An audiobook is an intense marriage of creative forces between author, narrator, director and publisher. How does a book make it from a printed work to a CD, Playaway, or Digital Download? What challenges do narrators, directors, and publishers face in bringing audiobooks to fruition? How does technology impact audiobook production and distribution? What role do libraries play in determining which titles are made into audiobooks and what formats are available? Get a peek into the surprisingly complex, incredibly detailed, and fiercely passionate world of audio publishing. Author Julia Spencer-Fleming and Suzanne Toren, the exclusive narrator for her popular Millers Kill mystery series, will discuss these issues and more with producer Dan Hypes for a look at the ups, the downs, and the drama of making an audiobook.
