You can easily find other audiobook publishers, bloggers, narrators, and enthusiasts by signing into Twitter and subscribing to one or more of my 5 comprehensive lists of audiobook tweeps. I believe that I have developed the most thorough lists of audiobook folks on the Internet! I continue to update these lists as I learn of people who should be included.
Each Twitter list is for reading tweets from a curated group of people. You can’t tweet to the list.
Its usefulness lies in the fact that all of these people are grouped together in one place. You’ll be able to stay focused on audiobooks and correspond with audiobook folks without following all of them individually.

- https://twitter.com/KarenCommins/lists/all-audiobooks (publishers, narrators, bloggers, reviewers)
To subscribe to any of my Twitter lists:
Using your browser, login to Twiitter.
Click on one of the links above.
From the List page, click Subscribe to follow the list.
You can follow lists without following the individual accounts in that list.
How to find and contact audiobook reviewers on the list
If you click on Members, you can see the description of their Twitter profile. (See the picture.) You may be able to tell at that point whether they are a good candidate to review your book.
You also can click on each one and see their tweets and link to their web site.
Once on the reviewer’s web site, you can look at their review policies and get their email address. The Literate Housewife blog offered these tips about submitting requests for reviews. This page from the Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog outlines additional details you’ll want to include in your pitch.
The publisher list has over 100 employees from various audiobook companies. The list makes it easy to reply to and/or retweet them, which is a soft and convenient way of keeping your name in front of them!
I hope this info helps! I encourage you to create your own lists of authors and others who are important to your career. You can choose to make your lists private or public. If you have other questions about Twitter lists, check out this page from the Twitter help center.
