Thanks to everyone who completed the survey on audiobooks (not filled it in? It’s still open, just click here…) – here are the results so far, along with my thoughts…
This one was interesting – I’ve not got into audiobooks (yet) myself and I’d wondered whether there was any crossover between those who listened and those who read eBooks. It turns out there is – a quarter of you listen to eBooks often, and another thirty-five percent listen from time to time.
This was one of the big questions I had – would anyone be interested in an audiobook version of Wanderer’s Escape? The aim would be to get new readers/listeners too of course but getting some initial downloads and reviews would be important to getting the ball rolling. With over a quarter of you saying you’d definitely buy it I know the audiobook is something worth pursuing.
I threw this one in to see the response and it’s interesting, but having given recording a try I think a whole book would be beyond me. Thanks for the vote of confidence from those who said yes though!
Now this is something I can manage, and it seems to be pretty popular too. I’ll definitely do something along these lines sometime soon.
Not really a surprise considering where the survey was hosted, but nice to see anyway.
So what have I learnt? Well, there’s definitely enough interest in an audiobook version of Wanderer’s Escape to make it worth doing. There’s a lot of work involved in getting the venture up and running and I have a few ideas on how to take it forwards, I’m going to let them simmer for a couple of months then probably do whatever feels like a good idea at the time.
Thanks to everyone who took part, and if you didn’t then there’s still time, just head over to the survey.
