Riehl on Author Access Podcast: DIY Audio Book Production

Author Access hosted a podcast interview with me on how to record, produce, and market audio-book versions of eBooks and print publications. My chat with Victor Volkman and Irene Watson brought out tips you'll find useful if you've wondered about making and producing an audio book.

I drew upon my experience of expanding Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary, told in story poems, into the audio-book Sightlines: A Family Love Story in Poetry and Music.

See my article on Blogging Authors on "How to Make & Produce an Audio Book." Each of these six steps are illustrated by videos, several featuring conversations with my sound engineer Scott Kidd.

1. Creative;
2. technical (editing, mastering, disc numbering);
3. legal (licenses and copyrights);
4. production;
5. distribution and marketing; and,
6. Big Celebration.
