Some of you may remember, I was inspired by a post of Don Massenzio’s to give audio books a try, via ACX. Then a tree decided to fall on our house, and everything came to a halt, including work on this project. I’m thrilled to say that I finally got back to work on this and a few other things, and voila! I now have my first audio book available on Amazon!
This process was one that, while costing me nothing but time, turned out to be a real learning experience. I’m eager to do it again, this time with a greater sense of what I’m really looking for, and how I want to approach it. But rest assured, it is definitely something that each of you should consider. The market is a large one, and growing steadily, and it is something you should offer your readers, regardless of the number of sales generated.
I’m going to do a longer post on the process soon, and maybe that will encourage any of you who are on the fence to give it a go. In the meantime, just know that you have the option to split your royalties with your producer (narrator) so that if, like me, you are on budget, it will not cost you a thing to get your audio book out there.
Stay tuned for more information, just as soon as I have time to put together a comprehensive post. For now, I just want to get the word out.
