…and everything in its place. As you know, I do so love to be organized! In fact, many people have told me that I have an unusual talent for curating, organizing, condensing, and disseminating information that is relevant to them.
With that point in mind, I decided it would helpful to list all of my audiobook-related resources in one place. (Last updated 29 May 2017)
Audiobook Resources For Authors is a curated list of articles that are grouped to take authors through the stages of production from thought to final product.
My Audiobook Marketing Cheat Sheet contains oodles of ideas for specifically publicizing and marketing the audiobook edition.
Authors and narrators will benefit from subscribing to 1 or more of my 5 Twitter lists of audiobook people and organizations.
My blog articles are separated by those of most interest to authors and those more useful to narrators. Each section has a different sidebar.
I’ve also published a number of articles on other sites of benefit to both authors and narrators.
