Google Audio for readers and writers!

I recently learned about google play allowing authors to upload for audio FREE. So I thought I have nothing to lose, and I did it.

There was a small learning curve, not too bad. Upload your book in EPUB (you can convert free online if you need to) fill out the blurb, price, all the fun stuff and get your bank account verified.

Bingo-Bango 2 days later and I have two books on e-read google play, or audio! And for listeners they are set at $2 to $4 a book, depending on country. That is a massive discount compared to Amazons Audible.

I plan on uploading all my books, slowly there is work to it, but why the heck not??? And because I can’t post video here, you can click through and hear a sample above 🙂

Series summary:

For any brave soul who has put a short story or novel into the public domain for public scrutiny, they’ll well know that feeling of fear-filled excitement as they wait for the reviews to roll in – will their work be met with universal acclaim or be cursed by voices of condemnation, the dreaded 1-star reviews? Now, most authors when confronted by a scathing 1-star review will, quite sensibly, shrug it off and put it out of their mind. Sometimes of course, the review might be so unjustified the author feels compelled to reply online (this rarely turns out well!). But what if the author truly doesn’t take kindly to public criticism and possesses some dubious means by which to confront their reviewer in the real world? The Karen Carter series by R.E. Sargent tackles this…
