Tell your story

The enthusiasm of audiobook aficionados cannot be denied. Those who love consuming books in this format often do so exclusively, claiming that the listening experience is superior in every respect to that of reading. It has been said that the immersion achieved by cutting out external sensory pollution, noise and light and plunging yourself into an audiobook is more profound, better and more engaging than reading from the pages of a standard printed title or an eReader device. The popularity of audiobooks is growing quickly because they are the most portable of book formats. You can listen to an audiobook anywhere with a pair of headphones and even engage with them while doing other things (not driving, naturally), so they are the perfect way to consume new titles if you are short of leisure time, space, or even if you don’t like reading.

Book lovers worldwide are taking more and more notice of this relatively underused format. Since Amazon acquired Audible in 2008, audiobook sales have steadily increased, and the trend is set to continue. Although we genuinely love printed books, Audiobooks are quickly finding a place in our hearts right alongside them. At Spiffing Publishing, we cater to all the needs of modern independent publishers, and as such, we take the production of audiobooks very seriously. Our team of experts can lead you through understanding the particulars of audiobook creation, from choosing the most appropriate actor to understanding file formats and technical issues to distribution and sales. We can also offer recorded actor samples and even create auditions for reading excerpts of your book. At the end of the process, you will be in possession of a stunning version of your book, which anyone can enjoy anywhere.
