Ah, now that got your attention, didn't it? Whether because of the title itself, or because you thought I'd gone mad and spelt oral wrong. I haven't, honest. I do mean aural, as evidenced by the pretty picture above.
So, what on earth am I on about? It's something new I've tried this year, and will be continuing to build on... audiobooks. They're not something I listen to myself, but I spoke to so many people that do listen and enjoy them that I started looking in to it. It quickly started making a hell of a lot of sense. People love reading, but don't always have as much time to do it as they'd like - and this is where audiobooks can come in. Folks listen to them while driving, especially if they have long commutes, they listen to them while running, on trains, while cleaning, ironing, exercising... the list goes on.
For a hybrid author such as myself, they can be a bit of a challenge, however. They're expensive and time-consuming to produce, and that's after you've gone through the often lengthy process of finding the right narrator. Narrators can make or break a project, so getting the right one is essential. Now, through a mixture of pure luck and a lot of perseverance, I've been working with a few narrators to start making my indie published titles into audiobooks, and it's been great fun. So far I have four on the market, and another five are currently in production.
I'm learning all the time about how the whole process works, who the listeners are, and so on. As always, a bit part of it is marketing. Making people aware that they're available. Which is why I wrote this blog post for you lovely folks. So, if you do indeed fancy some aural sex, check out my Audible pages:
My available audiobooks are also available directly from Amazon, and also from iTunes.
If you have any information you'd like to share about your audiobook experience, please feel free to leave a comment. I'd love to hear it (no pun intended).
