I’ve just created a home audio booth, and I know lots of indie authors out there want to do the same but have no idea where to start. So I thought I’d share the process and show you how to build your own DIY audio booth.
Why Build a Home Audio Booth?
Most writers by now know that they need to jump on the audio book bandwagon ASAP. The audiobook industry is booming. That’s swell, but what about those of us who can’t afford to spend $6000 paying a professional narrator to narrate, edit and master an audiobook for you? Well, we can do it ourselves. I’m seeing more and more indie authors taking the proverbial bull by the horns and DIY’ing audiobooks. And it’s not like we haven’t seen this kind of behavior before. Look what happened with video proliferation and the rise of YouTube. iPhone home movies and the growth of DIY authenticity on YouTube exploded. I think it’s happening with audio too.
Here’s my quick tips on building a home studio. [Read more…] about How to Build a DIY Audio Booth
Hello and welcome back to episode four of The Rebel Author Podcast. I am so excited for this interview. When I was transcribing the interview, I found myself taking loads of notes. Kristina is an absolute editing whizz and shows you how to self-edit better.
In the intro, I talk about the two blog posts I’ve been pulling together on audio resources. The first one is a huge list of resources I’ve been bingeing my way through and I recommend for anyone trying to either grow their knowledge of audio creation or trying to produce DIY audiobooks.
The second one will take you step by step through the creation of my audio booth in my very very tiny office! That post will be published on 28th October 2019, if you’re reading this post after that date, you can use this link.
I also talk about Lindsay Buroker’s return to the world of podcasting. I used to love listening to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Marketing Podcast, but it stopped about six months ago. I’m delighted to tell you she’s back with Jo Lallo and Andrea Pearson, in their new podcast is called Six Figure Authors. Their tagline:
Six Figure Authors is the podcast that helps you take your writing career to the next level.

I’ve been obsessing about audio lately. Not only do I listen to a metric fuckton of audio books and podcasts, but I’ve been consuming my body weight in instruction guides and nonfiction resources in an effort to learn about the creation of audio itself. Why? Because I’m desperate to record and publish my nonfiction as audio books. After starting a podcast, it gave me the confidence I could do it, I figure it’s the next learning step, and frankly, if others are doing it, why the hell can’t I? In this post, I’ve pulled together some of the resources for creating audio books that I’ve been studying, I hope they help you learn more about audio book creation too. In my next post, I’ll take you through my step by step process for creating a mini audio booth. [Read more…] about Resources for Creating Audio Books and Podcasts
