In the next five years, Amazon expects that number to grow to more than one million audiobooks.” The details about how to create an audiobook and promote it are inside this little volume. I recommend it.

    I assume that I'm not alone here, but I suffer from the delusion that not only am I capable of becoming a published author, but that I would actually do an amazing job narrating my work myself, thereby reaping a huge financial windfall associated with the current audiobook boom sweeping the globe.

I mean, I feel like I could literally be swimming in hundreds of dollars. So, I was pretty interested in the topic. The advice contained in Rieman's Guide is practical, pragmatic, and applicable to anyone who shares this particular mania. Not all of it was strictly common sense. There were quite a few things I would never have thought of myself and would have had to muddle through on my own. Most of the content felt original, but it was sprinkled throughout with tidbits from other indie authors and narrators. As a narrator, Rieman wasn't bad, himself, but he wasn't my favorite either. He did a fine job with the material and wasn't a distraction. The only negative I'd have about the book/audiobook is the cover art. It's really, really bad IMHO. Especially, in light of how Rieman specifically counsels authors to ensure they have high quality artwork so their works will sell. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the audiobook business either professionally or out of a general curiosity. ***Full Disclosure: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Audible and ACX have already made a couple of huge compensation changes, but otherwise this book is right on the money. If you are an author, it’s short and concise and will not be a waste of your time.

This is how you join the audiobook revolution! Have you ever wanted to know just how much work goes into making the audio book you're listening too? Are you an author that have been getting requests to turn your novel into an audio book or thinking about doing so to get more attention for your novel? Then look no further. Richard Rieman's The Author's Guide to Audiobook Creation walks you through a typical process from start to finish of what you need to do as an author and just what is in store for you once you have started. Rieman's way of describing everything not only gets you interested in following along the path of what is required but he delivers the information in such an upbeat manor that you can't help but think he is truly enjoying reading his book. Even if you are not a published author or ever really considered putting your writings out there, Rieman gives advice and experience to what ever level you are at in the field of writing. I didn't know that so much useful information could be packed into such a short audio book. Really worth your time to give a listen. Even if you have no interest in writing or becoming a writer but you LOVE AUDIOBOOKS, I feel you really need to fully understand the journey of your listening enjoyment. I, for one, appreciate my audio books on a whole different level than I did before. Thank you Mr. Rieman for making me realize the complicated steps to making an audio book!

    This is a very informative book on creating audiobooks. The author has lots of tips from personal experience as well as some from fellow authors and mentors. The idea of creating your own audiobook can be confusing. There is so much more than simply picking out a narrator and recording it. Mr. Rieman gave me a lot to think about and a good idea for where to start. I totally agree that writing for audio is a good plan. As a super listener of audiobook fiction, some titles do fall a little short s This is a very informative book on creating audiobooks. The author has lots of tips from personal experience as well as some from fellow authors and mentors. The idea of creating your own audiobook can be confusing. There is so much more than simply picking out a narrator and recording it. Mr. Rieman gave me a lot to think about and a good idea for where to start. I totally agree that writing for audio is a good plan. As a super listener of audiobook fiction, some titles do fall a little short sometimes when it comes to the audio. It reads fine in print, but in audio, its either distracting or overwhelming. This is a good how-to title for the author that is thinking about, or on the fence about, making an audio version of their book.

This is a guidebook for uncharted territory aimed at the author, but fascinating for the reader/listener as well. I have two friends who have been ebook and/or print published but have been hesitant to get into the audio market, so I have insistently dragged their attention to this book! It is a quick read, but a valuable resource and each reader will have many bookmarks in it!
