Victor R. Volkman: Audiobook Adventures—New Media and Sales Channels for All Authors!
In this session, we’ll take you from understanding the growth possibilities of the audiobook marketplace to the nuts-and-bolts of finding and hiring a narrator, preparing your manuscript for narration, quality assurance, distribution, and marketing of audiobooks. Bringing your books to market as audiobooks allows you to leverage existing content, discover new audiences, and get your own piece of the $2.5 billion market with an annual growth rate exceeding 20 percent. We’ll cover considerations for both fiction and non-fiction in adult and children’s audiences.
