Audiobooks are said to be the fastest growing sector in the publishing industry currently. This is great news for audio book narrators and audio producers too as this means that more and more people are looking to have their book turned into audio.
The options for having an audiobook recorded and produced are growing and many authors are also narrating their own books.
To update our offering for 2017 we have fully revamped the audiobook production section on our website and have made some big changes.
New Options for 2017
For authors who want to narrate their own book we have a Recording Your Own Audiobook Guide
In addition we offer editing and production service at a flat rate for author narrated books, should they not wish to spend the time editing and producing their recording. This is available for voice overs too.
Easy Pricing for 2017
Typically in the voice over industry, voice talent like to keep their prices to themselves until somebody asks for a quote. However, with rates varying massively this means that the client can end up hunting round for better prices. To help avoid this, all of our new voice overs are displayed with a guide price. If they can’t commit to a guide price, we don’t add them to our website. This is aimed at helping clients but also save us time too.
Rate per 1000 words
We are familiar with the cost per finished hour of audio in the audio book recording world. However, we find this too vague. Who knows how many hours their audiobook will be!? This is impossible to know until it is finished. What is easy to workout is how many words your book is. Once you know this, a rate per 1000 words gives you a pretty accurate indication of the overall costs.
New Voice Overs for 2017
We have added a number of new voice overs from the UK and US. We will be adding more too as the year progresses, but we are also happy to source a voice over for you, should we not have one that’s suitable for your book.

We would really appreciate it if you would share this on your social media.
