aois21 media launching audiobook pilot program

Sector has seen impressive growth in past two years

MOUNT VERNON, VA – aois21 media, LLC is happy to announce its launch of a pilot program this summer to produce audiobooks. The company has begun hiring staff and constructing a facility to record fully produced audiobooks at competitive prices.

After our continued work in podcast production, aois21 is taking the next logical step in producing full audiobooks of aois21 titles. Starting with Polk’s Soliloquy by Keith F. Shovlin and The Will of the Magi by Paul Dickinson Russell, this will allow aois21 to move into a market that has seen high adoption rates and robust growth over the past two years.

Once the pilot productions are completed, audiobook production will be offered to other aois21 Creatives as well as to others on a pay-for-service model through the ePress21 self-publishing imprint. Chief of Audio Production Zach C. Cohen will oversee the recording and production of audiobooks, and aois21 is currently constructing a recording studio for both podcast and audiobook production. Vocal artists are also being recruited to offer authors the option of having their book read by one of our readers.

All audiobooks will be available on iTunes, GooglePlay, Audible, and after they are completed. Additionally, aois21 will make them available for sale at in-person events on USB flash drives, just as we have done with eBooks since our launch.

"We have long planned to make this move into audiobooks, and I am happy to say that we have reached that mile marker,” said Keith F. Shovlin, aois21’s publisher. "I voraciously devour audiobooks, just as the audience has trended that way the past few years, so it is only right that our Creatives take advantage of the audiobook revolution."
