How to Make and Sell Them
You've written a book and you think you have a good candidate for audio publishing. You wonder, though, whether you should try to license the audio rights or perhaps publish the audio version yourself.
In addition to providing a fundamental overview of audio publishing and helping you determine whether your work is a viable candidate for audiobook recording, our speakers will address these issues and more:
- Whether to self-publish or, instead, license the audio rights
- What to do to ensure the best production quality
- How to get it into the marketplace once it is ready for distribution
- What resources are available to help you publicize your audiobook or network with others in the audiobook business

To her, making lemonade is no mere philosophical or psychological proposition; it has been a life-saving strategy. A native of Southern California, Janet lives, writes and maintains her coaching practice in North Hollywood, California. Her self-published title "Lemons, Lemonade & Life" came out as an audiobook earlier this year, and it is available on Audible.com, iTunes, Audiobooks.com, and AmblingBooks.com.
