Friendly and professional audiobook services.
Having an extra pair of trained eyes and ears on your audio project can pick up on the things that you’re too close to catch – adding to the overall quality of your finished product. Rates are calculated per finished hour of audio.
As a prooflistener, I:
- Listen along with the original text to make sure there’s no deviation from the script
- Keep track of character voices/accents to ensure consistency (I specialise in British accents)
- Note any disruptive sounds; ambient noise, clicks, breaths, microphone issues etc.
- Collate all my notes in an easy to read format on Google Sheets or Excel spreadsheet
“Nia is an absolute pleasure and a joy to work with. Her attention to detail is top notch and always expressed clearly and efficiently on a well documented spreadsheet. She is professional yet personable and creates a great working relationship!”Diana Croft (audiobook narrator)

“Nia is absolutely fantastic! She listens with heart and so much knowledge! I have used her for proof listening and accent checker for two novels I have narrated with USA Today Bestselling Author, Chasity Bowlin and her Dark Regency Series. Not only have I used her talents in this way, I have used her as a beta reader and editor for my Southern Haunting Series I have written. Her feedback has had me writing some of my favorite scenes that would not have existed without her. Her level of professionalism is top notch and I can not recommend her enough. You hire her and you will have your project elevated to a level you did not know you could achieve.”– Lillian Yves/LeeAnne Hansen (pen name)
