Audiobooks are growing fast in the publishing market! How do you hop on this bandwagon and create a successful audiobook? Well, you came to the right place! Follow along and learn tips and tricks on how you can write your next novel with audio in mind.
- Simplify your writing.
One big difference between print and audiobooks is that in print you can go back and re-read with ease. While you can still rewind on an audiobook it is not the same as browsing back to the previous paragraph. Which is why simplifying your writing will make an audiobook go smoothly for the reader.
- Read aloud.
Something so simple can go a long way in creating a successful audiobook. Make sure you read everything aloud! Pass it along to friends and family to get another opinion. Narrators are performing your novel, so when you read aloud really read it! Sell the characters and make it come to life.
- Make it a script.
Going back to the performance of it all remember when the narrator gets a hold of your manuscript it will be a script. Think about your writing being vivid- Is it fun to read? Do you need all the ‘he said she saids’? Another helpful tip is to record yourself and see how it sounds!
