Features of the Audible Author Services program include:
- Open access. Any author who has an audiobook available for sale at Audible.com or Audible.co.uk can enroll.
- Easy sign-up. Click to sign up in minutes.
- An array of tools through which authors can promote their work. Every author who participates in Audible Author Services receives a quick-start plan for easy and effective promotion of their work via social media and other channels. Authors will also gain access to free copies of their audiobook, links to their product-detail pages on Audible.com, the ability to address AudibleListener members on Audible.com product-detail pages, and personalized support from Audible’s teams.
- $1 per sale of the digital audiobook through Audible.com channels. After sign-up, every time Audible sells a digital audiobook through its regular channels, the author receives a dollar as an honorarium. One hundred sales equal $100; one thousand sales equal $1,000. These honorarium payments are made quarterly directly from Audible—in addition to royalties already in place in an author’s audiobook contracts and agreements.
