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.

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
