    I was just reading about this concept yesterday in a special mailing from Writer’s Digest about spokenbookspublishing.com–actually on their website.

  3. Administrator Says:

    That’s interesting, Georganna. It’s different from Podiobooks in quite a few ways. You don’t narrate your own book. You have to pay them, although you do get revenue from the books if someone buys them. They don’t seem to have their catalog on their Web site. Also, they don’t release the books in serial form.
