An Audiobook Experience: “The Wolf’s Moon” by Patrick Jones

Nicholas Rossis features “The Wolf’s Moon” ACX Audible Audio Book newly released!!

Nicholas C. Rossis

Audiobook sales increased 12% from 2008 to 2013, reaching 1.6 billion dollars in sales in 2013 alone. No wonder, then, that Abigail Young’s guest post on audiobooks proved to be quite a big hit with you. In the comments, my author friend Patrick Jones mentioned that he and his wife, Sandy, had already gone down that route. I asked for a guest post, to share their experience, and they kindly delivered in record time. Enjoy!

“The Wolf’s Moon” by Patrick Jones: Bringing the BEAST to life in Audiobook

The Wolf's Moon by Patrick Jones After publishing “The Wolf’s Moon,” my wife and I worked very hard to make it a success and a reading pleasure for all. We worked hours to publish and deliver to the reading public a product they would love. Those were the key words: Reading public.

There was a vast segment of the population that we missed. They are the ones…

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…

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!

Mark Westfield, Narrator

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
