How Libro.fm helps authors promote their audiobooks
There are a couple of ways Libro.fm helps authors promote audiobooks:
- First, we can build a custom author page for you (see a sample author page).
- Second, we can create enhanced audiobook pages with videos, reviews, and links to your website or social media handles (see a sample enhanced audiobook page).
Send an email to email@example.com if you want to work with us on promoting your audiobooks.
The Libro.fm difference
View the list of reasons why customers choose Libro.fm over that other company, including the fact that Libro.fm pays you more money for every audiobook sold through an indie bookstore. We want to build a more sustainable, community-driven ecosystem.
Libro.fm opposes audiobook exclusives
While Libro.fm has tens of thousands of audiobooks and more than 99% of all the NYT bestsellers, there are a few titles that are unavailable because of exclusive licenses granted by audiobook publishers and authors to Amazon’s Audible. We are fiercely independent and oppose Amazon’s efforts to keep the indies and others out of the audiobook business.
How do you prevent Amazon’s Audible from shutting out indie bookstores? First, understand the contract with your publisher: will your publisher produce the audiobook or license it to another publisher? Either way, add language into your agreement that requires your audiobook to be sold through independent bookstores. Second, if your publisher is planning to contract or license the audiobook version, ensure that your publisher puts language in their licensing agreement that prevents the audiobook publisher from selling your title exclusively to Amazon’s Audible.
Your support matters
Your fans love you, they listen to you. If you’d like to help fuel independent bookstores across the nation, and push for fair payment of your work, join our movement. Please share the links to your audiobook(s) on Libro.fm on your website and through social media. And if your audiobook is not available on Libro.fm due to an exclusivity clause or other contract, make your voice heard by talking to your agent and publisher.
Feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors and Indies
Authors love independent bookstores for some of the same reasons the rest of us do: they are hubs for community, their booksellers make fantastic recommendations, and they are great physical spaces to celebrate love of books.Read the Blog Post
