The project is now out of our hands and in its final validation phase with audio book producer ACX, which is checking for sound quality and consistency. Once ARTL passes this quality control phase, it will be available on Audible.com, Amazon, and iTunes. There will no doubt be a part III to this series upon my muddling through promoting the audio book, which is going to be a very different animal from ebook or print promotion.
In the meantime, however, I wanted to give you a few highlights of my experiences working with Lloyd and submitting our project to ACX. There were a few bumps along the way–hopefully, these warning signs will help you when you take your own plunge into the audio book market.
