Two Words Publishing often find authors and publishers to have one of two positions on audiobooks: either they don’t know why it’s necessary or even desirable to have their book(s) in audio form, or they want to make every book in their catalog into an audiobook, no matter the length, genre, format, or cost. In this blog post, we would like to help authors in the first camp consider learning how to create an audiobook, and add it to their portfolio of Christian book titles, and those in the second camp to determine what type of book is a good fit for the audiobook format and when they can reasonably hope to be successful in it.
One of the most effective advertising strategies for authors is to target buyers who have already self-identified as avid readers and signed up for newsletters that promote books directly to them—in their preferred genre! How can it get any better than that? That’s exactly what services like BookBub, BargainBooksy, BookGorilla, BookCave, Faithful Christian Reads, Kindle Nation, and many more do.
