Published authors, lend me your ears! Professionally-voiced audio book publication is now available at Outskirts Press. You asked for it, and we listened! Readers are listeners, and now it’s easier than ever to target that whole new market.
Contrary to popular belief, e-books are not the fastest growing segment of the publishing industry. Do you know what is? Audio books! Within the next five years, Amazon expects to have over one million audio books available through its partner Audible (up from just over 100,000 a year ago). And between you and me, even that estimate sounds low.
Now that Outskirts Press makes it so easy to turn your paperback or hardback into a professionally-produced audio book, there’s no reason not to add the most exciting format yet to your published arsenal. Approximately 50% of surveyed readers report they have listened to at least one audio book in the past, and those figures are only going to grow.

- Mystery and Suspense
