Nonfiction authors, if you haven’t considered recording your own audiobooks — or even offering an audiobook — Joanna Penn’s latest podcast guest wants to talk to you.
Derek Doepker, author of seven books on peak performance, habits, fitness, and entrepreneurship, has no doubts that writers of any genre can benefit from having audiobooks available.
After all, there’s a segment of people who have time to listen but not read — why would you turn your back on that market?
The answer, of course, could be related to finances, and there’s no question that a professional narrator is a significant investment.
For nonfiction writers, though, Doepker and Penn both believe DIY narration is a great opportunity.
Learn how Doepker saves money (and makes efficient use of his personal editing strategy) by recording his own audiobooks over at The Creative Penn, where you can read a transcript of the conversation or listen to it.
