Changes to Audiobook Distribution

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix is also available in audioThere are a lot of exciting things happening with regards to audiobook distribution and that will mean new links in 2019. There are two reasons for this: the first is that my relationship with Blackstone Audio, who has been distributing my audiobooks, is coming to an end on December 31st. The second reason is that my new distributor, Findaway Voices, distributes to more portals, both for consumers and for libraries.

• Apple.
My audiobooks have been available at Amazon, Audible and Apple since they were first recorded. That’s not going to change, although the link for each audiobook at Apple will be changing, probably in January. This is because my audiobooks will be delivered to Apple from Findaway instead of Audible and when a product comes from a different source, it gets a new product number.

Once again, my audiobooks will continue to be available through these avenues, but will have new links in the new year.

• 24Symbols, Storytel, hibooks, Playster.
My audiobooks will also be available through these subscription services in 2019.

• Libraries.
My audiobooks will continue to be available at Downpour, although again, the links will change because they’ll be coming from a different source. They’ll also be available at Overdrive, Bibliotheca, EBSCO, Follett, 3LeafGroup, hoopla, Odila, Perma-bound, Wheelers and Baker & Taylor, all for libraries.

The Crusader's Bride, #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix is also available in audioOne of the very exciting features offered by Findaway Voices is publisher control over pricing – which means that I can set up an audiobook sale. I’ll tell you more about that in 2019 after everything shifts over.

Audiobook distribution is changing, but I think this is a good thing.
