, I’ve narrated over 270 audiobooks and have won numerous awards, including the coveted Audie, which is the industry’s equivalent to an Oscar.
