Well, there you have it!
What do you think?
In a few weeks, my 400+ page book will be available in print and as an eBook. Later this year you can expect the release of the audio version, narrated by the author. He’s giving me a very special rate!
Until then, you can keep track of the progress and the official release date on a new Facebook page which I’d love you to like:
I’ll also be posting updates on a new Twitter account:
WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
In the next week I am launching a website (www.makingmoneyinyourpjs.com), that will do several things:
– promote the book with previews and reviews;
– serve as a companion to the paperback edition with hyperlinks from the eBook;
– provide an easy way to learn more about the author and ways to get in touch with him.
But that’s not all. Eventually, this website will evolve into something much bigger and better. More about that at a later stage.
WOULD YOU LIKE A FREE COPY?
Do you want to be among the first to read my book?
To celebrate the release of Making Money In Your PJs, I am offering a free PDF copy to the first 50 people who leave a short comment in the comment section below. Just make sure you fill in your email address before you click “ADD COMMENT.” Otherwise I can’t reach you. Please do not leave your email in the comment box.
The PDF-version will be ready in seven to ten days, and I’ll send it to you via wetransfer.com.
Meanwhile, enjoy Making Money In Your PJs!

Paul, I met you at FaffCon3. I found the information you shared in your presentation to be accurate and useful. I also enjoyed meeting you and the personal conversation we shared afterward. Your knowledge in Voice-Over matters and marketing expertise were readily apparent. Thank you for sharing both. I’m certain that expertise shared in print will be a great resource to voice artists everywhere. – Tom
Jerry Reed says
If it’s as good as your blog, IMHO one of the best from the voiceover community, I want to be one of the first to read it. Looks like I missed being in the first 50. So, I anxiously await its initial release.
Brett Hyberger says
Darn! I just read this while sitting at my desk and missed the deadline! Paul, I will definitely be reading this book. Your blog has always such a wealth of knowledge and information to me, so a whole book will be fantastic! Can’t wait! Much success and blessings to you!
Uncle Roy says
Hi Paul – I can’t WAIT to get my ‘free’ copy, but then, it won’t be autographed, nor can I impress all of my friends by having it out as a coffee table book, so I may have to buy a hard copy, and you can sign it next time we hook up (9/20?). OK, now Mike has to finish his proofing and away we go! – Uncle Roy
Congratulations on this fabulous achievement, Paul! I wish you nothing but great success with the book and all of your plans surrounding it. Cheers!! 🙂
Christi Bowen says
I’m really excited to read your book. Even if I don’t get a free copy…I’ll definitely be buying it. BTW, I spent all day working in my PJs yesterday. I don’t normally do that but it was just one of those days- and the luxury of what we do! Thanks Paul

I’m way past the 50 mark but just want to say congratulations!
I mostly work out of commercial studios, but I’ll share a story… A few years ago I had to go to one of my city’s leading studios to direct a film dubbing. My wife said she could take me there in the car, so off we went. I hopped out of the car at the studio, looked down at my feet… and low and behold I’m wearing my slippers! Home was 18 kms away so there was no going back. Fortunately they were leather slip-ons from Morocco… and no one seemed to notice. 🙂
Memo Sauceda says
Free or not I will read it!

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube

it with someone!
