The First Voice Acting Book in the Philippines Launches at the 37th Manila International Book Fair

Book enthusiasts, unite!

The 37th Manila International Book Fair will be held on September 14-18, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. It is the biggest and longest-running book expo in the country where thousands of titles ranging from fiction, textbooks, graphic novels and educational materials can be seen and bought at discounted prices. MIBF is a haven for book lovers as they have access to a wide variety of reading materials, and also an opportunity of exposure and exchange of ideas amongst the players in the publishing and academic industry.

MIBF is a great venue for authors to launch their new titles… and this year, I am blessed to be one of them.

Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent at the Manila International Book Fair 2016

In the book fair, I will be releasing my second book entitled “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent.” I am thrilled and honored to have written the country’s first-ever voice acting book, the way I have built the country’s first-ever voice acting school in 2005, the Philippine Center for Voice Acting.

“Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent” is a book for all aspiring voice artists who would like to learn the tools and techniques to build a successful voice acting career. I have laid down a comprehensive yet easy-to-follow roadmap, so that you can take the first step in making your dream come true as a voice-over, broadcaster, host or public speaker. That roadmap includes:

  • The opportunities that await you in the voice acting world
  • How to find the best voice acting workshop
  • Tools and techniques to develop your vocal variety and vocal power
  • Scripts of commercials, animation, and even tongue twisters to help you practice your voice acting skills
  • Ways to uncover your niche and build your brand
  • PLUS: how to set up your own recording studio at the comfort of your own home!

For over a decade, my voice acting school has helped thousands of people to develop not only their voice acting skills, but also their confidence in discovering and pursuing their passion in life. There have been countless times when I have been asked if our school has a branch in the provinces, if we can take more than 20 students per batch, or if we can do one more batch for the year. While we may not be able to reach as much people as we want with our voice acting workshop, this book will be able to do so, as it will be available in leading bookstores nationwide. It’s our very own workshop-in-a-bottle!

In celebration of my 20 years in the voice acting industry, I would like to invite everyone to join me as I launch “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent” in the Manila International Book Fair. The book will be sold at a discounted price of Php100 before it hits the bookstores at retail price. I will also have a book launching and signing on September 17, 1-3pm during the book fair, at the Psicom booth 446-448.

As I always say, the voice is our most powerful instrument. It is the only instrument that can start a war or say “I love you.” And in voice acting, there’s limitless opportunities waiting for you to discover, develop and maximize your voice.
