That is the down side of having a friend who does voice-over work and is the voice of OnStar and the voice you hear in airports telling you the moving side walk is ending along with the white zone is for loading and unloading only.

Truthfully, I have never given it a chance, so now is the time. Right off, Rachel points out, “If you convert your book into an audiobook, you’ll be able to reach a whole new audience of people you couldn’t have before.” I never thought of it that way.

As a bonus you will find a downloadable template for a much needed document and detailed instructions on how to market with it.
