Hear audiobook narrators and producers Andi Arndt, Ron Butler, Paul Heitsch, and Karen White present an overview of the range of audiobook publishing options available to authors in the current landscape, whether independently or traditionally published in print. Moderated by Michele Cobb, publisher of AudioFile magazine, the participants will discuss audio rights, production costs and various models of payment, and tips on casting, with time for questions. The participants have years of experience producing and narrating hundreds of books.
