Anna was a joy to work with. She updated me on every step along the way. Great voice, amazing narrational skills, and thorough. Cannot recommend her enough!"
It has been a pleasure and a joy to work with Anna Marie Peloso. Her reading style and professionalism are top-notch and her production of my book masterful. It will be an honor to work with Mrs. Peloso again.
Simply put, she actually took the time to read my book, and then expressed her enthusiasm about taking on this project. Certainly a person can be "hired" to do something. But when a person "wants" to do something, and is as passionate about producing what you wrote, the synergy is very special. In short, she believed the quality of the story, and fell in love with the characters who tell the story.
My experience with her as my producer:
I took a chance on her, because she took a chance on me. She made a commitment to turn a 114,000 word book into a 13.4 hour audio book. She was in regular contact as we collaborated chapter by chapter.
She listened to phone calls, emails and feedback; when corrections/revisions were needed, her only desire was to get it right.
She even let me work with her on character dialogue, so that the listener would fully appreciate figures of speech, medical/scientific references, and multiple languages!
As the production process moved along, I had the privilege of getting to experience a very consistent work ethic a book of this size requires to complete. She made revisions in most cases the same day.
Her husband, Michael was also her audio engineer; he routinely gave a finished file that was quiet and clean.
Now that the production is complete, I feel as though I've acquired a new friend, and have had the pleasure of getting to really bond with someone who is now just as much a part of this book as I am.
In essence, it's now "our" project in this finished form. I could not have done this without her!
First of all, I'd like to mention how professional you are, in your emails, your response times, and in how eager you are to get the job done right! You show no trepidation in any and all feedback, and have never once shirked any edits I've sent your way. Because of this, I could review the audios you returned with peace of mind that when I wanted something changing, you changed it. Also, your feedback was phenomenal, it really made my day, and the final product came across wonderful! I couldn't have been happier with how you handled some of my most important scenes, and your support even after the job was done has been greatly appreciated. I've never worked with anyone from this profession before, but you helped set the bar high and I'm so grateful.
Good evening Anna Marie, I just want you to know how much I appreciate the time and effort on making my stories come to life on audio. At first, I was kind of skeptical on turning my books into audio and then I heard your audition. When you are reading my stories out loud, you brought my stories to life. You emphasized all of the question marks, exclamation marks, quotes, humor and sarcasm in every sentence. Not only did you deliver, you delivered before time. Thank you so much Anna Marie Peloso. I am looking forward to working with you more in the future.

Anna Marie Peloso is the perfect narrator for Gia San Valentino's story, A KISS UNDER THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. With a quick and snappy speaking style, Ms. Peloso brings Gia to life from the page and made me feel every ounce of the character's angst concerning her crazy Italian family and her Catholic-guilt crush on Tim Santini. Brava!
Anna Marie was the first narrator to audition for The Dream State Journey To Source. I wanted to wait about a week to consider other narrators. However, after listening to Anna’s style of reading my story in just the magical way I desired a few times, I chose her within just a day. I’m confident that I made the best choice. I’m so grateful to have been blessed to work with such a talented, professional and prompt narrator on my very first audio book. I really look forward to working with Anna Marie on my entire Dream State book series.
Thank you so much! We have truly enjoyed working with you. You did a fantastic job on the production!!!
