The Alliance of Independent Authors has provided a deep-dive into writing for audio.
It comes courtesy of two contributors: Jules Horne, a writer with a background in broadcasting, radio drama, writing plays, and performance poetry; and Ryan Hicks, from the audiobook proofing company Pozotron.
Horne provides a number of passages that illustrate the optimal sentence structure and length for audio (along with explanations of why one version is stronger than the other).
Hicks, meanwhile, shares how to check whether your book will be audio-friendly and why it's a worthwhile endeavor even if you don't expect to offer an audio version.
ALLi's ultimate guide to writing for audio is up on the organization's blog.
