Are You Ready to Turn Your Book or Manuscript Into An Audiobook? MANA Can Help!

While consumers continue to show their love for print books, audiobooks are quickly becoming popular among consumers.

Downloaded audio is the fastest growing format with 28.8 percent growth from 2016 to 2017, according to the Association of American Publishers (AAP). 

In its 2018 StatShot Annual Report, the AAP found that audiobooks showed 146.2 percent growth from 2013 to 2017.

Book industry experts believe consumers enjoy audiobooks because they can listen to the books on-the-go instead of staying in one place as they would if they were reading a printed book. 

According to Statista, 57 percent of consumers listen to audiobooks on their smartphones, followed by 52 percent who listen on their desktop or laptop computer.

If you are a writer and want to join the audiobooks movement, (MANA) can help.
