Mrs. PG has been enjoying very nice sales from her most recently-released audiobook, An Oxford Murder.
This is the first time she has worked with a Voiceover Artist named Lillian Rachel.
Lillian is British-born, but has lived in Washington DC for some time. Mrs. PG has heard from more than one of the purchasers of her audiobook that the voices, accents, etc., that Lillian has provided are both accurate and an excellent accompaniment to the story.
In connection with her services, Lillian sent Mrs. PG a list of audiobook websites that can provide an indie author with lots of marketing, review and advertising opportunities.
With Lillian’s permission, PG includes the list of websites below. The descriptions are Lillian’s:
WEBSITES FOR REVIEWS AND PROMOTION
The big granddaddy of them all is Audiofile Magazine. They’re the dominant industry trade magazine, and getting your book reviewed there a Really Big Deal. They give Earphones Awards throughout the year to titles they deem worthy.
For digital audiobook submissions: Please email email@example.com with a download link (Dropbox, Hightail, etc.) or a link to your title on Audible.com. Please include the high-res audiobook cover art (300 dpi), ISBN, and distribution information.
Audiobook Jukebox is an aggregator site. They’ll list your title as available for review, and if a subscriber is interested you get reviewed, usually in a blog and on Audible.
Audiobook Reviewer is a curated site – lots of different reviewers submit reviews there. Lots of followers, and big social media presence make this one a good place to offer your title, though. You can also be a “featured” title on their site for a fee. Not sure how that works, or what kind of traction it gets you. They also give awards annually.
Love & Lace Inkorporated– (Romance Genre Only)
This is an online and physical quarterly publication designed for Romance readers! It is extremely affordable to put an ad in for a spotlight, Audiobook Feature/new release, Character Interview, Author Interview, etc.
These ladies offer a team of over 200 audiobook reviewers. You simply give them your codes and they get you reviews. They also do Release tours, blitz, IG tour, etc. GREAT resource
They also do Release tours, Release Blitz and IG tours. The Review tour is probably the best at getting the word out! Many of my authors have done this and have had great success!
