    I’ve been surprised at how well my audio books are doing. The price for one audio book is A LOT, but I think most of my “sales” are coming from the Audible trial, which means my audio books are free. I don’t mind, though. I’m just glad to see them getting downloaded. 🙂 And the narrator is wonderful. He’s doing a lot to get the word out.

    I was a little confused at first reading this, because I was like, I didn’t know Juneta was South African. lol, then I finish reading, and of course it’s Ronel guest blogging, duh, Raimey. 🙂 Great post, both of you. 🙂

      Ooo, I am glad you said something. I did not realize it was not clear, but then I did fail to put a byline in. I added that so as not to confuse. Thank you and thank you.

    Great post, Ronel! I’ve heard wonderful things about audiobooks from authors who have had them done. It’s nice for readers to have something to listen to driving back and forth from work or doing a work-out. Best of luck!

    Hi Ronel, great post! I too believe that a-books could be a nice boost to my visibility and earnings. One way I’ve been getting “hits” with the first book I put out has been at libraries, who pay a small amount whenever someone borrows the title from their collections.

    I’ve heard that people are very interested in having the author him/herself read the story and that hit me right where I live because I love reading aloud (I check my proofs that way, now it’s rehearsal!). I use the free Audacity tool, a good mike, and submit my work to Findaways just as you suggested.

    If anyone is interested in the DIY route I have some posts on my blog that might help! Go us!

      Thanks, Will! I’m glad that I’m not the only one who thinks this will work — thanks for sharing your thoughts (and resources) on audiobooks.
