Hello everyone! Smile

Has anyone had any experience going the audible book conversion route? If so, what was your opinion of it and which service did you use and was it worth it via price and result in boost of sales? Just curious!

What do you mean? Converting from their proprietary AA format to something open? Creating an audiobook?

Yes exactly, from ebook or paperback to an audiobook. Wink I saw it here going through Amazon: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and wondered if anyone had gone through the process, have done it and if so, did the audio version increase notoriety and sales of their books.

For my self published book, I hired a professional to do it (A local radio announcer). I did see a bump in sales, not a lot but it did help. I mostly did because the more formats available, the better, at least this is how I feel.

Balance the cost and see how many you'd have to sell to break even. In my case it was 112 copies which I made (just barely).

Amazon has a cooperative audio book production service you might want to look into. I know of authors who found it worthwhile.

That helps a lot. I saw Amazon's service and reviewed some of it a while back, it seems like a great option and I would love to do it but I wasn't sure so I figured I'd ask anyone who may have done it or is thinking of going audio too here first. Thank you! I will certainly look further into Amazon's audiobook service then on that note! Very Happy
