What is keeping you from producing audiobooks? If you already have audiobooks, what made you decide to pull the trigger and how did you make the decision between profit share or all up front? This week H. Claire Taylor is joined by author Nathan Van Coops! This week’s Super Charger Story Course Winner is Christopher Willace. Thank you to our featured Patrons - Call of Dust, Twins of Prey, and Monkey Justice. The Top Tips of the week include why you don’t need a Mac to go direct with your books on Apple, how to keep all your publishing eggs in your own basket with direct selling, and what to think about when it comes to turning your book into audio. The 5 News stories that matter most to indies this week include who was the mystery donor that helped UK bookshops weather the coronavirus pandemic, sales success tips from author Adam Geen, why you should check your emails if you saw some unusual activity with your Kindle books, how author Adam Fletcher is earning a full-time living off of a genre that practically doesn’t exist, and what Amazon sales ranks currently are. Question of the Week: If you already have audiobooks, what factors did you consider to decide between profit share or all up front, and how did you decide when to pull the trigger? And if you don't have audiobooks yet, what factors are keeping you from feeling like now is the right time to produce them?
