I am interested in narrating audiobooks. I am fine with providing a free sample as an audition! If it’s a good mutual fit, I would want to commit to professionally recording the entire audiobook, but break up the project into separate orders, and after review and payment for each part, I deliver the next one, client reviews and pays for it, etc. until the book is done.
Do narrators often commit to an entire audiobook somehow, but not have to record and deliver it in its entirety as one large order?
Or is the only commonly accepted standard for audiobook narration auditioning for free and then receiving payment after recording and delivering the entire audiobook??
