The modern world moves fast, and some people just don’t have time to sit down with a book and read. Fortunately, it’s easy to reach these folks – who might be intrigued by your book… but live on the go and would prefer to listen rather than read!
A 2012 survey by the Audio Publishers’ Assocation found that audiobook sales were increasing in popularity over past years, and that:
- Audiobook listeners cite convenience of listening, especially while driving, as a reason why they enjoy audiobooks.
- More than two-thirds of recent audiobook buyers said that audiobooks were relaxing and enabled them to multitask.
- Some audiobook listeners said an audio performance makes certain books more interesting than they would be in print!
A high quality audiobook can be informative, entertaining, creative, or professional… I aim to incorporate all of these qualities in my audiobook work!
I have narrated and produced dozens of audiobooks, including:
- Short e-books where the finished audiobook was less than 1 hour in length.
- Non-fiction, specializing in medical, scientific, and self-help/personal development
- Fiction books – I love romance, especially LGBT romance (yes, I do character voices!)
- e-Learning and training courses (see my eLearning section for more information about that.)
I strive to capture the author’s voice and bring their words to life.
I screen each audiobook to ensure that it is error-free and true to the author’s vision.
Approximately 4 – 10 hours of recording, editing, and production goes into each hour of finished audio. I think that you will be very pleased with the quality of my work.
***Audiobooks can be very large projects and I have limited availability for audiobook projects – please contact me to inquire if we might be a match. Turnaround time varies depending on my availability, but in general I can produce approximately 1 finished hour of audio per week after receiving and reading the manuscript. How many finished hours is your audiobook? Approximately 9000 words = 1 finished hour of audio. Contact me to inquire about rates for audiobook production.
