How to Record and Publish an Audiobook

I have had the pleasure of helping to record and produce four audiobooks over the past few years. In the process, I have identified key steps when it comes to streamlining the process. Here are eight steps to recording your first audiobook.

Step 1  Record it. There are a few different strategies for this step, and I’ll unpack those for you.

Step 2  Edit. Whether you do it yourself or outsource it, it is a necessary step.

Step 3 Quality Control and Review. Get a friend to listen, read, and note any errors.

Step 4 Make the Changes. Go back and make the changes. There is one vital piece, and I’ll share that with you.

Step 5 Have someone else listen to it. Another round of edits can make all the difference.

Step 6 Add something, not in the written version. Listeners love an easter egg.

Step 7 Run it through

Step 8 Submit it to ACX.

It is a long process, and there are many sub-steps within each piece. With this outline, you will save yourself lots of time in the long run.
