Deposit

$10 per episode/chapter for the first 6 episodes/chapters, or more, based on reliability/timeliness of payment. You can pay this deposit for as few or as many episodes/chapters as you like to reserve time. If this relationship works, future episodes will not require a deposit.

Format

Raw audio provided to me must be in WAV or MP3 format and I, in turn, will provide both a WAV & MP3 file or whichever you prefer.

Turnaround

Negotiable. If less time is required than previously agreed upon audio delivery timelines, there will be an additional $15 per episode/chapter fee for a rush. Limits apply.

Storage

Provided storage of episodes are available for one year, or 60 days post-last job, on Google Drive that you have 24/7 access to.

Rights

All rights are yours, but I may ask your permission to use small pieces of audio (up to 10 minutes) as part of my portfolio. Show notes, transcription, etc, are not part of this deal. All files (such as intros, outros, music, etc) must be provided before work commences.

Payment

As previously stated, $10 deposit per episode required at time of booking. Full invoice must be paid prior to final files being provided unless other payment details are worked out in advance. Payment shall be provided via PayPal.

Narration

Currently on hold until a new recording facility is secured.
