Learn how to enlist the indie bookstore community in promoting your audiobook(s).

Booksellers have always been discoverers of the next great read. While our Libro.fm team is decidedly small, we have a big team of more than 4,000 booksellers making audiobook recommendations, curating playlists, and handselling your audiobook(s). Our network of booksellers is what makes Libro.fm unique and contributes to our broader influence through New York Times sales reporting on behalf of more than 1,000 independent bookstore locations.

We work with every major publisher and hundreds of independents. Our catalog of 100,000+ DRM-free digital audiobooks are available for a la carte download and through our membership program. Customers can then listen to their audiobooks on our free iOS and Android apps.

How You Can Help

While independent bookstores are thriving and audiobook growth is strong, we need your help. 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, tell readers and listeners how to purchase your audiobook(s) through their local bookstore.

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.

Our Stance on 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.

How to Get Your Audiobook on Libro.fm

If you don’t see your audiobook on Libro.fm and/or want to find out how to make it happen, send an email to authors@libro.fm. We can point you in the right direction on the best way to produce your own audiobook or get it distributed.
