Trends in Audiobooks, and How to Produce an Audiobook

Ebooks may be on the decline, but Redwood Publishing owner Sara Stratton believes audiobooks are becoming more and more popular. Readers are looking for a way to enjoy stories while on long commutes and living busy lives. Audiobooks are the solution, and the process of recording an audiobook is actually surprisingly simple, Stratton explains. Authors can find thousands of narrators-for-hire on ACX and select one based on gender, accent, and other factors. You can even search narrators who fit into your budget – some may take a royalty share in addition to a one-time fee. Once your audio files are uploaded to ACX, the audiobook will be available on Audible (once reviewed) and Amazon.
