Absolute Must-Read for All Authors and Narrators.

As a big fan of audiobooks, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about how they are made, how authors turn their books into audiobooks, how narrators are found, etc. This short book turned my interest into fascination. I think every author (especially self-published authors) and narrator should read this. Unsurprisingly, the narration was top-notch as well.

The book starts by giving you a brief history about how audiobooks came about, when the first ones were made, and how we got to the point we are today. Current and past trends involving audiobooks are examined with an emphasis on predictions for the future of this expanding form of book consumption.
The book goes on to give a step-by-step guide of how to turn your book into an audiobook. It even discusses how to work with a publisher if you have already published the book.

I actually found myself taking notes for things I wanted to look in to, including other ways to listen to and find audiobooks. To say this book was worth my time would be a significant understatement. I actually listened to the full book twice!
If you are a book author or narrator, it would be worth your time to listen to this, even if you already know a lot about the industry. The background information alone is worth the listen…

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

A Must-Have for Authors

Richard Rieman presents a remarkably organized way to for authors to understand the audiobook process and get their book produced in one of several ways. It's easy to understand, and an enjoyable listen thanks to Richard's excellent presentation in both tone and pace. If you wonder whether turning you book into an audiobook is worth the effort, this guide will seal the deal, and make it much easier and faster to get it on the market. It cuts through mountains of information that would otherwise seem pretty confusing or daunting.

While I was given this book at no charge in exchange for a fair review, I honestly can't say enough good things about the way it handles this topic.
