Exciting news here at Circle of Spears. As you may know if you've been following our Facebook or our Twitter A good portion of our back catalogue is now available on Audible. This is a relatively new development as previously Audible have only been able to offer third party producers like us the chance to host titles on their site if they were in the US. Not anymore! Preliminary sales have been very good and while the return on them is less than if you were to buy them on this site it's still more than worth it be able to offer it to our customers on such a convenient and well known platform.
All of our future releases including the upcoming The Sign in the Moonlight by David Tallerman will be able to made available there subject to the author's consent. All of us here at Circle of Spears have narrated books for authors on Audible before, just search for us. Here though we are taking the role of producers rather than just voice artist. Audible has a large number of self published and independent author's books on their sight due to running a sister website called ACX. ACX, or the Audiobook Creation Exchange allows authors or smaller audiobook producers to place their titles and either have people audition to narrate them or upload the already finished projects to their website. In the case of our titles of course, we do the former. It's fantastic service and opens up the possibility of getting an audiobook made to people who otherwise might not be able to afford to have it made, something which is very much in keeping with our company philosophy.
This does not mean we aren't still going to be producing physical audio CDs and selling them here and at the sales events we go to. There are what you might term some website exclusive titles which you will only get here or perhaps if you are lucky enough to meet us in person at an event somewhere. Details for those events will be posted here and all across our social media platforms.
Just on a personal note I'd like to say a big thank you to all those people who responded to my last blog entry about being a dyslexic who reads audiobooks. Keep your eyes open for more updates soon and sign up to our newsletter there will be a new one out soon you won't want to miss.
