There are various ways that companies charge for audiobook production. One of the most common is a price ‘per finished hour’. This means the true cost of an audiobook to you isn’t fully known until the project is complete. Yes, companies will give an estimate of what this will be but we do not like the uncertainty of this.
With our audiobook projects we will send you a set price for the conversion of the audiobook. Below you will find our standard rate. This is the rate used for most of our audiobook projects.
|Dedicated voice actors selected from sample auditions.||Yes. We provide a dedicated voice actor, sound engineer and director so everyone can concentrate on what they do best.|
|Recorded in a studio||Yes. We record in a dedicated studio located just outside Cheltenham in the UK.|
|Quality assured against manuscript at time of recording||Yes. The director’s role at a recording session is to make sure your words are conveyed in the best way possible. This includes the emotion of your writing but also making sure your words are accurately represented.|
|Audio edited to remove mistakes||Yes. Our process ensures fewer mistakes will have got through to this stage due to having multiple people involved before this; however those that do get through will be corrected.|
|Audio mastered and levelled||Yes|
|One round of author changes||Yes|
|Final audio supplied as MP3s, M4B, ACX-ready files and high-quality WAVs||Yes. We are platform agnostic and can provide your audio in whatever form you need.|
