Some authors and publishers are bypassing ebooks and paperbacks in order to go straight to the Audiobook.
Audible and Itunes are the two best selling applications for Audios.
Audiobooks are convenient. The reader can listen while as he drives, does chores or gardens. It is a great tool for the multitasker.
So who reads your book? My first audiobook is for sale. Audible lets you pick the producer. For my novel Tattered Wings, I chose William Reese.
Bill has been in radio for years and knows how to make a character come to life.
His voice is rich and inviting. I closed my eyes and listened to him read.
To hold the attention of the author is no easy task. We have already read our work many times.There is when we write it, rewrites, (at least two, but more likely three), then it reaches the editor to go through first, second, third edits as well as line edits, and last but not least, it must be proofread.
Such is the way it was with Tattered Wings. I put my headphones on and prayed I could keep my mind on this story I knew so well.
By the end of the first chapter, I was drawn into my own novel.
Thanks to William Reese, it was easy. Bill has done five books for Audible this year, and I look for him to do many more including any adventure I have that calls for a male reader.
Did I mention I feel like I've made a new friend?
Anyone can download a book from Audible free. I did, and I can see how it could be addicting.
