Can you Make and Sell an Audiobook if your Book is on KDP Select?

Lit World Interviews

Yes you can. Short books and audiobooks are the in thing right now. Lots of Indies are working with ACX to have their books made into audio to sell with Amazon’s Audible. You can either pay a narrator and keep all your royalties, or you can opt to share the audiobook’s royalties with the narrator, in which case you pay nothing upfront. Unfortunately this service isn’t available to authors anywhere other than the United States and the United Kingdom. I would definitely use this service if it was available to me, and if any of you scribblers haven’t yet explored the possibilities of audio, it looks to be well worth the effort to have a look.

I have seen a few authors who refuse to have any part of Audible, because of their seven year exclusive distribution rights and insistence on the use of DRM though, so not everyone…

Jennie Orbell: So …Here’s The News!

Jennie Orbell is the funniest person I know…and now her blogs are all in one spot! Fantastic and Congratulations!

Two Chucks and a Tabby Cat by Jennie Orbell

Just Life - Jennie Orbell

Hi All

So …as promised in my last post, some exciting news to share with you all …and I want to share it herefirst because, in a way, it is all down to you guys. Why? Because you have read, supported, liked, and commented on this blog for the last (almost) 3 years and because of you lovely people making it ‘popular’ it has now been published (U P Publishers) in eBook and paperback.

To be honest I am more than a little surprised that anyone ever wanted to read my ramblings. After all, what it so interesting about my little life? A life filled with shouting at Richard, picking up chicken pooh and rescuing frogs, baby birds, spiders, bumble bees and worms from Chea?

‘Two Chucks And A Tabby Cat – Book One’ starts at the beginning of the blog, in 2012, at the time when Chea arrived…

The Wolf's Moon by Patrick JonesThe Wolf’s Moon by Patrick Jones has been on the market for the past three years and is still holding it’s own.

I sent copies to my brothers only to find out unless there are pictures with the words, well…you can imagine the rest.

Then, I met a fourth grade teacher who told me she no longer had time to read novels anymore.  Rachel said she did miss that part of her life, but her kids came first-as well they should.

My plight was how to reach people who just did not read for whatever the reason.

After spending some hours talking with my wife, she suggested that we again look into an audio book.

Since I am a self-published author, the cost of putting the book on CD was out of the question.

Pat and Sandy Jones

HOW MUCH?? O M G!

My wife, Sandy, suggested that we look into the possibility of an audiobook online.  After all, one can read a book using a computer or a notebook, so why not to listen to one?

ACX Audible Amazon

After quite a bit of researching, the company ACX Audible (owned by Amazon) was the choice.  We were even allowed to pick the voice of the narrator.

Mark Westfield was the man picked for the job – and a great pick he turned out to be!

He worked long and hard hours turning out what is now the finished product.  Mark’s work is excellent!

It is one that I hope you truly enjoy.

Saying all of that, I know from your emails that you are all patiently waiting for the next installment of The Linden Chronicles.

The Wolf's Moon by Patrick Jones, The Linden Chronicles

Good news for my valued readers.  Last night, the editing the newly copyrighted short novel, The River, was finished.  Cover reveal to follow soon…stay tuned.

We hope that within the next three weeks it will be out for your reading enjoyment!

So you know, I started what was to be another short story but it took on a life of it’s own.

It now sits at over 70,000 words (without revisions).

The sequel to The Wolf’s Moon is well underway.

Well my friends, this is the update.

Continue to follow my website, The Linden Chronicles, for the latest news and many other items of interest.

One more thing:  Thanks to all for the kind words, thoughts and all of your prayers.

It has been a rough three years, but you guys made it better!

To all of you, many thanks and love,

Pat
