Audiobook Empire is a new, but forceful presence on the audiobook production scene. The Empire's master puppeteer is Jess Herring, but you may know her as Jess the Audiobookworm. Jess has run Audiobookworm Promotions for nearly 5 years where she has gained a thorough understanding of the audiobook industry and its beloved community.
The Empire is her newest adventure. How far will it reach? Let's find out!
The Empire is open to all. We aren't genre-specific, although genre imprints may form in the future.
Your standard rates. You know what rates are fair to you and the Empire respects that. Simply tell us your rates and we'll send you appropriate projects in that range.
It's that straightforward.
As a rule, narrators will not be expected to do their own post-production. The Empire has its own post people waiting in the wings.
With that said, if you have a preference as to who does your post-production, just let us know.
In general, yes. Live streaming of recording sessions can be a great (and fun!) promotional tool. However, permission will need to be obtained from the rights holder if anything is to be recorded. In fact, it's probably a good idea to get permission whether streaming or recording.
Promotional support will always be part of the deal at Audiobook Empire. With or without review codes (but hopefully with), blogger outreach and social media campaigns can happen. When review codes are available, blogger outreach becomes blogger + reviewer outreach. With Jess's promotional contacts, a virtual army can be raised to support the Empire, its Talent Legion, and its titles.
