Audiobooks are the fastest growing segment of the publishing market.
A recent survey by the Audio Publishers Association showed that 50% of Americans have listened to an audiobook, and that 24% of consumers have listened to 10 or more in that time. That’s a growing market! But how can you as an author break into the audiobook market without breaking the bank?
