The Audio Publishers Association is once again encouraging bestselling authors to share their enthusiasm for audiobooks with fans during June is Audiobook Month. On June 1, 2012, authors and narrators will take to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs, and e-newsletters to talk about their positive experiences with audiobooks.
Last June, authors came out in full force for the audio format, with audiobook messages reaching more than 7.5 million people. In 2012, the APA’s goal is to double that number, bringing more than 15 million people into a discussion about audiobooks.
More details are available at www.audiopub.org. To speak with an author about their support for audiobooks, please contact Kaitlin Friedmann at (609) 297-2215.
