With audio rising in popularity, many publishing gurus are encouraging authors to not only ensure they make their books available in audio, but to also consider the audio version while writing for print.

And a few authors, of course, are going a step further: making the audio product the first (or only) version.

Malcolm Gladwell, of Outliers and The Tipping Point fame, recently released a book that was imagined as an audio project and then adapted to print.

The Passive Guy shares some excerpts from the Wall Street Journal’s article on Gladwell’s The Bomber Mafia (the full article is behind a paywall).

Novelist Sophie Masson is in a similar situation, having received a grant to write a book primarily for audio. 

She’s still working on A Turn off the Path but has shared some of her experiences writing for audio in a post at Writer Unboxed.
