SkyDance Mountain Audiobooks ~ A whole new world of Inspiration and Imagination…
AUTHORS & PUBLISHERS – We can help you reach a whole new world of “readers” by turning your book into an audiobook.
Once you have determined that you want your title produced into an Audiobook, you still have a couple more decisions to make. We will walk you through the step-by-step process, answer a few questions and help you determine what your exact needs are.
Getting started is as simple as 1, 2, 3…
1. Answer a few basic questions –
– What is the length of your book?
– What is the genre of your book, who is your audience, and what “voice” and style of narration and music does your book call for?
– Do you want a Standard Audiobook or an Enhanced Audiobook?
– Will you be needing any Graphic Design services? (For your audiobook or otherwise?)
– Do you want an Audio Excerpt, Video Excerpt or Book Trailer for your website as a marketing tool?
2. Authorize the production by sending the following –
– Final manuscript of your book (emailed pdf works fine)
– Signed copy of our simple and basic contract along with a 50% deposit to
3. Give us your creative input, eager anticipation and patience –
Audiobook production is a detailed and creative process. Collaboration and synergy are part of what help make it fun and magical! We invite you to be as involved as you desire, to ensure that your book is heard in your “voice” and that the final product best represents you and your story.
When the first draft of the Audiobook is finished, we will send it to you in digital format for your final approval. Once you have made any corrections or changes and signed off on final approval, we then make the changes and corrections and send you the final product both in digital format and physical copies.
Your satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed!
