Audio is the new big thing. Why? Because it’s just so damn convenient and the modern world is all about convenience. You can listen to your go-to author, hottest releases, favourite stories while you’re on the go. How many people on the Tube or the bus or driving along are actually listening to a story and not music at all? I’d always presumed it was music until I too started listening to books, now I’m convinced they’re all immersed in other worlds.
Because being lost in a tense thriller, an action-packed sci-fi or a steamy romance is all the rage when you’re out and about. And why not, stories make the world go round so while we’re going round the world let’s listen to stories.
I’ve recently had The Silk Tie made into an audio book. I uploaded a scripted sample onto ACX, auditioned actresses and actors for the part and then sat back and enjoyed the story as I proof listened to the final product. It came alive, the characters, the scenery, the sex and I adored being read to, even though it was my words I was hanging onto the narrator’s voice.
So for any readers thinking about giving audio books a go, I’d say go for it. And any authors thinking of making their books into audio, it’s so worth it. ACX makes it a simple process and once you’ve connected with your actors a real joy to be part of.
Coming soon to audio
