A little deeper
The enthusiasm of audiobook aficionados cannot be denied. Those who love consuming books in this format often do so exclusively, claiming that the listening experience is superior in every respect to that of reading. It is said that the immersion achieved by cutting out external sensory pollution; noise and light, and plunging yourself into an audiobook is deeper, better and more engaging than reading from the pages of a standard printed title or an eReader device. The popularity of audiobooks is growing quickly - arguably because they are the most portable of book formats. You can listen to an audiobook anywhere with a pair of headphones and even engage with them while doing other things (not driving, naturally), so they are the perfect way to consume new titles if you are short of leisure time, space, or even if you don’t like reading. Book lovers all over the world are taking more and more notice of this rather underused format. Since Amazon acquired Audible in 2008, audiobooks sales have steadily increased, and the trend is looking set to continue. We genuinely love printed books, and Audiobooks are quickly finding a place in our hearts right alongside them.
At SpiffingCovers, we cater to all the needs of modern independent publishers, and as such we take the production of audiobooks very seriously. Our team of experts can lead you through understanding the particulars of audiobook creation, from choosing the most appropriate actor, to understanding file formats and technical issues, to distribution and sales. We can also offer recorded actor samples and can even create auditions for reading excerpts of your book. At the end of the process you will be in possession of a stunning version of your book which anyone can enjoy anywhere.
