Once you have written your book and it is published, why not increase your audience by creating an audio book? Audio books are a fast growing trend as people find they prefer to listen to books while exercising, doing housework, driving or any other time when they have got the ‘head space’ to listen and learn.
The audio book market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the publishing industry and has grown over 30% in the last 12 months alone. That’s a fantastic result at a time when traditional books are declining in sales by 15-18% year on year.
Did you know that audio book sales in the US last year topped $1.7 billion and that audio books comprised over 20% of the total book market. Online audio book retailers have reported exponential sales growth and…the same trend is happening here in Australia.
