Thanks for sharing the business aspect of publishing. How do audio versions fit into the self publishing versus traditional publisher? Also, will you consider including identifying the English narrators of each book on your site?
You are welcome. Self-publishing audio requires a significant investment but the author also earns significantly more money, just like with publishing ebooks. Typically, there are a couple of options. You can do a profit share where Audible and sometimes the narrator takes a slice of your royalties but shares in some of the upfront costs and the one where you pay everything out of pocket but keep all of your royalties. The greater are your sales, the more sense it makes to go with option 2 and shoulder those costs.
Then comes distribution. Here again you will be investing a lot of time to figure out the best path for you. ACX is an obvious choice but you could also pay someone like Findaway Voices to distribute your audiobooks. I have no experience with this company, so this is not a recommendation.
If you have done all of your calculations and determined that the investment of time and money is worth it, self-publishing an audiobook might be a good idea. Theoretically, the audiobook will just sit there and make money year after year. It becomes a passive income stream. In theory. More on that below.
Do you want a honest answer? Nope. And here is why: Audible has been in business since 1995. It is older than Kid 1. It has a huge slice of the market. There are other retailers, but right now none of them rival Audible + Amazon combo. Apple Books/iTunes is definitely a contender and there are boutique audiobook retailers, which someone will likely list in the comments, but the majority of distribution happens through Amazon/Audible.
I am so excited. I have purchased all your books both physical and audio. At least once a month I am re-listening to one of your books. The audiobooks allow me to get other things done while still enjoying the comfort and excitement of your stories.

This was super interesting to me because when I asked the audible employee who told me about their return policy if returning books hurt the authors he told me it actually helps authors because they get credit for selling the book twice. I had no idea authors were penalized for it. Thank you for letting me know!

A rising burden of taxation is usually enough to upset people, but what makes them really, really angry is if the tax collectors are biased and corrupt. Again, all sources we have are from Italians who paid the taxes, but given how medieval notions of property work, it is likely the imperial podestas saw the city the administered as a fief. And as such they could squeeze it at will without breaking the honour code. They did have to send some of the money to the emperor, sure, but all the excess is theirs, right. It is a sign of the immaturity of this administrative system that there was no accountability and oversight, and absent a register of wealth like the doomsday book, none could be established..
There we are, new taxes, taxes that are constantly going up and tax collectors that fill their pockets by squeezing even harder and no recourse to imperial justice. In that scenario it was always unlikely that Milan, Brescia and Piacenza would ever become loyal vassals of the empire. These cities will forever dream of throwing off the imperial yoke and take revenge. But when this system gets extended to the loyal cities, they feel even more enraged. They had helped Barbarossa to defeat Milan and its allies, and now they are treated no better than their former foes.
The Veronese, lukewarm in their allegiance to the empire at the best of times, took offence at having this daredevil fighter right on their doorstep. And in all likelihood old Otto did I am sure the odd spot of plundering and squeezing of merchants and peasants. So the Veronese, together with the citizens of Padua and Vicenza demanded an imperial hearing when Barbarossa had come back to Italy in the winter of 1163. Barbarossa may be able to ignore a rabble of defeated Milanese kneeling in the dirt before his carriage, but he could not quite ignore three major city states requesting an audience.
But Verona, Padua and Vicenza refused. They had found the guts to resist not just in the strength of their walls and a quick inspection of the rather modest number of soldiers the emperor had brought down with him. What stiffened their resolve was that they had received pledges of support from Venice and from none other than Emperor Manuel in Constantinople. Venice motivation to get involved was fairly simple to deduce. A coherent, tax raising and expansionist Holy Roman empire on their doorstep was the last thing they wanted. And Venice had declared for Alexander III in the deepening schism.
All these negotiations happened in secret, but rumours were running like wildfire through the communes of Italy. The Imperial podesta in Milan became suspicious and demanded first a hundred new hostages, then 200 more. He asked for even more money, presumably to hire mercenaries. The army of Pavia mustered near Monza and some citizens of Milan who had been neutral or supportive of the empire received messages to leave their accommodation now, before they would all be wiped out. For days as their representatives negotiated with the other cities, the terrified population of Milan expected to be murdered in their beds and their houses torched.
THE HIGHER EDUCATION OF WOMEN. IN the very first year of our century, the year1801, there appeared in Paris, a book bySilvain Marechal, entitled "Shall WomanLearn the Alphabet." The book proposes a law prohibiting the alphabet to women, andquotes authorities weighty and various, toprove that the woman who knows the alphabethas already lost part of her womanliness.The author declares that woman can use thealphabet only as Moliere predicted they would,in spelling out the verb amo; that they haveno occasion to peruse Ovid's Ars Amoris, sincethat is already the ground and limit of theirintuitive furnishing; that Madame Guionwould have been far more adorable had sheremained a beautiful ignoramus as naturemade her; that Ruth, Naomi, the Spartanwoman, the Amazons, Penelope, Andromache,Lucretia, Joan of Arc, Petrarch's Laura, thedaughters of Charlemagne, could not spell Page 49their names; while Sappho, Aspasia, Madamede Maintenon, and Madame de Stael couldread altogether too well for their good; finally,that if women were once permitted to readSophocles and work with logarithms, or tonibble at any side of the apple of knowledge,there would be an end forever to their sewingon buttons and embroidering slippers.
The social equality which means forced orunbidden association would be as much deprecatedand as strenuously opposed by the circlein which I move as by the most hide-boundSoutherner in the land. Indeed I have beenmore than once annoyed by the inquisitivewhite interviewer, who, with spectacles onnose and pencil and note-book in hand, comesto get some "points" about "your people." Page 112My "people" are just like other people--indeed,too like for their own good. They hate,they love, they attract and repel, they climbor they grovel, struggle or drift, aspire or despair,endure in hope or curse in vexation,exactly like all the rest of unregenerate humanity.Their likes and dislikes are as strong;their antipathies--and prejudices too I fear,are as pronounced as you will find anywhere;and the entrance to the inner sanctuary oftheir homes and hearts is as jealously guardedagainst profane intrusion.
So long as America remained a mere Englishcolony, drawing all her life and inspirationfrom the mother country, it may well bequestioned whether there was such a thing asAmerican literature. "Who ever reads anAmerican book?" it was scornfully asked inthe eighteenth century. Imitation is theworst of suicides; it cuts the nerve of originalityand condemns to mediocrity: and 'twasnot till the pen of our writers was dipped inthe life blood of their own nation and picturedout its own peculiar heart throbs and agoniesthat the world cared to listen. The nightingaleand the skylark had to give place to themocking bird, the bobolink and the whippoorwill,the heather and the blue bells of Britain, Page 176to our own, golden-rod and daisy; the insularand monarchic customs and habits of thoughtof old England must develop into the broader,looser, freer swing of democratic America,before her contributions to the world of thoughtcould claim the distinction of individualityand gain an appreciative hearing.
There are numerous other inadvertent misrepresentations in the book--such as supposingthat colored people voluntarily and deliberatelyprefer to keep to themselves in all publicplaces and that from choice "they have theirown neighborhoods, their own churches, theirown amusements, their own resorts,"--the Page 209intimation that there is "a black voice," ablack character, easy, irresponsible and fond ofwhat is soft and pleasant, a black ideal of artand a black barbaric taste in color, a blackaffinity--so that in some occult and dreadfulway one, only one-sixteenth related and totallyforeign by education and environment, canstill feel that one-sixteenth race calling hermore loudly than the fifteen-sixteenths. Iwish to do Mr. Howells the justice to admit,however, that one feels his blunders to bewholly unintentional and due to the fact thathe has studied his subject merely from theoutside. With all his matchless powers as anovelist, not even he can yet "think himselfimaginatively" into the colored man's place. 2b1af7f3a8
