The Hidden Gems Author Podcast

Episode 2 – The One About Audiobooks

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme with special guests Sarah Beth Goer and Karen White

Authors seeking to capture the attention of readers more interested in listening to a book than turning pages may be surprised at all that goes into audiobooks. There’s plenty more to it than simply reading your book into a microphone and selling it.

There are plenty of things to consider, which is why we turned to two seasoned audiobook narrators and producers to help us navigate the sea of questions and decisions that an author needs to make.

Sarah Goer and Karen White walk us through all the factors that authors need to consider when beginning their audiobook journey, such as:

  • When is the right time in your career to start creating audiobooks?
  • Deciding whether to do it yourself or simply sell the rights to a company to do for you?
  • If doing it yourself, what goes into that?
  • Do you need to hire narrators and producers?
  • What benefit do you get from them?
  • And plenty more!
