Since 2006, I’ve had the dream of publishing my own line of audiobooks. I partially fulfilled that dream in 2014 when I used works in the public domain to start Jewel Audiobooks, my audiobook publishing company. However, I’ve always wanted to publish contemporary titles.
I haven’t done so because I don’t know how to acquire the audio rights needed to produce these audiobooks. I’ve extensively researched the topic on-line, and I even bought a book titled How Authors Sell Publishing Rights. Unfortunately, everything I found was vague and didn’t answer my questions.
I decided to consult an attorney who specializes in intellectual property and publishing.
Even better, why not talk to an attorney who’s also a Grammy-winning audiobook producer!
Best idea of all, why not host a webinar so other narrators can learn with me!
I’m thrilled to announce that Jessica Kaye will be my guest speaker on the webinar titled How to Acquire Audiobook Rights!
We’re meeting on Tuesday 9 August at 8pm ET/5pm PT, and the cost is $49 per person.
Jessica has over 25 years experience in audiobook creation and publishing. She’s the founder of Big Happy Family Audio, an audiobook distribution company, as well as an attorney in the firm Kaye & Mills.
