Audio Books on the Rise

I am at The Insecure Writer’s Support Group today with book formatting tips.

Five-six years ago, the only book format plunging faster than audio books was the mass-market paperback.

Now, thanks to downloadable mp3s and the rise of people listening with their cell phones, audio books have made a big comeback.

While some continue to produce CDs, most publishers and authors have migrated to downloadable content. With companies such as ACX, it no longer costs a fortune to produce an audio book.

Over a year ago, Dancing Lemur Press, L.L.C. began converting its top titles to audio. There are now eleven books/collections available:
