Imagine holding your published book for the first time. Pretty exciting isn’t it? Now imagine there’s also an audiobook. With an actor reading aloud every single word you wrote, bringing your story to life. We think that’s very exciting, so we thought we’d speak to the person who helps make that happen: Audio Editor Abi Fenton.
The Authonomy team has the pleasure of working in close proximity to the HarperCollins Audio team, which is how we know Abi works very hard – probably because she’s so busy publishing audiobooks for almost every book published by HC. She has kindly agreed to answer our questions about what her job entails, what goes in to making an audiobook, and how audiobooks could be the answer to never having to put a book down. She also has some impressive facts about the Game of Thrones audiobooks. Read on to find out more about the fascinating world of Audiobooks.
