Publisher's Summary

Do you want to create, publish and market your audiobooks? Are you ready to use podcasting to grow your author brand and reach more listeners with your books?

Audiobooks are the fastest-growing segment in publishing with double-digit growth in markets across the world. Podcasting has gone mainstream with listeners consuming audio on mobile phones and in-car devices, as well as through smart speakers. Advancements in voice technology continue to expand possibilities for audio creation and marketing.

With such rapid growth in opportunity, how can you position your books in an increasingly voice-first world?

I've been podcasting for over a decade as well as narrating and producing my own audiobooks since 2014. I'm an avid consumer of audio content and I'm also experimenting with AI voice technologies. In this audiobook, I'll share everything I know so you can position your books and your author brand for the next shift in listener behavior.

Must-Have for Authors

I’m a long time fan of The Creative Penn. I’ve listened to many of her books, but this one takes the cake. She talks about everything from dictating a first draft to optimizing for voice search to creating an audiobook and more, all things I’m trying to incorporate in my own author journey. I’m going to purchase the ebook edition as well now, just for my own note taking purposes!

A Fantastic Resource for Entering the Voice-First Revolution

Joanna is ever helpful, sporting hundreds of shows that help encourage self-publishing authors. She brings her love of future and audio into this new age, crafting a book that helps you explore why audio might just be the new frontier you need to explore. What she doesn’t cover in depth, she points out resources for you to dig deeper. Thanks Joanna for this book and I’m glad Audible finally let me enjoy it.

Magnificent!

This is a magnificent piece of work which is packed with useful information. Joanna Penn certainly does her homework, and her narration is extremely pleasant to listen to. One of these days I hope to put some of her tips into practice, but even if I never get around to it... it's still a fascinating audio book to listen to. Thanks Joanna.
