Are You A Writer? Make Your Book Talk:

As a writer I have discovered that several Nigerians do not like reading. As a concerned writer like myself, dont you think that our books should have an audio version, such that people can just listen rather than read. They can listen with their phones. their CD or DVD player. They can study while taking their bath, driving a car, in a bus, waiting in a line, jogging etc. Fun, isn't it? Don't you think this will make more Nigerians " read" more? What is your opinion?

Hi visualtutorng,

I am happy about your comment. That shows many of us are beggining to think in the same direction. If you have read more through audio books, I think we should start encouraging reading culture by taking audio book campaign to schools. Thanks also for beeing interested in marketing any of my own audio books. They may be ready for distributions as time goes on. Please send me your phone contact at dozieonwe@yahoo.co.uk, so that I will reach you when neccessary.

Audio books has been the trend in recent times. It helps people to read more and you'll agree with me that it is faster and more convenient. I personally have listened to more audio books than this year and I'm happy abt it. Having the audio version of your book is encouraging.

All you need is a transcriber (reader). Who can record with a laptop.

When that is ready, you can take to a studio to be edited and mass produced.

Audio books are usually more interesting when transcribed by the author. However note that you'll need to be trained on this.

I'll be happy to sell your books when they are ready.

Yea Globaljobs,

I can convert your book to audio. By the time I know the size of your work, and some other details I can tell you the requirements. You can mail me at dozieonwe@yahoo.co.uk. Moreover, it will be fine if you figure out from your readers if they will like the audio version of your work. You can share their comments with us here, such that other writers may know.
