In this session, narrator-producer Andi Arndt and audio engineer Amanda Rose Smith discuss the exploding audiobook industry, which took in $2.5 billion in 2017 with an estimated 79,000 titles produced.
There are unlimited opportunities in audiobooks for diligent, deadline-driven audio engineers, working for publisher-owned audio production houses as well as indie producers, authors and narrators. Andi and Amanda will let you know a little more about the typical workflow of an audiobook editor and answer your questions about how you can learn the craft and take advantage of this booming sector of the publishing industry.
