Audio Book Narration -- The Basic Questions Answered
- What is involved in securing a narrator? Where would a writer look? Is there a professional group for narrators, or is are relationships built by referals from other writers?
- What are "best practices" to include in contract negotiations when securing a narrator? Does the narrator receive a percentage of the gross sales, or is it fee-based?
- How long does it take to convert a novel to an audio book? Is there "lead-time" to consider if one wants to publish their audio book at the same time they present the novel for sale?
- In what format should a writer present their work to a narrator? Word? Simple text file? A copy of the e-book itself?
Come to the meeting prepared to have a good time!
