We work with authors and publishers to create quality audiobooks ready for digital distribution.
Before we begin…
- First, we review your manuscript. To save time, please see our CONTACT page for the genres we do and do not accept for consideration.
- After reviewing your manuscript, we can provide an audio sample and price quote.
- If the price and terms are acceptable to you…
- We set a mutually agreeable delivery schedule
- Upon completion, we deliver audio files for your review and, pending any changes, the files are ready for online distribution.
- We either provide the audio files directly to you for self-distribution…
- Or, at no charge, we show you how to upload directly to Amazon, Audible and iTunes which requires that your print and/or eBook versions are already available for sale on Amazon.
- We can also sell your audiobook through our own online store, Better Life Audio , offering authors a generous royalty of up to 60% of revenue after e-commerce fees, compared to 40% maximum from Amazon-Audible. We also have expanded our distribution partners including direct distribution to libraries, and many other online audiobook retailers.
Audiobook production steps…
- From your final manuscript, we record the narration.
- After each chapter, we edit the initial changes and takes.
- Once the audiobook has been completely recorded, each chapter is proofed for errors while reviewing the manuscript word-for-word.
- Then, all errors and changes are fixed.
- The audio is then processed with normalized levels and dynamics.
- All of the audio is then completely reviewed again for quality.
- The audiobook files are transferred to high quality mp3.
- Finally, the audio files are uploaded ready for distribution.
“We pride ourselves on attention to detail and working closely with the author and publisher to bring their vision to life.”
