Bright Idea of the Day: The Author's Voice

So, I started putting a post together recently with some resources for self-publishers. I came up with a wonderful overview about the process of self-publishing, Guy Kawasaki’s APE (Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur), Joel Friedlander’s excellent exploration of the process from a print designer’s perspective, A Self-Publisher’s Companion: Expert Advice for Authors Who Want to Publish, and Liz Castro’s fabulous introduction to creating ebooks, EPUB Straight to the Point.

Looking at that list, I thought, Huh, okay — all I need is a good introduction to producing your own audiobook.

Went to find it.

Couldn’t.

Well, I spoke with some friends at the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association, where the unofficial motto is, If you can’t find the book you want, write it yourself. Asked folks if they thought that I should write a guide to audiobook production.

They did.

So I think I am. I’m thinking of calling it The Author’s Voice: A Writers Guide to Recording and Producing Audiobooks.

What do you think?
