Watch this and then decide.
Watch even a little of it. Maybe just skip through it. Grab a coffee. Maybe a couple coffees. Maybe slide a little rum in there.
Yeah, it’s like that.
Have you ever told someone, “Oh, it’s easy!” and then when you went to explain it, you realized it wasn’t really all that easy after all?
That’s what I have with audiobook recording.
Sure, you could explain it like this:
- Buy a microphone.
- Record book.
- Upload to Findaway Voices.
That’s really only two steps: record and upload.
But wait, there’s more!
Oh so much more.
I’m not going to explain it here. Just watch. Just watch a little.
I spent the morning putting this video together so that you don’t, well, have to.
I hope it helps you decide what to do.
If you still, after all that, no, like, really, still want to record your own audiobooks, awesome possum! Come join us over at Audio for Authors and we’ll do more crazy stuff like SELL those audiobooks!
If your angel of sanity has descended and told you, “Run! Hire a narrator!” you can still join us over at Audio for Authors but because once that audiobook is done comes the fun part: getting into the ears of listeners.
On the other hand…
When I’m done, I get this.
I’m not sure I can explain in words (says the writer…) how happy producing audiobooks makes me.
It’s just a joy. I enjoy doing it. Then when it’s done? It’s icing on the cake.
Once you learn how to do it, this power is all yours.
