The 411 on Audio

September 24, 2019

The ladies of the Writer's block welcome Rick Peoples to the show to talk about the process of turning his novel into an audio book.  We are delighted to also have Martha Polley, who is the voice of, "Hey Ma, Your Husband's Dead."

  • Having your audio book out will boost sales. The industry is showing double digit growth every year
  • Finding the right voice actor is key
    • Someone who can deliver the story in the right tone
    • Someone in your price range
  • 10,000 words will end up being 1 hour of finished audio
  • You will need a separate cover for your audio book
  • Martha can be found on Facebook

May you be inspired, feel empowered, and B. Well.

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. Mandra Biscornet is out this week so Rick Peoples sits in on the panel with Shelly Devlin and Deborah Monk to discuss:

  • Rick Peoples Wrote “Hey Ma, Your Husband’s Dead”

  • Self-Published
    • How long does it take to self-publish once the editing is done?
    • Hire an editor…You cannot self-edit. A fresh set of eyes can make ALL of the difference.
    • What are the total costs to self-publish?
    • How do you figure out what you really paid for your project?
    • Formatting programs can limit your creativity.
    • Should you buy your own ISBN number?
    • Who pays for the ISBN number becomes the publisher of record
  • People judge your book based on its cover. How can you make the process easier?
    • What are the colors that people are drawn to on books?
    • What Fonts are most popular
