The general rate for audiobooks is just $22 per 1,000 words. Publication time for audiobooks will generally range from 4-6 weeks, depending upon the length/complexity of the manuscript. The steps to production/publication include:
- Fill out the form below to reserve your spot
- We will need a digital, markable copy of your book. Digital, as your narrator will use a digital rather than paper copy in order to avoid page turn noises. Markable, as your narrator will prepare the manuscript for recording by marking voicing (for different characters, accents, quotes, etc.) and phrasing, as well as adjust any text that is unnecessary for the recorded version.
- Also, please send along your cover art, description, and book links for publication.
- As your manuscript is prepared for recording, your narrator will contact you to discuss the pronunciation of names, any desired accents and other points to note.
- We will record the first 15 minutes as a sample for you to hear and discuss, making sure that the tone, accent and style is what you had in mind before progressing. Additional sample tracks will be made as needed for your approval.
- After the audiobook is complete, you will receive your MP3s for your own use.
- You, the author, will retain ALL copyrights and ownership of your manuscript.
- You will receive a downloadable press kit and author webpage on our site where you can post upcoming events, book links, photos, videos and more–anytime!
- You will be included in all of our promotional activities, including television appearances, regular email and social media postings of your audiobook and book-related events to thousands of book lovers, book reviews by our review team and worldwide distribution of your book.
