Intended for performers at every stage of their careers - and future careers - it is on the reading lists of many drama and theatre schools and universities and is selling well around the world.

The reaction has been unanimously positive from readers and critics alike: Theatre critic, Mark Shenton, described it as 'An invaluable step-by-step guide to virtually every eventuality', while Gemma Oaten, who relied on the book when graduating from drama school and went on to become a regular in Emmerdale, wrote 'The book is written with honesty, ease and so much knowledge and is very inspiring and comforting when you are heading out there in the big wide world!'.

The book's website,, also contains a wealth of invaluable tips, advice and resources for maximising your success at auditions and performing in general.

Self taping is an increasingly used method of casting in the film and television industry, and even theatre. Instead of going along to a conventional audition or screen test, actors are now asked to film their own auditions, edit the scenes together and send the finished product to the casting director or production company concerned. Many find this process daunting and confusing, even terrifying, not knowing where to start, whether they've got it right or if what they have filmed is of good enough quality.

The illustrated eBook, SELF TAPING: THE ACTOR'S GUIDE, is packed with inside information, advice and resources to guide you through self taping step-by-step – from what to prepare before filming to sending your tape… and what to expect afterwards.

An indispensable read for every actor and performer, which will ensure you’re prepared, keep you ahead of the competition and increase your success. The website,, will also inspire you with tips and information on this ever increasingly essential casting tool.
