Audio Books

Do you have your books out in audio?

I thought I would share some information from Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLI) on audio books for those who don’t have access to it.

The Alliance of Independent Authors is a professional membership organization fostering ethics and excellence in self-publishing.ALLi is a diverse, supportive and friendly community of thousands of authors, collaborating with other author organizations and service partners.                  In addition to an active, engaged, and growing membership, alongside with a healthy social media presence, ALLi has credibility and influence in the publishing and self-publishing industries with its founder-director, the award-winning novelist and poet Orna Ross, repeatedly named one of the “Top 100 people in publishing.” (The Bookseller)As the only non-profit representing independent authors globally, with members on all seven continents, the association has become the most trusted voice in self-publishing. And its outreach education programs and campaigns ensure its impact is felt beyond its membership designations and borders, influencing the wider author community at every level.                                                       The information on audio books comes from an article on their Advice Center posted Aug 7.

With the rise of audiobook popularity, comes a familiar question to other book formats: wide or exclusive? Still today, indie authors struggle with the decision over whether or not to publish their ebooks exclusively with Amazon’s KDP Select or “to go wide” by distributing them to additional retailers. In today's post, author member Mary Louisa Locke discusses audiobooks and exclusivity.

The current economics of producing an audiobook is an uphill battle, especially for indie authors. How much of this is due to “price-fixing” by Audible? ALLi Partner Member Tim McConnehey predicts a continued boom in audiobook popularity, and some welcome changes in the way Audible conducts its business.
