Digital audiobooks is one of the biggest growth sectors within the publishing industry, with smartphones, tablets and Apps - and a multi-tasking culture - meaning more people than ever are engaging with this format promoting the question, do books always have to start out life in the written form? This boom in audiobook sales has provided new markets and revenue streams for authors working with traditional publishers, as well as those who have self-published. And coupled with the dramatic rise in popularity in podcasts which appear to be taking over from traditional radio and review streams Audio is now a force to be recommend with, and one that writer’s can turn to their advantage.
