This evening I want to give you an insight: if you dream of becoming an author but has difficulties
• signing with a publisher house
• booking a meeting with a publisher house
• getting started on the ‘getting signed with a publisher house’ process because of the amount of work you think you have to put into it
• going for your dream because of the fear of rejection
Then this is for you!
Every 3 month I receive a statement on my book sale from my publisher house. And I can tell you this: audiobooks is thriving!
Personally then I published by latest book as a hardcover, ebook and audiobook.
My point here is: it is the easiest thing in the world to record an audiobook (unless you’re super pregnant like I was, swipe for picture). The process of doing that is almost only
1. Book a studio
2. Press play, pause and stop
3. Save your recording
I had a company that edited mine together, but I’m sure you can do it yourself too.
Being signed with a publisher house has a lot of good things about it when it comes to: getting your book in the shops (physical and online), on trade fairs, they have graphic designers to do the layout of your book and so on. BUT if you have a great audience yourself, can do some magic with the visual layout and hire someone to correct your gramma, then you’ll be fine. At least: think about it.
Maybe push away the dream of publishing a hardcover book (for a while) and go for the audiobook instead. ❤️ xx J
