Dean: I mentioned a few episodes back that I had a few audio books out, and I got several emails asking how that works.

 

Question 1: Where can you sell audio books?

ACX – CreateSpace – Your own website – CD Baby

 

Question 2: Should I narrate my own books or not?

Doing it yourself:

Are you comfortable doing it?

Do you sound natural doing it?

Can you do the voices or accents?

Paying someone else to narrate your story

Where can you find narrators?
